The Lockhart Lions 7th grade “maroon” basketball team came out on the other end of a 49-4 ball game Thursday night, Nov. 17, against San Marcos Miller.
“I was proud on how they handled themselves despite the loss,” said Coach Harold Abayan. “Miller came out with a half-court press and our ball handling and passing was not good enough to set up our offense.
“Defensively, we had too many miscues and that led to easy fast break opportunities. The score however, is not indicative on how hard our team played. They hustled from beginning to end and played better in the second half,” he added.
