Powder Puff Fundraiser in Franklin

It was a game to remember this past Thursday, May 22 as the Franklin High School girls took Hedrick Field for a Project Graduation Powder Puff football game. The senior and sophomore girls claimed a victory over the junior and freshman girls in this fun filled fundraiser. The girls team was supported and cheered for by the Lions very own football team, dressed in full cheerleading attire. A Powder Puff Queen competition was held and MacKenzie Anderson escorted the crowned Powder Puff Queen Joe Riley in this backwards event. All proceeds of Project Graduation’s football game from both admission and the bake sale went towards the David Knight Scholarship Fund; the game raised over $1,600.00 for this scholarship program.

Third annual “Kick Butts Day” kickball game held to promote tobacco awareness

Junior high and high school students in Hearne gathered at the district’s softball field on the afternoon of May 15 to watch more than just a fun game of kickball. In addition to the teachers vs. students’ kickball competition, employees of the Brazos Valley Council on Alcohol and Substance Abuse (BVCASA) were on site in order to educate audience members about the dangers and consequences of tobacco use.

“We thought, what better way to celebrate national ‘Kick Butts Day’ than a kickball game,” said Ronda Jackson, Community Coalition Coordinator for BVCASA. “It was great to see all these students having so much fun while also learning about the harmful effects of smoking.”

Michael Cotton | Robertson County News Tiffany Williams competed in state track and field for the Lady Trojans, winning multiple medals.

If the Lady Lions were the most successful girls program in the County, it would be hard to argue that the Calvert Lady Trojans were next. Though they failed to make the playoffs in Volleyball, they still managed to win more games and become more competitive than the program has ever been.  The addition of senior Raquel Wortham from Bremond gave the team a true volleyball player. That success led into one of the most outstanding basketball seasons in girl’s basketball history in the County. Led by, what I called the “Iron Five” (they averaged more than 30 minutes a game each), Diesha Clark, Jaylonn Walker, Tiffany Williams, Lakeydra Mosley, and Raquel Wortham, they pushed the sport to a new level of performance not seen before. They finished the season at 30-2, suffering losses only to 2A Franklin, which made the State Semi-finals in Class 2A and in the Championship game to Nazareth. It was the most wins in school history and the school’s first Finals appearance.

Gold medals and state records

The week began for Tiffany Williams and Lakeydra Mosley as they spent Friday night at their last prom as high school.  On Tuesday, they received their honors and accolades for the 2013-14 school year at the Calvert Annual Athletic Banquet. This before packing their bags and returning to Austin for a chance to defend several individual titles and try to win that illusive State Title. They lost the 2013 State Championship by 2 points and now they are back to try to avenge that loss and improve on their performance.
