A Pool of five teams shows a bright spot in one High School Girls Varsity Basketball Team
(San Antonio)- This past weekend Girls Varsity Basketball suited up for the Northside (NISD) Basketball Tournament. The following teams showed up to compete for championship and runner up, Flower Mound High School (Dallas), East Central High School (San Antonio-SA), Churchill High School (SA), Wagner High School (SA) and Brennan High School (SA).
Although all teams may not play each other during regular season, which starts this week, it was a good snapshot of where certain teams may stand and the outcome shows one team that may be the one to watch.
All teams brought talent, some a lot more than others. Flower Mound mowed through all the teams right along with East Central to then finally meant one another in the Championship Game. The game to see was Wagner vs. East Central. We all know what Wagner is known for and that is basketball- athletics of all sorts. Wagner lost Kiana Williams who moved on to Stanford this year, but East Central kept their Baylor Signed NaLyssa Smith who doesn’t disappoint.
Unfortunately it is not looking like it is going to be Wagner’s year as they transition thru losses of players and injured players while East Central is coming out of the gate strong. East Central plowed through Wagner with the final score being 53-37.
Flower Mound and East Central met in the championship game and East Central took home the number one trophy and won the tournament at a final score against Flower Mound of 65-48.
If you’re a high school sports fan and are looking for a team to follow, East Central Girls Varsity Basketball may be the one this year. Time will tell, especially after East Central meets Judson.
