They played together for many summers as little girls, but for several local seniors, the conclusion of the summer league basketball season marks the “first of the lasts” of high school sports.

Peggy Hosek’s Rising Stars “pink reunion team” formed when the girls -- who donned shiny pink uniforms -- were in second, third, and fourth grades. Over the next eight years, the girls have grown to become some of the most decorated high school athletes in South Texas. They have earned multi-sport championships at all levels, as well as numerous individual All-State, All-Region, All-Area, and All-District recognitions.

Despite very busy schedules, the varsity Rising Stars were able to participate in two National Travel Basketball Association tournaments, and the Greater-Austin Mid-America Basketball League tournament in June. The team earned a record of 13-2, with a narrow loss to a 5A team from the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and a buzzer-beater loss to 4A Kerrville-Tivy, who won with a last-second “Hail-Mary” shot.

Each of the girls, as well as Hall of Fame Coach Peggy Hosek, is looking forward to the upcoming high school basketball season, and for the opportunity to play each others’ schools.
