The Harmony Science Academy might be well known for their science fairs, robotics awards, and computer science technology, but now they should be known for basketball. In just their third year as a basketball program, Harmony is headed to the 1A State Final Four Thursday in Austin vs Dallas Triple A Academy.
Head Coach Mike Gonzales told NC9, "It's been very exciting, we have had a lot of parents, a lot of fans, a lot of coaches from the area calling us, congratulating us and wishing us luck in the state tournament." Captain and Senior Point Guard added, "Richard Sandoval: It's been really exciting. I have been here for three years, and the other two years have been not so good, and just to make it to the final four is really exciting." Freshman guard Bryan Urrutia scored 28 points vs Wellington, and he can't wait to take on Dallas Triple A Academy. "I think that everything is possible with these guys, we just have to play good, and I think we are going to be good for this game."
FSN Southwest and Time Warner Cable Ch. 24 will televise the game in El Paso, at 7:30am MT.
