By Dustin Bauman

The varsity basketball team competed in the Pearsall tournament over the weekend. Overall, the Bulldogs had a successful trip going 3-2 in the tournament. The team played well but fell short in two of the games. Bandera scores were as follows: Bandera 62- Zapata 53, Bandera 56- Pearsall 44, Bandera 49- Dilley 60, Bandera 63- Natalia 20, Bandera 30- Carrizo Springs 49.
All players contributed throughout the weekend. Brandon Chamberlain was selected as an All Tournament player. He played well and scored 6, 10, 21, 19, and 13 points in the games respectively.
Jerry Alcorta led the team as the point guard and put his teammates in position to be successful as he had several steals and assists throughout the weekend. Alex Cardenas and Ben Shackelford were major contributors, as they provided scoring and defensive production for the team.
The Bulldogs will travel to Uvalde on Dec. 5, to face off against the Coyotes.
