Forget the past. Forget the 2014-2015. This is a new year and FB Hightower Lady Hurricanes start the season ranked Area #7 (Lady Mustangs Area #5) and North Shore traveled to Hightower HS as visitors. After a 27-20 halftime score, the Lady Mustangs never looked back! Behind a 25 point 3rd quarter, C. Patterson lead with 21 points off 6 of 13 shooting. C. Johnson and newly UNC Tarheel commit, A. Okoene both added 14 points. Great start to season and we wish the Lady Mustangs GOOD LUCK as they travel to Baytown Lady Gander Tip-Off Classic on Thursday, Nov. 12th.
The Lady Mustang golf team competed in the Pearland Invitational at Southwyck Golf Club on Tuesday, November 10th. The girls, as a team, again broke the recent school team record, shooting a score of 408. That score earned them 4th place in the tournament. Senior, S. Buenrostro, shoot a NEW personal best of 99. Her teammate, A. Lewis (also a Senior) continued her two digit scoring streak with a 98. Way to go Lady Mustang Golfers and best of luck as your season continues!
It was a tough day for the young Lady Jackets with 14 teams from 12 schools fighting for the “Glory of Gold”. The Lady Jackets have managed to bring home medals in the last 3 tournaments, but it was not meant to be on this day. The Timber Creek Course was a challenging course where the ladies did their best, but the sand and water hazards seemed to attract their balls like magnets. Out of the 14 teams, Galena Park finished 6th ending their 3 tournament medal streak. The ladies were disappointed but know where they need to focus so they can win that medal in the next tournament. Briana Salinas once again amazed the coaches and the players with her long drives.
The Galena Park Yellowjackets took on the Wildcats of Humble Friday night at GPISD Stadium. The Yellowjackets were unable to get on the scoreboard in the first half as they took a 35-0 deficit into the locker room. The Jackets came out in the second half with some adjustments that put them on the board after a reception by Gutierrez from Gonzalez. Jose Peyrano nailed two long field goals pushing the Yellowjacket score into the double digits at 13. Sadly, the defense struggled putting a stop to the quick Wildcat offense and Galena Park lost to Humble 55-13. Offensive player of the week was Victor Carpio; receiver of the week was Bryan Gutierrez; and the back of the week was Xavier Rivera. Defensive lineman of the week was Ray Ybarra; defensive back of the week was Anthony Hernandez, and linebacker of the week was Raphael Corrigeux.
It was a tough way to end the 2015 season, but the coaches and players want to thank the GP faithful for all their current and continued support.
The NS Volleyball program handled business vs. the Lady Titans in smooth fashion. All Divisons, from Freshman to Varsity, defeated PA Memorial, not losing a single set! We congratulate the young ladies for a strong regular season and wish good luck to the Varsity ladies as they head on to the playoffs. North Shore will face Baytown Sterling Friday, October 30th! Go get 'em Lady Mustangs!

The North Shore XC season ended Monday, October 19th at SHSU. The extremely wet and muddy conditions slowed all times and saw our kids racing against mother nature and a strong competition. Stephen Barker represented well, as the only Boy Qualifier, finishing 89th in the field. Taryn Surratt, a state hopeful, had a tough time moving through the mud and finished 49th. Rounding out the Girls Team was B. Martinez, V. Macawili, V. Martinez, S. Benefield, and C. Barrera. Congrats on a GREAT season!
After an exciting playoff run on the varstiy divison, the freshman student athletes get to start their season of tournament play! Girls Doubles Team, P. Evans & J. Rodriguez, got things going in the win column as well as NS Singles: M. DelaTorre, D. Simon, and P. Zavala. But unfortunately, as a team, North Shore Tennis couldn't fight off the strong Yellowjackets and fell 4-13. It's a long season and we'll keep you up to date on all the matches, tournaments, and wins of our strong, young Mustang Tennis Team!!!
For the first time in an extremely long time, the Junior Varsity Division shot a combined -- 436!! That is actually one of lowest scores in recent Mustang Golf history. Leading his team was, AJ Suarez, who reached a new personal best at 97, finally breaking the 100 mark. Congratulations to the NS Golf team and we look forward to covering the rest of the season. Good Luck!!
The GPHS Yellowjackets took on the Panthers of C.E. King Friday night at GPISD Stadium. Galena Park found the end zone twice in the first half on two passes from Gonzalez to Handal. However, that would be all the offense could muster as the Yellowjackets went down 55-14 in the first half. The Yellowjackets played with grit and determination in the second half as they held King to a single touchdown in that half. C.E. King beat Galena Park 61-14. Offensive player of the week was Kasen Handal and running back of the week was Xavier Rivera. Defensive lineman of the week was Ray Ybarra, defensive back of the week was Anthony Hernandez, and linebacker of the week Raphael Corrigeux.
The varsity team lost to Crosby 15-25, 19-25 and 20-25. The Yellowjackets never seemed to get their offense rolling putting them on the defensive all night. Passing difficulties and hitting errors plagued the team the entire match. Despite the self-imposed obstacles, the team had a few bright spots; Katera Johnson played a fantastic game allowing season long setter MacKenzie Swanson an opportunity to hit. MacKenzie capitalized on that opportunity by putting down 7 kills against Crosby’s defense. The other bright spot was the back court play of middle hitter, Christina Herrera. Christina has only played her defense while she was serving, but last night Tina played all 6 rotations and had a phenomenal night. Coach Kellner was excited about her development and is looking forward to having her play all the way around next season.
On Monday Oct. 19th, the North Shore Mustangs traveled to Northwest Park in La Porte, TX to face off against other teams in the District 21-6A Championship Race. Taryn Surratt continued her comeback season with a NEW personal record (19:31.90 - 5000m) and the gold medal! But as a team, the Girls Varsity neede to run hard to FINALLY knock off La Porte as Team Champions and came up just a single point short!! Stephen Barker finished 7th overall on Boys Varsity and will make the trip, along with the Girl's team, to the Region 3 XC meet, next Monday, 10/26 @ SHSU. Good Luck to all the runners!
PA Memorial has a young group of up and coming tennis players but they couldn't match the winning desire showed by NS tennis. The Mustangs clinched a 21-6A playoff berth following their 18-1 win against the Titans. Information concerning date, time and location will be available soon. Congratulations and Good Luck in the playoffs!!!
