The Los Fresnos Falcons have been knee-deep in Non-District play for the 2022-23 Basketball season. But that won’t be for much longer as 32-6A play is just around the Corner for Marco Hinojosa’s ball club.

So far, the Falcons are currently 17-5 on the season and have had great performances at the San Perlita Tournament, the Hidalgo Pirate Basketball Classic, and The City of Palms Tournament. In tournament play, the Falcons have had some big wins over Brownsville Pace, Weslaco East, Alice, Laredo Alexander, San Perlita, Edcouch-Elsa, Carroll, and Rowe just to name a few.

With three more non-district games down the road, the Falcons will take on the Laredo United South Panthers on December 30, the PSJA Bears on January 3, and Edinburg Economedes on January 6. 32-6A play will begin for Los Fresnos on January 13 as the Falcons will host the Hanna Eagles. San Benito, Harlingen, Rivera, and Weslaco will follow in that order. 

Last season, Los Fresnos finished in fifth in 32-6A, missing the playoffs. This season Los Fresnos is determined to break into the postseason. Which is easier said than done in a now small district like 32-6A. A key core of Falcons led by JJ Salazar, Luis Ramirez, Gio Galvan, Jude Barrera and many other greats, Los Fresnos looks to make a statement in 32-6A play.
