Lady Cats swing for district title

Today is a date David Carrillo circled on his calendar a long time ago.

Carrillo, the Sulphur Springs head softball coach, gets to hold the first practice with his team according to UIL rules and regulations.

The Lady Cats went 24-11 in 2009 and were co-champions of District 13-4A. Carrillo feels that this year is a good time to complete the unfinished business of taking the title and making a  run in the playoffs.

Last year the team fell 9-0 and 12-4 to Waco Midway in the area round of the Class 4A playoffs.


Lady Cats on road again; Wildcats host Hallsville

The Sulphur Springs Wildcats hope that their second home district game of the week goes better than the one did Tuesday.

The loss Tuesday to Marshall, 72-49 was  a sign of fatigue. The Wildcats (1-21, 0-5)  are playing short-handed which limits their able to keep up with some teams..

Probable starters include: Seth Harris, Joey Davis, Alvin Frazier, Gage Williams and Jaquavian Willis.

The Wildcats host Hallsville (12-10, 0-5) on Friday with game scheduled for the ninth, JV and varsity teams beginning at 5 p.m.


Wildcats blank Royse City, 4-0

Sulphur Springs soccer teams sweep a pair of Tuesday night home games against Royse City.

The unusually warm weather at Gerald Prim Stadium was a nice backdrop to the game.

The varsity took a 4-0 win with Adrian Correa coming up with three goals while Jesus Arellano added one goal according to Wildcats head varsity soccer coach Andy Holt.

The varsity won 4-0 behind a hat trick of three goals by sophomore Adrian Correa with Jesus Arellano adding one.

“I thought we had a good showing. We played much better this time against Royse City than we did a couple of weeks ago and the results show that. Rodrigo Larios did a good job for us at sweeper helping to keep Royse City from scoring,” Holt said.
