Cubs’ win keeps postseason hopes alive

By Carol Spicer.
 
Taking on the Bruceville-Eddy Eagles at home on Tuesday night, the Cubs took an early lead in the first quarter, 13-6 – but then had to battle their way throught the next three quarters – to a last second three-pointer to win by two, 45-43. The Cubs had a slow second quarter only hitting for three, but came back after the half ready to play some ball, going for 18 in a hot third quarter and 11 in the fourth.

By Brett Voss.

Just when the Meridian Yellowjacket boys basketball team appeared to be cruising to their second straight Class 1A, Division I state playoff berth, they hit a speed bump last week. Two speed bumps, in fact. After wrapping up the first round of District 12-1A, Div. I competition with a disappointing 55-47 loss to Bosque County arch rival Valley Mills at home last Tuesday night, the Jackets suffered their second straight loss at San Saba, 47-35, last Friday night.

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.

Hamilton came to Clifton and though the Cubs held them off for three quarters, the Bulldogs pulled ahead in the fourth for a 48-47 score on Tuesday, Jan. 21. “The kids played with good effort and really deserved a win,” said Coach Dodd Carmichael, “It was unfortunate that Zach (Thiele) got hurt in the second quarter; but the team held their own until late in the game.
