Ready, set, and hoop

By Michael Cotton
 
After having to cancel several earlier games because of conflicts in scheduling with the volleyball and football playoffs, Trojan guard Jaylonn Walker said it felt good to get back on the court playing her favorite game. Walker was fresh off being named 1st Team All- District in Volleyball for the 2015 season. It was a season that saw the Lady Trojans make the playoffs and capture a Bi-District title before bowing out in the Area Round.

Lady Eagles drop one to Centerville

By Bobby Batson
 
Centerville’s Lady Tigers didn’t let the cold weather affect their shooting as they jumped on the hosting Lady Eagles in the first quarter and cruised to a 51-33 victory this past Saturday morning. (Originally scheduled for Friday night, the game was moved because Centerville’s football team had a playoff game.) The Lady Tigers were hot from the outside, hitting five three-pointers during the game to build and hold on to their early lead.

A battle of unbeatens; somethings gonna give

By Michel Cotton

They have met at this fork in the road on several occasions and the games have been drama filled to say the least. The Trojans own the victory in the last battle between the two teams, a frantic 22-20 win, coming from behind to take the lead and win in a dramatic finish.

A quality opponent; maybe

By Michael Cotton

It has been a month since the Calvert Trojans played a game against a team they weren’t expected to mercy rule. Since Crowell, the Trojans have met the likes of Buckholts 62-0, High Island 83-38, and Prairie Lea 84-0. Not much if you asked me in the form of real competition for the team.

Showing mercy; in the rain

By Michael Cotton
 
It’s week eleven of the High School Football season and the Calvert Trojans are preparing for their final curtain call before the playoffs begin. They have already wrapped up the district Championship and are looking to finish the regular season unbeaten.  This week’s tune up game will be against the Prairie Lea Indians at home on “Seniors Night”. The Indians have had a rough season in 2015 especially in the district, with losses to Buckholts and High Island. They have been mercy ruled in both games and in all but one of their other losses this season.
