Year in Review — A look back at Parker County sports in 2011



After dropping the opening game of the match, 14-25, the Ladycats came roaring back to take the next two games in close matches, 25-20, 25-20. Losing some all-important momentum in the fourth stanza, Aledo was forced to the fifth-game tiebreaker after taking a loss in Game 4, 17-25. 

The Ladycats failed to regain the momentum it had built up in the second and third games, as Randall went on a run to finish the last game, 9-15.

Nov. 15 - The Weatherford Academy of Korean Martial Arts had members of the white team participate in international taekwondo championships, bringing home 12 gold medals, six silver medals and five bronze medals.

Nov. 18 - Weatherford senior Keegan Moore who took first place at the Mansfield Shootout. Also competing for Weatherford were Tina Setti, Katy Swan and Allison Cox. Moore carded a 77 to top the overall field at the tourney.

Nov. 25 - With each step, the Weatherford College softball program made history, with an entry being the conclusion of its first fall schedule.

“It felt really good to be able to finally get on the field,” said head coach Dottie Cupp. “All the girls were super excited to start practice. It’s always exciting to start practice in the fall, but it is really special being part of the beginning of this program.”

Nov. 27 - Aledo running back Johnathan Gray broke loose for touchdown runs of 75 and 55 yards in the second quarter, at Grande Communications Stadium in Midland. The Bearcats earned another match with Stephenville, beating Canyon Randall, 42-14.



Dec. 4 - The Aledo defense was much more intimidating to Stephenville than the rainy weather at Don Floyd Stadium in Midlothian. The Bearcats kept the Jackets’ running back Aiavion Edwards in check throughout the contest, resulting in a 33-0 Class 4A, Div.II, Region I championship for Aledo.

Dec. 6 - Aledo senior running back Johnathan Gray collected another honor, this time as the Gatorade® Texas Football Player of the Year. Gray’s selection automatically qualified him as a finalist for the national award, to be announced later this month.
