They are right where they expected to be at this time of year, in 1st place in the District. After trouncing Kennard in their opener, the Calvert Trojans are busy learning to survive without their second leading scorer, guard Xavier Laury.
The Hearne Lady Eagles are in the midst of district competition and are fighting through some tough times. They are 0-5 in the race and will have a pair of tough games coming up this week to try and secure a win.
The Hearne Eagles have had an up and down season thus far in 2014-15. They’ve had some great victories and have suffered some stinging losses. As the Eagles’ staff works to build the program’s foundation, the team has shown nights of consistent play. Wins at Fayetteville by 15 and at Rosebud-Lott by 16 shows the Eagles know how to play. It has been a season of close calls for the Eagles in their quest to improve.
Their record isn’t as gaudy as it was this time last season, but the Calvert Lady Trojans are in the same spot they were this time last season. With the 49-48 victory over Kennard, the Lady Trojans are on top of the District race at 2-0 going into the New Year. The wins haven’t come easy for this group but their perseverance and fortitude down the stretches of many games has shown they will be a tough opponent for everyone in the district in 2014- 15. Calvert continues to get steady scoring from the duo of Jaylonn Walker and Diesha Clark and the game against kennard was no exception.
After playing the defending State Champion Mumford Mustangs to a one possession game at the end of the 1st quarter, the Hearne Eagles are proving they are getting closer to that foundation that Coach Daily wants to establish. It was just 18-15 Mumford and the Eagles had played extremely well out the gate. To be even more exact, for three quarters the 1st, 3rd and 4th the Eagles outscored the Mustangs 50- 47.
After a rough outing at the 3A Fairfield tournament, going 1-3 against 3A, 4A, and 5A competition, the Calvert Lady Trojans found themselves in a position they hadn’t been in for three full seasons, looking at a 3 game losing streak.
