Sports Thoughts………

by Mike Organ

Saturday morning will give everyone an idea what kind of team Lexington will have. The youngsters seem very focused in their daily workouts. This could be the year Lexington becomes the next dot on the Highway 77 state champion football map. The map currently has dots on each town from Rosebud to Victoria.

The volleyball girls will have opened their season when you read this. Things are really moving along the calendar.

Coach Kellye Johnston has the cross-country runners cruising around town. They have to get in many miles of running a week to be competitive in the upcoming cross-country season.

The September 22, 1933 edition of the Bartlett Tribune and News states Lexington, Bartlett, Thorndale, Thrall, Hutto, Round Rock, and Holland had a meeting of Class C schools to organize the district for the year. That was the year Lexington won their first and only Class C championship. The rules said to be eligible for the championship teams must play at least three games with an ‘eligible’ team. If a team played an ineligible team in the same district, the school would be disqualified. A Mr. Donoly represented Lexington at the meeting.

This is the first tidbit from the articles I referenced last week that were given to me by Stanley Miller.
