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.

Meridian hosts tournament

By Brett Voss.
 
It’s always good to be home for the holidays. So with the Meridian boys and girls basketball teams host the annual Meridian Holiday Classic tournament Dec. 27-28, it could prove to be a late Christmas present for both teams. But first, both teams will take a much needed break. Interestingly, both Jacket and Lady Jacket squads have been struggling a bit while going through some growing pains. While both teams have a wealth of talent, the rosters are chalked full of young players trying to get their varsity feet under them before district competition begins in January.

Meridian hoop squads battle tough teams

By Brett Voss.
 
As both teams faced tough schedules in an attempt to prepare for their respective district races right after the holiday break, the Meridian boys and girls basketball teams appeared on the verge of a breakthrough. But while the Jackets managed to split a pair of games last week before the Christmas break began, the Lady Jackets came up short twice. After the Meridian boys opened the week with a 58-53 victory over Holland Dec. 17, the Jackets (4-8) dropped a hard-fought battle to Hamilton, 44-42, last Friday at Jacket Gymnasium.

The Lady Cubs traveled to Hamilton on Tuesday coming away with a close game, but losing 54-43. “This was a very physical game and our post players really stepped up,” said Coach Stephen Bateson. “Karlee Kleibrink did a great job attacking the basket and Erica West distributed the ball very well tonight.” Leading in points, Kleibrink totaled 15, while Maria Chavez added seven; Hope Harris, five; Bobbie Sue Applegate, Marti Hanson and West all added four each; and Toshia Napieralski and Kennadi Strawser hit the hoop for two each.
