The Faith Academy of Marble Falls boys basketball team’s record-breaking season ended February 24 one win short of reaching the state tournament.
The Flames lost 76-60 to Yavneh Academy of Dallas in a Class 3A regional final contest in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools. Yavneh Academy is the No. 1-ranked team in the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches small private schools poll, while Faith is No. 2.
Faith’s only leads in the game were 2-0 and 13-11 in the first quarter.
Head coach Zakk Revelle said he knows those outside the program will commend the Flames on an excellent season, and they appreciate that. At the same time, their goal was to get to the state tournament. He believes next season’s returners will remember the disappointment and use it as motivation. He noted the Flames developed deeper relationships that will last beyond this season.
“It’s going to help tremendously,” Revelle said. “Now, we can’t say we’ve never done it. We can’t give that excuse. We’ve gotten to the top of the mountain. We have to do down and climb back up.”
