The Eagles Varsity Basketball team has had an exciting season with giant wins and some nail-biting losses. The team has taken on the playoffs with wind under their wings and are heading to their next game as the Bi-District Champions. The Eagle’s season started with great showings in tournaments, taking home a couple of trophies and medals in preseason tourneys. The Eagles first district game was a disappointing loss to Holland in December, followed immediately by a solid win in their second district game against Milano. The Eagles took a loss to the Thrall Tigers in their next game, but when the Eagles came back around for the rematch in February, they took the win in Overtime. When taking on the Granger Lions on February 9, the Eagles secured their place in the playoffs by scoring the 51-45 win.  The Eagles traveled to Brenham on Tuesday, February 10, to take on the Schulenburg Shorthorns in the Bi-District playoff game. The Shorthorns have an aggressive playing style, but they could not get past the Eagle’s defense to get ahead. The Eagles took the trophy and the title with their 57-52 win against the Shorthorns. Thursday, February 22, the Eagles will take on the Sabine Pass Sharks for the Area Championship Game. Be sure to Maroon Out and cheer the Eagles on to victory.

In a thrilling showdown that had fans on the edge of their seats, the Bremond Tigers secured their first Bi-District win in 13 years last night against the Rapoport Ravens. The game, filled with intense action and nail-biting moments, showcased the resilience and determination of the Tigers as they fought tooth and nail for victory. The game remained neck and neck throughout, with both teams refusing to back down. The tension in the air was palpable as neither side allowed the ball to touch the ground, demonstrating their unwavering commitment to victory. Despite a brief setback when the Ravens took the lead early in the fourth quarter, the Tigers rallied behind standout performances from Maclane Minor, Rhett Olsen, and others. Minor’s clutch three-pointer, Olsen’s strong presence under the basket and Moreheads rebounds turned the tide in Bremond’s favor, propelling them to a hard-fought 47-39 triumph. The victory was not only a testament to the skill and determination of the Tigers but also to the unwavering support of their fans. The Bremond faithful turned out in force, cheering their team on every step of the way and fueling their drive to victory. With this historic win behind them, the Tigers now set their sights on the Area Championship. Their next challenge awaits on Friday, February 23rd, as they face off against Grapeland High School at Leon High School. Fans are encouraged to come out and support their beloved Tigers as they continue their quest for glory. Leading the charge for the Tigers in their Bi-District victory were Maclane Minor with an impressive 23 points, supported by Carson Crowley, Xavier Clark, Braylon Estrada, and Tristan Morehead, who contributed crucial points to secure the win. Bremond may be a small town, but its heart beats fiercely for its Tigers, and with each victory, the roar of their supporters grows louder. As the team marches forward, the entire community stands behind them, united in their passion for basketball and their belief in the power of teamwork and determination.

Lions and Lady Lions Heft Trophies High After Recent Championship Wins

The Lions Basketball season is beginning to heat up as both the Lady Lions and Lions Varsity teams have won championship games and will continue up the brackets towards March Madness. The Lions did not let their loss to Mexia keep them down, as they traveled to neutral territory to take on old foes, the C. H. Yoe, Yoeman. While the Yoeman were not going to go down without a fight, the Lions still took home the 50-47 win and the bi-district trophy. The Lions’ next challenger, the Clifton Cubs, have had a very similar season to the Lions. They have the same number of wins, but an overall lower scoring average than the Lions. The matchup should be intense as Franklin tries to claw their way to the trophy. The Lions will travel to meet up with the Cubs on Thursday February 22 for the area matchup. The Lady Lions took on the Grandview Zebras on February 16 for their area matchup in Waco. Much like their counterparts in the Serengeti, the Lady Lions made a quick snack of the Lady Zebras with a 63-57 win that gave them the Area trophy. Their next matchup, against the Little River Academy Bumblebees, left a sting as the Bees took home the win, knocking the Lady Lions out of the brackets. The Lady Lions have had a solid season and should be proud of the many trophies they have brought to the hallowed halls of FHS.
