Aledo cruises through area match with drubbing of Saginaw

Staff Report

The Ladycats jumped out to a 18-3 lead before Saginaw finally sank its first field goal with less that two minutes left in the opening quarter on Thursday, as Aledo dominated in a Class 4A, Area-round contest at Chisholm Trail High School. 

Aledo enjoyed a 33-15 lead at the half, with Alyssa Dry owning the hot hand, scoring 12 points in the opening quarters. Dry finished as Aledo’s top scorer, with 15 points. Senior Mallory Powell added 10 for the Ladycats.

The Aledo girls kept the pressure on after the break, cruising to a 59-30 win over the Lady Rough Riders. 

Dry sat out for much of the third quarter, with foul trouble, but her teammates took up the slack until the guard re-entered the game in the final period.

Aledo advances to the regional quarterfinal round, new territory for the Ladycats, and will meet up with the winner of the Granbury-Wichita Falls Rider Area match, set for Friday.


Lady Eagles advance with dominating victory over Sunnyvale

Staff Report

Brock’s Lady Eagles began postseason play on Thursday, just as they ended district play recently — methodically dismantling its opponents. Sunnyvale could not stem the Brock tide as the Lady Eagles rolled to a 63-28 victory in Class 2A, area-round play at Nolan Catholic High School in Fort Worth.

Brock led by a 12-point margin by the end of the first half, increasing their lead throughout the rest of the contest, as the Lady Raiders could find no answer at either end of the court.

Advancing to the regional quarterfinal round, Brock will play the winner of the Howe-Maypearl area match at a site and time to be determined.

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
