The Cheyenne Wells Tigers continues to put a competitive team in the 3A golf ranks each and every season and this season is no different. Well, according to head coach Stacy Noe, this group of girls is different as they have improved a lot since last year and are now competitive in the tournaments they are competing in.
The Eads team continues to have growing pains as Chad Rouse’s young group has struggled with undependable weather tantrums, inexperienced players, and some fairly major illness that has combined to challenge the young Eagles.
The Eads Eagles have yet to play in their home opener as they continued on the road over the past week playing their fourth consecutive game away from the home hearth. Last Tuesday their bats were strong, but defensively they could not hold off 2A Fowler losing, 21-11. However, on Friday, Eads gained their first win, and a conference win to boot, when they grabbed a gem of a game, 6-1, over Granada. The Bobcats would just slip by Eads in the second five-inning game, 7-6. But now, this week, the Eagles are looking at a line of games to be played on their own turf.
Nearly 40 teams were on hand for one of the largest all-classification track meets in the region on Thursday as the La Junta Tiger Relays dragged on into the darkness of evening as competitors battled to finish strong in their given track & field events. The Eads boys placed in 13th and the Eads girls’ team were 9th with just one 1A team in front of them, and that being Springfield.
It’s March Madness across the country right now, and never was there more madness than in Eastern Colorado at Plainview School on Thursday night when the assletes, or donkeys as you might better know them, from Dairyland Donkey Basketball came to school to, well, “school” the local Plainview staff, Plainview student body, Plainview alumni and local Emergency Management personnel.
