Sports Thoughts

by Mike Organ

The Lady Eagles are off to a good start in volleyball. They are 6-3 for the season. They played Fayetteville Tuesday and are in the RTC Tourney this weekend. A match with RTC on Tuesday after Labor Day follows. One week later they open district action when they host Academy on September 9.

The Eagles were pretty one dimensional on offense against Smithville. The pass offense was outstanding but not much else. That is the style these days, to pass well and then you can run the football. It worked for Texas for a while but the defensive gurus figured out a way to stop or seriously slow it down.

There will one more week before the middle school teams will begin to play. A lot of parents will be in the stands for their prodigies’ first games.

Was it hot in the Dime Box gym Tuesday? When you go to the door and 100ยบ air feels cool, you know it is hot!!!!!
