All four of my Grandkids enjoyed winning weeks last week and all four of their teams won their respective district championship! Quite a feat for the four first timers!
First off, Austin and his San Marcos Diamondbacks, won a squeaker over cross town rival, Goodnight, by a 14-12 score. The Diamondbacks, losers of their first 2 games, claimed the 7th grade, district championship and ended up with 6 wins and 2 losses for the year.
Mikayla and her Goldthwaite 7th graders won their district championship, beating a scrappy team from Meridian 29-20. Goldthwaite lost their first game then coasted to a 7 and 1 record!
Sara’s, 13th State ranked, Copperas Cove Bulldawgs, survived being upset last week by A&M Consolidated and came back and hammered Harker Heights 38-6, winning their Class 5A district championship and moving on to play Mesquite in the first round of the State playoffs, this Friday night in Waco.
Meanwhile, Colton and his, 19th State ranked, Goldthwaite Eagles traveled to Meridian, came from behind twice and won a close, hard fought game over the Yellow Jackets, 33-26. The win ran the Eagl’s record overall to 9 and 1 and gave them the district championship with a mark of 5 and 0. This Friday, the Eagles begin the State Class 1A playoffs and square off in Moody against Thorndale.
Coach Spradley is all smiles after the big win against Meridian and poses with his 3 Freshman stand outs (L to R) Sergio, Colton and Tyler.
High school football playoffs begin this Friday night and middle school basketball started for Mikayla on Monday with her Lady Eagles taking on Dublin and losing 29-20. Mikayla did not score but collected 2 rebounds and had 3 steals. Austin will also be playing basketball but his season hasn’t begun. Sara will run track and Colton will participate in track and baseball. Much more high school sports to come with my Grandkids and their teams.
