texasCentral Catholic is a TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools) 6A school and we are in 4A. I thought our boys battled hard but fatigue set in after playing two games in five hours after a long winter break. We managed to score only two points in third quarter and ultimately cost us this game. We will play two more games tomorrow against two schools from Houston and San Antonio.
