GC Football: Mildred slams Rio Vista, 61-8

Rio Vista — Will Burnham ran for four touchdowns, three in the second quarter, as Mildred routed Rio Vista, 61-8. Mildred (4-1, 2-0 in District 6-2A DII) erupted for 24 points in the second quarter to take a 40-0 lead at the break.

Mildred’s average starting field position in the first half was the Rio Vista 34, with five of the eight drives starting at the 30 or better. Mildred forced five turnovers and held Rio Vista (1-4, 0-2) to 81 total yards and three first downs. Rio Vista’s touchdown, a 9-yard Dylan Nelson to Gareth Crisp toss, came with the clock running with four and half minutes left after two bad snaps by Mildred’s second-team offense. The losses totaled 28 yards, and set up a 15-yard drive for Rio Vista after a fumble recovery.

Draylon Sterling had 135 yards on 13 carries for Mildred, and had touchdown runs of 7 and 16 yards to run his career total to 89. Mildred’s Devin O’Sullivan connected on field goals of 41 and 17 yards, and his seven extra points gave him 245 for his career, putting him 18 off the all-time career state mark set by Alabama kicker Cade Foster (Southlake Carroll, 263).

  • 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.
