Lady Cubs wrap season

Clifton girls fall in finale to Groesbeck

By Brett Voss

Although the 2016-17 Texas high school girls basketball did not turn out quite like they had hoped, the Clifton Lady Cubs saw several seniors rise to the occasion while some young players showed promise for the future.

Even while playing without sophomore sensation Sydney Harris since the holiday break due to a season-ending injury, the Lady Cubs stayed in the District 19-3A playoff chase until late in the season. But while Clifton refused to give in, the Lady Cubs could not find a way to win some close games down the stretch.

Cubs close out season on positive note

Clifton boys basketball post first district victory

By Brett Voss

When going through a rough season, some teams find themselves forced to look for silver linings rather than the win column. But for the Clifton Cub boys basketball team, they found themselves staring at both last week.

After holding playoff-bound Groesbeck under 100 points for the first time in three games during an 89-51 loss last Tuesday, the Cubs celebrated Senior Night at home with an exciting 61-52 victory over post-season contender Whitney last Friday night, registering their first District 19-3A win of the season and snapping an 11-game losing streak.

Lady Cubs officially eliminated from race

by Brett Voss 

Despite facing the kind of adversity that might lead some teams to fold in the tents, the Clifton Lady Cubs continued to battle down to the bitter end.

Losing two hard fought district games last week, the Lady Cubs (4-9 in District 19-3A, 17-15 overall) wrapped up the regular season at Groesbeck (3-7) Tuesday after press time. Marlin (12-1, 24-9), West (10-2, 16-8), McGregor (9-2, 17-8) and Whitney (8-5, 11-17) clinched the district’s four post-season berths.

After losing to district-leading Marlin, 63-47, last Tuesday, the Lady Cubs lost a heartbreaker, 33-31, to second place West last Friday in their home finale.

Clifton boys look to close out season

by Brett Voss 

While the District 19-3A boys basketball race looks like it will go down to the wire in determining its four post-season berths, the Clifton Cubs go into the final week of the regular season just looking to get in the win column.

After losing to co-league leading Marlin, 51-39, last Tuesday, the Cubs fell to third place West, 59-46, last Friday to remain winless in district and extending their losing streak to 10 straight.

Following a road game in Groesbeck Tuesday after press time, Clifton (0-11 in district, 8-20 overall) will host Whitney (6-5, 13-13) in the home finale Friday before closing out the regular season at McGregor (9-2, 16-7) Feb. 14.

Meridian girls ousted from playoff contention

by Brett Voss 

Facing a must-win situation, the Meridian Lady Jackets came out ready to play last Friday night. But it wasn’t enough to keep their post-season hopes alive.

Despite jumping out to an early lead, the Lady Jackets could not maintain the momentum as the playoff- bound Goldthwaite Lady Eagles rallied to hand Meridian a 45-27 loss, eliminating the Lady Jackets from playoff berth contention in District 10-2A.

“This game officially knocked us out of playoff chase,” Meridian girls basketball head coach Chris Hicks said. “We played a good first half. But when Goldthwaite switched to zone, our lack of outside shooting made it extremely difficult to score. Our defense was solid all night though.”
