Northbrook has had a bit of a rough go to start the season but it was all smiles behind the masks on December 5. That day, the Raiders defeated Needville 44-40 for their first victory of the season. A nice win for the Northbrook boys hoopsters.

Spring Woods Unified Football Game!
For the second-straight year Spring Woods High School held a unified football game. This is an awesome day where life skills students get to experience the Friday Night Lights with playing a football game! Whether that be playing on the field, refereeing the game, being a cheerleader or in the band! This is an awesome event put on by Spring Woods High School.
Memorial Girls Basketball
Entering this week, Memorial girls basketball is on a hot streak, winners of seven-straight games. A win over Spring Woods last week opened district play for the Mustangs. Entering this week, Memorial stands at 9-3 on the year. They are definitely a team to watch in this 2020-2021 season.

Jyusef Larry enters year 11 leading Memorial, and the Mustangs should be a crew to contend with in 2021. Last year, a young Memorial team finished 22-11 overall but got knocked out in the first round.
The freshman duo of Riley McCloskey and Abigail Tomaski made first-team, all-district after averaging 13.3 points and 9.2 points per game, respectively. McCloskey also had 2.8 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game, while Tomaski averaged 6.4 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game.
The other first-team, all-district pick was Morgan Matheny, who averaged 8.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.4 steals per game last year. She also set a school record for most three-pointers in a single game going 9 of 17 one night from beyond the arch.
Be on the lookout for second-team, all-district selection Mackenzie McKown (7.5 ppg, 4.7rpg, 1.8 spg) and Alexandra Pappas. This team brings back a lot of talent, now it's time to see if they can piece it together for a playoff run.
