4-19-13 Roundup





From Staff Reports


The Lady Bears of Frost needed just three innings to dispose of Covington, 15-0, in the regular season finale Friday. An eight-run first inning fueled the route.

Dakota Lassetter, Kaycee Bowling, Jae Moore and Madison Revill all had two hits each for the Lady Bears, who finished the season 9-3 in District 12-1A, and 11-3 overall after an extended basketball season. Jae Moore earned her 11th win, allowing a hit and striking out six.

Frost finished in a second-place tie in 12-1A, and will face Hubbard at a site and time to be determined in bi-district.

Mildred 9, Blooming Grove 1: It was senior night in Mildred as the Lady Eagles wrapped up an undefeated district campaign. Mildred's Olivia Farmer did not disappoint, the senior scored the game's first run in the bottom of the first inning on an RBI single by Joanna Tapley. She drove in the go-ahead run in the bottom of the third inning on a sacrifice fly to rightfield and smashed a two run homerun over the right-centerfield fence in her last at-bat for the final runs of the game in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Savannah Pritchett had two hits and an RBI and Callie Bland had a hit and two RBIs for the Lady Eagles. Aubyn Turner and Maddie Moore each added a hit for Mildred.

Steely Southard and Lauren Miller each had hits for Blooming Grove. Hannah Chaffin scored the Lady Lions only run in the second inning on a throwing error.

Aubyn Turner picked up the win on the mound for the Lady Eagles. She gave up only two hits and struck out eight in her five innings of work. Falcon Thompson took the loss for the Lady Lions. She gave up seven hits and struck out six.

    The Cowboys started training camp the same week that Robert Newhouse died.
    In a way, that’s very unfortunate for Jerry. Thinking back to the “Human Bowling Ball” and the teams of that era might lead to the inevitable comparisons to today’s product on the field.

    His father was a head coach for years at Pecos High and his brother-in-law is the head football coach at DeSoto, but Lawrence Williams Jr., a man who loves coaching football, never had any ideas about being the head man.
    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''

    Kaylana Dickson got the name Bebop on her way to winning a national title in gymnastics this summer, and boy did it catch fire.
    Kaylana, a Corsicana native, picked up fans from all over the country and many bought Bebop T-shirts to help pay her expenses to Spokane, Wa., where she won the 8-and-under title in the double-mini trampoline event and finished third in floor exercise.
    More than 100 of her friends, family members and fans showed up at the Corsicana YMCA on Saturday to celebrate the national title and be on hand for a drawing for an autographed New Orleans Saints football jersey from David Hawthorne, a star defensive lineman for the Saints and Kaylana's uncle

  • GC Baseball: Kerens' Anderson makes TSWA/Collin Street Bakery all-state team at four positions

    Call it the rarest of rares, at least as far as all-state teams go. Brett Anderson of Kerens shows up on the Texas Sports Writers Association/Collin Street Bakery all-state team not one, not two, not three, but four times. Dawson's Lane Dotson was a second-team outfielder, and the Bulldogs' Trent Underwood made the third-team as a pitcher, and also garnered an honorable mention nod at first base. Kerens outfielder Brent Warren was also an honorable mention pick.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan: All-star games and all-star shame

    If there is anything more useless than a political promise, it’s an all-star game. I don’t care what sport at what level. Any all-star game is simply an exhibition, a reward for being among the best (maybe). Any one of them is about as relevant as the IRS’s “dog ate my homework” excuse for losing emails.
