End of the road • Trojans speed past taller Highland for 53-45 victory

March 2, 2014

AUSTIN — The Highland girls basketball team knew what it was up against on Friday when it faced a Calvert squad whose considerable speed and ability to create turnovers with its wall-to-wall defensive pressure compensated for a big size disadvantage against the Lady Hornets.
What Highland could not have expected, however, was the kind of shooting performance delivered by Calvert’s Jaylonn Walker.

Clift no-hits Pampa in WBC opener

February 28, 2014

It doesn’t take many runs to give James Clift a comfortable lead when he pitches against Pampa.
He needed just one when he threw the opening game for Sweetwater’s baseball team Thursday at its newly named Wes Bishop Wood Bat Classic at Sportsman’s Park. But Clift got four runs while pitching a no-hitter against Pampa, the first of his varsity career.
Clift is now 3-0 over Pampa in the past year. This was his second straight shutout since last March when he pitched Sweetwater to a 6-2 win over Pampa at the 2013 Wood Bat Classic.
