Sweeping the Heritage Coyotes, Friday night was a slam dunk for the Redhawks in District 9-5A play. 

For the second time this season, the girls’ beat the Coyotes 42-16, continuing their undefeated season (11-0).

“Our goal for going into Heritage’s game was to be very professional,” freshman Jezelle Moreno said. “We wanted to work on our defense, and get our offense more organized. We hope it helped us prepare for Frisco on Tuesday.”

The 64-59 win for the boys’ team was their fourth straight and brought their district record to 4-5. 

“Initially against Heritage we came out slow,” senior Eric Lynn said. “We made runs at the right time and came out with the win which continues our momentum that we hope to take into the second half of district.” 

Starting the district portion of their schedule with five straight losses, the team is slowing climbing up the standings and aiming for postseason play.

“Our goals for the rest of the year are to keep stringing together wins and play well enough to get into the playoffs,” Lynn said.
