Westbury Christian School’s Lady Wildcats
Westbury Christian School’s Lady Wildcats (pictured) are Greater Houston Athletic Conference basketball champs after winning all but one game during the regular season. During the conference tournament, the team started off strong with wins over St. Vincent de Paul, 37-6, and KIPP Academy, 38-7. Ultimately, the Lady Wildcats lost the final tournament game, 23-22, to St. Thomas More, in sudden-death overtime. Coaches Steve Hawley and Deb Watson credit the girls’ success to aggressive one-on-one defense and great shooting. The middle school champs are (top row, from left) Hawley, Lexi Kunetka, Kaylin Daniels, Faith Jonesia and Watson; (bottom row, from left) Piper Chance, Nicole Jih, Mia Blackburn, Kiley Surles and Makayla Gholar.
