Girls Middle School Basketball, Girls Varsity Basketball · MS Lady Mavs Get Fierce


The Middle school Lady Mavericks began their season with a surprising fight for the visiting team. As the night began, the home team’s nervousness steadily began to clear and give way to excitement as our ladies played an awesome opening game against White Oak.

Preparation and skill building through weeks of hard work exhibited themselves through their play. Many of our players were filled with nerves as this was the first time they experience organize basketball in this environment and were anxious for their first win. Although they were undersized, these ladies quickly threw away their tentative steps to work out their gameplay and started playing competitively against our bigger opponent.

We tried to come together as a team and remember our selves however, we underestimated the intensity needed to continually keep our heads in the game and that gave our opponents the opportunity to disrupt our play. We have a few returning players from last year demonstrating excellent leadership. With our lack of experience, we were close to finishing out game 1 of the season with a win which shows that we have the potential to be great. The team will work on mentally focusing themselves on execution, staying in their positions, and make the plays and skills learned work within game.

We missed White Oak by an inch but we are excited to capture Fifth Ward. Please come and support the middle school Lady Mavs on Wednesday, November 18, 2016 at 5:00.

Game Recap

We came our with a lot of energy. The guys dedicated the game in honor of Conner Olympia. Played sound defense and attacked the basket with a loud crowd behind them in Maverick Nation.
The second half we were a little fatigue which made us come out flat. Got tired and turned the ball over during periods where we were not even being pressed.

Proud of the way they fought. We have more work to do. It was only the first game of the season. YP Fifth Ward is next!

Game Recap

The season opener for the Lady Mavericks was a hard fight to the finish. The Lady Mavs showed that they have heart and plan to push this season to top.
Even though the game was tough the Lady Mavs did not give up. The mavericks made Kipp Sunnyside earn every point gained in last Friday’s game. Final score 8-38. I hope to see all the Maverick fans out this Friday as we take on Yes Prep Fifth Ward.

Boys Middle School Basketball, Boys Varsity Basketball · MS Basketball Community Service


Community Event Highlights

 

Yes Prep Southwest Middle School basketball team visited Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston, Texas for their community event. It was an early Veteran’s Day celebration for many veterans that fought in World War II, Vietnam, Dessert Storm, and Iraq War. The team arrive at the United States Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston and was greeted by retired Coast Guard Officer Jaynie Pena. Ms. Pena is known for her many charitable contributions throughout the military community. She gave the team breakfast and supplied the material for the gift bags. The team assemble gift bags and enclosed inspirational messages for veterans.

Once they arrived at the VA Medical Center, the team walk tirelessly through each every room delivering over 60 bags and inspirational cards to each veteran. One by one, each member of the team told a veteran why they honor them. The players learned the importance of being a team with courage and integrity. Many of these brave men rarely get visitors, but to see young men take time out to see them meant the world. Some cried with joy and pride. The community event will not only be a lasting memory for the veterans, but a lasting meaning of a band of basketball brothers that are on a quest to a better version of themselves.

Multiple Teams · MAVERICKS PROVE IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING AT STATE


They came, they saw, they conquered!

The Maverick and Lady Mavs XC squad eft everything they had on the very hilly course in Hutto, TX for the state championship meet Oct. 10, putting the cherry on top of an outstanding, program-defining season.

The typical Varsity and JV teams were split up due to grade level race splits, and up first were the Varsity – 11th/12th grade boys, Captain Marvin Prudencio, Carlos Martinez, Ever Rodriguez, and Gabriel Chavez.  The hills and the 5k distance proved to be a challenge, but the boys never let up, with Gabriel crossing the finish line first for the Mavs.  Gabe definitely had a break-out season, consistently running PR after PR for both 5k and 2 mile distances.  He was followed closely by Marvin who also had a stellar senior season, smashing his junior year PRs by minutes!  To round out the small squad were juniors Carlos M. and Ever R. who will be returning next year for their golden senior year season.

Next were the wildly successful Varsity 11th/12th grade girls of Senior Captains, Cindy Perez, Alantis Jackson, and Jessica Gonzales, Josnarie Gonzales (injured but there for support), and juniors Valeria Malagon and Barbara Chaves.  With only 2 miles to cover for the race, the senior girls were determined to make their final race memorable.  None other than Cindy Perez crossed the line first for the Lady Mavs in 15th PLACE….IN THE STATE!  Behind her where senior teammates Alantis and Jess, powering through the uphill finish and passing runners left and right for a stellar 2 mile race.  The junior ladies Valeria and Barbara were close behind the trio with strong finishes as well to round out the Varsity ladies.

Following the girls, was the surprise of the day; the JV Boys squad crashed the state championships with a 3rd place finish! The team, consisting of Freshman Diego Lopez and Diego Rodriguez, and Sophomores Evel Garcia, Henry Martinez and Francisco Abundiz, ran a mix of JV and Varsity level for the season, which set them up for a strong team finish to claim the trophy honors.  First across the line was Francisco in 16th, who had a breakout year as a runner, followed by Henry (22nd), Diego Lopez (25nd), Evel (26th) and Diego R (37th).  Knowing that this is a young squad makes the future of our boys XC program look very bright and promising!  Massive shout out tp the JV boys for pushing themselves through the challenging 5k course for a 3rd place STATE finish!

The lone ranger and sophomore Amy Mejia ran solo for the JV girls race and did not disappoint.  She finished the 2 mile course in 21st place with an ALMOST season best time on the hilly course.  It can be tough to run a race all by yourself without a teammate to push you to your best, but Amy was focused and ready for the challenge.  Her Varsity counterparts also did some amazing cheering for her along the uphill homestretch, making a great season end for Ms. Mejia.

After the HS Awards ceremony and break, the MS teams here up.  Unfortunately the races were held at very hot and humid times of the day, but the younger Mavs and Lady Mavs charged forward with some promising finishes.  The MS Boys team, although small, have huge potential for the future.  7th grader Maxy Rojas and 8th graders Angel Barerra, Jose Jasso, and Milton Vidal never give up no matter what obstacles are in front of them (weather, hills, wind, mud).  Same goes for the Lady Mavs runners. Seventh graders Daniela Diaz, Rocio Flores, Azenet Tejada, Tania Cabrera, Mandy Payan, and Leslie Mendez and 8th graders Andrea Hernandez, Kim Hernandez, Nancy Mendoza, and Nyja Quash, give an equally hard effort in a race distance they are not used to running.  The younger ladies are a very strong team, stacked with talent, and like the boys, have a bright future ahead of them.  The middle school runners are living proof that hard work and a dedicated season can lead to growth success both individually and as a team.

Although this is only my second year as a coach, this has been a defining year for Southwest’s Cross Country program.  There were a small number of individual successes last year, but no team honors, and in some cases, not enough runners to make a 5-runner team.  But this year was different.  From June 2015 to Oct. 10th, the runners consistently came to practice, consistently gave me 150%, took care of business inside of the classroom, played along with my wild idea of 5:30am practice, and the end result was: 13 individual medal honors and 3 distinguished team awards throughout the season.

I cannot beam with more pride than I (still) am now at how outstanding this group of athletes did this season.  I hope that the graduating seniors have enjoyed their time in the XC program, and I hope that the returning athletes take this season as an eye-opening example that their potential is limitless.  Great season Mavs & Lady Mavs, thank you everyone for the season-long support, and we’ll see ya in 2016!

–Coach Mach

Multiple Teams · Southwest’s Annual Dig Pink Game


Last game of the season ended bitter sweet for the Lady Mavs. Not being able to pull out a win in either of the three matches. However, that was not the purpose of the match. The Annual Dig Pink game was to raise awareness regarding breast cancer. The Lady Mavs Mavs were in competing in in their custom pink jerseys and the gym was flooded with numerous pink decorations courtesy of the cheer squad.

Coach Coleman on the Season:

They Lady Mavericks have grown more than ever. Having such a young team, the girls showed maturity and a passion for the sport. From keeping their grades up, to being at practice eager to learn more. The Lady Mavericks had grown to be a wonderful team. We will continue to grow throughout the summer. The Lady Mavericks will come back next season stronger than ever!!!

 

Go Lady Mavericks !

Keep Up The Hard Work Ladies !
