The varsity team started off slow in the first quarter as they struggled to find a rhythm and the basket against a tight Splendora zone. As the time ran down in the first the Yellowjackets found their groove both on defense and offense pulling within 5 points at the end of the first quarter. The low scoring continued through the second as Splendora took a 17-23 lead into the intermission. The third quarter was more of the same for G.P. as they battled through a scoring drought that lasted nearly 3 minutes of the third quarter while Splendora drained two timely 3 point shots and sank all 6 of their free-throw attempts. Splendora finished the third quarter with a 24-39 point lead. The Yellowjackets held Splendora 5 points in the final quarter but just couldn’t find the basket as they fell 32-46. Jalen Davis led the Yellowjackets with 11 points.
The Galena Park High School Athletic Program would like to give recognition to the Lady Jacket volleyball program who finished 22-16 overall, 10-6 in district play, were Bi-District Champions and who earned a bid into the Area Finalist match. In addition, congratulations also goes to the following Lady Jackets who earned 23-5A All-District Honors for the 2016 Season.
The Galena Park boys’ soccer program is looking forward to an exciting 2016-2017 season in a new district. The team has five returning varsity players who are expected to lead the way: senior, Moises Quiroz; senior, Javier Gomez; senior, Jose Davila; junior, Jonathan Trevino; and sophomore, Carlos Quinones. Carlos also is a returning All-District player. The Yellowjackets will have a totally new identity this season as these young men are coming together as family working toward a common goal: return to playoffs! Coach Monk is very optimistic about achieving this goal as there is a great deal of strong senior leadership and several key young players who can contribute. Jose Davila is a four year varsity letterman and his athletic ability at forward this season is going to be something to watch. Davila is expected to be the main attacker and score several goals for the Yellowjackets. Rounding off the returners will be seniors, Jose Cardenas, Juan Chavarria, and Merari Gonzalez; juniors, Guillibaldo Villarreal and Miguel Ochoa; sophomores, Brandon Luevano, Jorge Abarca, Cain Gutierrez, Elian Gomora, and Julio Almanza.
The Gold team lost a tough game to the Yellowjackets by a score of 25-38. The Hornets struggled throughout the game as they were unable to really get anything going with any consistency. Ricky Garcia and Raul Nunez made several steals in an effort to decrease the Yellowjacket lead and Oscar Galvan worked hard on offense. Ricardo Garcia-Almazan was recognized for his outstanding performance on the floor.
Last Thursday, the NS XC program traveled to Atascocita HS to race against the newly aligned District 21 for the 2016 school year. From start to finish the running Mustangs stuck with strong runners throughout the race in hopes of capturing a regional berth by finishing top 3 as a team. The Varsity Boys did just that by taking 3rd place, lead by Senior S. Barker and Sophomore B. Martinez. The Varsity Girls solidified runner up as All-District runners, V. Macawili and J. Herrera paced their team right behind #4 state ranked Kingwood HS. We're so proud of the entire team for their hard work all season and good luck to the varsity squads on Saturday, Oct. 29th at UIL Region III Championships!
With the regular season coming to a close, the Lady Mustangs were challenged heavily on their home court. Freshman girls team fall early but JV comes back to take a win against the Lady Patriots. As the Varsity squad took the court, things became a little more difficult. A. Hernandez had 10 digs to lead the team and K. Armstrong and T. Crouch handled 7 kills a piece in a losing effort. They ended the night being swept by Goose Creek Memorial Lady Patriots. With a little more than 2 weeks to go, the Lady Mustangs look to rebound vs. Atascocita Lady Eagles this Friday, @ AHS at 4:30.
