Indians have historic night



The Jourdanton Indians made Friday’s 63-18 Bi-District win over San Diego an historic night. The win marked Jourdanton’s first 10-win season since 1970. The Indians found a way to get the job done on both sides of the ball, limiting San Diego to just 271 yards of total offense while posting 469 yards of total offense. It was the rushing […]

Jourdanton throwing history out for Halletsville



When you’re the first team in 49 years to win 10 games at your school, it can be easy to look back at the history. For the Jourdanton Indians, being that team certainly helps add confidence, but it doesn’t take any humility away from the team eyeing a deep playoff run. “It definitely adds a lot of confidence,” junior corner […]

Aggies’ fight falls short against perennial power Wimberley



SAN ANTONIO — The Poteet Aggies rallied from a 21-point first half deficit, only to fall to the Wimberley Texans 49-35 in the bi-district round of the UIL football playoffs. The comeback attempt started in the second quarter when Josh Hill sparked a 21-point run for the Aggies with his 35-yard touchdown catch from an Eric Treviño pass. The senior […]

Lady Eagles break into top 25



Three straight wins to open the season helped the Pleasanton Lady Eagles move into the top 25 of the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches weekly poll at no. 21, as was announced on Monday. The day after it was announced, the Lady Eagles made it a perfect 4-0 to start the season with a 45-35 win over Nixon- Smiley on […]

Squaws bring returners, high expectations to new season



The Jourdanton Squaws are off to a hot start in their young 2019-2020 campaign. After a 72-25 win at Stockdale on Tuesday night, the Squaws are off to a 2-0 start and much of that can be attributed to seven returning All- District selections from a year ago, including their offensive MVP Vanessa Vacca and defensive MVP Shyanne Bauerle. After […]

No. 16 Eagles open season in dominant fashion



The no. 16-ranked Pleasanton Eagles have opened the 2019-20 campaign with a pair of wins. The first was a dominant 87-21 win over Beeville on Saturday. The Eagles followed that up with a 62-53 win over Boerne Tuesday. The Eagles never really struggled against Beeville, leading by as many as 36 points and holding the Trojans to just two points […]

Poteet’s Ralph Reed passes on

Sports Focus

It was sad day for me when I learned last week that Ralph Reed, 81, of Poteet had passed away after a long illness. Reed was a good friend who always wanted to talk sports when I’d run into him at sporting events in the county. I think I can say with certainty that Reed was one of the best […]

COWGIRLS OUT IN REGIONAL SEMIS

The McMullen County Cowgirls (25-15) hug head coach Darcy Stockton after their Area round win over Leakey. The Cowgirls were knocked out of the regional tournament in the semifinals in four sets by Fayetteville (28-26, 25-22, 25-18, 25-16). It was the first time since 2017 that the Cowgirls reached the regional tournament.

Jourdanton moves into the Area Playoffs

Grid Picks

The Jourdanton Indians, you could say, demolished the San Diego Vaqueros, 63-18, in the Bi- District round of State Playoffs. The Indians will meet Hallettsville on Friday, Nov. 22, at Smithson Valley Stadium. I feel that Jourdanton will win this game. Poteet lost to a good Wimberley team last Friday, 49-35, in Bi- District. The ever-improving Aggies gave Wimberley ‘the […]
