Veterans Memorial leaves Navarro boys with work to do in 27-4A playoff chase
(Geronimo) - Navarro still controls its own destiny in the District 27-4A boys basketball playoff race, but the Panthers have San Antonio-Veterans Memorial breathing down their necks after a 62-52 loss to the Patriots on Friday in Geronimo.

With a 3-4 district record, Navarro (10-14 overall) sits fourth in the 27-4A standings, but only one game ahead of fifth-place Veterans Memorial (2-5) with three left on the schedule. The teams split their head-to-head meetings. Wimberley is in the driver's seat for the 27-4A title with a 7-0 district mark, Austin-Eastside Memorial (5-2) sits in second place, and La Vernia (4-3) is in third, a game ahead of the Panthers.

Veterans Memorial led Friday's game 13-11 at the end of the first quarter, then strung together a 25-8 run in the second period to put Navarro in a 38-19 hole by halftime. The Panthers clawed their way back into the game by outscoring the Patriots 13-3 in the third period, but Veterans Memorial edged Navarro 21-20 in the fourth quarter to secure the 10-point win.

Christian Soto was the only Navarro scorer in double figures, finishing with 14 points. Mason McCaig netted eight points and a team-high eight rebounds. Kimble Harrison totaled six points, Kieran Andrews and Daniel Pina five apiece, William Tate and Tyler Law four each, and Rosendo Cuevas and Robert Conline three apiece.

The Panthers shot 42 percent overall and 38 percent (5-13) from three-point range, but they only went 9-of-20 (45 percent) at the free throw line.

Navarro has a chance to move into a third-place tie with a road over La Vernia on Tuesday. The Panthers and Bears square off at 6:30 p.m.

Navarro girls no match for Veterans Memorial
(San Antonio) - The playoff bound Navarro girls basketball team can finish no higher than second place in District 27-4A after falling on the road to San Antonio-Veterans Memorial 76-19 on Friday.

Veterans Memorial (26-9, 9-0) clinched the district championship with the win, forging a three-game lead over Navarro and La Vernia (both 6-3 in district) with just one game left on the schedule.

The Panthers and La Vernia will play for outright possession of second place and the No. 2 playoff seed in the district Tuesday in Geronimo at 6:30 p.m.

Anna Longoria scored seven points to lead Navarro on Friday, followed by Amber Reneau with four, and Haleigh Ortiz, Alli Harless, Molly Vrana, and Hailey Teasley with two apiece.
