LUCAS – The Rains Wildcats' 2009 football season came to an end Friday night with a 64-26 loss to the Lovejoy Leopards. Rains finished the season winless with an 0-10 record for only the fourth time in the school's 50-year history.
After making a run in 2007, the rebuilt and empowered Cumby Trojans are out to do it again. The 24-point favorite will give their opponent the home field advantage as they ready for the final district feud with the Celeste Blue Devils.
“I believe we must win or lose by no more than four points,” Cumby Trojan head football coach Ed Perez said directly.
CUMBY— It is all about savoring every moment. That is exactly what first-time head volleyball coach Shelley Jones is doing. Her Cumby Lady Trojan volleyball team has turned the corner on district and is headed for Rains on Saturday, Nov. 7 to play District 19-1A runner-up Big Sandy Lady Wildcats at 7 p.m.
The Lady Trojans dominated their realm in District 18-1A earning them a bye in the first round of playoff competition for Region 3. The winner of Saturday’s action will advance to play the winner of the Avery-Overton bout.
It was the final games for the ninth grade and the junior varsity. These squads put on a show worth the price of admission, taking two wins over Hallsville at Gerald Prim Stadium.
