IT"S SHOWTIME 6PM Tonight @ Pope John XXIII Katy Texas TAPPS 4A Regional "IT'S A REMATCH"


Fort Bend Christian started a stellar season going over thirty wins including a victory at Westbury Christian Lady Wildcats den by 8 points.  The Lady Eagles look to soar and land their chance to win the District 4 Title, but was spoiled by a couple of losses to the Lady Pioneers of Lutheran South. One in the regular season and the second was the semi finals of District 4 Tournament. It was an opportunity missed by the Lady Eagles to play Westbury Christian for the District 4 Title who took the Title for the 5th straight year beating Lutheran South in the District 4 Tournament Championship game. The Lady Pioneers lost the Lady Wildcats twice this season. The second was for the District Title game.


Jan 17 – Westbury Christian over Lutheran South 70-42
Jan 25 - Fort Bend Christian over Westbury Christian 59-51
Jan 29 - Fort Bend Christian lost Lutheran South 54-60
Feb 14 - Fort Bend Christian lost Lutheran South 65-58
Feb 16 - Westbury Christian over Lutheran South 49-42
Feb 26 – It’s SHOWTIME!!!


Will the Lady Eagles of Fort Bend Christian beat the Lady Wildcats of Westbury Christian for the second time or will the four times defending STATE Champion Westbury Christian still have the will to win and move forward to claim their Fifth State Championship? Will the hungry Lady Eagles of Fort Bend Christian have enough strength to soar high tonight and land their chance for a State Title or will the Lady Wildcats spoil their chances? It will all remain a QUESTION until tonight when THE GAME is played. Who’s hungry for the WIN?

Katy's Seven Lakes Senior Guard Lauren Sim - Lady Spartans

Seven Lakes Senior Guard Lauren Sim - Photos by Troy Sim
Seven Lakes fought hard and took a 2 point lead going into the fourth quarter but the Spartans couldn't stop a hard charging and more talented Clear Springs who ranks #3 in state. They were one win away from representing Region 3 (Houston area) at the state UIL Final Four tournament in Austin. "I am very proud of Lauren, it's been a long four years of high school basketball with huge dedication and commitment that has culminated in Seven Lakes many firsts, including Region Championship runners-up and a 33-7 record." Said Troy Sim, Lauren's dad. He is one of the most dedicated father I've known from summer basketball since our daughters were in grade school. What a great journey for Lauren. The memoirs that a father will treasure for life. I salute you Troy.

She finished with 11 points, countless assists, rebounds and a few blocks. Lady wildcats was led by senior post Allison Ondrusek with 18 points followed by junior guard Hannah Cambel with 17 points who hits 5 three pointers with 4 of them before the half giving the wildcats a 29-11 lead.

Following the boys.. Big things are about to happen for the Girls Basketball Program at The Village School

Challenges for the Village Lady Vikings helped make a better future for the basketball program. They knew that with gain comes sacrifice.

The last game of the season shows a lot of promise. Village Lady Vikings scored 68 and hold The Oaks to 18.  Haley Thompson scored 28 points followed by Sophie Milich with 18, and Iciar Iturmendi  with 14. “The first full varsity girls basketball season in school history, with only 6 players, zero seniors, and it was a WINNING SEASON! So proud of my team!” says Coach Brotherton in his first season with the Lady Vikings. “The girls showed great toughness and togetherness, which are the staples of our program!" and quoted "TnT: Toughness n Togetherness GO VIKINGS!"  He added.
