The Lewisville High School girls and boys basketball teams just barely made the playoffs, but already have some interesting stories to tell. The girls’ team, which went 6–24 during the season, defeated the District 6-5A champion Colleyville Heritage, who were 25-11, in the first round, but were defeated in the second round by Mansfield Timberview.

The boys team, on the other hand, defeated defending 5A state champs Marcus High School in a “loser goes home” tiebreaker game to decide who went to the playoffs. Word has it Marcus lost its rhythm when the LHS team refused to break for tea and crumpets. LHS plays–you guessed it–Colleyville Heritage on Tuesday night.

Argyle is getting its first grocery store. Hold on while I change my pants.

Apparently unaware that there is a such thing as "public image", the City of Farmers Branch is in the process of paying over $1 million on legal fees to fight the creation of a single-member district that would probably lead to a Hispanic city council member. That’s in addition to the $6 million plus they’ve spent on legal fees for their failed immigration policies.

Lewisville is getting its first synagogue. L'chaim, I suppose.

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has released it's Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) information from the latest school year. You can look it all up on their website. Be prepared to use the zoom function on your browser, because the data pretty much scream "I hate your eyes."

Finally, Lewisville's newest distillery will be having a tasting at Hall's Liquor in Colleyville on Friday between 1 and 4 p.m. I've been told the official hashtag for the event will be "#Lewisarioadfzkxcndfwer".
