Sports Thoughts

by Mike Organ

By the time you read this Ally Abshire and Ben Spencer will be wearing their medals from the state tennis tourney. I hope they will be gold.

With the success of the Eagle track team, they should be the favorites to win the district football championship next fall. The only senior that appears to be heading to state is Titus Clark. The rest of the speed will be back next season. The future looks good baring injuries.

With the extra two weeks, Elydia Farwell may have a chance to pick up a gold in the sprint relay and keep her string of gold medals going.

The Lady Eagles softball team was very impressive in beating Thorndale. Are the Lady Dogs as good as Lexington's regional competition? The game Tuesday against Shiner will be against the #1 Class A team in the state. That will be an awfully good test. Lexington has played Hallettsville and East Bernard earlier this season. Both were close contests and Lex- ington could have won both games.

The Lady Eagles will probably play their first Area game on Thursday the 14th. That is mere speculation, not fact. Keep an eye on the LISD web page for the exact schedule.
