Saltillo Lions Basketball Goes Undefeated in District Play

The Saltillo Lions basketball team, with their third win of the week, and eleventh in a row, have completed their regular season, going undefeated in 1A District-24.

Saltillo clearly had their eye on the prize Saturday, as opposed to Senior Night Tuesday and Friday night, where the Lions could not pull ahead until the end of the game. The story was different Saturday, though, as Saltillo led Yantis 17-11 after the first quarter. The Lions never looked back, taking a 33-21 lead into halftime. Saltillo dominated the third quarter, though, outscoring Yantis 27-9 to take a demanding 60-30 lead into the final quarter of regular season play for both teams. Even though the Yantis Owls outscored the Lions 12-6 in the fourth, the only quarter in which Yantis was able to do so, the damage was already done, and Saltillo beat the Owls 66-42 to become 1A District-24 champions.

Saturday Chris Boekhorst led the Lions with 31 points. Andrew Redburn had 14 points, Coy Collins scored 8 points, Caden McGill added 5 points and Gunner Tarver and David Whitworth rounded out the scoring for the Lions with 3 and 2 points, respectively.

The Lions complete district play undefeated at 11-0. They are 17-7 for the season and are ranked #13 in Class 1A in a TABC Poll.
