The Lady Cat Blue team defeated a quick and physical Hallsville team, 23-15 last Thursday night finishing district play with a 6-1 record. According to the coach the team played another outstanding defensive game by outscoring Hallsville 9-2 in the decisive fourth quarter.
Sunday night proved to be the night where everyone brought their “A’’ game, producing all four 700 series and one of the three women’s 600 series. Shayne Wilson posted the men’s high series during Sunday night mixed play with his 741 three-game scratch series.
Gone are two hour trips to Marshall and Hallsville, but they have been replaced with treks to Sherman and Denison.
Either way it seems like the University Interscholastic League biennial redistricting and reclassification has been pretty kind to Sulphur Springs.
Sulphur Springs stayed in 4A with an enrollment of 1,130. In the state class 4A was schools between 990 and 2,064 with that applying to 246 schools across the state of Texas.
The following is a list of the area schools and how they were affected by the UIL realignment which was released today.
Class 3A Region 2 District 15
Just off the mark by a count of three, Mount Vernon will remain in Class 3A competition for another two years. Atlanta, Paris, North Lamar, Liberty-Eylau and Pleasant Grove will join them in Region 2 District 15.
“We were hoping for 2A,” said Mount Vernon athletic director and head football coach Charles Swann. “It didn't work out. We have been in this position for the past four years. We will be one of the smallest schools in 3A if not the smallest; however, we have good kids that don't mind hard work.”
