SB distance runners race in Eustace
EUSTACE — Sulphur Bluff distance runners had their first meet of the season in Eustace on Feb. 26. Everett Wilder placed second in the 3,200-meter run and the 1,600-meter run for the varsity team. Trey Henderson placed fourth in the 800-meter and sixth in the 1,600-meter as well for the varsity.
The history was not lost on Sulphur Springs head basketball coach Braughn Curtis who described the memorable year in basketball.
Many hoops coaches would be jealous of the success of a gridiron program that produced a state champion and left the basketball team short-handed, Curtis took it all in stride.

LINDALE – The Miller Grove Hornets can say that they were back into postseason play after a 20 year dry spell.
It was in 1988 that the Hornets achieved the area round, and in 1983 both the girls and boys’ teams were in regionals. But it was last night’s Class 1A Division II Regional Quarterfinal game against the defending state champion Laneville Yellowjackets that Miller Grove had the wind taken from their sails in a 72-58 loss.
“We had a crappy second half, you take that away, and it was a one point game,” said Miller Grove Hornets head basketball coach Gary Billingsley disappointedly. “We didn’t play defense and with a team (Laneville) this good you can’t afford to do that.”
