Spring, Texas – October 3rd, 2017: After 10 years in business, Legends Sports Complex has announced they are closing indefinitely.
TO OUR LEGENDS FAMILY:
“Over the past month following Hurricane Harvey, we have seen our community come together and help out so many in need, including us here at Legends. The amount of damage we sustained was incredible. Seeing how much we accomplished in a short amount of time was amazing, and it wouldn’t have been possible without each of you. We came back so far that literally within days we were able to reopen for regular operation, in a safe environment full of activity, fun, and with hope to recover.
During this time, with our community coming together, we were reminded how much Legends has impacted all of us over the last ten years. Seeing families that have been with us from the very beginning and former athletes that started in our very first basketball academy, come back from college to help was amazing. Listening to parents talk about how much fun their kids have had here over the years, through our leagues or the relationships they have created because of being here was humbling for each of us. It is easy for us to forget how many lives we have touched over the years, but through this process we have been greatly reminded how much sports and fitness can create lifelong relationships and bring people together.
Olympians trained here. Professional athletes mentored young children here. We were a great first job for young kids to learn about hard work and service to others. Parents spent time with their children, young adults earned college scholarships, people who were not fit or healthy worked hard and recovered their old strength and vitality, and athletes of all ages left everything out on the courts and fields, in the arena of competition, all here at Legends. We spent ten years creating a lot of very special memories together that will last a lifetime.
Even with the hard work all of us have put in, the damage to the business itself was just too much for Legends to come back from. With that being said, it is with a heavy heart that we must announce that as of October 3, 2017 we will be closing our doors for the last time. As the team exits, the ownership has assured us that anything that is owed will be paid, including refunds, invoices, or otherwise. Please contact us by email at [email protected] so that all of those obligations can be met.
So many emotions go along with this decision, but our hope is that we can all look back at the past ten years and be grateful for the amazing relationships that have been made and the positive impact we have all had on each other. We did our very best to play like we want our name remembered. We will always remember all of you too.”
2012 Klein Collins Valedictorian Found Dead in San Francisco Bay
Spring, Texas – December 12th, 2017: A body discovered in the Bay of San Francisco, California has been identified as Chuchu Ma, 23-years-old, of Spring.
Just after 10:00 AM Thursday a bicyclist on a trail near San Fransisco Bay reported seeing a body in the water. The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office dive team was called in to help recover the body. A few hours after the discovery, Mountain View Police received a report of a missing person, whose description matched the body that was found. Investigators said Ma was half naked. It’s not clear if she was dumped into the bay, or if the body floated from a different location.
Ma moved out to San Fransisco to work for Google as a software developer.
In a statement issued by Google, a spokesperson wrote, “Chuchu was an excellent software engineer in our developer product team. We are devastated to learn of her passing, and our deepest condolences are with her family and friends.”
Investigators are labeling the case an unattended death and are awaiting results of an autopsy. Foul play has not yet been ruled out.
Ma was a 2016 graduate of the University of Texas-Austin, a National Merit Scholar and a 2012 valedictorian of Klein Collins High School in her hometown of Spring.

Preparations/ What you need to do:
- Make sure your family stays safe during winter weather by preparing with these tips:
- Monitor local forecasts throughout the day, especially before you start driving. Listen to local officials for road closures and safety information.
- Winter driving can be hazardous. One simple way to keep yourself and everyone on the road safe is to slow down. Remember, “Ice and snow, take it slow”.
- Remember the three feet rule. If you are using a space heater, place it on a level, hard surface and keep anything flammable at least three feet away – things such as paper, clothing, bedding, curtains or rugs.
- Remember the 4 P’s. People, pets, pipes, plants.
- Keep warm, stay inside if possible. If you need to go out, dress in layers and wear hats, gloves and an appropriate coat
- Keep your pets warm. If it is too cold for you outside, it is too cold for them. Make sure they have a warm, dry place to rest with plenty of food and water.
- Protect your pipes. Run water, even at a trickle, to help prevent your pipes from freezing.
- Protect your plants. Bring potted plants inside or store in garage near interior wall to provide extra warmth and protection from wind.
