Judson's roll continues step by step in the high school football playoffs. The Rockets can't afford to take Smithson Valley lightly just because they beat them in the regular season. Everyone is dialing it up in the playoffs. This time the matchup will take place at a neutral location...Alamo Stadium. Let's pack the seats at the "Rockpile" and help our kids take it to the next level!
After playing to a tie at halftime, the Rockets blasted off in the second half against O'Connor and the defense dug in its heels. In the end it was a commanding victory. The next round is against Laredo United and again it's at Rutledge. Let's help the Rockets continue their roll through the playoffs and pack Rutledge!!
**NOTE THE SPECIAL SALE DAY FOR SEASON TICKET HOLDERS
These three girls have been burning up the track for the last several years and now they will take their track shoes to the next level. Mariah Kuykendoll, Zantori Dickerson and Darionne Gibson have all been anchors on the Girls Track Team that won the State Championship two years in a row and they are now looking forward to what is ahead.
Mariah Kuykendoll signed with the University of Kansas for a full athletic scholarship. She is not only a top notch athlete, but she is also an exceptional student. Mariah moved away for a short period of time, but came back to the area and Judson last year in her junior year to help the team sprint their way to a second state title. She has been a great 4X400m relay member and excellent at running the 4X200m.
Zantori Dickerson arrived at Judson just as the 2015 track season was starting and ran much of that year on JV, but won a varsity slot just in time to start district competition. She went on to run a tremendous third leg of the State Championship 4X400m team that set a school record. She has also decided to sign a national letter of intent to go to the University of Kansas, so she and Mariah will be teammates again.
Darionne Gibson has decided to accept a full track scholarship to UTSA. Darionne has been on of Judson's best 400m runners since she arrived as a freshman. She ran the 4X400m relay as a sophomore the first state title and ran a better first leg of the 4X400m as a junior as the team won it's second championship. Congratulations to all of these girls, their families and all the coaches.
She is one of the top girls basketball players in the state of Texas and she's been putting on a clinic for years at Wagner High School. Amber Ramirez is playing out her senior to see how far her team can go, but she is preparing for life after high school. She has signed to play basketball for Texas Christian University next year. Amber could have played almost anywhere with interest the last couple of years coming from all over the country...including some perennial powers. She's chose a great school in TCU...going to be a Horned Frog! We congratulate Amber, her family and Coach Camacho on the news.
Anabelle Tovar, a senior starting wing for the Judson Lady Rocket basketball team signed a National Letter of Intent to attend and play basketball at Houston Baptist University. She will be receiving a full athletic scholarship and will be playing for the Lady Huskies next year coached by Donna Finnie. The HBU Women's Basketball program is NCAA D-1 competition level and represents the Southland Conference. Anabelle is the daughter of Joe and Brenda Tovar and sister to Matthew and Ayden. Congratulations.
