    They did it again Tuesday, beating the Tigers 4-0 at Price Field to take over second place in the District 16-4A race.

    The journey might have been a little sleepless, but in the end it wasn't that tough for Kelly, who is a multi-sport star at Kerens.
    “I followed my heart,'' she said on Tuesday just moments after signing a letter-of-intent to play volleyball at Paris in front of family, coaches and friends.
