District 13-2A

Como-Pickton Lady Eagles play Quitman Friday at 7 p.m. at Miller Grove to break 8-6 district record tie


Lady Eagles sweep A-G

COMO - The Como-Pickton Lady Eagles swept the visiting Alba-Golden Lady Panthers in a senior night victory. The varsity ended on a 44-21 total while the JV ended with 27-13 win.

Appropriately on senior night, the Lady Eagle seniors Maci Kight, Dawnyel Spaid, and Shelby Harrison popped in points to lead their team to a final home court victory pushing their district record to 8-6 tied with Quitman. But that wasn’t the last game of their Lady Eagle career now in  position to fight for the final playoff spot against Quitman Friday night at 7 p.m. in Miller Grove.

"The seniors showed up and played an important role in the victory. I am extremely proud of all of the girls, but I am especially proud of the seniors and the fact that they had an opportunity to be successful on what is designated as 'their night'. They are a great group of girls and we will truly miss those ornery seniors," said Linda Rankin, Como-Pickton Lady Eagles head basketball coach.

Wildcats eye fifth straight playoff berth

Most teams look at the end of a season as a tragic moment, or a failure.

Not Sulphur Springs head baseball coach Jerrod Hammack.

His Wildcats finished the 2008 season with a 15-12 record, losing in the area round to a highly ranked Mesquite Poteet team.

"We lost, but we had chances to win. What was so important was that we were not scared or intimidated by Poteet," Hammack said."I'd like for this team to play like that this season. In past seasons we have been unsure about how we would do against metroplex teams. Maybe we are over that."

Hammack, a native of Mississippi, has made baseball coaching stops in Jacksonville, Nacogdoches and Whitehouse before coming to Sulphur Springs four years ago. The Wildcats have made the playoffs each of the last four seasons. Hammack wants that tradition to continue.

"This is the best place I have coached, it's just a great situation. Kids are interested in baseball here, it's important to the community, everyone is very supportive," Hammack said. "Sulphur Springs has a nice youth baseball program and some traveling teams. I really like it."
