Mineral Wells boys and girls track finish top five in Brownwood, weather cuts Graham meet short

The Mineral Wells track and field teams have been in action in two meets so far this month, posting great results in the first and performing strongly in the second before it was cut short by inclement weather.

 

First came the Bluebonnet Relays in Brownwood, March 7-8, during which the varsity girls netted a fifth-place team finish with 42 points and the varsity boys came away with third place and 113 points.

 

For the Lady Rams, Alex Pearcy was the golden girl, finishing first in the 1600 meters with a time of 5:39.36. She also finished second in the 800 meters at 2:27.86 and helped her teammates Kylie Burke, Raeann Rivera and Katlyn Rivera to a fourth-place finish in the 1600-meter relay in 4:24.12.

 

Meanwhile, the boys garnered four first-place finishes from three different athletes, all of whom are staples on the Mineral Wells basketball team. Junior Juvaree Sutton led the way, finishing first in the 110-meter Hurdles in 15.52 and the 300-meter Hurdles in 41.11. 

 

Rascellis Williams continued his dominance in the high jump, earning first with a 6-foot-4 leap. He finished third behind Sutton in the 300-meter Hurdles, with a time of 42.94 and joined Sutton, Omery Trevino and Elijah Jefferson on a third-place 1600-meter Relay team that posted a 3:41.06 mark. 

 

Williams and Trevino also ran the 400-meter Relay with Roy Edla and Zechariah Stanton in 45.15 for third place.

 

Junior Biren Clardy was the final Ram to net first place in an event when he owned the long jump with a distance of 20-foot-8. Bounding Biren also nabbed a silver finish in the triple jump with 41-foot-8 and finished just two inches under Williams with a 6-foot-2, second-place high jump.

 

Second, and most recently, were the Possum Kingdom Relays in Graham on March 15. The varsity boys completed seven events and the varsity girls, five, before lightning and rain ended the meet prematurely.

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

    By CLINT FOSTER

    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.
