After a pair of wins over Kennedy High School and Corpus Christi Moody, the Floresville Jaguar basketball team has won the area championship, and is set to compete in a regional quarterfinal matchup.

The first stop on the way to regionals went through Alamo Heights, as the Jaguar Hoop Troop squared off with the Lady Rockets of Kennedy High School Feb. 15.

Floresville began the game with an 8-0 run, as the Hoop Troop got points from Shelby Leinneweber, Annielyn Felux, and Erica Hernandez. Destiny Amaro and Katie Moore also got involved in the first-period scoring, and the Jaguars held a 19-11 advantage at the buzzer.

Kennedy scored first to start the second period, but Moore responded immediately for Floresville. A pair of 3-pointers by the Lady Rockets narrowed the gap, and Kennedy eventually pulled to within 2 points at 23-21, but that would be the closest they would ever get. The Jags led 38-28 at halftime, enjoyed a 63-50 lead after the third period, and put a bi-district win in the books by the final score of 76-63.

The Jaguars then turned their sights to the area championship, and the team from Corpus Christi Moody last Friday, Feb. 18.

The Lady Trojans scored first in the contest, but Floresville quickly tied the game with a basket from Hernandez, and then took the lead with a score from Leinneweber -- a lead they would never surrender.

In addition to Hernandez and Leinneweber, the Jaguars received first-period scoring contributions from Amaro, Amanda Montoya, and Moore. When the first period came to an end, the Jags enjoyed a 10-point advantage at 18-8.

Moody scored the first two baskets of the second period to pull within striking distance, but it didn’t take long for Floresville to turn up the heat. The Jaguars quickly regained their 10-point lead, and went into halftime leading the Lady Trojans by 12.

While Floresville started the second half well, Moody got rolling and pulled to within 5 points by the end of the third period. The Lady Trojans pulled to within 3 points at 50-47, but Leinneweber scored the Jaguars’ next 8 points, as Floresville began to pull away once again. When the final buzzer sounded, it was the Jaguars who celebrated an area championship by the score of 64-53.

The Jags were scheduled to face Victoria East in the regional quarterfinals Feb. 22. The two teams split their earlier meetings this season in District 30-4A competition, with Floresville winning the first by 13 points, and Victoria East winning the second meeting by 11. The game was scheduled to be played at Corpus Christi Ray High School at 7 p.m.
