The JV boys basketball team came out victorious in both of their games over the break. They played a game that ended with a four-point win over Liberty Hill which came out to 57-53. Then they faced Burnet and had a strong win with a final score of 71-17.

“We’re knocking down threes and giving it our all,” sophomore Ruben Luna said.

The boys also played a tournament and defeated Anderson with a final score of 62-52 and Lake Travis with a final score of 46-44. The team lost to Stony Point in their third game ending with a score of 44-55 on November 19-21.

“As a team I think we’ve played very hard and worked very hard to get those wins,” Sophomore Riley Reagan said.

Some lead players throughout the tournament and the games were senior B’John Allen scoring 51 points throughout and junior Blane Smith scoring 49 points throughout. 

As a team I think we’ve played very hard and worked very hard to get those wins.”

“Throughout the tournament nobody was playing selfish,” junior Blane Smith said. “We had great ball movement and many possessions where everyone touched the ball before we took a shot. Overall we are playing as a team which I believe to be the main contributor to our success. However, we need to focus on keeping it together when things start to get a little rough.”

The next time the boys will play is at their upcoming tournament on December 3-5 called the Maroon Classic at Austin High. Two days after on December 7, they have a home game against Belton at 6.

I am also part of the Advanced Theatre class and take part in the mainstage plays that our troupe does. I’m excited to teach people new things and to help everyone along the way!

Jack Densmore, Editor-in-Chief

Hello, my name is Jack Densmore. If I had the ability to be Liam Neeson for a day I would. Not only has he trained Obi-Wan Kenobi, but also Batman. Also I would have a special set of skills. If Hollywood made a movie of me, and if I couldn’t be cast as myself I would want Joseph Gordon Levitt to play me. I am currently writing an autobiography of my life and experiences. My favorite movie of all time is Tommy Boy, and my favorite book of all time is probably The Hobbit. My favorite sport is football which I played peewee football in elementary school, but I decided not to continue playing. A hobby I have is making YouTube videos. I make YouTube videos not only because it’s fun, but because I also get paid to basically play video games, edit the footage, and upload it which is awesome. I’m happiest when I’m with the people I care most about (my adviser, staff, friends, family). I wouldn’t be the same person without them, and I thank them all for making me who I am, and for helping me grow as a better person everyday.
