JV Boys Rule District

by Michael Cotton
 
The Hearne Eagles decided because of the youth of their male athletic program to allow those youngsters an opportunity to experience success. Instead of running them overmatched against varsity competition they ran against their peers on the Junior Varsity. The Junior Varsity boys stole the show and ran away from the competition to claim the District Title in track. The young Eagles scored points in nearly every event on the track amassing 134 points to claim the Championship ahead of Rockdale and Cameron. It was a great end of the season accomplishment for all the young men involved.

Speed to burn

By Michael Cotton
 
The Hearne Lady Eagles Track team has demonstrated thus far that they are a team with speed to burn. In their ventures onto the track this season they have put together some impressive outings. Coach Lewis Edmonson’s group has steadily improved with each meet they have participated in. This past week they took part in the Hornet Relays in Caldwell and came away with some impressive performances. The 4x100 meter relay team of Zariah Mercer, Kinnicka Bundage, Zharia Villaponda, and Teresa Wiltz ran a season’s best 49.88 seconds, which ranks as one of the best times in the Region this season in that event.

By MICHAEL COTTON

One Eagle in particular has been a dominant force in his weight class, winning the event at several different Powerlifting Meets.

Coach to be inducted

by Michael Cotton
 
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the name Lewis Edmonson, don’t feel like you are alone. I was quite unaware of the resume the young man possesses. He was a dominant athlete on the track at Prairie View A&M University during his college days. So much so, that he holds the school record in the 110 meter high hurdles at 13.53 and ran a leg on the record holding 4x100 meter relay team that ran 39.4 in 2002-2003. Both are records that still stand at the school.
