Tough ending to great season

By Michael Cotton

 

 

They have been preparing for this one for two years and now the day has arrived for the Calvert Trojans. This was their first chance to avenge a heartbreaking loss in these same Semifinals, 78-74 to Throckmorton in 2014. That year as they had to do in this one, they would have to defeat number #1 ranked Richland Springs team to advance

Something has got to give

By  Michael Cotton

 

They are both undefeated at 12-0 and neither has really been tested since the playoffs began. Calvert has mercy ruled both opponents and Richland Springs has one mercy rule and one 35 point victory. All season long all roads have been leading up to this moment. They are perennial playoff teams and one is always in the others way toward a State Title.

Lady Eagles hoop dreams begin

By Michael Cotton

 

The Hearne girl’s basketball team is looking to make the same type of turn around on the basketball court this season that they did in volleyball. Coach Taplin is hoping they establish the same good work habits they displayed on the court this volleyball season. The program has been down a few seasons but because of anticipated good numbers turning out to play, it is expected that they will be a much-improved squad this basketball season.

A season to remember... working for next season

By Michael Cotton

 

After looking at these two teams on paper, the game looked to be an even matched one, despite the fact one team was a District Champion and other was a fourth seed. The Hearne Eagles looked every bit able to handle the Clifton Cubs even though Clifton won its district. Both teams came into the game averaging about the same in point differential with Hearne having a slight edge on offense while the. Cubs were a little better defensively. It looked like a game that would go down to the last minute before a winner could be determined and it turned out to be just that kind of game.

Torjans are going Panther hunting

By Michael Cotton

 

They have met only     on the field when it counted although they have played for a couple of season in a preseason scrimmage. That meeting was last season in the Bi-District round when the Trojans mercy ruled them 72-26. The Oakwood Panthers are familiar to the Trojans but in basketball not football. The Panthers are 4-6 on the season but have been a much-improved team in recent weeks. They played top rated Milford tough before bowing out by 19 points. They beat a good Mount Calm team and ran all over Trinidad this past week 62-14

Eagles... Playoff... OH YEAH!

By Michael Cotton

 

It has been four years since the Hearne Eagles last made a playoff appearance so you can bet the entire city is being taken over by playoff fever. Coach Daily has done a magnificent job of changing the culture and the attitudes of the Hearne football program. It is a complete turnaround from the state of the program the past three seasons.

Capping a perfect season

By Michael Cotton

 

The Calvert Trojans will hit the road this Friday and head to Prairie Lea to face the Indians as they attempt to put the cap on a perfect regular season at 10-0. The Indians were thought by many to be the lone challenger to Calvert’s dominance in this district but it’s not going to happen. Despite their lofty 7-2 record they are no more of a threat to Calvert than either Buckholts or Oglesby  .

A mercy whipping… maybe

By Michael Cotton

If you are looking for an entertaining high school football game to watch this Friday night, Calvert is not the place to be. The State ranked Trojans host the Buckholts Badgers in a district contest that will end with the mercy rule by halftime. The Badgers are 2-5 on the season and 0-1 in district play after losing to Prairie Lea last week.

Eagles are playoff bound

By Michael Cotton

The Hearne Eagles would like nothing more than to sit back and enjoy their recent success but looming on the horizon is one of their biggest challenges of the season. They have to travel to Leon to face the district leading Cougars (4-0) for first place in the district. Leon hasn’t overpowered anyone but they have kept winning. Only once in their four district wins did they win by more than 7 points.
