High School Basketball: Corsicana opens Janie Biltz Classic

Lady Tigers can’t catch Terrell; beat Dallas Christian

Corsicana — The youth of the Lady Tigers showed up again Thursday morning in a 51-47 loss to Terrelll in their opening game of the Janie Biltz Classic at Tiger Gym.

Turnovers, poor shooting and an inability to get back on defense and stop transition layups cost the Lady Tigers in a game they mostly trailed throughout the second half.

Corsicana (1-2) led 27-25 at halftime. But Terrell surged out to a 37-33 before Destini Lunsford and Calae Wilson combined on three straight hoops to give Corsicana a 39-37 lead with 6:48 left in the game.

Terrell immediately went on a 9-2 run to take back control of the game. The Lady Tigers closed the gap to 46-42 on a free throw by Briana Biltz with 2:26 left, but Terrell went on another mini 5-0 run to clinch the victory.

Corsicana won 50-45 over Dallas Chrsitian in the Lady Tigers’ second tournament game of the day. Erica Melendez had 18 points and Calae Wilson added 14 points.

  • GC Baseball/Softball: Mildred names Zamzow new baseball coach; AD Chambliess to coach softball again

         The Mildred Eagles didn’t have to go far to find a new baseball coach to replace Aaron Tidwell, who left the diamond to take the job as the principal of Mildred High School.
        On Saturday, Mildred named softball coach Brett Zamzow its new baseball coach as Zamzow, who was Tidwell's assistant for five years,  moves back to baseball after spending a year coaching softball.
        To complete the move Mildred Athletic Director Billy Dan Chambliess will take over the softball team. Chambliess, who is the head football coach, spent fours years coaching softball before becoming the school’s AD last year. All four of his teams won district titles.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan; Remembering House and a better era

    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.

    Call it the rarest of rares, at least as far as all-state teams go.
