NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has traveled to Arkansas to meet with free-agent pitcher Cliff Lee.
Nothing like taking on a bunch of Indians the first round of the playoffs to get the Wildcats pumped up for another postseason football run.
Sulphur Springs takes on Jacksonville Indians Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the Class 4A Division II playoffs set for Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium in Tyler.
The Indians lucked out on the travel time only needing to travel 30 miles to the stadium while Sulphur Springs is more than an hour or 60 miles away. But the neutral location was chosen and agreed on both coaches. The game had be played on Thursday night due to the popularity of the stadium which is booked on Friday.
HUGHES SPRINGS — Determination. That is exactly what the Cumby Lady Trojans volleyball team had Tuesday night.
It was a combination of 10 seniors and juniors from Cumby who earned the victory they had been waiting on since last season. The District 18-1A Area Champion Cumby Lady Trojans battled through five games against the District 20-1A Area Champion Overton Lady Mustangs to win the Region 3 Quarterfinal crown.
Chalk it up to growing pains to open the basketball season.
New Sulphur Springs head girls varsity basketball coach Jeff Chapman saw the Lady Cats fall behind as Mount Vernon went on a 19-6 scoring burst which led to a 69-38 win Tuesday in the SSHS gym.
Chapman said, “We had good effort and some bright spots. I wish we had time to play a few games before taking on an established program like Mount Vernon. But our girls worked hard against a veteran ball club.”
