Finding Motivation In Win, NS Tennis Look For One More Win Against Yellow Jackets

NSSH Varsity Tennis closed district play by dominating Memorial HS on Tuesday afternoon. The final score of 16-3 reflected the hard work the Mustangs have put in this season. Coming up next will be a re-match against South side rivals Galena Park HS. The Jackets are hoping to avenge their early-season loss to the Mustangs.

 

 

Galena Park Homecoming Showdown

Homecoming night for the Galena Park Yellowjackets was one that can be described by turnovers.  On a beautiful Friday evening, GP went head-to-head with the Spartans of Porter High School from New Caney ISD.  A great crowd donned in black and gold with bells from their mums ringing were packed into Galena Park ISD Stadium to watch their Yellowjackets earn their first district win.  Both teams came out slow, going scoreless throughout the first half.  Each team had their share of turnovers hampering their offensive attacks, but it was Porter, also winless in district, who would light up the scoreboard first.  The Jackets struck back two minutes later to take a 7-6 lead, but more turnovers for the Yellowjackets would cause GP to fall at home, 20-7.

 

 

Lady Jackets Celebrate Homecoming

On October 17th the Lady Jackets played host to New Caney Porter for Homecoming.  The day began with young men and women decking the GP halls with their beauty and chivalry.  The Homecoming pep rally had been hyped for two weeks, and the Galena Park proud didn’t disappoint.  Alumni, athletes and fans packed the gym displaying their best black and gold spirit.  With all the excitement and spirit flowing through the halls, the Lady Jackets were determined to put up a fight against the district leading Spartans.

 

 

Woodland Acres Gets Stung by Anthony Aguirre

The Hornets lost a frustrating game to an inferior team and program. The Lady Hornets stepped on the floor intent on setting up offensive opportunities by passing, setting and attacking every ball.  They were tremendously successful implementing this plan; however they played a team who played nothing more than “backyard BBQ volleyball”. Since, running an offense means that more errors are likely to occur while just sending the first contact back over the net minimizes errors WAMS lost simply due to poor odds.  Despite the 20-25 and 18-25 loss, the Hornets played together all match and continue to practice hard every day.

 

 

Woodland Acres Pitch Shutout Against Alice Johnson

The Gold pitched a shutout in their 6-0 victory over Alice Johnson.  Daniel Llanos and Alphonse Trahan led the way running the ball for the Hornets.  Alphonse also scored the only touchdown of the game.  The defense was led by Cesar Bolanos, Daniel Jimenez, and Donovin Cavazos who made plays all over the field.

 

 

Galena Park Middle's Black Cloud

Throughout the history of the National Football League, great defenses have been given nicknames.  The Minnesota Vikings defenses of the 70’s were the “Purple People Eaters”.  The Pittsburgh Steelers defenses of the 70’s were the “Steel Curtain”.  Great Chicago Bears’ defenses are normally called the “Monsters of the Midway”.  Well add a fourth great nickname to the list because the 7th Black defense, or the “Black Cloud” has been shutting teams down and has them begging for mercy.  They pitched a shutout Tuesday night against a talented King Panther team.  These boys epitomize the concept of “team”.  Everyone has been making key plays on both sides of the ball.  It has been a coach’s dream so far.  With a 32-0 victory over King the team remains undefeated at 4-0.  Eli Quintero, Antonio Alanis, and Carlos Gutierrez earned MVP status for Tuesday nights contest.

 

 

Jacket Tennis Team Battles to the End

On October 14th, the Jacket tennis team took on C.E. King and battled to the very end.  The girls’ doubles teams would grab a lead early winning 3 out of the 4 doubles games, including the mixed doubles game.  The guys would drop all doubles games and struggle in the singles arena as Juan Leija was the only mens’ winner.  The Lady Jackets would continue their strong season winning two of the singles games and ending in a 5-5 tie with King’s girls.  The match was not decided until the last 6 courts were filled and the Jackets trailed 7-6.  The Jackets would drop the last 6 games and lose 13-6.  Congratulations to Allie Vasquez who ended her season undefeated in singles play and to Joana Aguilar who won 5 of 7 games during district play.
