Vets boys, girls sweep rival Flour Bluff; Ray's Dodd gets win #500

The Eagles won both first place games against the Hornets Tuesday at Flour Bluff while Ray gave its coach a milestone victory.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — It was a busy Tuesday night on the high school basketball court with first place rivalry games and a career milestone win.

The #10 Veterans Memorial girls got out to a double digit second half lead over Flour Bluff and then had to rally in a 41-40 win. Flour Bluff's Harlie Gallaspy missed a runner at the buzzer that would have given the Hornets the win on the home court.

The Vets boys followed that game with a win of their own, topping the rival Hornets 58-46 to also grab first place in the standings.

Also in District 29-5A, Ray Texans coach Robert Dodd got career win number 500 with the 66-51 victory over visiting Victoria East.
