CHS Girls Hoops: Lady Tigers lose final home game 51-47

Corsicana — The Lady Tigers came into this season as a young team with big playoff aspirations.

Those hopes will have to wait another year.

Corsicana lost to Whitehouse 51-47 on senior night at Tiger Gym, as four players played in their final home game.

They were almost a part of a miracle comeback. The Lady Tigers scored the final 13 points of the game, but missed seven free throws in the fourth quarter that held up a great rally.

Calae Wilson and Alexis Baston combined for 10 points in the fourth quarter. Baston led the Lady Tigers with nine points while Erica Melendez had eight points.

Corsicana trailed 27-17 at halftime and by as many as 18 points in the fourth quarter.

  • GC Baseball: Kerens' Anderson makes TSWA/Collin Street Bakery all-state team at four positions

    Call it the rarest of rares, at least as far as all-state teams go. Brett Anderson of Kerens shows up on the Texas Sports Writers Association/Collin Street Bakery all-state team not one, not two, not three, but four times. Dawson's Lane Dotson was a second-team outfielder, and the Bulldogs' Trent Underwood made the third-team as a pitcher, and also garnered an honorable mention nod at first base. Kerens outfielder Brent Warren was also an honorable mention pick.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan: All-star games and all-star shame

    If there is anything more useless than a political promise, it’s an all-star game. I don’t care what sport at what level. Any all-star game is simply an exhibition, a reward for being among the best (maybe). Any one of them is about as relevant as the IRS’s “dog ate my homework” excuse for losing emails.
