Robertson County-wide volleyball report

All five local area high school volleyball teams participated in tournaments around the area this past weekend. It was a chance for action, what most teams need this time of year as they prepare for what will be district. This week the volleyball polls were out and surprisingly no teams from the area are ranked.  I for one thought Iola and Franklin would have made the list.

Bremond Lady Tigers score District Title

The Lady Tigers had an amazing season, and this Tiger at bat is showing why – skill.

 

The Lady Tigers road trip to Austin was cut short by the Shiner Comanche in their matchup for area champs. The two teams met May 2 for their first game and a 7-6 win against the Comanche. The action on May 3 and 4 turned chill with losses both days by the Lady Tigers.

The Lady Tigers have had a strong season. They finish off with a 6-3 non-league season and 4-0 in league play. Coaches Charlotte Revill, Jordan Revill and James Rowe are quite proud of the Lady Tiger’s accomplishments this year.

Calvert’s Trojan Horse

Tiffany Williams and Lakendra Mosley will be representing the Trojans at State.

When you think of a "Trojan" horse, she definitely wouldn't be the one who came to mind. Standing all of 5'4" and weighing in at 110 pounds, she 's not exactly an imposing figure. But looks can be deceiving sometimes, meet Calvert’s Trojan Horse, Tiffany Williams. The Junior at Calvert was All-District in Volleyball, and Basketball. She was second Team All-Regional in Basketball, but these are not her best sport.

Her best sport is Track and her specialty is the 400-meter run. She ran 58 second 400's as a seventh and eighth grader. She went to the Nationals in summer track, finishing fourth overall. A serious knee injury in basketball sidelined her during her freshman year and she missed the track season.

Re’Jana Ellison soars into State track championships

Coach Smith cheers Re’Jana on as she tries to break her personal record.

Laura Chesner Staff Writer [email protected] Re”jana Ellison will be going to the UIL State Track and Field championships in Austin this year. This will be the fourth year she has gone, a feat never before accomplished in Hearne Eagles history. As a freshman, Ellison placed third in the 100 and 200-meter dash. Her sophomore year, she repeated her performance in the 100 and 200 and also picked up fourth in long jump. Last year she placed third in the 200-meter, fifth in the long jump and sixth in the 100-meter. You could say that she has accumulated some heavy medal over the years. This year, Ellison has already qualified to compete in the 100-meter, 200-meter and the 400-meter dash. Her qualifying times are record-setting for Hearne High School and her coaches expect her to come home with at least one medal. “She’s been running non-stop and practicing hard,” said Coach Clinton Smith.
