One of the hottest high school baseball teams in Texas is San Antonio Christian School. The Lions recorded a 16-13 record and a TAPPS Division II regional final finish during the 2019 season, but their 15-0 start to the 2020 season has caught everybody by surprise. One of the players that has brought the program to new heights in the early weeks of the current campaign is 2020 TCU commit Dylan Bright.
"As a senior captain for SACS, my role is to help teach the underclassmen and to lead by example to everyone else on how to have fun, but also work hard," said Bright.
It didn't matter if Duncanville faced Cypress Creek star Rori Harmon in Saturday's UIL 6A girls basketball state championship game. The Pantherettes were on a mission to top their 26th UIL state final four appearance with their 11th state title in the sport.
Harmon, who missed Friday's state semifinal against McKinney because she broke a team rule, was also not available for Saturday's title game. Duncanville's motivated coaching staff and players definitely took advantage and rolled to a 63-47 victory at San Antonio's Alamodome.
"That one was for my mother," said Duncanville coach LaJeanna Howard. "I started this journey. I came down here last year and I started it for her when she passed away and I finished it this year in my first year where she sacrificed and made sure that I had a great education at Duncanville. To be able to finish it right here at home is amazing."
