Meridian Physicals

The Meridian Yellowjacket football players will take their first step toward preparing for the 2013 Texas high school football season when the Clifton Medical Clinic offers free physicals Thursday from 5-7:30 p.m.

And then in just a little over two weeks, the Jackets will open their pre-season two-a-day workouts Aug. 5.

As a courtesy to all student athletes in the county, the Clifton Medical Clinic will provide athletic physicals free of charge as all incoming seventh, ninth and 11th graders will need one to participate in UIL sports during the 2013-14 school year.

"It's a service provided by the Clifton Medical Clinic for area kids and we get the word out," Meridian football head coach and athletic director Todd Doughty said. "We appreciate their efforts in helping our kids and local families with the cost."

Cub bats bang out district wins

Zach Gloff improves to 5-2 on the mound for the Clifton Cubs following the last couple of games.

Clifton Cubs varsity hosted their district rival Crawford Pirates on Friday, March 22. The Cubs behind a quick start on offense and strong pitching from Zach Gloff held on for a 5-4 win, said Coach Brian Slater. The Cub offense got going quickly with back to back singles by Jaren Brooks and Jarrett Wingate to start the game. Crawford then misplayed a Kyler Kleibrink ground ball which allowed Brooks to score from second. Zach Gloff then hit a two-out, two-run double to the wall in Left to extend the lead to 3-0.

Emily Brewer pitched during recent action at home.

After dropping a hard loss to Crawford, 9-0, on Friday, March 22, the Lady Cubs bumped bats with Waco Reicher on Tuesday, March 26, and fell hard, 9-0 for the second time. The Lady Cubs weren’t even in the game at Reicher, as Reicher took the 9-0 in the first two innings of the game, and Clifton only connected with three balls. Connecting were Halie Applegate, Paige Culp and Bobbie Sue Applegate – each only hitting a single.

Lady Jacket rally falls short

Lady Jacket pitcher Christian Radde.

After posting their first District 12-1A victory of the season, the Meridian Lady Jacket softball team hoped to stay on the winning track. And even though they came up short against San Saba last week, it wasn’t from a lack of never-say-die effort. After falling behind 17-5, the Lady Jackets battled back but came up short in a 19-13 loss to San Saba to open the second round of district play.
