Billue pours in 21 to lead Ladycats to win and Albany tourney title

ALBANY – Payton Billue scored a game-high 21 points to lead the Santo Ladycats to a 49-41 victory over Albany Saturday in the championship game of the Albany tournament.

The win raises the state-ranked No. 5 Ladycats to 15-2.

Sarah Van Remmen was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player, and Billue, Taylor Nemeth, Alyssa McKennon and Courtney Flanagan were named to the all-tournament team.

“It was a great team effort,” Ladycats head coach Tony Raffaele said. “We only had seven players (Saturday) and everyone contributed.

“I thought Megan MacPherson and Chloe McGlaun played big roles for us (in the championship game).”

Also scoring for the Ladycats were Flanagan with 11 points, Nemeth and McKennon, each with five, McGlaun with three, and Van Remmen and MacPherson, each with two.

Van Remmen led on the boards with 16 rebounds.

Wildcats defeat Hawley for third

ALBANY –  Christopher Hoover and Cooper Barling each scored 11 points and Zarmorris Cannon added nine to lead the Santo Wildcats to a 52-42 win over Hawley Saturday afternoon in the third-place game of the Albany tournament.

Barling and Tim Long were selected to the all-tournament team.

Also scoring for the Wildcats were Shane Scott with five, Parker Conaway with four, and Colton Edwards, Jordan Edwards, Long and Andrew Watkins, each with two.

Lady Rabbits take third at Perrin

PERRIN – Sydney Wimberly scored 25 points and Tyler Wimberly added 14 as the pair led the Graford Lady Rabbits to a 39-19 win over Henrietta Midway Saturday in the third-place game of the Perrin tournament.

“This was a really good tournament for the girls, and I was happy with the result,” Lady Rabbits head coach Jarod Westmoreland said. “We were disappointed with the outcome Friday against Saint Jo because we thought we didn’t play our best game.

“I was not sure how we would play Saturday, but we had our best game of the year.”

Also scoring for the Lady Rabbits were Morgan Hendershott with eight points, Erika Chemello and Ashly Rogers, each with seven, Ashley Hay with six and Katie Rochelle with four.

Lady Hounds place third at Albany

ALBANY – Jacqueline Berumen scored 22 points and had five steals and Jayde Price added 20 points and a game-high 15 rebounds to lead the Strawn Lady Hounds to a 61-47 win over Cross Plains Saturday for third place at the Albany tournament.

  • FB Gordon at Strawn b8.jpg FWIW: Good, clean hate – Ranking the area's best rivalry games of the 2014 football season


    Football season is fast approaching and with it those glorious games between teams that love to hate each other, which we call rivalries.

    I'm speaking, of course, about sports hate – the only beautiful kind. It's the stuff built on history and tradition that inspires simply the fiercest and most entertaining games of every season.

    Palo Pinto County and the surrounding area have no shortage of fierce football rivalries.

    The University Interscholastic League's realignment often causes new rivalries to be born and old ones to be rekindled. But which rivalries are the area's very best for 2014? The one's you circle your calendar for and make sure you don't miss.

    I can think of at least 10.

    So, for what it's worth, here's my list of the area's best, can't-miss football rivalries of the upcoming 2014 season.
