Hornets try to regain sting

August 10, 2011

Highland has a new head football coach, Jeff Shelton, this year, and he inherits some good talent from former coach Karry Owens, who left Highland after 18 seasons and a 147-56-3 record to become the head coach at Water Valley.
Highland managed just a 2-7 record for Owens in his final year, but was practically starting over with a slew of youngsters after graduating most of the top talent from the 2009 squad that reached the state finals.

Lady Mustangs win opener

August 10, 2011

A year ago, the Sweetwater volleyball team opened its season with a straight-set loss against Seminole at home. But on Tuesday, Sweetwater hosted Seminole again and the result took a 180-degree turn.
Leading almost all the way, the Lady Mustangs swept the match by scores of 25-20, 25-18, 25-12.
Except for some struggles at the end of the first game and early in the second, Sweetwater was in control against Seminole while getting strong individual performances from several players.

Roscoe will seek another playoff berth

August 8, 2011

Few if any Class 1A high school football programs have more tradition than Roscoe, where the Plowboys haven’t missed the playoffs since 1997.
In 2010, Roscoe had to work harder than usual to make the postseason, but earned its 13th straight trip despite a 4-7 overall record.
Keeping that streak alive won’t be easy. Not only did the Plowboys lose multi-talented quarterback Caden Smith, the district’s MVP, to graduation, but Roscoe returns just four players who started a year ago.

‘Plowboy Preview’ Aug. 12

August 8, 2011

Roscoe’s “Plowboy Preview” is Friday, Aug. 12 at 7 p.m. at the high school football field where the football team, coaches, cheerleaders, cross country athletes and Roscoe band will be introduced. Also, the Roscoe FFA is having a hamburger dinner from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the high school cafetorium. The cost is $5 per plate. Persons are urged to attend both events and support the FFA as well as the Roscoe athletes.
