Tigers drop home opener

The Tigers lost to state ranked Corsicana last night in their home opener 7-1.  Corsicana took advantage of home opener nerves to score 3 times in the first inning. Terrell had its chances, but could never put together a big inning.  The play in the I-45 Classic starting Thursday in Palmer.

Home Opener

Tonight is the home opener for the Tigers baseball team.  The field has had a make over, with final touches still to be completed.  Yesterday parents and workers were putting up netting, bricks and painting.

This morning Tiger baseball players will be at Long Elementary School to greet the kids as the show up for school and tonight is Long night at the ball park.  Students from Long will get in free.  Mr. Charles Temple will throw out the first pitch.

Cowtown 10K

Saturday morning was the Cowtown 10K in Ft. Worth.  This is the 3rd year Brian and I have ran it.  I really need to work on my time.  I was 5 minutes slower this year than last.  I'm sure stopping to take pictures has nothing to do with it.

Dash for Beads

Yesterday was the Dash for Beads 5K in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas.  I heard it the course was hard, lots of hills.  They were right, this was a hard run.  But I'd do it again next year.  Dog owners were encouraged to bring their pooches, the race benefited Fidoakcliff

A bright spot

The varsity boys basketball team have only two games remaining in the season after last nights 56-17 loss to Highland Park.  One bright spot for the Tigers has been the play of the underclassmen including freshman Dawonya Tucker who was promoted to varsity a few games ago.  He scored 9 of the 17 points for the Tigers.
