HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL
Pearsall’s Lady Mavs followed up tournament play at the Maverick Classic with a 58-28 non-district loss to Marion last week in girls’ basketball action.
Crystal City claimed the title at the annual Maverick Classic on the girls’ side and Eagle Pass was second overall at the event.
Despite their struggles at the tournament and against Marion, PHS Head Coach Victoria Rodriguez sees progress in her young squad.
“We traveled to Marion on Monday and fell short in that game,” she said. “But the team, overall, is coming together. It is difficult on everyone.
“Our three older kids are the only ones with varsity experience and they are surrounded by young kids. Not only are the younger kids trying to figure out the varsity level but everyone is still trying to gain the trust and chemistry in each other.”
Rodriguez believes she has the talent to be successful this year but just needs her team to grow and gain experience during pre-district play.
“All the pieces are there for us to have a good year,” she said. “Right now it is about reps to gain the trust, confidence, and chemistry with one another.
“All these games before district are practice. Like I tell the girls all the time, it isn’t about the other team, our focus is on what we are doing and how we handle every possession. We need to focus on getting everything sorted on our team before we worry about our opponents.”
Pearsall was at San Antonio West Campus Tuesday evening and will be in action at the Natalia tournament this weekend.
