The Port Isabel High boys and girls hoops squads got another sweep in district competition last Friday, as both teams won against Progreso. The Lady Tarpons, playing on the road, held off a spirited effort by the Lady Red Ants, 39-33. On their home court the Tarpons had an easier time of it with the Red Ants, 75-37.
At Progreso Coach Alan Ward’s team fell behind early. “They led 6-3 half-way through the first quarter, then 10-9,” Ward said the next day. “We pushed it up to seven with half a minute to go. We won the game with that first quarter run. After that they didn’t score much.”
