The SWTJC Cowboys put on an offensive show beating St. Philip's College 106-78 on Oct. 12 in the season opener of the South Texas Club Sports League.
"We had a good crowd and our guys played well on both sides of the ball. It was a great way to start the season," Cowboys coach Richard Flores said.
Four SWTJC players scored in double figures led by point guard Denzel Andrews with 22 points. Ethan Lynch with 17 points, John Register with 15 and Cole Martinez with 13 were the other leading scorers.
In the women's game, the SWTJC Cowgirls trailed by nine points at the half and then staged a dramatic comeback to down St. Philip's, 68-65.
"I'm very proud of the way our girls came back in the second half to post the victory," Cowgirls coach Jesus Garcia said.
A balanced scoring attack was one of the keys for the Cowgirls as four players scored in double figures including: Desiree Trevino, 14 points; Cristina Guevara, 13 points; Araceli Delgado, 11 points; and Chelsie Casiano, 10 points.
The Cowgirls will play their next game on Oct. 19, when they travel to San Antonio to face Palo Alto College. The Cowboys next game is Oct. 26 in San Antonio against Northeast Lakeview College.
