Lady Jackets knock off Valley Mills for second time, but fall in San Saba

By Brett Voss.

The Meridian Lady Jacket girls basketball squad took a huge step in the right direction last week by snapping a four-game losing streak with a convincing 73-48 victory over Bosque County arch rival Valley Mills at home last Tuesday night. And even though the Lady Jacket lost to District 12-1A, Division I’s second place San Saba, 52-40, last Friday night, Meridian finds itself still in the hunt for a playoff spot heading into the home stretch of the regular season this week.

Lady Jackets look to snap losing streak against Goldthwaite, Hico

By Brett Voss.

After opening District 12-1A, Division I competition with a dramatic 60-51 victory over Bosque County arch rival Valley Mills Jan. 3, the Meridian Lady Jacket girls baasketball team has fallen on hard times, in more ways than one. The flu bug and foul trouble led to back-to-back losses to San Saba and DeLeon last week, dropping the Lady Jackets into a pack of four teams battling for position behind district leaders Goldthwaite and San Saba. And it won’t get any easier for the Meridian girls this week as they take on first place Goldthwaite Tuesday before traveling to Hico Friday night.
