BALMORHEA, Tx – Balmorhea has made it to the state championship game three times in the last five seasons.
That means that this year’s seniors were freshmen when the Bears last played in the title game. But they’re hoping the results are different this season.
Balmorhea played in back-to-back state championships in 2016 and 2017, but fell short in both games. Several seniors on the team say they can use that experience to help them this year.
“Even though those seniors started it, we have something that we can finish. We can make it our own. We can win it,” said senior Sean Orozco.
“We’ve made it now three times and all we’re lacking is to come back with that gold medal and that would be really amazing if we could do that,” said head coach Vance Jones.
