D-Squad puts up strong performance at, tT&amp;T Ce 00ter SUBMrB'ED REPORT On one of the premier stages in all of basketball, the D-Squad basketball team took fourth place at the All-American Sports National Team Tourna- ment at the AT&T Center in San Antonio on July 12-14. The team from Kyle, featur- ing players from the Lehman Girls' basketball team, was one of 20 squads in the tournament D-Squad finished pool play with a 2-1 mark, securing the second seat. Head coach Fred- erick Coy was pleased with the squad's grit. "The gifts played some tough competition all week- end and showed many teams and organizations around the state that they can win at that level," Coy said in an emailed response. From there, D-Squad at- tempted to make a deep run in single elimination bracket play. The team played three games in a five-hour span on July 13. They cruised by with 36 points in game one. Game two saw D-Squad squeak past a Houston team in an overtime thriller to reach the Elite Fight. Only the Athletic Elite team out of the Dallas area stood in their way of the Final Four. D-Squad fell behind 11-2 in the early going, but through sheer determination, rallied for a 12-0 run to take control of the game. Resilient defense allowed the D-Squad to prevail with a sev- en-point win to reach the Final Four. The team fought hard in their final two games on Sunday, but lost both, finishing fourth. While they fell justtwo games short of winning the champi- onship, Coy was pleased with the efforts mide by his team. "The gifts have grown and improved so much since the beginning of the summer," Coy said. "I am very proud of them!"

The camp, which runs from July 30 through August 1, features students ranging from fourth through twelfth grades. Campers are placed into age-specific groups, and work on the fundamentals of the game, while learning to build a team mentality as well. From the Sidelines Continued from pg. 1 B comprises of one medical pro- fessional. This was a result of House Bill 2038, which passed into law on June 17, 2011. The sweeping change in mindset toward concussions correlates back to the case of Swope. He proves the system is working to ensure players un- derstand the risk of the game. No doubt, the move to quit must have been crushing for him. Yet, his livelihood took pre- cedence over all else. That is why I believe Ryan Swope is a hero. While he still contemplates a possible come- back after this season, he in- evitably made the decision to reassess his life in football. He realized the long-term health ramifications the game pos- sesses. Mostly, he made a choice few football players have ever made. He stepped away from the game he loved so much. Lehman Athletics Continued from pg. 1 B 7-on-7 drills, will bolster his team's confidence on the field. "Early in the summer, we participated with Stony Point and Lake Travis in the 7 on 7 qualification tournament, but we struggled," Raymond said. "I was super proud of how the kids reacted to that experi- ence." Now he hopes the squad can shift that experience to the field. "I am anxious to see how we can transfer what we've done over the summer into [summer football practice]." Lobos football begins prac- tice on August 12. Lehman volleyball also read- ies for the year ahead. Head coach Megan Cooper believes the united summer strength and conditioning pro- gram has aided team develop- ment. "It is so important for these gifts to remain agile and keep their verticals," she said. "If you don't do anything over the summer, they go away." !i! , August is extremely intelligent and thoughtful, but shows his playful puppy side when he's feeling confident.
