By Michael Cotton

Following their lead the younger Lady Eagles, Dabrina Adams, Kuenna Nelson, Ashley Griffin, Kabrina Mitchell, Zatoria DeMerritt, and Cedra Johnson, have played strong in the Lady Eagles’ matches early on.

All New in 2016-17

By Michael Cotton

They were a potent force in every sport they participated in during the 2015-16 season, but it will be a totally new situation for the Calvert Trojans when they take the field in 2016-17. They will be playing in a new district, with a lot of new players, and two new coaches. It will be a case of starting over for the Trojans who have gone 37-3 over the past three years in football, 55-5 in the last two basketball seasons, and advanced to the State in track and field in 2016.

Finishing with a bang

By Michael Cotton

They may have begun the season slowly in both volleyball and basketball but the Hearne Lady Eagles finished with a bang. They lacked the experience in both the previous sports to field a strong competitive team. With such a young group they were prone to mistakes that can be costly in both sports. However they all gained valuable playing time this year, which should lead to a stronger performance in the new school year. With the standards for the program in place all that is necessary is for the players to absorb the knowledge and learn the skills that will be essential to their development and their success.

The light at tunnel’s end

By Michael Cotton

It’s the 2nd year of Coach Baker’s plan to “Raise the Bar” on the level of expectations of the athletic programs in Hearne ISD. The changes he has made have been numerous and according to all who watch, the program seems to be right on schedule. When he took over, the program basically needed a total facelift from all corners. He has had to weed out those who were not present assets or lacked the initiative to become an asset.

Coming close

By Michael Cotton

To win the State Championship this past Saturday in Austin, the Calvert Trojans needed everything to go right for them. They needed to have good starts, good stick exchanges, they needed each runner to have their best race of the season, and probably most important they needed to stay healthy. Any injury could derail their attempt to bring the Championship back to Calvert. For Carnell Thompson, Coylin Grimes Jr., Fred Darnell, Jaquan Thompson, and Chris Luster this would be an opportunity to do something that hadn’t been done by the school since 1991.

A shot to win it all

By Michael Cotton

Entering this week’s State Track Meet, the one County school with an opportunity to win a State Championship on the track will be the Hearne Lady Eagles. The Lady Eagles have advanced more participants than anyone else in the area and have the most talent among those who did advance. Coach Lewis Edmonson has a strong group representing the Lady Eagles that could have been even stronger had a couple of other chips fell the Lady Eagles way.
