UIL Boys Basketball Team Breakdowns
Boerne: The Greyhounds are motivated going into the 2020-2021 season because they won 28 games before falling one point short in the 2019-2020 UIL 4A Region IV final and have notable athletes in all-region players Luke Whidbee and Joaquin Gonzalez, all-district honorees Ben Phillip, Rashawn Galloway and Houston Hendrix and another contributor in Devin Styles to extend their current playoff streak to 12 years.
Fredericksburg: The Battlin' Billies had a 32-game win streak and a UIL 4A Region IV area round appearance during the 2019-2020 campaign and can march further in the 2020-2021 postseason with electric leaders like co-UIL 28-4A Defensive MVPs Colby Brasher and Jayden Sanchez and first-team all-district player Dillon Rabon.
Blanco: The Panthers recorded an impressive 2019-2020 run that included 29 wins and a UIL 3A Region IV quarterfinal appearance and have big expectations for the 2020-2021 campaign with playmakers like all-region athlete and UIL 25-3A MVP Tristan Schlinke, first-team all-district players Caleb Meyer, Baylor Smith, Zack Wisdom and Gavin Young and second-team all-district honoree Mitchell Hebert.
Comfort: The Bobcats ran to 27 wins and a UIL 3A Region IV quarterfinal appearance during the 2019-2020 campaign and plan to build off that success and their eight-year playoff streak with notable athletes like UIL 26-3A Newcomer of the Year Freddy Lozano, first-team all-district honoree Oscar Falcon, second-team all-district player Kyndal Tedder and other on-court threats in Jose Herrera and Tucker Weyel.
Pleasanton: The Eagles soared to 34 wins and the UIL 4A Region IV semifinal in the 2019-2020 season and are looking to extend their current postseason streak to five seasons during the 2020-2021 campaign with UIL 30-4A Newcomer of the Year RJ Marquez, all-district athlete Juan Lopez and fellow playmaker Reagan Moore.
Bandera: The Bulldogs made the most of their eight wins in the 2019-2020 season because they finished as a UIL 4A Region IV bi-district finalist and are excited for their 2020-2021 campaign because school and program alum Brady Keane returned to Bandera County to take over as their head coach and their roster includes first-team all-district athlete Trace Decker, second-team all-district players Liam DeMarchi and Tyler Moore, and other talents in Gunnar Winkler, Ryan Perez and Lukas Jackson.
Luling: The Eagles won 18 games and advanced to the UIL 3A Region IV bi-district round with playmakers like UIL 27-3A Defensive MVP Stanzant Jackson, second-team all-district athlete Dario Munoz and all-district honorable mention Mark Montalbo.
Waelder: The Wildcats earned 22 victories and marched to the UIL 1A Region IV semifinal last season and can produce another playoff run in the 2020-2021 campaign if they develop some depth around all-state athlete and UIL 30-1A MVP Isaiah Jones-Miller.
UIL Girls Basketball Team Breakdowns
Fredericksburg: The Battlin' Billies advanced to the UIL 4A state semifinal during the 2019-2020 season and are still expected to carry the torch for the San Antonio area throughout the 2020-2021 campaign because of a loaded roster that includes all-state talents Audrey Spurgin and Ella Hartmann, all-region athlete Brittley Bowers and all-district players Anabel Araiza, Brooke Batch, Avery Crouse and Anna Gold.
La Vernia: The Bears won 26 games and advanced to the UIL 4A Region IV bi-district round in the 2019-2020 season and have the necessary 2020-2021 season depth in all-state athletes Helana Chadwick and Trannon Izworski, first-team all-district players Tierney Izworski and Cassidy Towns, second-team all-district honorees Tara Felux and Madison Whatley and all-district honorable mentions Brie Alfaro, Breklyn Daniell and Bella Rodriguez to make more noise.
Luling: The Eagles earned 26 victories and flew to the UIL 3A Region IV Quarterfinal in the 2019-2020 campaign and are looking to surpass those marks in the 2020-2021 season with notable playmakers like all-state athlete and UIL 27-3A co-MVP Aja Holmes, UIL 27-3A Defensive MVP Caitlin Smith, first-team all-district player Vidi Munoz, second-team all-district honoree Lili Munoz and all-district honorable mention McKenna Martin.
Gonzales: The Lady Apaches won 22 games and advanced to the UIL 4A Region IV area round in the 2019-2020 campaign and can qualify for their second straight playoff appearance in the 2020-2021 season because of playmakers like Samantha Barnick, Hayley Sample and Madison Pirkle.
Wimberley: The Texans advanced to the UIL 4A Region IV bi-district playoff round during the 2019-2020 season and have important returners in all-district honorees Emily Thames, Brooke Burcham, Carson Crowder, Brina Jones, Rhyan Masur and McKenna Ward to make more noise during the 2020-2021 campaign.
Pleasanton: The Eagles are aiming for the 2020-2021 postseason because they missed the 2019-2020 playoff with 19 wins and can get over the top with players like Sadie McAda, Kayli Kennedy, Heaven Marquez and Kenley Miller.
Bandera: The Lady Bulldogs won 10 games in the 2019-2020 season and plan to lean on a hard-working group that includes Breanna Stimmell, Madison Leal and Elizabeth MacNeil to improve their district record and contend for a playoff berth in the 2020-2021 campaign.
