GC Football: Frost stays hot, runs by Itasca, 49-20

Itasca — The Frost Polar Bears scored in all areas of the game to defeat Itasca 49-20.  The Polar Bears defense scored first as DB Robert Worley scooped up an Itasca fumble and returned it 38-yards for a touchdown early in the first quarter.  The Special Teams squad scored early in the second quarter as Kobe Hailey picked up a bobbled kickoff return, weaved down the left hash,  picked up blocks, veered to his right, and zipped down the right sideline 89-yards for a touchdown.  The Bears offense didn't score until 2:19 left in the second quarter when Zach Terry scrambled 20-yards behind a Woody Woods block.

The Bears only ran four offensive plays in the first quarter, but controlled the clock in the second half.  The Bears put the game away behind a balanced running attack and three touchdown runs - two by Woods and one by Hailey.  

Woods also added a safety with 6:34 in the fourth quarter.  Frost fumbled at the Itasca four yard- line.  On third down and twelve from the Itasca two yard-line, Woods shot through the Wampus Cat line and sacked QB Brandon Farquhar in the end zone.

  • 4-16-14NVSBMoerbe slides.jpg Navarro Softball: Bulldogs get ranked, split with Paris

    Minutes after Navarro split a doubleheader with Paris on Wednesday, Navarro softball Coach Jessica Karenke was told her Bulldogs had just been nationally ranked and are now No. 16 in the NJCAA national softball poll.
    She had no idea.
    And she didn't care.
    Karenke is worried about what happens on the diamond, and she had some concerns after Navarro made four errors in the second game that opened the door for Paris to pull off a 7-2 win after the Bulldogs and Ciara Luna controlled the first game with a 4-1 win.

    Lindale has been poison to Corsicana all year.
    The Eagles won a bizarre game in Lindale to keep the Tigers out of the football playoffs and ruined the boys basketball season with two gut-wrenching wins in the final week of the season.
    They did it again Tuesday, beating the Tigers 4-0 at Price Field to take over second place in the District 16-4A race.
    Lindale (6-2) had one big inning to hand Corsicana (5-3) its second loss in a row.

  • I4-15-14Kellysigns.jpg GC Volleyball: Kerens' Kelly signs with Paris Junior College

    She prayed about it. She lost sleep about it. And she prayed about it some more.
    That's just a glimpse of what Marqueshia Kelly went through before deciding to turn down a half dozen basketball scholarships and accept a scholarship to play volleyball at Paris Junior College.
    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.
