Lady Lions are district champs

The Lion families have suffered a tragic loss. The sudden passing of Coach David Knight this week has the entire Lion community in mourning. It’s the third time this season that a close member of the athletic family has been lost.  

The staff at the Robertson County News offers our sympathy and our prayers go out to Coach Knight’s family and the Franklin Lion family. Know that with God there is a plan for all that happens in life, so stay strong.

With a week to prepare for the Area Meet, the Franklin Lady Lions will use the time to hone their skills.  If they hope to advance in next week’s Region meet, they know their times will have to improve from their present state.  The Lady Lions will carry enough into the meet to make a legitimate run at the region Championship.

Tigers take district track

The Bremond Tigers roared loudest at the District Track Meet, coming away with a 12-point win and the Championship.  The Tigers used a 2nd place finish in all three relay events and 1st place victories by Joe Williams in the 100 meters in 11.03 and RayAndre Browning in the 800 meters, who ran 2:08.49 to clam the win.  In addition to those two winners on the track, the Tigers picked up key points from Evan Sergent’s 2nd place in the 110 hurdles and from James Jones’ 3rd place and Josh Anderson’s 6th place finish in the 200 meters. Dawagiek Scaggs finished 4th in the 400 meters and Hunter Stuard came in 4th and Evan Sargent 6th in the 300 hurdles.

Williams pulls amazing triple at district meet

It was a tough week leading up to the District Track Meet in Caldwell on Wednesday for the Calvert Lady Trojans. Injuries and defections left them searching to put together a supporting cast for their two defending State Champions. Raquel Wortham and Tinece Williams both suffered knee injuries that could sideline them for the District Meet. Wortham appears close to returning but time will tell how effective she will be. The recent injury to Tinece Williams is more significant, as it puts the 4 x 100 meter relay and the 4 x 400 meter relay in jeopardy.  The Lady Trojans will regroup on Wednesday and begin their run toward a State Title.

Lions win title

If the District Meet turns out to be anything similar to the Franklin Lion Relays of two weeks ago, then The Franklin Lions should rule this district.  At their meet, the Lions hosted district foes Anderson-Shiro, Hearne, Centerville and New Waverly.  After winning the meet quite handily, the Lions look to place their stamp on this year’s race, with a victory.  The Lions are favored to take the crown based on their performances thus far this track season.

District champion tennis team with softball close behind

Fresh off their championship in their own Franklin Lions Relays on last week, the Lady Lions Track Team, like everyone else around the State, took a test break.  STAAR testing took precedence over any athletic events.

That didn’t stop the Lady Lions from claiming another District Championship.  The Lady Lions Tennis Team won the District Championship this past weekend and advances to the Regionals at the Murphy Center at Tyler Junior College.  Remember Carrie Casey, well she took time off from Track to win the Singles Title, and Kaitlyn Mitchell and Alondra Torres combined to finish 2nd in the Doubles Championship. Also, one more Lady Lion advanced as Kaitlyn McCulley combined with fellow Lion Seth Kissinger, to finish 2nd in the Mixed Doubles Title.  Congratulations to the Lady Lions for a fantastic year, that just keeps getting better.

Not quite, but still a great year

It has been a long journey for the Calvert Lady Trojans. They have come back from the dead four years ago to State Semi-Finalist in 2014.  For Tiffany Williams and Lakeydra Mosley, the journey has been a longer one, but the payoff this year has been great.  Both young ladies as freshmen were part of a Calvert team, 4 years ago that won only 2 games all season. Williams would tear her ACL and Mosley would suffer through a 2-16 campaign without her best friend and running buddy. Their sophomore year, they were joined by freshman Diesha Clark, and the team began to come together. They won 18 games that year, finished 3rd in District, and won a playoff game. Their junior year they were joined by freshman Jaylonn Walker, and they got better still, finishing 2nd in district, winning 24 games and again winning a playoff game but losing out in the Area round. This year that foursome has brought the energy and the desire that Championship teams are made of.

It was a season to be remembered

The Franklin Lady Lions have had a blessed season. They survived successive scares at the Region Tournament and advanced to what is hallowed ground for Lion fans.  No Franklin Team has advanced to the State ever in history. Defeating first Nacogdoches Central Heights by 3 on Friday 72-69 and then coming back in the Region Finals to defeat Crawford 66-63, the Lady Lions became a part of school history. For Coach Shelton and the Lady Lions the wins were a testament to the diligence and hard work they have put into the program. The Lady Lions style is quite different from the usual girls basketball game.  They force tempo to the maximum with their pressure defense and their barrage of quick shots.  The Lady Lions have been known to shoot as many as 50, 3-point shots in one game and create as many as 45 turnovers with their pressure.

Big week for the Lady Tigers

After losing a district match up against Mart last Friday, the Bremond Lady Tigers traveled to Chilton on Tuesday to play the Lady Pirates. Standing at 1-2 in district, the Lady Tigers are in the thick of the race for a playoff spot. They trail Chilton 2-1, Mart 2-1, and tied with Bosqueville 1-2, with all 4 teams chasing unbeaten Axtell at 3-0.
As they have done most of the season the Lady Tigers started slowly against the Lady Pirates and searched for some rhythm as the game played out.  Chilton capitalized on being at home to hold off the Lady Tigers in a key district match up. Overall it was a rough night for Rhyniesccea Paul, Taylor Anderson, McKenzie Curry, Alyssa Bienski, and Bailey Settle, as they tried to keep the Lady Tigers close.  In the end the Lady Pirates prevailed and dropped to 1-3 with district leading Axtell coming to town.
