Monday’s Sports

Simone Biles


Hawks 128 – 76ers 124

Clippers 126 – Mavericks 111

Los Angeles still has a team in the NBA after they sent the Dallas Mavericks home. The Clippers took Game 7 West First round with a series of 4-3.


Houston (33-26) 6 – Blue Jays (36-27) 3

Rays (38-23) 7 – Texas (23-38) 1


Simone Biles, at age 24, soared even higher. The gymnastics superstar claimed her record seventh U.S. title Sunday night as she delivered another stunning and easy performance that served little doubt. The pressure surrounding her bid to become the first woman to win back-to-back Olympic championships in more than 50 years is only pushing her to even greater heights.


The University of Texas will have quite the presence in Indianapolis at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials beginning on Sunday. Twelve athletes will represent the Forty Acres at the trials, and both current and former athletes will compete over the one-week trial period.


Last Thursday, in Rains’ 3A state title softball game, they beat Diboll 11-5. It was Rains’ second straight state title. For Diboll, it was the first-ever state championship game. Diboll’s Hailey Fuentes set a state record with eight hits in her two state tournament games. That is the most ever in a 3A state UIL softball state tournament.

Pleasant Grove takes on Stephenville in the early semifinal of the UIL state baseball tournament Wednesday at UFCU Disch-Falk Stadium.

The Hawks (33-8) and Yellow Jackets (28-8-1) will play at 1:00 pm. Pleasant Grove makes its tenth appearance in the state tournament, and Stephenville shows up for the first time.

North Lamar has assigned Jamie Allen as the Panther’s next head coach of the North Lamar boys basketball team. Allen has been with North Lamar for ten years, led the boys and girls golf teams, and served as an assistant coach for football and basketball programs.
