Keeping the streak alive

For the 1st time in almost three years, senior JaMikel Fletcher got to enjoy running track. He was able to finish several events without suffering a season ending injury. Fletcher won district as a freshman and advanced to the Region before bowing out. At that point his track future looked bright but nagging injuries have either kept him from running at all or hampered his performances year after year. Now it’s his senior campaign and he would like to make one season fully healthy just to see what he is capable of doing in the sport. Although it was just relays he ran this past week at Chilton, he showed the old speed and promise he had as a 9th grader. Overall the Trojans ran well, as Coach Wortham experimented with varying combinations, the week before district. In the field events William Golden won the shot put and Tre Kinney finished 2nd. Exchanges hurt the placement for the relays as they struggled with their handoffs in the races.

Out for revenge

The Mumford Mustang baseball team struggled early on in district play as a number of their key players transitioned from basketball to baseball. Both of their defeats in district play came while the team was still in the adjustment period. This week they get an opportunity to avenge the first of those losses, a 5-0 defeat at the hands of Iola. In that game the Mustangs could only manage 1 hit and committed 6 errors. They are a much improved squad since that game and riding a 5 game winning
streak.

Out for the season

by Michael Cotton
Robertson County News
The Hearne Eagles baseball team has run aground recently. Despite all the efforts of Head Coach Jeff Ally, the Tigers will be unable to finish the season and thus are forfeiting the rest of their scheduled games. No reason has been given for the cancellations so I won’t assume anything in the paper as to what occurred. The Eagles had struggled some but had shown marked improvement from last season to this one. Pitcher Alex Ramirez along with hitters Chris Keeling and Cedrion Golden all were turning into decent baseball players and with work you knew the future looked promising for the team. Circumstances sometimes dictate that you must first fail in life before you succeed. Seems an odd way of learning something to me but that’s life.

Lady Stangs struggle

by Michael Cotton
Robertson County News
They have been searching for answers for weeks now but they can’t seem to get out of the rut they have gotten themselves in. Their pitching has been not up to par and the bats have been uncharacteristically silent all year long. The Mustangs have been shut out more times than they have scored runs in a game. That is not a recipe for playing winning softball. With so many young players making their debut this season the Mustangs have struggled to be competitive. It has made for a long season for the Lady Mustangs. They have to gather themselves for the stretch run and hope that their youthfulness doesn’t hinder the process. Their program has thrived on development of the younger players to replace the game’s stars from the year before.

The 2014-15 Calvert Girls Track team just hopes to establish a bond with each other early and try to build from there. There is always talent in Calvert among the girls as well asthe boys. Track requires hard work and dedication and not every athlete wants to sacrifice the time and word necessary.

End of a magnificent run

There’s an old saying that goes “it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.” That saying holds a lot of truth when you look at the Calvert basketball team. No starter is taller than 5’10” and only 1 of them is that tall. The
rest are 5’7”, 5’8”, 5’9”, and 5’9”.

Swinging a big stick

The Hearne Eagle baseball team has come out swinging this season and the results have been much to Coach Jeff Ally’s liking. The Eagles are in their 2nd year of play under Coach Ally and after a year on the job he is starting to see some of
the rewards for the effort he has invested in the program.
