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.

  • 4-115-14CHSBBMinniear.jpg CHS Baseball: Lindale haunts Tigers again with critical 4-0 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.

    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.
