After the first half, Lake Travis lead 3-0. Soccer is an interesting sport to photograph, mainly because the action very nearly never stops. This was a fun game and both teams played hard.

The second half saw only one more Lake Travis score early on. This rest of the second half was a defensive struggle, full of fast-paced action on both sides, but Lake Travis wins today, 4-0.

Varsity Boys Basketball: Hays vs. Lake Travis at Dripping Springs HS

Lake Travis varsity boys defeated Hays tonight in a very exciting game. The final score was 62-45, but at halftime the score was 25-24 in favor of Lake Travis. It was tight most of the way, with Lake Travis pulling away in the 4th quarter, sealing the game with a show of power inside in the last few minutes. Hays never gave up though, and early in the second half it looked like they might be able to pull this one out, but it just wasn’t to be. Tonight belonged to the Cavaliers.
