After a tough season in the 2019-2020 season, the Lady Texans used last season to rebuild, regroup, and get on the right track. The team was able to play strong throughout their entire schedule and head into the offseason with something to be proud of. This season, Northwest High School's girls basketball program looks to continue to build upward. VYPE DFW takes a look into the season so far and what's yet to come:
Last season, the Lady Texans were able to fight for a playoff appearance as the team went 16-12 overall. The Lady Texans finished fourth in their district with a 8-7 district record while posting big wins over the likes of Mineral Wells, Birdville, Denton, Richland, and more en route to the playoffs. The team made a first-round appearance, but fell to Wichita Falls Rider.
There's no doubt that a stronger season after a less-than-desirable season is something that would power a team to continue building back strong. The Lady Texans have done just that entering the 2021-2022 season. So far, the Lady Texans have posted a 12-5 overall record (2-1 in district play) with incredible wins over Frisco Wakeland, Aledo, Prosper Rock Hill, Euless Trinity, Grapevine, and more!
Although Northwest lost to Lake Dallas just before the holidays, fans can expect the Lady Texans to use this time to recharge and be ready for the rest of the season ahead. The Lady Texans will face-off against Richland as their first game back from the Holiday break where they expect to set the tone for the rest of the season ahead. If you're a fan of the Lady Texans, you can count on another strong push towards playoffs!

After winning district in the 2018-2019 season and going four rounds deep into the playoffs before eventually falling 76-65 to Mansfield Timberview, the Northwest Texans boys basketball program has been in a time of regrouping and rebuilding. This season, the team is looking forward to flexing their strengths and showing their ability on the court as they work their way through their opponents. VYPE DFW takes a look at the team and what fans can expect from the Texans the rest of this season:
The Texans finished in the seventh-place spot in their district last season just ahead of Lake Dallas. With a 6-15 overall record, it's safe to say that Northwest's season didn't go exactly how they wanted it to. The team played strong throughout their season, but weren't able to get the right footing against some of their opponents. During the season, the Texans were still able to post big wins over Fort Worth Eastern Hills, Keller Fossil Ridge, Lake Dallas, Denton, and Grapevine.
With a 61-52 victory over Grapevine to close out last season and an off-season that allowed the team to begin focusing on a new year ahead, the Texans were able to find fresh footing into the new season as they opened up the 2021-2022 schedule with two strong wins over International Leadership of Texas Arlington and Granbury's North Central Texas Academy. The Texans have also posted strong wins during the preseason over the likes of Hurst L.D. Bell (52-43), Fort Worth Trimble Tech (56-45), Irving MacArthur (55-38), and more.
Although the Texans lost to Lake Dallas before the holiday, the team looks to post a strong win against Prosper Rockhill on Monday, December 27th where the two teams tip-off at noon. The Texans have a tough district schedule ahead where they will take on Grapevine, Birdville, Colleyville Heritage, Richland, Lake Dallas, Denton Ryan, and more. Fans can expect the team to play strong as they work their way to the playoffs. It would be surprising to see the Texans go another season without a clenching a playoff appearance- especially after the team has already proven to be recharged and ready to go!
