BACK-TO-BACK

2018 MAVERICK CLASSIC

Pearsall's Lady Mavs maintained their unbeaten record and tore through the tournament field at the annual Maverick Classic last week to claim the title for a second straight season.

“I'm proud of the way our kids played, showed some resiliency and responded when things got tough,” Lady Mavs Head Coach Arlene Silva said. “The main thing in preseason is to find consistency and for players to excel in their roles and responsibilities to their team.”

Pearsall has been consistently winning since the start of the season, jumping out to a 6-0 record prior to tournament play.

They then opened the tournament with a lopsided 59-0 win over the San Antonio Milton Lee Academy Wolfpack. Pearsall took on Lee Academy in a non-district affair prior to the tournament and won that outing 101-12.
