The Lady Trojan freshman and junior varsity basketball teams were in Mathis on Saturday morning and split their two games with the Lady Pirates.

The freshman girls lost by the score of 39-28, while the JV squad had the Pirates walking the plank in a 38-18 contest.

Lisa Tamez led the Beeville freshman squad with 17 points in the first game. She got help from Priscilla Koenig with three points while Eddika Ortega, Samantha Salazar and Tif’ni Puebla all contributed two points in the loss.

Defensively, the Lady Trojans were led by the play of Salazar and Puebla, according to freshman coach Jason Hinds.

“We out-hustled them, ran our plays and made them play our style of basketball, but we ran into foul trouble early and were not able to recover,” Hinds said.

The JV game was a defensive triumph for the Lady Trojans. Several steals by the Beeville “D” led to easy baskets.

“We are patiently trying to read the passing lanes and we are looking to make the steal,” said JV coach Gracy Bryce.

Brianna Jackson led the scoring for Beeville with nine points. Krystal Cuellar added eight markers while Tori Munoz and Aleis Pelitire each had six tallies. Amanda Gonzales followed with five points and Selyna Guerra made four in the win.

Coach Bryce named Jackson as the offensive player of the game and Munoz took the defensive honors.

The Lady Trojans played the visiting Ingleside Lady Mustangs on Tuesday night.

The Beeville girls will travel to San Antonio on Friday to challenge two private schools, Sunnybrook and Rainbow Hills.

Next Monday the Lady Trojans will be in West Oso to meet the Lady Bears and will follow that game up with a Tuesday night home encounter against the Ray Lady Texans.
