Lions fall in three or four games at Navarro Classic



Lockhart Basketball played in the Navarro Classic last weekend, finishing 1-3 — losing to San Antonio Kennedy 61-50, losing to Navarro 52-42, losing to San Antonio Lanier, and picking up a win against Hallettsville 57-38.

The Lions were back in action at home on Tuesday against Floresville.

“Tournaments are good for our guys to get a chance to get out there and compete,” Lockhart Head Coach Colin Hart said. “They are gaining so much experience and helping build confidence in some of our younger guys. They don’t get a chance to feel bad for themselves because they have to turn around and get prepared for the next opportunity. We are trying to get healthy before the start of district which starts next week (Dec. 19) against Cedar Park.”

Here are the Lions’ leaders from each game of the tournament:
