APHS basketball players competing during off season
By Richard Gonzales
Aransas Pass High School basketball appears to have returned to their ultimate days of glory when both boys and girls teams were equally competitive at the Regional level. What it takes is not only skill level and good coaching, but also an extra effort by individual players. Four Panthers will demonstrate that as they head to off-season tournaments at Xavier University in New Orleans on May 20-21 playing against like-minded players. Kira Gaitan and Leanna Galindo are members of the select Texas Dream. Colin Hale and Matt McElroy are select members of the Texas Hurricanes. The Hurricanes, comprised of players from the Coastal Bend Region, are two-time national champions. The Texas Dream are now challenged to follow in the boys’ footsteps. The Hurricanes and the Texas Dream teams are out of Corpus Christi.
