After defeating IDEA McAllen to win the Texas Charter School Academic and Athletic League South Texas regional, the Jubilee Brownsville Lady Titans and head coach Victor Venegas find themselves heading back to the state basketball tournament held at the Georgetown Corbin Robertson Center.

It’s definitely a familiar spot as this year’s berth marks the third straight for the Lady Titans, who also head into Saturday’s 10 a.m. semifinal game against Katy International Leadership of Texas High School having now won three straight undefeated district crowns.

It’s a special feat for Venegas and company, but the 2018-19 season the Lady Titans have seemingly breezed through hasn’t been without its challenges.

Many of those stem from the young charter school program coming of age.

“ This year was challenging due to the fact that last year we graduated our first senior class,” Venegas said. “The reason we were successful the past two seasons was because I’ve had the same team coming up from ninth, 10th, 11th and 12th. This year, we had to adjust with new girls coming into this school. We took a big hit with five seniors leaving, but our mentality, the way we run practices and our system never changed. We managed to have those new girls buy into the program and it worked out.”
