Judson beat Wagner at 10:00 a.m., the Rangers beat Judson at 2:00 p.m., 79-70, and South San beat Wagner later that afternoon to ensure a South San-Smithson Valley play-in game for the 4th seed. The Bobcats won, 56-51, ending the Rangers’ bid to earn consecutive playoff appearances for the first time since the 1990s.

In their district opener, Softball beat the Wagner Thunderbirds 13-1 . They were led by a home run by Cassie Blevins and a No-Hitter by Seneca Anthony. They will look to keep the momentum going as they head to Dripping Springs for a three day tournament at the end of the week.


Lacrosse will kick off its season on Saturday at Jumbo Evans against Regents School of Austin. Covid shut down the 2020 season early, but in 2019 the team earned a berth in the state title game.
