The Port Isabel Tarpon and Lady Tarpon basketball teams made the trip to Progreso Tuesday night and split their games. The Tarpons won, 56-36, and the Lady Tarpons lost, 40-34.
The Tarpons remain on a roll in district play with their sixth consecutive win. They also got the sweep of the Red Ants after P.I. won the first game between these two long-time district rivals, 65-52, at home back on Jan. 5.
The Lady Tarpons needed to win their last four games to clinch a playoff spot. They took the first one at home last Friday when they outpointed the Grulla Lady Gators, 50-46. With the loss at Progreso, then, Port Isabel is eliminated from any playoff consideration. P.I. comes into this Friday’s home game with Hidalgo with a 6-6 record in District 32-4A play.
