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.

Emily Perez Takes 7th at State Meet

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.

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.”
