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.

High Powered Panthers Tough to Tame

The Panthers, from Sheldon ISD, hosted Galena Park at Crenshaw Stadium on a beautiful Friday evening.  Sheldon ISD urged everyone to wear pink and both teams obliged by wearing pink wristbands and other apparel to give honor and recognition to breast cancer awareness month.  The Yellowjackets were not afraid of the state ranked squad and opened the game with an onside kick that was nearly recovered.  The Panthers appeared to fumble on the 6th play of the game, but their offense was awarded the ball that led to a touchdown 3 plays later.  The Jackets offense struggled early, but tried to gain some momentum with a fake punt that appeared to be a completed pass, which was ultimately ruled incomplete.   A pair of turnovers by the offense and numerous failures at stopping the Panthers on 3rd down allowed the Panthers to generate points.  The Jacket offense tried to punch it in late, but was stopped just short of the goal line.  Galena Park fought hard and tried to slow the Panthers high powered offense down, but in the end were unsuccessful, falling 55-0.

 

 

Galena Park Lady Jackets Honor Tori

On October 28th the Galena Park Lady Jackets honored one of our fallen.  This last July Victoria “Tori” Castillo was killed in a tragic car accident.  She was only 20 years old and left behind a baby girl, husband, father, mother, and brother.  The volleyball team took a few moments before the game to honor her memory and the time she spent on the GP hardwood.  The team gave her parents a signed volleyball t-shirt, game film of Tori, and some flowers.  It truly was a special tribute to the “sisterhood” of the game.  The Lady Jackets also took a moment to recognize all the dedication and sacrifice of our parents and special recognition to our lone senior Yesenia Pulido.

 

 

High Expectations Against Alice Johnson

Expectations are high for this year’s 8th grade Black team.  They returned home from their thrilling one point win at C.E. King to the friendly confines of Dement Field to take on Alice Johnson.  Although the team did not play up to expectations, Alice Johnson was no match for the Yellowjackets.  The defense pitched their second shutout of the season by a score of 24-0.  Pedro Hernandez and Carlos Guzman both had interceptions to help stifle the Alice Johnson offense.  John Bishop ran the ball well throughout the game.  The Jackets still have a strong chance of capturing a share of the district title.  They host a poised and ready North Shore team next week at Dement.  The players of the game were Ramiro Serna and John Bishop.

 

 

GPMS Meets North Shore Middle

The GPMS 8th grade Gold team was “in it to win it” against the Mustangs.  They beat the Mustangs in two games continuing their winning streak!  Their communication on the court and focus were the keys to victory.  Players of the week this week are Emily Gonzalez and Samantha Montemayor.

 

 

Woodland Acres Plays Best Game of Season

The B team played their best game of the season against Cunningham Thursday evening.  The Hornets defeated the Wildcats 25-18, 25-14, and lost the 3rd game 7-15.  Their serving was aggressive and they scored several points on service aces.  Their passing was much more consistent than in previous matches; they even had a few possessions where they set up and ran an offense.  Madelyn Flores, Kensie Maldonado, and Daniela Alvarez all served well.  Estefanya Zermero and Julissa Moreno did well setting the ball and Julissa served for the first time in a game and got her first two serves in.
