TAPPS WRAP: Village School wins crown; Rosehill Christian, Westbury Christian finish as runner-ups
It was a busy weekend in West, Texas as TAPPS put a bow on their 2019-2020 boys and girls basketball seasons.
We will start with the girls and with that The Village School.
This team started as VYPE's preseason No. 1 team and for good reason. They were loaded. The Vikings didn't disappoint this year finishing 37-3 and winning the TAPPS 6A State Championship over Prestonwood Christian.
The Vikings raced out to a 22-12 lead before extending it to 39-20 at the half. The Village School outscored them in every quarter the rest of the way to win big, claiming the 75-48 victory and the title.
