Jackets push for next level

By Brett Voss.

When looking at their 2013-14 non -district schedule, the Meridian Yellowjakcets boys basketball team certainly has its job cut out for it. After the experience gained from last season’s playoff appearance, Jacket head coach Tim Berg maintains high hopes for his squad’s season. With six returning lettermen, it’s easy to see why. But the Jackets also remain painfully aware of the fact that to be able to compete in the tough District 12-1A, Division I, Meridian will have to be at the top of their game.

Jackets turn focus to hoops

By Brett Voss.

Wasting little time once football season ended, the Meridian Yellowjacket boys basketball team went right to work last week. Using the momentum of a successful football season and the experience gained from last season’s playoff appearance, Jacket head coach Tim Berg hopes his squad can pick up right where they left off. With six returning lettermen from a squad that posted a winning record while making the playoffs for the second time in four seasons under Berg, it’s easy to see why.

Lady Cubs post season’s first victory

By Carol Spicer.

The Lady Cubs had trouble scoring early on and dug themselves into a 0-10 hole in the first quarter against Axtell on Nov. 19. They did rebound but were never able to make up for it with the final score 31-50 for Axtell. “We had a hard time putting the ball in the basket early on,” said Coach Stephen Bateson. “We had some good looks, but nothing would fall for us. Then we got into foul trouble in the second half and that hurt us.”

Early Exit

By Brett Voss.

KEMP - During the course of school history, high school football playoff victories have been hard to come by for the Meridian Yellowjackets. In fact, despite making 23 post-season appearances since 1940, the Jackets have posted only seven playoff wins. Last Friday night in Kemp, history repeated itself. Even though the Jackets mounted a clutch fourth quarter drive and cashed in for a two-point conversion to tie the score, the Detroit Eagles responded to rally for a dramatic and heartbreaking 21-14 Class 1A, Division II bi-district victory.
