The Warriors hosted East Hardy at home Friday night and added another win to their season by a score of 81 – 62
The Warriors took on Midland Trail of Hico Saturday at home, winning that game 70 to 54.

At this point in the season, the Warriors’ record stands at 16 -2, and the team is ranked #6 in Class A.
