Sharyland sweeps 30-5A, Palmview finishes strong

20110411_District-30-5A-Track_BN3G1622These Rattlers are fast. Whether male, female, freshman, sophomore, junior or senior, doesn't matter. The boys and girls squads of Sharyland Track and Field proved to be tops in 30-5A when both teams took home the first place hardware at the District 30-5A meet this week at La Joya.

For the boys, the domination was due mostly to its runners. However, Roberto Salinas took home first in the discus throw (150-0), contributing to the team’s overall score of 210. The team’s outstanding overall score broke the district record of 189 set last year by the Rattlers.

20110408-J-L-v-Valley-View-Boys-Soccer-037In one final swoop every local boys and girls soccer team was removed from the playoffs. Just like that – the soccer season is over.

All felt the disappointment of failing to advance but none more than the Sharyland and Juarez-Lincoln boys. Both programs made fantastic runs in 2010, both dominated their districts in equally embarrassing fashion in 2011 and both went home early.

Scholar-Athlete Signs with Valparaiso University

20110324_VMHS_KentWarren_PT_82Veterans Memorial High School’s football and basketball star player Kent Warren signed scholarship papers today (Thursday) with Valparaiso University. Although the star athlete will play football for the Valpo Crusaders, his scholarship is for his academic abilities, not his athletic skills. Warren is ranked third in his high school class academically. Math is one of his many strong suits, says the TMSEA two-time State Champion in individual calculator applications. He was also a member of the school’s UIL Calculator Applications team that won first in state. In football he was named to the All-District Team two years, while in basketball he was named to the All-Valley Team and twice to First Team All-District. He was also named to the Academic All-State Team for both football and basketball.
