Marion streak hits a dozen, district record still perfect after rout of Brahmas
(Marion) – Junior forward Jacob Wallace pumped in 27 points Tuesday night to help the Marion boys basketball team record its 12th straight win and move to 10-0 in District 27-3A with a 70-39 home blowout of Hallettsville.

Wallace connected on 11-of-13 field goal attempts and went 5-of-7 at the free throw line. He also pulled down seven rebounds.

Jackson Allen chipped in with 18 points and a team-high nine rebounds, Creet Rabenaldt erupted for 17 points, and both players went 3-5 from three-point range. Allen and Brevin Wilson each grabbed two steals.

Wilson finished with six points, Zach Goodwin five, and Jacob Berry two.

Marion shot 60.5 percent overall, 46.2 percent from three-point distance, and 73.9 percent (17-23) at the free throw line.

The Bulldogs led 14-10 at the end of the first quarter and 30-20 at halftime before using a 25-8 run in the third period to take a 27-point cushion into the final frame and essentially put the game away.

Marion (22-6, 10-0) has sole possession of first place in District 27-3A, but only a one-game lead over second-place Randolph (9-1) with four games left on the schedule. Hallettsville (6-4) and Luling (5-5) occupy the third and fourth sports.

The Bulldogs look to continue their winning streak Friday when they host Nixon-Smiley at 7:30 p.m.

Marion girls edge Hallettsville, avenge only district loss
(Marion) – The Marion girls basketball team made amends for its only District 27-3A loss Tuesday night with a hard-fought 52-47 home win over Hallettsville.

The Bulldogs, who dropped a road game to the Brahmas 44-36 on Jan. 5, took a 43-30 lead into the fourth quarter of the rematch in Marion and survived a 17-9 Hallettsville run in the final frame to hold on for the five-point win.

Madelyn Abrameit led Marion offensively with 20 points and also contributed four rebounds, three assists, and three steals.

Brianna Randle added 12 points and five rebounds. Samantha Hopper and Lizzie Abrameit chipped in with eight points apiece. Hopper collected four steals and three assists, while Abrameit corralled eight rebounds. Madison Batey also snared eight rebounds to go with four points.

The win keeps Marion alone atop the 27-3A standings with an 11-1 district record. The Bulldogs, 22-10 overall, lead Schulenburg (10-2) by a single game and Yoakum (9-3) by two with two games left on the schedule. Hallettsville (8-4) sits in fourth place and is no longer in contention for the district title. Those four teams all clinched playoff spots, but seeding is still up for grabs.

Marion held steady at No. 13 in this week’s TGCA 3A state rankings, and sits at No. 23 in the TABC poll.

The Bulldogs host Nixon-Smiley on Friday at 6:15 p.m. and conclude the regular season in Schulenburg next Tuesday.
