This past Friday, Januray 17th, the boys opened up District play for the 2019-2020 season vs the Cotulla Cowboys. Although 20 games into the season plagued by injuries, this would be the first game where every player was available to play and man did it show. The Pirates played fast and pressed all night long. The pressure defense was led by Senior Jaron Calderon with 6 steals and 5 deflections on ball with Junior Mark Cantu having 5 steals and 8 deflections of his own. The Pirates fast tempo offense was led by Senior Captain John Martinez who finished with 20 points and 12 rebounds with the help from Mr. 1000 himself, Robert Ibarra adding 14 points, 4 steals, and 4 rebounds for a complete game. The Pirates won 76-53 over the Cowboys.
