Who’s the boss? Davis and ‘Hoss’ Brownsboro teen takes top steer prize By Rich Flowers NEWS EDITOR

Taylor Davis of the Brownsboro FFA and his steer, “Hoss,” were an eye-catching pair at the Henderson County Livestock show and came away with the Grand Championship on Friday. The 1,255-pound entry, who almost matched Davis’s orange -plaid shirt, was judged best of the 50 steers in the show. Davis,

a Brownsboro junior, took first place in Class III, which also produced the Reserve Grand Champion, Grant Hirsch of Horizon 4H. Davis’s steer sold for $8,500 at the premium action on Saturday. Hirsch’s reserve grand earned a $5,000 payday. The Friday night show was Davis’ first time in the big Friday night event. “I was a little bit nervous at

first, but we worked through it,” Davis said. “I’ve shown pigs the last three or four years and game birds, but this is my first time for a steer.” The judge for the event was Gary Clayton, AgriLife Extension Agent for Wise County. He had high praise for the winner. “The steer out of Class III has a really long neck,”

Link to recent burglaries probed

By Kathi Nailling

By Rich Flowers



The Athens Police Department answered numerous calls for break-ins and thefts over the weekend scattered around the city, and arrested two teens Saturday who are being investigated as having been involved in recent burglaries and criminal-mischief incidents. APD Lt. Michael Davis said the suspects are 14-year-old boys who were picked up in relation to a burglary at Lona Mauk’s State Farm Insurance in the 700 block of East Corsicana Street. The pair has been turned over to Henderson County Juvenile Detention authorities. APD dispatch received a call at 2:34 a.m., Saturday, reporting that an alarm had sounded at the State Farm Agency. Officer Marshall Passons responded to the location along with Cpl. Dana Dykes and Sgt. Jason McEntire. The officers found the teens inside the building. “We think it’s going to tie in, and clear up a lot of other criminal mischief in this area,” Davis said. “We’re not sure yet, but we think we might tie them into other burglaries.” Davis said the suspects are not likely to be behind the recent string of air-conditioner thefts in the area, at least not alone. “They would need to have some kind of vehicle for that,” Davis said. In addition to the State Farm burglary, three air conditioner condensers were reported taken on Saturday from Home Health Hospice at 1315 S. Palestine St. The owner said the units had been replaced just eight months ago. Also on Saturday, officials of the Air Force Recruiting Office at 113 S. Murchison St. told police that criminal mischief had been done to the back door of

Title town Sevens are wild as Lady Cards claim crown again By Joe Elerson STAFF WRITER

SALINA, Kan. — If there was one thing that stood out on Trinity Valley Community College’s road to its seventh NJCAA women’s national title on Saturday night, it was one particular number. Seven. First-year head coach Elena Lovato’s Lady Cardinals won the seventh women’s basketball national title in school history over the Central Arizona Vaqueras, 83-71, at the Bicentennial Center on Kurt Budke Court. It was the Lady Cards’ second title in as many years.

The Lady Cards also had their seventh player claim tournament MVP honors in sophomore Shannon Smith, who scored 14 points in the championship game. Lovato ran her head coaching record to 77-7 overall. Oh, by the way, the game started as 7 p.m. Smith joins Shalonda Ennis (1994), Jennifer Sposato (1996), Betty Lennox (1997), Yalika Barnes (1999), Yolanda Jones (2004) and Keuna Flax (2012) as Lady Cards who have won tournament MVP honors.

“There is so much more going with this whole story,” Lovato said after the win. “I feel like the whole “Chasing Seven” thing was special and then we played the game at 7 p.m. and someone told me that my heading coaching record is 77-7. I almost feel like we were supposed to have had that forfeit so we could end the year with a bunch of seven’s ...” The No. 1 ranked team in the land and the No. 1 seed in the tournament finished the year with a 36-1 record. TVCC’s only loss came via a forfeit to Weatherford after the team was not able to field a starting five for their game.

Mabank Police Officer Mike Garner died from apparent natural causes Monday morning, according to Mabank Police Chief Kyle McAfee. McAfee said Garner did not show up for work on Monday, which was very unusual for him not to notify someone. He Garner said the police went to his home, and found him. Chief McAfee said “Officer Garner had not been feeling well, not with anything serious, like a cold or alergies.” Garner had been a familiar face around Cedar Creek Lake since the mid 1980s. He started his law enforcement career in Duncanville in 1979. In the early 1980s, he moved to Henderson County to take the role of Texas Alcohol, Beverage Control officer. Following his stint with TABC, he was with Gun Barrel City Police Department. Garner moved to the Mabank Police Department in 2000. Garner was reassigned as Mabank Independent School District resource officer in 2004. McAfee said he worked very closely with the school. Garner had been teaching a class on law enforcement at Mabank ISD. McAfee posted a message on the Mabank Police Department Facebook page that said, “Mike was very knowledgeable in the law-enforcement field, and was instrumental in the schools. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.” “He was my son's favorite teacher,” said Ruth van der Plaus, who's son, Oliver, was a student of Garner’s. “Oliver is very upset. He just couldn't believe it.” Funeral arrangements are pending with Eubanks Funeral Home in Mabank.

New affirmative action case at Supreme Court illegal under Supreme Court rulings from the late 1960s and early 1980s that prohibit placing special burdens on minority groups that want to bring about changes in laws and policies. The court said that forcing opponents of the ban to mount their own long, expensive campaign through the ballot box to protect affirmative action amounts to different, and unequal, treatment. That burden "undermines the Equal Protection Clause's guarantee that all citizens ought to have equal access to the tools of political change," the court said. By way of example, the court said that children of university alumni remain free to lobby lawmakers and university officials to adopt policies to take family ties into account in admissions. The 6th Circuit divided along ideological lines, with its more liberal judges in the majority. Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette asked the Supreme Court to review the 6th Circuit's ruling. "Entrance to our great colleges and universities must be based upon merit, and I remain optimistic moving forward in our fight for equality, fairness and rule of law at our nation's highest court," Schuette said Monday. In the Texas case, a white student who was denied admission to the University of Texas is suing to overturn the school's use of race among many factors to fill out its incoming freshman classes. The bulk of the slots go to Texans who graduated in the top 10 percent of their high school classes. The Michigan case is Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, 12-682.

Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is broadening its examination of affirmative action by adding a case about Michigan's effort to ban consideration of race in college admissions. The justices already were considering a challenge to the University of Texas program that takes account of race, among many factors, to fill remaining spots in its freshman classes. The Texas case has been argued, but not yet decided. The court on Monday said it would add the Michigan case, which focuses on the 6-year-old voter-approved prohibition on affirmative action and the appeals court ruling that overturned the ban. The new case will be argued in the fall. A decision in the Texas case is expected by late June. The dispute over affirmative action in Michigan has its roots in the 2003 Supreme Court decision that upheld the use of race as a factor in university admissions. That case concerned the University of Michigan law school. In response to the court's 5-4 decision in that case, affirmative action opponents worked to put a ballot measure in front of voters to amend the state constitution to outlaw preferential treatment on the basis of race and other factors in education, as well as government hiring and contracting. In November 2006, 58 percent of Michigan voters approved the measure. Civil rights groups sued to block the provision the day after the vote. In November, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals voted 8-7 to invalidate the ban as it applies to college admissions. It did not address hiring or contracting. The appeals court said the constitutional amendment is

Not happy with the man I married Chicken Soup for the Soul Making friends Annie’s with my kitchen Mailbox

Dear Annie: When I married three years ago, my hubby and I were best friends. Then his mother moved to town, and everything went downhill. My in-laws disrespected and trashed my rental home. I was hurt that they would do this, because I was extremely nice and financially generous to them. Ever since, she has been working to turn everyone against me, including my husband. If he doesn’t do what she wants, she makes him feel guilty. She has put so many nasty ideas into his head that he has turned into a different person. It’s not only her. His entire family is selfish, uneducated and manipulative, and they have a very “macho” mentality. I don’t much care for this new version of the man I married. Do I give him time and hope he changes back? Or is this simply who he was all along and I was wrong about him? -- Beth in Baltimore Dear Beth: We think this is the version of your husband that is most familiar to him. When he is around his family, he reverts to type. It doesn’t mean he can’t behave differently if he

is motivated enough, but he has to recognize the family dynamic and assert himself. It may require spending less time around his relatives, and he may be unwilling to do that. The real question is whether he likes being the guy he is now or wants to be the man you married. Talk to him about it, and if necessary, get counseling. Dear Annie: When company comes and snacks are put out, I always include a small spoon so that treats like candy and nuts can be removed without a person touching the entire contents. But many guests don’t get the point. One person came in saying he had been suffering from the flu and was still feeling under the weather, so we should keep our distance. He then proceeded to pick through the nut bowl, even though there was a la-

dle in it. I threw the rest of the nuts in the trash and hoped other guests hadn’t been contaminated. Please remind people that their hands don’t belong in a shared bowl unless they’ve just scrubbed for surgery. Thanks. -Staying Healthy Dear Healthy: Many people, sick or well, don’t consider that sticking their fingers into a shared bowl of snacks can transmit the germs on their hands to the next person.

Another option is to serve snacks that do not require that your guests reach into the same receptacle. Dear Annie: I started to cry when I read the letter from “Heartbroken in New York,” whose husband drank. I made the choice to end my marriage of 21 years because I could no longer take the Jekyll and Hyde man I was married to. Nothing I did was “right.” I was “boring and unspontaneous.” The truth was, I was being sensible.

He would drink, decide I was dull and then leave to go to a bar. Many of our fights were because I hid the car keys from him. Eventually, he stopped coming home and went directly to the bar. I finally asked him to leave and not return unless he agreed to counseling. It was then that he admitted he is gay. I was relieved. I thought he would be happier now that he was being honest. But he is the same mean jerk to his partner, and he is still drinking. I now wish I had left him years before. I did an injustice to my kids by exposing them to his verbal abuse for so long. It’s better to be alone than to have someone who treats you like this. -The Grass Is Greener Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Recipe of the Day BBQ Chuck Roast

By Dana Hinders “Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.” — Harriet van Horne ————— A mother cooks for her family. ————— If you asked my son what his mom does best, you’d probably get an answer that relates to cooking. When his kindergarten teacher had the kids draw pictures of their moms as part of a Mother’s Day gift, he drew me in the kitchen baking a birthday cake. For about six months, he kept inviting all of the neighborhood children over to sample my banana bread muffins -- even on the days when I hadn’t actually baked any muffins for breakfast! I have a note taped to my refrigerator that says: “Deer Mom. Yor fud is gud.” If you happened to ask me what I thought I did best, cooking would be pretty far down the list. Growing up, I viewed cooking as something hopelessly old-fashioned and not relevant to the life of the modern working woman. When I moved into my first apartment, I memorized the pizza delivery guy’s phone number. Until we started having trouble coming up with money to pay all our bills, I figured restaurant meals were a well-deserved reward at the end of a long day. Why slave over a hot stove when Visa and MasterCard can come to your rescue? Now I cook from necessity. Hungry family + tight budget = being forced to become friends with my kitchen. When I made my son’s birthday cake, it was because I didn’t have the cash for a fancy bakery cake. When I made the muffins, it was because throwing away all the overripe bananas seemed like a ridiculous waste given our rather limited grocery budget. The meal that inspired the note on the refrigerator was actually an invented dish made from leftovers and random cans of stuff from my pantry. One day, after getting particularly frustrated in the kitchen by a recipe that wouldn’t turn out right and a family that wanted food NOW, I decided to ask my son why he thought his mom was such a good cook. He thought about it for a while, furrowing his forehead as if I had asked him to find the solution to world peace. “Because you love us,” he finally said as he reached over to give me a kiss on the cheek. Yup. That works for me.

WWE helps launch Superstars for Sandy Relief Associated Press NEW YORK — WWE is joining with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Hollywood celebrities and professional athletes to launch Superstars for Sandy Relief. Fans can bid on hundreds of items in an online auction, including attending a NASCAR race with WWE superstar John Cena, meeting Tyra Banks on the set of “America’s Next Top Model,” or pitching entrepreneurial ideas to Mark Cuban. The auction began March 25 and closes April 9 on Paul Levesque, executive vice president of talent and live events, better known in the ring as Triple H, says he can’t think of a better way to celebrate WWE’s annual WrestleMania event than using the group’s global reach to assist those in need. Wrestlemania will be held April 7 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. “It’s like a homecoming for us, and since there’s still a lot of devastation, we felt the best thing we could do is reach out to not only our own superstars to our celebrity contacts and our sports contacts. There’s a lot of people that are fans of the WWE in those worlds,” Levesque said.

Lawsuit sets up test of Texas gun range law Associated Press KAUFMAN, Texas — A pending lawsuit could be the first test of a two-year-old Texas law that's supposed to limit suits against outdoor gun ranges. The Dallas Morning News reports that a lawsuit filed by Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland alleges that county residents near a range operated by a former Army Ranger are "in immediate risk." The range was shut down after the DA obtained a temporary injunction. Adam Morgan, who did tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, opened the range on 100 acres of land. He's fighting the DA's suit. A trial is set for September. It could impact how courts interpret a law designed to prevent nuisance suits against outdoor gun ranges, which often draw complaints from neighbors over noise and safety. Kaufman is 33 miles southeast of Dallas.

BY JACQUELINE BIGAR HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, March 27, 2013: This year you will grow through handling negotiations and learning to accept that others also can be right. This process might be challenging at times, but your self-discipline will strengthen and you'll learn patience as a result. If you are single, the world is your oyster. You will meet the right person when you least expect it. If you are attached, the two of you will learn ways that allow both of you to be right. LIBRA has the same issues you do, but he or she makes different choices. ARIES (March 21-April 19) ####You have your hands full juggling different issues. Everyone has an opinion, and you seem to be the person who offers stability. Your resourcefulness finds ways to come to an agreement with which nearly everyone is content. Tonight: Don't lose your temper -- take a walk instead. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ### You have a lot of ground to cover. Pressure builds, which creates more back-and-forth between you and someone else. You can't sit on your anger much longer, as it is likely to emerge, no matter what you do. Don't allow others' pressure to faze you. Tonight: Relax at home. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) #### You could feel pulled in two different directions. Your awareness of the different possibilities will help you decide. You might not get others' support for a decision, but follow through on it anyway -- you know what is best for you. Tonight: Spice up your life. CANCER (June 21-July 22) ##You are likely to feel the impact of today's Full Moon. Lie low if you can, as it will be more aggravating if you are out dealing with others. A loved one decides that it's his or her way or the highway. Know when to pull back and not get involved in a power struggle. Tonight: At home. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ### You could feel unusually pressured by people seeking you out left and right. You might encounter the unexpected with a loved one. A partner suddenly could veer in a new direction. Avoid someone in your day-to-day life who often challenges you. Tonight:

Talk up a storm. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ### Your spending could spiral out of control without self-discipline. Certain items might be too hard to pass up. Your creativity will emerge as you try to find a different way to get what you want without breaking the bank. Your fiery side emerges with a partner. Tonight: Plan on taking it easy. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ##### You are full of energy, and seem to be the least affected by the Full Moon. Your ability to step in and make a situation work comes to the forefront. Unusual news from someone at a distance could have you pondering different possibilities. Tonight: Whatever makes you happy. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ## Much is going on behind the scenes. Every time you go off and try to do something, it seems as if you hit some kind of complication. Don't push to have your way. Do what you feel is necessary, and only that. You laugh, and someone will lighten up. Tonight: Off on your own. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ### You see the value in nearly every suggestion or idea. The problem is deciding which one to choose when

there is so much focus on whose idea is right. Figure out what you want rather than what is most popular. Everything will work out. Tonight: Where friends are. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ### Keep reaching out to someone you care about, even though this person often creates tension. A situation might force you to take the lead. Keep smiling and remain upbeat. You could be surprised by what is going on behind the scenes. Tonight: Could go late. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) #### You might want to detach, as it could be difficult to come to an agreement with someone who is determined to be right. Let different opinions come forward without taking any of them personally; otherwise, communication could take on a negative tone. Tonight: At a favorite spot. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) #### Deal with someone's need to be in control. A power play is best left alone. On a superficial level, this person might win. On a deeper level, however, victory will be yours. A friend suddenly could reverse direction or do something differently. Tonight: Be a team.

Old hospital zoning approved Community Calendar Thursday, March 28

By Rich Flowers NEWS EDITOR

The Athens City Council opened the door Monday for an assisted living and retirement housing facility to be constructed at the site of the old Henderson County Memorial Hospital. The council approved a site plan for the property at 405 Linsey St., and also agreed to change its zoning designation from office to Multi-Family Residential-5, Specific Use Provision, but not before the owner Babit, LLC made adjustments to the request it originally brought before the council Feb. 25. “What has changed my attitude about the whole thing is that the change has been made by those applying for this zoning,” Councilman Aubrey Jones said. “According to the wording of the ordinance, at least 80 percent of the residents of this facility must be 55 years of age or older.” The zoning ordinance passed Monday states that the city will grant Babit, LLC a Certificate of

cific-use permit attached. After a discussion, the council voted to return the matter to the Planning and Zoning Commission to add a specific use provision to the Multi-Family 5 designation. The Planning and Zoning Commission approved the change on March 19, and sent it back to the city council. By the time the matter came back before the council on Monday, plans to use the facility to house veterans had been scrapped. Ron Boone of Boone and Boone Construction said now that the zoning hurdle cleared, demolition of the property can begin soon, and construction could get underway in about six months. Hambrick, who was not present at the meeting Monday due to an injury, has estimated that the facility could eventually house up to 300 residents. The cost of gutting and rebuilding the structure that closed more than 25 years ago, and building the assisted living center will be $6 million to $7 million, Hambrick estimates.

Occupancy until Babit, LLC, receives approval from all federal, state and local authorities with jurisdiction over the property, includeing the Texas Department for Aging and Disability Services. The ordinance amending the zoning also states that the property shall not be used for a drug rehabilitation or mental-health facility. On Feb. 25, Babit owner Kevin Hambrick requested that the zoning on the property be changed from office to Multi-Family 5. Hambrick outlined his plans to remodel the property into a $50,000 square-foot assistedliving facility for male and female military veterans. The request raised questions from city officials at the meeting, and several citizens in the audience. City Administrator Pam Burton said the surrounding property owners had been given notice that the site was being rezoned as an assisted living facility before she was informed that it would be a facility for veterans. Burton said she would prefer for the property to be rezoned with a spe-

Opening lead: Nine of ♣ At duplicate pairs, declarer will go to great lengths to secure an overtrick, even to the extent of endangering the contract. The defenders will strive equally for an undertrick. This deal is from a National Open Pairs Championship. North’s jump to two notrump showed 13-15 points and a balanced hand. South’s four clubs was the Gerber Convention, asking for aces. When that located just one ace in partner’s hand, South settled in the small slam. Although six no trump could be claimed, South had no way to determine that 12 tricks were there for the taking, and so chose the safer

suit slam. Since leading from an honor was too risky, West chose to attack with a club. There were 12 fast tricks available — seven diamonds, four clubs and the ace of hearts. However, no duplicate maven would be satisfied by just taking 12 tricks when there was play for an overtrick. The simple way to 13 tricks was via the heart finesse after discarding the jack of spades on the long club. But declarer decided that it could do no harm to postpone the finesse as long as possible. Instead, South won the club in hand and ran all seven diamond tricks, discarding three spades and a heart from the table, followed by three more club tricks, ending in dummy — declarer coming down A 3 of hearts in hand and Q J in dummy. The question was whether to try the heart finesse or settle for 12 tricks. Although it was highly unlikely that West had come down to a bare king of hearts, declarer did not take into account West’s defensive skills. On the run of diamonds the defender casually discarded four hearts, a club and a spade and, when the last club was cashed, West tossed the ace of spades! Convinced that West’s last two cards were hearts, declarer thought the finesse could be taken safely. When it lost to the now bare king, West had a spade to cash for down one!

A - This is partly a matter of style. There are those who believe that you should not raise partner’s one-level response without four-card support. They will bid two diamonds and then have a problem if partner then bids two hearts. We do not like placing such a restriction on opener, and we would raise to two spades immediately. If there is a game in the hand, spades is the most likely strain. Q 2 - Neither vulnerable, as South, you hold: ♠KJ62♥ 964♦ AKQ4♣65

hand is on the border between these two actions and, while we would force to game with the direct raise, we don’t fault you if you take the pessimistic view and bid two no trump. Q 4 - As South, vulnerable, you hold: ♠ Void ♥ 7 3 2 ♦ A 8 4 3 ♣ A Q 10 9 8 5

The bidding has proceeded:

NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST Dbl Rdbl Pass 1♣ ? Pass 1♠

What do you bid now?

A - Although you have only 10 high-card points, your hand is rich in playing potential. The way to advise your partner that you are interested in game at the very least, with the possibility of bigger things, is to cuebid two spades now. Do so. Q 5 - As South, vulnerable, you hold: ♠Void♥ KQ9♦ AKQ1054♣AQJ5

What is your opening bid?

A - We know you have an eight-card heart fit and would like to tell partner of it, but as dummy your hand might be worth only nine points because of the lead through your spade holding! Bid two no trump. Won’t you be thrilled with your choice should partner raise to three no trump?

A - If you play that all two-bids are forcing, you are way ahead of the game. Open two diamonds and rebid three clubs. If you play weak two-bids with two clubs as your only strong bid, opening two clubs and getting a two-diamond weakness response makes it difficult to manage your hand. Open one diamond, planning to jump shift in clubs at your next turn.

A - Partner’s reverse bid is forcing to two no trump or three of his first-bid suit. If you do not want to proceed beyond three of opener’s first-bid suit, bid two no trump now and pass should partner correct to three hearts. A direct raise to three hearts is game-forcing. Your

A - Your hand is far too strong for a jump to four spades. Start by bidding three diamonds, then raise spades at your next turn. Don’t worry about getting support for one of your minors. You can always correct to spades at the same level.

Spring Open House

Workshop to be held at TFFC There will be a workshop held at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Conservation Center that will focus on cattle production and feral hog control and how that relates to water quality. This is an important workshop because Catfish Creek has been impaired (polluted beyond limits for designated use) since 2006 for low levels of dissolved oxygen (important for fish) and since 2010 for high levels of bacteria. Catfish Creek designated uses are aquatic life use and recreation. This could become an important issue because about 8-13 years after a

stream is listed for impaired, law requires the state to take action to get that stream off the list, including regulation if necessary. Trinity Waters and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service wants to raise awareness to this issue and engage landowners in the area to take proactive measure that can get this stream off the list. The workshop will be discussing a lot of these methods including Lone Star Healthy Streams. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, April 3 from 1-5pm.

Repeat? Complete Lady Cards defeat Central Arizona 83-71 to defend its national title By Joe Elerson STAFF WRITER

SALINA, Kan. — The No. 1 ranked Trinity Valley Community College Lady Cardinals capped out their chasing seven campaign with a national title 83-71 over the Central Arizona Vaqueras Saturday night at the Bicentennial Center. The win capped off a 36-1 season, with their only loss coming on a forfeit against Weatherford in December. First year coach Elena Lovato was speechless following their win on Kurt Budke court, the former head coach for the TVCC Lady Cardinals. “I honestly am speechless,” Lovato said. “I thought all along that I had the group of kids that could get it done but I knew that it was almost like a Godsend and a plan that he wanted me back in Athens. I felt like he wanted me to be with the community and with the college. At that point, I think I was led to the right kids and it is like a big puzzle when you are out recruiting trying to find the right pieces and the puzzle just fit from the coaching staff to the players and the managers to trainers. It is amazing to be around people that you truly genuinely care about.” This was the seventh title in 10 trips for the Lady Cards but the road was not easy in the title game. During the first half, the Lady Cardinals jumped out to nine point leads but using their feisty defensive pressure to frustrate Central Arizona. During a three minute stretch, TVCC got baskets from Savannah Carter, a 3pointer from Adut Bulgak, a steal and layup from Shlonte Allen and a free throw from Roddricka Patton for the 19-10 lead with 11:30 remaining in the

first half of play. The tournament win was the fifth straight year Patton has made a high school or national title game in her short career. “Nobody was going to stop us tonight,” Patton said after cutting down the net. “This just feels amazing right now winning the title. It was also amazing to finish the season with the record that we had. I am definitely speechless right now.” The Lady Cards received another solid game from tournament MVP Shannon Smith — as she was determined to finish her junior college career with a national title. The sophomore guard led the Cardinals in scoring in three of their four games. Smith shot 52.8 percent from the field and averaged 22 points per game during the tournament. She finished her career with 14 points, four rebounds, five assists and two steals. “It is awesome and I could not do it without my teammates,” Smith said following the win. “I love those girls and I wish I could take all of them to Michigan with me. Very special and I swear to God that I wish I could take them with me. I am glad that we were able to get the national championship.” The Lady Cards looked to be in the driver’s seat heading into the locker room as Smith drained a jumper from just inside the 3-point line to give them a 46-33 lead. Lovato said the coaches knew Central Arizona would not go home without a fight. “We wanted 20 more minutes and the score was 0-0 at the half,” Lovato said. “We wanted to come out

there and have the same fire and defensive pressure that we exerted in the first half. Central Arizona was not going to go home and that is a good group of kids.” In the second half, the Vaqueras outscored TVCC, 38-37, and cut the lead to four points at, 65-61, on an old-fashioned three point play from Joymesia Howard with 9:18 remaining. “It is a game of runs and coach is always telling us that,” Smith said. “We already knew that if we were to get down we could pick each other back up and could out and win.” TVCC was able to outscore Central Arizona, 18-10, the remainder of the game after the basket by Howard. With 3:44 remaining, the Lady Cardinals put the nail in the coffin as Patton found Carter wide open for the layup as time was running out on the shot clock for the, 77-65, lead. Lovato said winning back-to-back titles with a new team was definitely worth it this season. “It is an amazing blessing. They say this is Cardinal Gym North,” Lovato said with a laugh. “We have an amazing crowd with the fans and cheerleaders and it is definitely a great tradition and following with a lot of passion here being Kurt Budke’s court. We stopped and shot around at Oklahoma State to try and get that spiritual vibe rolling for us and I am excited and speechless.” Trinity Valley was led in scoring by Allen with 22 points, while teammates Henderson scored 14 and Bulgak had a near double double with 10 points and six rebounds.


TVCC point guard Shannon Smith was named tournament MVP as she led the Cardinals in scoring in three of their four games. Smith shot 52.8 percent from the field and averaged 22 points per game during the tournament. She scored 14 points in their 83-71 win over Central Arizona in the championship game.

AHS fends off Van's late push, hold on for 7-6 win From Staff Reports The Athens Hornets survived a sixth inning run by the Van Vandals on Friday as they won, 7-6, at Hornet Field.
