The Rattler basketball teams played their first home district games on Friday night as they took on Judson High School.
The varsity Rattlers started strong with a solid first quarter, but at the half, the Rattlers found themselves down 11 points, 28-39. In the second half, Judson’s pressure defense and attacking offense took a toll on the Rattlers. The Rattlers fell, 55-91.
On the sub-varsity levels:
The Rattlers JV team lost and both the 9th grade Purple team and White team won.
The varsity Rattlers will be back in action next week as they will participate in the Hays Rebel Classic Tournament, Dec. 27-29. The Rattlers will open up tournament play against Brownsville Hanna at 2:00pm at Hays High School.
