Preparing for the battle

by Michael Cotton
 
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.

Off and running

by Michael Cotton
 
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.

Getting closer

by Michael Cotton
 
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.

Running out of time

It had been 12 years since the Trojans pulled off the miracle that brought them a Football State Championship in 2002.
Now they were looking to get back again and this time it’s in the spotlight that is “Jerry’s World”, AT&T Stadium in Arlington Texas, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Familiar Foes at it again

by Michael Cotton
 
It is getting to be like an old love song, having a familiar ring to it. They keep meeting up in the playoffs like it is their destiny. Five times before they have met before, with the last time being in the 2013 playoff, where the Trojans claimed their only win in the series 43-28. The Coyotes of Richland Springs were young a year ago and so were the Trojans, so this year’s match up would look to play out as a real barn burner. The Coyotes are an offensive powerhouse averaging over 66 points per game.

Lady Trojans reload for 2014

by Michael Cotton
 
They have picked up where they left off last season, only this time they look to have more depth than they had last season. After a year in which they used five players for most of the minutes, the 2014 version of Lady Trojans basketball features a team that utilizes all 12 players on the squad. In their opener against Olglesby the Lady Trojans had 10 different players score points. Starters Diesha Clark had 12, Jaylonn Walker 23, Alyssa Brooks 9, Keosha Eddington 3, and Mykel Castilleja 10. Off the bench Nakevia Drones scored 9 points, Essence Gilmore 5, Natori Thomas 5, Ijionea Cephas 3, and Tinece Williams 3, in the 82-19 win.
