FLORESVILLE -- It came a bit earlier this year, but Floresville High School once again hosted its annual Jaguar Classic, and teams from across the state rolled into town for the competition.

After a day of pool play on Thursday, Nov. 21, the 24 teams in attendance began bracket play on Friday in either the gold, silver, or bronze categories. Teams played for the next two days, eventually landing on first-, second-, and third-place squads in each bracket, as well as a consolation winner for each.

In the gold bracket, Brandeis High School won out to secure the tournament’s top prize. Brandeis began with a 48-39 win over Tuloso-Midway, then picked up a 65-51 win over Brackenridge. That put the team into the finals with Incarnate Word High School, which started gold-bracket play with a win over Floresville, and then another over Southwest. Incarnate Word couldn’t hang with Brandeis, though, and the Lady Broncs wrapped up the title with a 67-37 win over the Shamrocks.

Incarnate Word finished second, of course, while Brackenridge went on to grab third-place honors with a 47-46 win over Southwest. After falling to Brack in the first round, MacArthur topped Tuloso-Midway 45-43, and then Floresville 43-38 to win consolation.

In the silver bracket, Boerne Champion grabbed first-place honors. Champion began with a 69-33 win over Burbank, and then a 52-47 victory over Austin Crockett. That put the team into a championship battle with Buda Hays. Hays topped Laredo Alexander 49-41 in the first round, and then beat San Marcos 60-45 in the second round.

East Central competed in the silver bracket, and went on to win consolation. The Hornets fell to San Marcos 37-32 to start things off, but then secured a 1-point win over Alexander, 48-47. The Hornets went on to top Harlandale 40-29 in the consolation championship game.

In the bronze bracket, Highlands won it all with a 55-53 victory over Seguin. Highlands started with a 64-57 win over Medina Valley, and then a 67-38 victory over Holmes. Seguin took out Floresville’s junior varsity squad 61-20 to start, and then topped Lanier 49-39 to advance to the championship game. Holmes finished third in the bracket with a 24-23 win over Lanier.

Medina Valley won out in the consolation bracket. The Lady Panthers began with the loss to Highlands, but then defeated Sam Houston 64-46, and topped Holy Cross 66-44 for the trophy.

With the Jaguar Classic now behind them, the Floresville basketball team will enjoy a Thanksgiving break before returning to tournament play Thursday though Saturday, Dec. 5-7, at the Northeast ISD tournament. The Jags will begin district play on Friday, Dec. 13, as the team welcomes Kennedy to Floresville.
