SAN ANTONIO -- After another strong playoff run, the basketball season has come to an end for the Floresville Jaguar Hoop Troop. The team earned a good win over Corpus Christi Moody in the regional quarterfinals, but fell to Cedar Park Vista Ridge in the semifinals.

The Jags took on Moody Feb. 21 in quarterfinal play. Moody scored the first points of the game, but Floresville came thundering back with first-quarter points from Shelby Leinneweber, Amanda Montoya, Brittany Aikens, DeHavalan Watts, Erica Hernandez, Destiny Amaro, Liesel Raabe, and Ashley Hoelscher. When the first eight minutes had expired, Floresville was in clear control at 27-14.

In the second quarter, the scoring and momentum went back and forth, as each team found ways to score. Amaro drilled three baskets from beyond the 3-point arc, and Floresville maintained its 17-point lead at the break, 58-41.

Moody started the second half as it had the first, dropping in 2 points. Leinneweber then responded with a basket for Floresville, just as she had done to start the game. Moody got a little run shortly thereafter and closed the gap to 11, but a pair of free throws and a basket by Hernandez snapped the run. Amaro and Raabe tacked on a few 3-pointers, and the lead was 79-60 at the end of the third.

Amaro and Hernandez each drilled two additional 3’s in the fourth quarter, and Aikens tacked on several to help lift the Jags to a 106-85 win.

With the quarterfinal win in their pocket, the Hoop Troop traveled to San Antonio Feb. 24 to face Vista Ridge in the semifinals. Vista Ridge opened the game with the first 2 points, but Hernandez gave the lead to Floresville with an early 3-pointer.

Vista Ridge came back with a 3-pointer of its own and a basket to make it a 7-3 game. Hernandez made it 7-5, but then Vista Ridge stretched it into 13-5. Leinneweber broke the run with a shot from the charity stripe, and Aikens drilled a 3-pointer and a follow-up basket to end the first quarter with the score 15-11 in favor of Vista Ridge. Hernandez, Leinneweber, and Amaro scored for Floresville in the second quarter, but when the half came to an end, it was Vista Ridge with a 25-18 advantage.

The Jags came out strong to start the second half and got on a good run to pull within a point at 27-26, but couldn’t close the gap. The teams traded points throughout a high-scoring quarter, but when the clock reached zero, it was Vista Ridge that clung to a narrow 41-39 lead.

Watts scored the first basket of the fourth quarter to tie the game. Vista Ridge hit a free throw to retake the lead, but baskets by Hernandez and Watts put the Jags up by 4, their first lead since the beginning of the first quarter.

With the score 51-48 in favor of Floresville, Vista Ridge scored a pair of baskets and a free throw to move back on top. Vista Ridge caught a little fire in the closing minutes of the game, and pulled away from Floresville en route to the win, 62-53.

Floresville ends its season with an overall record of 29-6. The team finished second in District 30-4A, and picked up bi-district and area wins, in addition to a regional quarterfinal victory. The team will take a big hit to graduation this spring, but will return a number of talented athletes next season.
