Kiwanis Classic Girls: Kerens pulls away from Frost 57-29

Corsicana — For the Kerens LadyCats, it was more of the same in Friday's Championship Game of the Kiwanis Classic.

Another title. Another talented team put away.

Kerens led by only four at halftime, but roared out of the locker room to pull away from Frost for a 57-29 victory over the Lady Polar Bears in a battle of Top 10 teams at the Wolens Special Events Center.

The LadyCats (8-5) responded with Frost back at full strength in the second half -- Lady Polar Bears' freshman standout Jae Moore picked up four quick fouls in the first 10 minutes of the game.

Frost survived the second quarter without the inside presence of Moore, trailing only 21-17 at halftime. But Breanna Wells and Marqueshia dominated the paint, combining for 10 points as the LadyCats led 35-24 headed into the final quarter.

The Lady Polar Bears pulled within 37-29 on Kadee Bowling's 3-pointer early in the fourth quarter, but Wells made two more big shots to add to her total of 19 points for the night. And shooting guard Taylor Ames salted away the game with 11 of her 20 points in the last few minutes.

Ames scored eight points in the first quarter as Kerens broke out to a 14-7 lead. But Frost stayed with the LadyCats, even when Moore picked up her fourth foul with the score at 14-9 early in the second quarter.

Bowling, who had 16 points, made one of three 3-pointers for the game. Madison Revill and Dakota Lassetter also scored as Frost stayed within striking distance.

  • CHS SotfballSpence.jpg GC Softball: Playoff Time

    There  were some bumps on the road and slides in the standings and a few bruises along the way, but five Golden Circle teams have reached the softball playoffs that begin with first round games on Thursday.
    For Corsicana it was a wakeup call during the second half of district play that gave the Tigers the push they needed, and for Mildred it was the culmination of yet another splendid season as the Lady Eagles made the playoffs for the fifth straight season. Blooming Grove is back again, a regular in post season play with a chance to make a run, and Hubbard begins its quest to get to the state tournament and Austin with a one-game playoff on Thursday against Itasca in Italy.

  • NVSBAhearn.jpg Navarro Softball: Bulldogs split with Kilgore, win final home game

    Kristen Ahearn was mad, steaming.
    Even her peanut butter and jelly sandwich that she ate between the doubleheader games didn't taste good. Nothing fit. Nothing was in sync. Nothing felt right or even tasted right.
    Then Ahearn found the cure.
    Simple enough: Just go out and blast a three-run homer.
    That's the short version of what happened Tuesday at Navarro College, where Ahearn's three-run bomb ignited the Bulldogs in the second game against Kilgore and Navarro went on to win 8-5 to close out its regular season with a bang and a smile from Ahearn.

    The wait is over.
    And it came just in time for Brett Anderson, who left it all on the mound Tuesday night at Kerens, where he pitched a masterpiece to lead the Bobcats over Cayuga, 5-1, and help the program win its first baseball district title since 1981.
    “I've got no gas left. I'm out,'' said Anderson, a senior lefty who stopped Cayuga cold, holding the three-time defending district champs to just three singles while striking out 14.
