SWEENEY FOOT and ANKLE TEAM of the MONTH: Lake Creek hoops comes full circle
Lake Creek entered the VYPE Top 20 Basketball rankings this week.
Yes, the new school in Montgomery ISD has some basketball bounce. The Lions are 5-1 in district play and will likely make the postseason for the second time in as many years.
Here's the back story.
Phil Eaton is the principal at Lake Creek. Eaton was once the Pasadena High basketball coach for years. In 1993, Pasadena had one of its greatest seasons winning the District 22-5A title. Eaton's star player was a guard named Shannon Spencer. Spencer is the head basketball coach, where? Yes, Lake Creek.
His top player? Son Pierce Spencer is the Lions' star, who recently signed to play at DI Nicholls State in Louisiana.
So, it comes full circle.
Spencer has averaged 21 points per game this season but is getting some help this year. Junior Hudson Boyd is pouring in 12 points a game, while Jordan Fitch, Ty George and Noah Cantu are solid contributors.
It will be a dog-fight with Huntsville, Tomball, Montgomery and Willis for playoff positioning and the district crown, but the Lions are in the conversation for both.
