Reporter/Teresa Ging Thorndale’s Eric Hinistrosa turned in one of his best games with 11 points in the Bulldog’s victory over Georgetown Gateway. Reporter/Teresa Ging Thorndale put a screeching halt to its unexplainable threegame losing skid with a resounding 78-47 victory over Georgetown Gateway Friday and then whipped Granger 62-43 Tuesday night on the road.

However, the once 10th ranked Bulldogs (16-7, 7-3) three setbacks have sent District 26A into a confusing tailspin.

Bartlett claims the district championship after its victory over Holland Tuesday to settle a lot of the district dust.

Had Holland won, there would have been a four-way tie for first place, which would have meant that there would have been a four-team tournament held at the end of the week to determine playoff spots.

Thorndale and Thrall tie for second and school officials were meeting Wednesday morning to determine if and when there might be a playoff game for second.

Against Gateway, Jordan Hafley paved the way with 22 points, followed by Schaefer’s 13 and Hinistrosa’s 11.

After three straight setbacks, the Bulldogs cruised to the win over Gateway, springing to a 22-5 lead in the first quarter and led 60-30 heading into the final period.
