Kingwood High School is proud to announce that they are the 2020 District 21-6A boys and girls swimming and diving champions!

Atascocita: The No. 8 state-ranked Eagles improved to 7-1 in District 22-6A play and 23-4 overall with a hard-fought 45-42 victory over Kingwood at home on Friday.

Cameron Morrison and Tom Hart III led a late rally. The two combined for 11 points as the Eagles used a 14-5 run to end the game on the winning side. Hart finished with 13 points and Morrison added 12 more.

The Summer Creek Bulldogs and Atascocita Eagles, both ranked in the top 10 of 6A boys basketball by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches, have been two of the most consistent teams in the state all year.

This week, they both picked up key wins, continuing on an impending collision course for a key matchup Feb. 4.

The Kingwood Mustangs tied a bow on the first round of District 22-6A play on Friday with a convincing 54-34 victory over Sam Rayburn at home.

Tommy Newman poured in 18 points and Walker Blaine added 13 more as the Mustangs kept pace with the top teams in the district, finishing the first round with a 6-2 district mark and a 16-8 record overall.

Even though it was during the holiday school break, on Jan. 3 several hundred fans turned out to honor Kingwood High School’s legendary basketball coach Royce Huseman in a game halftime ceremony.

A Walker Blaine putback at the buzzer lifted Kingwood to a hard-fought 60-58 victory at Humble early last week. Blaine led the team in scoring with 15 points, but none were bigger than his buzzer beater.
