Respect the "K" spilling over to basketball at Kilgore

KILGORE, TX (KLTV) -

Winning state championships, district titles, and making deep post-season runs is normal at Kilgore, for the football program. Now you can add basketball to the list.

The Bulldogs have claimed their first district championship since the early 1980's and will look to make a push towards Austin. Kilgore who has one league game left has a chance to finish a perfect 12 and 0 in 16-3A action. It's safe to say, respect the "K" has now spilled over to the hardwood.

It feels great to be remembered for something, " power forward Nick Orange said. "Our goal was to win district and now since we won district its time to move on and move forward." Small forward Sylvester Conrod added,"Its very overwhelming. Its not something we are used to. And for it to be in the basketball program, its really nice to have." "Its really nice to make history, especially my senior year," guard Clayton Mauldin said. "Its really cool for this town I think, and we were able to do it in two sports."
