GC Girls Bi-District playoffs: Lady Eagles fall to Franklin 83-56

Wortham loses to Harleton 49-46

BUFFALO — The Mildred Lady Eagles gave the 12th-ranked Franklin Lady Lions all they could handle in the first half of their Region III-2A bi-district playoff game.

Mildred trailed 38-35 at the half but Franklin was able to pull away midway through the third quarter and caught fire from the three point line in the fourth quarter.

Mildred ended the year with an 18-11 record and their first playoff appearance since the 04-05 season.

Savannah Pritchett led the Eagles with 16 points and Maddie Moore added 15 points. Senior Olivia Farmer chipped in 8 points to finish out her final season for the Lady Eagles.

Farmer, a 4-year starter for the Eagles, scored 446 points and had 128 steals on the season. Senior Lauren Glidewell also played in her final game for the Lady Eagles.

Wortham comes close: Kierra Busby scored 17 points but Wortham couldn’t hold a fourth-quarter lead on Harleton in a Region III-1A DI bi-district playoff game on Tuesday night in Rusk.

Wortham (19-16) led 38-32 after three quarters, but Kaylee Knowlton and Savannah Jackson led a comeback for Harelton.

Kamarie Freeman had 11 points and Sara Sessions added 10 points for Wortham.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan: ESPN was wrong in suspending Smith

    I won’t be watching ESPN this coming week. For a network that has been made into an empire by covering baseballs, footballs, basketballs, golf balls, soccer balls, tennis balls (I’ve never watched hockey, but I understand they have no balls), this network is much like hockey. They lack the things they are covering.

    It's here.
    When the sun comes up Monday morning it's not just the dawn of a new day, but the dawn of a new season — it's the beginning of two-a-days.
    Eight of the nine schools in the Golden Circle will begin football practice Monday while Corsicana waits until Aug. 8 to start. The Tigers begin a week later because they held spring practice.
    For last year's playoff teams such as Mildred, Blooming Grove, Kerens, Frost and Hubbard Monday begins a road back to the postseason and for everyone else its the start of a new march. For everyone, it's the most optimistic day of the year.

  • I7-31-14 Mayper.jpg Navarro Football: Nothing changes for success-minded Bulldogs

    It didn't take long for Navarro football Coach Brian Mayper  to deliver his preseason message at the SWJCFC Media Day Thursday.
    “No surprises at Navarro,'' said Mayper, the first of the seven conference coaches to speak to the media. “We're running the same stuff. You guys know we're going to run the ball. And thank God, we're not changes defenses again this year.''
    Mayper's real message is that life at Navarro is all about winning, and all about a culture that expects to win.
    “We expect to win them all. If you don't, you're in the wrong business,'' Mayper said. “I think our kids expect it, too.''
