2009 Basketball Action Photos in Review

User Rating: / 1

So, like Don, I wanted to end the year with a summary of photos for all the other local schools that we cover.

Well, given that involves over seven different schools, I opted to approach my 2009 in review by sport instead of month. Since basketball was still fresh on my mind, I am starting with it.

Lady Cats ‘cook’ a district win

TEXARKANA – The Sulphur Springs Lady Cats found the right recipe to mix up a district win on Friday night – simply, take an early lead and never let go.

To make that happen, the Lady Cats found the perfect ingredients to chalk up their first District 13-4A victory – take care of the basketball and get a little nasty on defense.

The Lady Cats turned the ball over just 11 times and limited Texas High to less than 20 percent shooting from the field to take a 46-23 victory at Tiger Center.


Wildcats mauled by Tigers, 78-38

The Texas High Tigers stayed undefeated in District 13-4A play with a 78-38 win over Sulphur Springs here Friday night in the SSHS gym.

Eleven players scored for the Tigers against a Wildcat squad which suited up only six players.

High point man for Texas High was Greg Pollins with 16 (eight rebounds) while David Boone added 13 and John McGee contributed 12.

Top scorer for the Wildcats was Joey Davis with 12.


Yantis splits homecoming tilts with Savoy

User Rating: / 3

YANTIS — Fans that braved the cold January temperatures were warmed with basketball action excitement at Yantis Friday night as both varsity games kept fans on their feet in support of their home teams.

The Yantis Owls gave the homecoming crowd a 72-56 victory with four of the players achieving double-digit scoring against the visiting Savoy squad.

The two opposing boys teams took to the court after a special dedication to war veteran James Franklin Starrett. Starrett received his lost ribbons for his military service by local Yantis resident Liz Thompson.

Preceding the girls varsity game was the 2010 Homecoming ceremony in which Shelby Allen, daughter of David and Margie Allen and Eddie Herrerra, son of Jose Vicente and Rafaela Herrerra, were crowned as the new royalty by former King Daniel Cerretani and Queen Amanda McKinney.
