Meridian sunk by Pirates, 33-6

By Brett Voss

To say the Meridian Yellowjackets have been knocked out of sync would be an understatement. But determining excatly what did it remains somewhat of a mystery.

Or could it be that they played the last game and a half with four starters on the sideline with injuries.

By Brett Voss
 
Unfortunately for the Clifton Cubs last Saturday afternoon, they dominated the Marlin Bullldogs in every way except the scoreboard. But that didn’t keep the Cubs from battling until the final seconds of their District 10-3A, Division II showdown. In a rain-delayed game moved to Waco ISD Stadium, the Cubs spent the entire game doing everything but score against Marlin’s stingy defense.

Meridian runners shine at district

By Brett Voss

For Meridian senior Latham Hensley, every cross country race could be his last. And the way he’s been running this season, he doesn’t want it to end.
