Neither the weather or the opponents were kind to Sulphur Springs players during Thursday night football games.
Ninth grade games
In two ninth grade games played at Gerald Prim Stadium Longview got both decisions.
The Sulphur Springs tennis team made the most of their time on the courts Thursday before the bad weather arrived, taking a 13-0 win over Marshall in District 13-4A competition.
In girls doubles - Shelby Carter and Jamie Wilson won 6-2, 6-1; Alejandro Mira and Kadie Moore combined for a 6-2, 6-2 win and Mallory Martin and Madie Millsap won 7-6, 3-6, 6-3.
MOUNT PLEASANT – The Como-Pickton cross country teams competed recently at the Titus County Fair Meet in Mount Pleasant.
Some were out battling the flu and some were still adjusting to the program, Saturday’s meet showed improvement on the part of the team.
Like two trains steaming down the same track, the collision between Longview and Sulphur Springs was inevitable.
Both are state-ranked. Sulphur Springs comes into the game Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Lobo Stadium as the No. 4 team in the state. Longview is ranked No. 6 in the Associated Press poll.
