Another tough loss for the Hearne Eagles

By Michael Cotton

It seems that for the Hearne Eagles basketball team it has been one close call after another. In over half of their district contest this season the Eagles have been in the game until the very end. Only their lack of ability to finish out a contest has kept them from being a very good team this year.

Fighting through

By Michael Cotton

The Calvert Trojans basketball team has demonstrated that they are quite capable of weathering adversity when it arises. They have not let any distractions on the outside take away from their play and focus on the court. Neither grades, nor departures, or any other disruption has slowed them this season. In fact they may have become stronger because of it. They are riding a perfect record in district play and they continue to take care of each of their opponents with relative ease.

Perseverance

By Michael Cotton
 
It hasn’t been your typical basketball season for the Hearne Lady Eagles in 2016. They have played much better basketball this season and that isn’t the reason that it has been atypical. Adversity has been their enemy all year as they have survived injuries, grades, and departures, to persevere this year.

L-Trojans are staying alive

By Michael Cotton

The Calvert Lady Trojans took a page out of an old John Travolta movie this past week. They are doing their best to do a Bee Gee’s number and just “stayin alive” in what has proven to be a tough district race. So far they have managed to hang in there as they have reached the midpoint of the season with a 4-2 record in the 1st half of district play. They have survived injuries, grades, and departures, to forge ahead and maintain contact with the teams at the top of the district. That never say die attitude came into play this week as they gained a split in two key district games. It is a testament to their resiliency as a team this season.

It’s theirs for the taking

By Michael Cotton

 

They are 3 games into the district season and already they can be considered the favorite to win the race. After defeating Kennard, Oakwood and Groveton Centerville, the Trojans clearly have the upper hand in the race. Two of those wins were on the road. That is a bonus because in district play it usually boils down to who can win on the road. The Trojans now hold wins over both Kennard and Groveton- Centerville at their place.

For 18 NFL teams the season has drawn to a close. It was a rough season for a few teams with now the only highlight is Draft Day 2016 and a look at next year. For 12 teams it is a brand new season.
