FLORESVILLE -- It’s been held for 36 years now, and the Jaguar Classic varsity girls basketball tournament at Floresville High School seems to get bigger and better every year.

This year’s tournament, held Dec. 1-3, played host to 24 teams from across the area and state. Several local teams participated in the event, including Floresville, East Central, and Poth. The team from Victoria East made an impressive run through the brackets to win the tournament championship, followed by Laredo Alexander, Incarnate Word, Brenham, and Clark. Medina Valley lost its first game of the tournament to East Central, and then won out from there to take home the consolation championship.

The Victoria East Lady Titans began their tournament championship with a 95-25 win over Lee. The team topped Laredo LBJ by the score of 85-50 in the second round, and then knocked off Brackenridge in its closest game of the tournament, 64-62. The Lady Titans beat Incarnate Word 48-33 to reach the finals, and then defeated Laredo Alexander 56-43 for the first-place trophy.

For the home-standing Jaguars, things started off well with a lopsided 81-16 win over Poteet Thursday afternoon, but then took a turn for the worse when they fell to Brenham by the score of 78-76 later that evening. The loss dropped Floresville into the “second-round losers” bracket, but the Jags won out from there.

On Friday afternoon, Floresville took the court against East Central. With a 90-59 win, Floresville moved on to play Brandeis, and picked up a 20-point win over the Lady Broncs, 75-55.

East Central had a solid 77-63 win over Medina Valley Thursday night to begin their tournament play, but then suffered a 55-47 loss at the hands of Laredo Alexander, the tournament’s eventual second-place team. That put the Lady Hornets into a rematch from earlier this year with Floresville, but the Jaguars proved too much, and sent East Central home a bit early.

While most of the teams competing in the tournament were from Class 4A and 5A schools, a few smaller schools got involved, including Poth.

The Pirettes kicked off the Jaguar Classic with their 9 a.m. game against Somerset inside the main gym. Poth came out strong during the contest, and powered its way to an impressive 64-19 win. That put the Pirettes into the second round, where they took on Clark, a first-round winner over Holy Cross.

Poth had a bit of trouble with the Lady Cougars, and Clark eventually won the game, 54-32. The loss bumped the Pirettes into the “second-round losers” bracket, where the team eventually met up with Brandeis. Poth went toe to toe with its second Class 5A opponent of the tournament, and just missed advancing, as the Pirettes fell by a single point, 57-56.

As a whole, the tournament produced a number of great games and exciting finishes. A total of nine games were decided by less than 5 points, and several were decided by just 1 or 2 points.
