The Sulphur Springs Lady Cats saw their five-game winning streak come to an end Saturday at home.
The Lady Cats concluded the Sulphur Springs softball tournament, losing 2-1 to Forney in a fierce battle.
SALTILLO — It has been all about team for the Saltillo Lions and their basketball coach Doug Schindler. Faced with injuries throughout the season, it has had to be a team effort.
“We have had lots of injuries from knee to torn muscles,” explained Schindler in his first year as the Lions head coach. “We had to cut the JV team down to just varsity with all the players hurt. We did not get everyone back until right before district. Our best game this season was the district tie-breaker against Sulphur Bluff. We really jelled together as a team.”

The Lady Cats rolled to two big wins in the second round of the Sulphur Springs Springs softball tournament.
What a difference a week makes.
Last Thursday Gerald Prim Stadium was covered by seven inches of snow.
This week the field was covered with goals as the Sulphur Springs Wildcats took a 7-0 home decision Thursday over Commerce.
The game was originally set for Feb. 11, but snowed out. This time around the kicks by Sulphur Springs were hot enough to melt the ice.
