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.

Fresh Start

By Brett Voss.

After missing the playoffs for the first time in six years last season and losing their head coach, the Meridian Lady Jackets were looking to get a fresh start this season. With new head coach Shawn Griffin, that’s exactly what the Lady Jackets have gotten. And certainly, thanks to returning lettermen Noemi Monrreal, Sonya Mendoza, Cassidy Menger, Krista Warren, Ashlee Hooks and Morgan Poston as well as a host of young prospects, Griffin came to Meridian with plenty to work with in the cupboards.

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.”

Clifton boys open strong

By Carol Spicer.

The Covington Owls traveled to Clifton on Friday night, only to go home after a huge 85-24 loss to the Clifton Cubs. Coach Dodd Carmichael, in his first year at Clifton, rotated the players consistently throughout the game to get a good idea how each one of them played. Senior Zach Thiele led in points racking up 21, the majority of them in the first half and 16 from threepoint shots. He was closely followed by Grant Shane with 18, 10 of them in the third quarter.

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.

Walnut Springs knocked out

By Brett Voss.

ARLINGTON - In a wild, see-saw battle, the balanced tipped in the wrong direction in the end for the Walnut Springs Hornets. Despite taking the lead twice in the fourth quarter, the Hornets could not hold off Savoy as the Cardinals rallied for a dramatic 38-36 Class Six-Man, Division I bi-district victory last Friday night. Tony Chavez scored three touchdowns and Noel Chavez threw for two scores in the loss. Savoy (7-3) knocked Walnut Springs out of the playoffs last year as well as the Cardinals handing the Hornets a 34-26 loss in 2012.

Rising Above The Rest

By Brett Voss.

Going into the final weekend of the 2013 Texas high school football regular season, all but two of the eight Bosque County teams were playing for something - whether it was its respective district title or a playoff berth. And even though it could have been so much more, the county will be well represented in the UIL state playoffs. While six of the area’s eight high school football teams were playing for something, three schools - Merdian, Walnut Springs and Cranfills Gap - will advance into the postseason.
