Sulphur Springs finished the football season at 10-4 in the fourth round of the playoffs. Several players received all-district football honors.

“This is another great honor for our kids,” said Sulphur Springs head football coach Greg Owens. “ This is one of, if not the toughest, district in the state – to be named to the all district team is a great accomplishment. We are proud of all of our kids and the dedication and hard work they put in to being the best they can be. I’m not sure where I got this but I believe it, and we sell this to our kids, ‘When the team is first, all the personal accolades will take care of themselves.’”

Being indoors might be the best place to be this time of the year.

For powerlifters at Cumby inside the weight room may not necessarily be the most warm and toasty place to be, but they know if they want to achieve success it will require some work.

“We are very excited about this year's powerlifting season and team,” said Cumby head powerlifting coach Gary Parrish. “Our expectations for our athletes are very high, and we envision them being successful. We are please about the number of kids out and how very hard they are working. They know that 'Work Wins' and they have a chance to do something special this season. I believe we have several regional qualifiers and potentially some state qualifiers.”
