Seven Lakes finished last year 21-14 overall and fell in the Area Round of the playoffs.
Now, the Spartans will try and make a run in the senior year of the best women’s basketball player in Texas. Justice Carlton is the highest ranked girls basketball prospect by ESPNW in Texas.
However, the University of Texas-commit won’t return until December after a knee injury. She averaged 22.3 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists and two blocks per game as the District 19-6A Offensive Player of the Year in 2023.
Madi Carlton, who earned District 19-6A Newcomer of the Year, averaged 13.6 points and 11.4 rebounds per game. This Carlton duo will be ones to watch in the entire city.
Another name to take note of is Shreya Jategaonkar, who averaged 8.5 points and 2.9 assists per game a year ago. Fulshear move-in Kimora Lopez is verbally committed to Morgan State University and will be another key contributor this season.
The motto for Seven Lakes is simple this year – “One Team, One Goal.” That goal resides in San Antonio as Doug Watson enters his first year of leading the program.
Fulshear played in one of the last games of the season in 2023. The Chargers ended up falling just short and finished as the Class 5A State Semifinalist with a record of 33-6.
It will be a new era for Fulshear in the 2023-2024 season as their former head coach took a new job at Atascocita. So, enter Justin Jones to take over the program as he moves over from Klein Collins where he was an assistant.
Jones will have some firepower back as Ruke Ogbevire (Jr. G) returns as the team’s leading scorer after averaging 13 points per game a year ago. A trio of juniors will be ones to watch in Sophia Semmler (5.8 ppg, 5.1 rpg), Campbell Hill (5.8 ppg, 2 rpg) and Kinzy Searcy (5.5 ppg, 1.1 rpg).
Watch for the Chargers again to make another run at the Dome.
Clear Brook went 26-9 a year ago, with an undefeated (12-0) district championship prior to reaching the Regional Quarterfinals of the playoffs.
The Wolverines were a young squad in 2023 as a trio of then-sophomores led the charge.
Kamryn McLaurin (Jr. G) led the charge with 12.8 points per game, followed by Rezia Castillo’s (Jr. PG) 11.8 points per night.
Chardel Terrell (Jr. G) also averaged in the double digits with 11.3 points per game. That will be the group that the Clear Brook machine will be led by this season.
