4/21/15 After a tough loss to Cayuga last week, the Lady Cats found themselves tied for the final playoff spot with a tough Crossroads team who came to town to play last Friday night. The Lady Cats were up to the challenge as they played their best game of the season and won a very well played game 7-3. Defensively, the Lady Cats were outstanding as they did not commit an error the entire game and everyone that batted had at least one hit in the game. With this victory, all the Lady Cats needed was for Crossroads to lose one more game or we could go and win our last one against Kerens.
On Monday, Kerens came to Fruitvale and the Lady Cats put on another dominating performance beating Kerens 12-2 and clinching another trip to the playoffs. The Lady Cats started off slow this season, but seem to be finding their groove at the right time and hopefully we can carry momentum into the playoffs and make some noise. Our first round opponent is still up in the air, but as soon as I have information I will relay it to you. Also, the girls will be picking out designs for playoff shirts and I will get that info to you as soon as possible.
Please congratulate these girls when you see them for another tremendous season.
3/30/15 The Bobcats loss a heart breaker 12-11 to Saltillo on Friday and loss to North Hopkins early Saturday morning 25-10.
Lack of pitchers led to the huge loss on Saturday along with errors; on a positive note, the Bobcats are beginning to hit the ball and with half the season to go believe we can turn our season around .
4/23/15 Congratulations to senior Sarah Sheppard who advanced to the regional meet with a fourth place finish in the discuss throw. She finished fifth in the shot put, which qualifies her as the alternate to the regional meet. Haiden Lane came up with a sixth place finish in the 100 meter dash against a stiff field of competition. Shelbie Teague competed in the 800 meter dash. The 4 x 100 relay team of Lane, Kylie Eslinger, Emma Shaw, and Emily Williams finished eighth. The same duo turned in their best performance of the season in the 4 x 200. The 4 x 400 of Teague, Williams, eslinger, and Shaw placed seventh.
4/15/15 The jr high girls competed at the district track meet last night. We had nine girls go and they all competed very well. Lauren Brown got 2nd in the 800 and 4th in mile, and anchored the mile relay. Kerstin Aleman got 2nd in the 300 hurdles. Rose White, McKenzie Hunt, Kerstin Aleman, and Katy Rogers got 4th in the 800 relay and 5th in the 400 relay. Really proud of all the girls they did a great job.
4/16/15 A team of 4 boys scored 57 points -- good enough for 4th place at Como Tuesday night. The discus & shoput were cancelled due to water, otherwise it would have been higher. One week of practice was good enough for Albert Anderson to get 4th & Nick Morgan (7'6") to win their new event; the pole vault. Additionally, Hunter Robinson placed 2nd in the 7th grade pole vault division. Gavin Sulc led scorers with 19 pts. on the strength of a win in the 2400m & placed in the mile run & triple jump. Micheal Tilley followed with 18 points & a 2nd place in the high jump (5-2) & placed in the long jump, high jump, triple jump, & the 100m dash. All 4 boys placed 3rd in the spring relay. An excellent showing by all competitors to finish the season.
