Finishing

By Michael Cotton

 

The Hearne Lady Eagles are trying to finish the season out by learning how to handle consistency. They have made tremendous strides toward in improving their overall program during the 2016 volleyball season. They have continued to play with more enthusiasm and hustle as they have struggled to find wins. Coach Montgomery feels she has the team heading in the right direction. Utilizing some strong play from a core group of players she has seen them slowly come together on the court and has seen their team play become more competitive each time they have hit the court.

Eagles prepare to muzzle bulldogs

By Michael Cotton

 

After a less than stellar performance last week against New Waverly, the Hearne Eagles still find themselves in reach of their off season goal of playing in the post season. They are 2-1 in district play and right in thick of the race. This week they return home to face the Marlin Bulldogs. Marlin is winless in district play but has played better lately. The Bulldogs have been decent on offense but their defense has been porous all season. They are on a 4 game losing streak and nothing would please the Eagles more than to make that five in a row.

By Michael Cotton

When Eagles meet... feathers will fly

By Michael Cotton

It has been a long time since the words Hearne Eagles and leading the district have been put together in the same sentence but that is exactly what is occurring at the moment. The Eagles have put together their second 2 game winning streak of the season and are perched neatly atop District 12-3A Division II. For the faithful who have followed the program all along it’s nice to be cheering for a first place team.

Trojans run wild

By Michael Cotton

After getting off to a 6-0 start and advancing to #3 in the State polls, the Calvert Trojans have displayed a propensity to get the job done no matter the obstacles. This week they return home after road games the past two weeks in Waco and Chester. The opponent this week will be the Harvest Christian Saints. The Saints record stands at 2-4 this season and their fortunes won’t improve much this weekend when they travel to Calvert. They have scored 210 points in the first 5 games and allowed 213.

Battle for first place

By Michael Cotton

You wouldn’t have thought it at the beginning of the football season, that in week eight the Hearne Eagles and the New Waverly Bulldogs would be playing each other for the outright lead in their district this Friday. The Bulldogs have played sporadically but have been helped by a schedule in their favor. They have defeated Buffalo and Anderson-Shiro in their first two games of the district season.

Trojans show mercy

By Michael Cotton

 

The Chester Yellow Jackets are in for a very rude guest arriving when the Calvert Trojans come marching into town. Chester has never played the Trojans before this meeting and has begun the season by getting mercy ruled by every team they have played thus far except one. They were expected to be decent on offense with four seniors returning but have only managed to score 25 points this season. Quarterback/ Spread back Cord Neal leads the offense along with receivers Clay Thompson and Kenneth Henson but they have been unable to establish any form of consistent play all year.
