SAN MARCOS — John Paul II claimed back-to-back TAPPS district championships Thursday night after handing San Marcos Academy an 84-33 defeat on the road.

The Guardians (15-7, 7-1) entered the week needing wins on consecutive nights against Austin Veritas and San Marcos Academy to clinch the program’s fourth league title in the last eight years. Head coach Forrest Blackwell’s team took care of business Wednesday night during a 78-56 win over Veritas and then finished things off with another romp on Thursday.
