At the University of Texas at Austin Frank Erwin Center (within walking distance of the state capitol building), Justin F. Kimball parents and supporters cheered the season-long performance of the basketball team (38-3).
It was great to walk from the Save Texas Schools Rally held in Austin today on the steps of the state capitol to the final championship basketball game of Justin F. Kimball High School, our neighborhood school.
We watched these Kimball Knights make their best shots to become 2011 4A Texas state basketball champions along with 12,836 other basketball fans.
Taking an early lead in the game against La Marque high school, the Knights made all the right moves. Then with a precious few minutes left, fans had no time to be comfortable. The La Marque Cougars had come back, and they showed their attitude and skill by closing in on the score, threatening to claim victory.
But Kimball Held them off and ended up taking state 78 – 64
Congratulations to Coach Johnson and the whole team and staff at Kimball
