Honors pour in for JPII

The Guardians’ Dezmon Dudley (32), C.J. Kowalik (3) and Joseph Kapavik (right) all earned some form of postseason honors from TAPPS following a wildly successful 2019-20 campaign on the hardwood.

All good things come to an end sooner or later.

For the John Paul II boys basketball team, their record-shattering run during the 2019-20 season ended at the TAPPS Class 4A state tournament with an 87-49 loss to eventual champion The Woodlands Christian Academy. It was the same team that the Guardians fell to a season ago in the playoffs, but head coach Forrest Blackwell said his squad can once again learn from the experience of battling the best in the state with everything on the line.
