The San Saba JV boys basketball team finished off their season this past week, winning both of their games. Last Tuesday evening, the Dillos won an exciting overtime game against a good DeLeon team. Final score for that game was 54-52. Scoring for the Dillos: John Faught (5), Holt Oliver (18), John Welch (10), Logan Guidroz (8), Stone Sealy (5), and Josh Cazares with (8).
On Friday evening, the young Dillos finished their season with a season high 61 points. They defeated Hico by the score of 61-34. Scoring in that game: Faught (16), Oliver (11), Welch (2), Guidroz (10), Ridge Smith (2), J. Cazares (15), Stone Sealy (5).
Since this was our final game, I just want to say “thank you” to the JV players for a really fun, enjoyable, and interesting year. This group of young men were a pleasure to coach. Their dedication, work ethic, and the fact that they really enjoyed being around each other makes them a special group. In my weekly score update, I rarely mention much more than who scored, but this team was so much more than that. They were truly an un-selfish bunch, and all of them contributed to the success of this team. We finished the year at 7-2 in district play, beating every team at least once, and our 2 losses were close to the final buzzer. This group included seven freshmen and two sophomores. I look forward to these young men advancing through our basketball system, and continue to build on what Coach Welch and the varsity players have accomplished this season. Again, a very special thanks to this years JV boys basketball team: John Faught, John Welch, John Watson, Stone Sealy, Logan Guidroz, Yason Aguirre, Holt Oliver, Ridge Smith, Josh Cazares., and manager Ricardo Garcia.
