Prestonwood wins state

The Prestonwood Christian boys basketball team celebrates winning the TAPPS 6A state championship on Saturday against district rival John Paul II, 71-63.

ROBINSON — There's an age-old sports adage about it being difficult to beat a team three times in a season. And yet, that's all the Prestonwood Christian boys basketball team has done lately.

The Lions went unbeaten in TAPPS 1-6A play, winning their final 10 games of the regular season before being dealt rematches with district opponents during each leg of their postseason — topping rivals Bishop Lynch and Trinity Christian-Addison to earn their spot in Saturday's 6A state championship game.
