Lady Cubs grab two wins

By Carol Spicer.
 
Although a little slow to start the game, simply trading points throughout the first half, the Lady Cubs came out strong in the second half to win 56-46 over the Troy Lady Trojans. After going into the half down 23-24, the Lady Cubs came out in the second half determined to win – and it showed as they scored 19-16 in the third and 14-6 in the fourth quarters for the win. Scoring high for the Lady Cubs were Erica West with 19; Karlee Kleibrink and Kennadi Strawser with 11 each; Hope Harris, six; Marti Hanson, four; Maria Chavez, three; and Bobbie Sue Applegate, two. West hit the basket for 14 of 16 free throws.

By Brett Voss.
 
Coming off a solid performance in the annual Meridian Holiday Classic basketball tournament, the Meridian Lady Jacket girls basketball team opened distict in style last Friday night. And they did it on the road against their Bosque County arch rival, the Valley Mills Lady Eagles. Not bad for a late Christmas present. Behind the scoring combination of junior Morgan Poston and sophomore Ashlee Hooks, the Lady Jackets took a commanding halftime lead before holding off a fourth quarter rally to post a 60-51 victory in Valley Mills.

UIL changes the face of sports for 2014

By Brett Voss.
 
After a year of change in 2013, University Interscholastic League will never look the same again as we head into 2014. When the Texas Education Commissioner approved a number of key amendments that were passed by the University Interscholastic League Legislative Council, the creation of six divisions for UIL sports, including a Class 6A, finally became a reality. In addition, 2014 will see a fourth playoff team added to all team sports at the Class 3A and 2A levels and a reduction in the number of tournaments or meets by one per season for all applicable high school sports.
