First Playoff Game Of 2014 Season, Leads to Bi-District Champions

The North Shore Football Mustangs marched into Pasadena Memorial Stadium, played 48 minutes of hard fought football, then walked right on out with a Bi-District Championship as they defeated the Dobie Longhorns. Down by only a touchdown at halftime, they put the game out of reach. They now move on to face Clear Springs this Friday at 7pm! Good Luck!!

 

 

Claudia Santos, NS Cross Country, Runs Her Way Into Record Books

This past weekend, Nov. 8th, distance runners converged on Round Rock, TX as the site for the UIL State Cross Country Meet. North Shore was well represented by, Claudia Santos, who became the first Lady Mustang in school history to qualify for the meet. The opportunity to run at this level is a testament to her tough work ethic and commitment to the sport of long distance running.

 

 

North Shore Girls Basketball Preview

Kayla Mack never will forget the feeling of pride that overwhelmed her when she watched her North Shore classmates win the Class 5A boys basketball state championship in March.

 

Unfortunately, reality quickly set in. The offseason loomed. Mack hated it.

 

"I was ready go play basketball again right away," the junior guard said. "I didn't want to wait until November."

 

Luckily for Mack, November means the new season is here. And that's not all. She and her North Shore teammates have a legitimate opportunity to do the same thing the boys team did last season.

Reigning state champion Manvel, last season's Region III-5A powerhouse, has lost two of its three leading contributors. As a result, the race for the top girls team in Houston could include several teams battling to be the leader of the pack.

GPHS Volleyball Post Season Honors
Congratulations to the following varsity Lady Jackets for earning 21-5A All-District Honors for the 2014 season.


Sophomore, Alana Perez received 1st Team All-District Honors.  Alana is a 2nd year varsity starter who went from role player as a freshman to dominating the floor as a sophomore.  Alana brings the “whole package” to the program; she is the go to hitter on offense, can block all three positions, plays fantastic defense, is the primary passer off serve, and can place the ball anywhere when serving.  Alana played in all 100 games this season, served 89% with 60 service aces; she had an 87% passer rating, 449 digs and 15 blocks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Senior, Yesenia Pulido received 2nd Team All-District Honors.  Yesenia played on the JV team her freshman year at GPHS.  Then suffered ACL tears both her sophomore and junior years and was unable to compete at any level.  This year she came to the coaching staff physically prepared for competition but two years down in experience.  For most athletes this would have been a tough obstacle to overcome, but not Yesenia.  Not only did she compete but by the end of the season she dominated as a middle blocker and had developed her defensive game in the back court.  Yesenia played in all 100 games, served 88% with 18 service aces; she had an 83% passer rating, 192 digs and 36 blocks.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Junior, Katera Johnson received Honorable Mention Honors.  Katera is a 1st year varsity starter who started the season sharing the setting work but due to injury was asked to carry the offensive load for most the season.  Katera made progress as a setter every game and by the end of the season put the ball where our hitters could finish the play.  Katera played in 99 of the 100 games played this season, served 93% and had 14 aces; she had 164 digs, set the ball 1662 times and had 377 assists.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Junior, Taylor Dearing received Honorable Mention Honors.  Taylor is a 2nd year varsity starter who started has a setter her sophomore year and was asked to play setter, pin hitter, and libero this season.  Taylor did a great job tackling whatever assignment the coaching staff gave her and made an impact every game.  We are especially proud of her stepping into the libero position late in the season and owning the position.  Taylor played 99 out of the 100 games played, she served 93% for the season and had 27 aces; she had an 87% passer rating, had 307 digs and 11 blocks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 21-5A District also recognizes those who maintained a 90% or above during the entire season.  Galena Park High School’s entire varsity team earned Academic All-District Honors.  Congratulations to: senior, Yesenia Pulido; juniors, Katera Johnson, Anne Bamba, Taylor Dearing, Gabby Flores, and Stephanie Sarmiento, and sophomores, Alana Perez, Christina Herrera, and MacKenzie Swanson.
