Showing out at The Nest Tuesday night, Redhawk basketball teams sent Wakeland home with losses from both the girls’ and boys’ sides.

The boys’ team celebrated their first District 9-5A win of the season after obliterating Wakeland’s undefeated winning streak, 68-62.

“It was a great feeling,” senior Eric Lynn said. “We know we can beat any team in the district it’s just up to us and how we play. This can be a real great turning point for us this season and we’ll look to Friday to continue this against a good Lone Star team. This is a great time in the season to be turning it on and hopefully we can string together some wins and get back in playoff contention.”

On the girls’ side, the Redhawks held the pressure against Wakeland all game long finishing with a 51-21 victory. The girls continue to maintain their perfect district record and has stacked up with eight wins in a row.

“We just want to continue building chemistry and rhythm,” junior Maya Jain said. “We’re mentally and physically locked in to our competition each game and it shows on the scoreboard.”
