I have been informed that Dylan Iselt has been asked to run track for Concordia Lutheran University next athletic year. We will have a picture of the signing when it occurs.
I also had a nice phone call from Bob Evans, whose grandson, Landon, played for the Eagles in ’08 and ’09. Landon had a nice season with Bryan St. Joseph and will be playing for Trinity University in San Antonio next year.
Lexington and Rogers are both out of the baseball playoffs; however, second place Academy is moving on to the third round of the playoffs and will face Vanderbilt Industrial.
The third place Rogers’ baseball team put Hallettsville out of the playoffs. Rogers tends to play well during the playoffs, despite their regular season record.
There are numerous ex-Eagles that will be graduating from universities in the coming days. Sports enable the students to prepare for competition in the working world – for jobs and promotions. Congratulations to all who have persevered.
An Idalou runner has a time just slower than Rheim Petterson and will be running against Rheim later this week. Petterson will be trying to defeat the Idalou runner, for sure, during the State Tournament this Saturday in Austin!!!!
The Lexington High School Athletic Banquet is coming up next Monday night. It is always interesting to see if the coaches pick the same MVP’s as the fans. Remember, everyone is eligible and it is a hard job to pick one athlete over others. Not everyone will agree with the choices, but instead of griping, be happy for those chosen.
Anyone can attend the banquet. This year it will be held at the Lexington Park Building located on Highway 77, north of the Lexington Elementary School and next to the City Park.
