Before Sunday’s loss, questions were swirling about the job status of Dallas coach Mike McCarthy. Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones, now 81 and a 28th season removed from the franchise’s last Super Bowl appearance, would not get into what might or might not happen with McCarthy as Jones stood outside the locker room after the game. The end came to the Green Bay Packers’ 48-32 victory over the Cowboys.

HIGH SCHOOL

Sulphur Springs LadyCats Scoccer hosted a tournament and won the championship game. Sulphur Springs scored 17 goals and none over five games.

Chapel Hill honored Lindal Alston as the 2024 Hall of Fame Spotling. Alston worked at Chapel Hill ISD from 1998 to 2009. During her time there, she served as the head girls’ basketball, softball, and volleyball coach and athletic director. In addition to her school roles, Alston was a volleyball referee for the last 39 years. Alston has many fond memories of her time at CHISD, but one that stands out is the community support. “During the 2004-05 season, we had a very competitive rivalry with Hughes Springs, and at both home and away games, we had to turn people away because of the fire code! We set up a screen in the Multipurpose building, and people could watch the game. We Both advanced to the Regional Tournament that year, recalled Alston.

Amber Norris, Superintendent of Cooper ISD, with Athletics Director Rod Castorena, Avery ISD’s Athletic Director Brett Harp, and Coordinator John Bell, notified its fans that their schools could remove fans from the premises and prohibited them from attending future contests due to unruly behavior. They added that removing a fan from the game can result in the district receiving disciplinary action from the Texas Association of Sports Officials (TASO) and the University of Interscholastic League (UIL). After three offenses, TASO could refuse to officiate any future games. That could result in the forfeit of games because of no officials.
