It was a tough week for the Yellowjacket basketball teams. The Lady Jackets started district play with a 29-40 loss to Spurger at home on Tuesday. Thursday through Saturday they participated in the Colmesneil tournament where they played Woden JV, Groveton JV, Onalaska, and Goodrich.

They picked up one win against Woden JV. Sydney Brock was named All-Tournament for her efforts.

The Yellowjacket boys basketball team traveled to Centerville on Tuesday after just beating the Bulldogs in the Apple Springs tournament. The Bulldogs sought revenge and beat the Jackets 42-58. The Jackets also participated in the Colmesneil tournament playing teams from Warren, Deweyville, Goodrich, Centerville, and Colmesneil. They picked up another win against Centerville and also beat Colmesneil 49-26 on Saturday.

This week the JV and Varsity boys’ team will play Sabine Pass at home and then start district on Friday Dec. 15 against High Island.

The girls’ team will go to Leggett early in the week and have a bye on Friday due to High Island canceling their girls basketball season because of low numbers.
