Boys basketball fell to Cibolo Steele in a Tuesday heartbreaker, 57-56, despite a 15-point outburst from Kaleb White. The team is still in the thick of the playoff hunt, however, only needing one more win to guarantee a berth. A home match with San Marcos and a road contest with New Braunfels are the squad’s final chances to prove their mettle before a potential playoff matchup with a district 25-6A school such as Austin Westlake (30-1, 14-0) or Austin Anderson (23-9, 10-4). 

Girls basketball knocked off Steele on Tuesday, 52-45, overcoming a five-point fourth-quarter deficit to steal a win on senior night. The win leaves the two teams tied at 2nd place in district 26-6A, setting the stage for a neutral-site showdown at Seguin High School at 6 p.m. on Friday. The winner will take sole possession of the #2 seed, and a much more favorable path to the state crown.

Last night, in their away game against the San Marcos Rattlers, the boys soccer team tied their third match in six district games. The Ranger’s lone goal was assisted by Brett Dildy and finished by Ryan Harley. They will face New Braunfels (6-5-2, 3-2-1) at the Ranger Stadium this Friday night. 

The Rangers decimated San Marcos 5-0 last night, and freshman Jacy White played her first varsity minutes in the second half as a goalkeeper. Next on the docket is a road game against New Braunfels (9-3-2, 4-3-2) on Friday.

Aquatics will compete in the state championship Thursday and Friday, and will look for strong showings from the men’s 200 medley and freestyle relays, which gained most of the team’s points, and Laney Skrobanek, who set a district record in the 100 back.

Wrestling had a strong district showing, with over 15 wrestlers medaling. On the boys’ side, Ryan Benca, Kobe Mora and Zarek Holley placed 2nd, and JD Forton placed 4th. Girls won their district meet, led by first-place finishes by Bella Ruiz, Molly Moczygemba and Sage Benca. Reed Evans and Aurora Anderson placed second, and Liz Flores won third.
