End of a magnificent run

There’s an old saying that goes “it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.” That saying holds a lot of truth when you look at the Calvert basketball team. No starter is taller than 5’10” and only 1 of them is that tall. The
rest are 5’7”, 5’8”, 5’9”, and 5’9”.

Swinging a big stick

The Hearne Eagle baseball team has come out swinging this season and the results have been much to Coach Jeff Ally’s liking. The Eagles are in their 2nd year of play under Coach Ally and after a year on the job he is starting to see some of
the rewards for the effort he has invested in the program.

Looking to win another

They have passed this way before, so it’s not unfamiliar territory that the Calvert Trojans will find themselves. Being in the 
Region tournament is nothing new to the Trojans. They have played at Berger Center in Austin before, Coach Wortham has taken teams to this level before, so nothing is new except the faces on the team

Trojans trap Panthers in Goat country

When they run out of the dressing room onto the court, most people keep looking for their players with some size to come out. That doesn’t happen because they don’t have but a little size and most of it is wrapped up in two players, 6’2” Fred Darnell and 6’ JaMikel Fletcher. Everyone else could run underneath Fred’s outstretched arms and never bump their
heads.

Lady Trojans out after Area 42-38

If last year was a dream season, then the 2014-15 season has to go down as more of a nightmare, in the eyes of the
Calvert Lady Trojans. Their season was not suppose to end this way with a quick defeat in the Area Round, but there the
scoreboard read, Jonesboro 42 Calvert 38. It was a case of poor timing for the Lady Trojans.

Give them a goal and Trojans will shine

For three members of this year’s basketball team for the Calvert Trojans, it is a familiar place they find themselves. For four consecutive years they have been district champions and made playoff runs. They were all freshmen but a part of that 2012 team that won it all. Senior guard Corey Chopp, wing JaMikel Fletcher and post William Golden.

Mustangs leave hoof prints down Bulldog backs

by Michael Cotton
 
It is about as rare as a solar eclipse or a man landing on the moon. They are things that don’t happen very often or they are rare occurrences. That’s what happened this week in local basketball, a rare occurrence; the Mumford Mustangs lost a district basketball game. I had to double check for myself to be sure it really happened and it did.
