Karry Owens, who earlier this year submitted his resignation as head football coach at Highland after 18 years, has accepted a similar job at Water Valley. His last day at Highland was on Friday.

Texas Alumni Football is also responsible for two other Abilene-area games on Saturday. Aspermont plays Hermleigh on Aspermont's field at 2 p.m., and Stamford squares off with Haskell at Stamford's Bulldog Stadium at 7:30 p.m.

Guns -N- Hoses event planned

April 22, 2011

On Thursday, April 28, 2010, the Sweetwater Fire Department and the Sweetwater Police Department will be "fighting" it out for a good cause. They will be having the third Guns and Hoses Basketball Game, benefiting the West Texas Children's Advocacy Center. The game will be at the Sweetwater High School Gym at 7 p.m. and the teams will compete to see who wins this year's game.

This year’s Class 3A boys state tournament will be held May 12-13 at Austin’s Roy Kizer Golf Course.
