Pin Oak Middle School’s eighth-grade girls basketball team
Pin Oak Middle School’s eighth-grade girls basketball team (pictured) won the Pin Oak Invitational Tournament. The girls faced many challenging opponents during the two-day tournament, including teams from The Village School, Pershing Middle School and Forest Brook Middle School. Pin Oak ultimately won the championship, 22-18, over Plummer Middle School from Aldine. More than 35 fouls were called during the final game as Pin Oak’s scrappy play won out over the taller Plummer girls. The tournament champs are (top row, from left) Maddie Vollrath, Ainsley Pinkerton, Tunie Mullen, Riley Tackett, coach Phyllis Fredericks, Julia Morstead, Sarah Spires, Ashley York, Elisa Adams, Arleth Milan, (bottom row, from left) Mia Lopez, Dazmine Gay, Allie Maglaras and Penny Meehan.
