High School Sports Update Plus Rangers Drop Finale to Astros

 

Paris – Area high school volleyball teams were in tournament play over the weekend. At the Chisum Tournament, the Prairiland Lady Patriots fought their way to the championship round but fell to Leonard in three sets. The Rivercrest Lady Rebels won the Consolation Bracket. The Paris Lady Cats won the consolation championship in the Van Tournament as well, improving to 6-2 on the season.
Mount Pleasant – Area volleyball teams will be back in action today and tomorrow after a weekend of tournament play.  The Mt Pleasant Lady Tigers return home to play host to the Chisum Lady Mustangs this evening at Willie Williams Gym. Meanwhile, the Chapel Hill Lady Devils are back on the court tomorrow to host the New Boston Lady Lions and the Paul Pewitt Lady Brahmas host Atlanta Tuesday night.
Sulphur Springs – Area volleyball teams will be back in action today and tomorrow after a weekend of tournament play. The Sulphur Springs Lady Cats return to the outskirts of Dallas-Fort Worth to visit McKinney North on Tuesday. The Mt Vernon Lady Tigers return home to host the Hughes Springs Lady Mustangs tomorrow and the Miller Grove Lady Hornets take on the road to visit Trenton.
The Texas Rangers drop the finale against the Houston Astros yesterday afternoon, 2-1, but take two of three in the series. Adrian Beltre provided the lone run in yesterday’s pitchers’ duel. The Rangers are only 3.5 games back of an American League Wildcard spot and 15.5 games back of Houston in the AL West. Texas will continue their home stand tonight when they welcome in the Detroit Tigers to Globe Life Park in Arlington. Frist pitch [on KPLT 1490am] is set for 7:05.
The Dallas Cowboys fall in pre-season game number two to the L-A Rams, 13-10. Rookie quarterback, Cooper Rush, turned in a stellar second half performance throwing for 104 yards while completing 9 of 11 pass attempts and the lone Cowboys touchdown of the night connecting with the tight end, Rico Gathers, for a 25-yard strike. It was Gather’s second score in as many pre-season games. The rookie defensive end, Taco Charlton, also came up with a sack in the first half.
And 24-year-old, Justin Thomas, separated himself from the pack to win The PGA Championship this weekend.  Thomas finished eight under par for the win and collects winnings of $1.9 million dollars.
