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.

    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

    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.
