Sports Thoughts…

by Mike Organ

The Eagles will have captured the one victory they need to qualify for the playoffs, by the time you read this. It is amazing the difference a year makes. The Eagles were not respected by the district last season, but have impressed all this season.

The Lady Eagle basketball team will have better days if they stick it out. They could have been 8-2 right now instead of 2-8 with just a little bit of luck or whatever. Next season will be fun for the young ladies if they grow as much basketball wise as they have this year.

The Longhorn basketball team is in free fall after being #1 in the nation for a week. I wonder if the coaches can get them back to playing solid ball. They lost Friday because they did not block out a rebounder, a junior high maneuver. The same mistake cost the University of Houston a national championship. High School stars are sometimes ‘too good’ to do the small things needed at the next level.

With softball and baseball practice beginning, just how long will it be before there is a track meet?
