With just under two months before the start of the Texas high school basketball season, the San Benito Lady ’Hounds’ Booster Club is sponsoring a boys’ and girls’ preseason tournament.
The tournament will be open to varsity and junior varsity players and is currently slated for October 1, 2023 at the Greyhound varsity gym, located within San Benito High School. Tourney start time is 11 a.m. Fans are encouraged to attend. Admission price for spectators was not available at the time this story was written.
There is, however, a $125 per team tournament entry fee which organizers say will be used to pay for officials and trophies.
Longtime girls’ varsity coach Able Moreno said he is excited to see the plethora of talent that continues to develop in the Resaca City.
“This a great chance for our athletes to prepare for the upcoming season and see how the work they’ve put in the offseason has paid off,” said Moreno. “And it also gives our coaching staff a chance to see who is ready to make that next step in their development and be a major contributor this season.”
TASO officials will be on hand for the full court matchups which will determine the winners. In addition to the opportunity to earn medals and trophies, a tournament MVP will be crowned at the end of all play.
