Harlingen’s Michael Arellano shines in wins over San Benito, South

Harlingen High has found its form over the last few games as the Cardinals are currently 5-1 in District 32-6A play and remain a game back for first place.

A big reason for the Cards’ success is junior point guard Michael Arellano, who has been the catalyst to the team’s offense.

In last week’s win against San Benito Arellano netted 21 points and against Harlingen South on Tuesday he finished with 19 points.

With the strong week, Arellano was named the Valley Morning Star’s boys Player of the Week.

On the season, Arellano is averaging a team high 17.8 points per game. He will look to continue his strong season when the Cards meet the Brownsville Rivera Raiders tonight to wrap up the first round of league play.
