Sports Thoughts……

by Mike Organ

Everyone should give a big thanks to the Lexington Athletic Association for the big “Meet the Eagles” night. It was a huge success, with tons of support for the youngsters recognized.

The volleyball girls will need to develop some consistency on the court. You can’t play a top notch game one match, and then try to cruise through the next game, no matter who the opponent. Coach Player is very happy with the girls thus far.

The football team will have to have a strong performance by the offensive line every play if the team is to live up to preseason expectations. Their performance in the first scrimmage was good, but not against the same quality opponent they will face in the four pre-district games.

The Astros management fired Manager Brad Mills. The poor guy was playing a major league schedule with minor league talent. They blame the manager when upper management did not give him the players to be successful.

I think Coach Mack may be on the hot seat this season. If the Longhorns don’t improve dramatically, he may retire, just like Coach Gestenkors.

I hope things don’t go as bad for the Aggies, as is predicted. Even coaches are saying the Ags don’t have the type of talent to compete at a high level in the SEC. One wag even predicted a sixth or seventh place in their division of the conference.
