District play begins

John Paul II senior guard Dezmon Dudley supplied 15 points during Tuesday’s district opener.

SAN MARCOS — The Guardians kicked off TAPPS District 3-4A competition in style with a lopsided 84-38 victory over Holy Cross Tuesday night at San Marcos Academy.

John Paul II (11-14, 1-0) overcame a bit of a slow start by forcing multiple turnovers in the opening period that led to buckets in transition. Head coach Forrest Blackwell’s team built a 19-4 lead after the first quarter and later held a commanding 42-15 edge going into the locker room at halftime.
