Football star Javier Femat, runners highlight Lobo athletic season

20100924-Palmview-v-Mission-Football-129Javier Femat has made a lasting mark on both Palmview High School and District 30-5A athletics. The now former starting quarterback is getting set to graduate, never to take a football snap for the Lobos again. While his plays will be solely confined to the highlight reel, Femat's legacy will live on in the record books as the school's all-time leading rusher and passer.

The Valley Offensive Player of the Year and 30-5A MVP headlined all Lobo athletic achievements for his bruising style of play and ability to find the end zone. However, Femat was not the only Palmview Lobo to find success in the realm of athletics. There were plenty more who made their stamp in the Lobo legacy.

Mission High's first year in 30-5A reveals hidden gems

20110520_09_Roland-GarciaThe jump from 4A to 5A was not so kind to the Mission High School Eagles this year. Because the tradition rich school barely made the cut for realignment a year ago, its athletic programs have had to compete against bigger schools who can draw from a larger pool of athletes for their teams. As a result, it has been an uphill battle in District 30-5A.

Despite being at such a disadvantage, the Eagles were still able to produce some solid teams as well as produce some outstanding athletes who made a name for themselves and their school by their athletic performances.

IMG_8087Emily Perez of Juarez-Lincoln High School placed seventh in the 3200 meter run this morning at the State UIL Track & Field Championships in Austin.

Last year, Perez's time at state was 11:36.24.

IMG_9672Perez will compete again tonight in the 1600 meter run in the 4A division. Sharyland will have two boys relay teams compete in the 5A division on Saturday.

SOMETHING SPECIAL

Shary Relay Teams Go To State

20110510-Sharyland-Boys-Track-Relay-Team-003It has been a special year for Sharyland Track and Field. In his two years as the Head Track and Field Coach, Tom Lee has led the Rattler boys to back-to-back district championships and 16 straight meets of finishing first in between. The team culminated the special year with a District 30-5A championship that saw the team set the district meet record for total points with 210.

Speaking of his team as a whole, Lee says this year's kids just took over from the year before. “[They have] a mentality that they don't want to lose a race or a meet.”

Four teams looking for bi-district wins

20110429_BASEBALL_LaJoya_vs_Rowe_0136Bart Bickerton is no fan of the one-game playoff in post-season play. His reasoning is well thought out. After all, the major leagues all play in a series because that is the way to know who is the better team as it matches up the two teams' top pitchers and not top pitcher.

“Baseball should never come down to one game,” Bickerton explains. “You can have a pitcher that gets hot and the worse team beats the better team.”
