HIGH EXPECTATIONS

◗ With back-

to-back state championships for the Aledo Bearcats, many are hoping for a three-peat. The heat is on. By Mark Goodson The Community News

Aledo’s run of success is far from over. The gem of the athletic program – football – sets the standard. The stateof-the-art facilities say it all. The Texas-shaped monuments are impressive, recognizing the three state titles of 1998, 2009, 2010. It’s easy to spot the home side of the stadium with the huge AHS set in the combination of orange and black seats. It’s a program that is state recognized and expects big things every day. Just how tough is it to keep up those expectations? “I don’t really look at it like that,’’ said Aledo coach Tim Buchanan. “I’m a coach. I look at it as a coach. When we are out there, I look at what everybody is doing. I look at what players are doing wrong and what coaches are doing wrong and I do things to correct it. It’s all about perfection.’’ Perfection is 16-0 when it comes to high school football in 2011. Aledo is well versed in what it takes to win football games. Sixteen and 0 is perfection. Playoff dates in November and December are expected. This year, they’ll win again because the team is stacked with talent on both sides of the football. This is the senior season for 36 players, including 14 that start. A lot of the

attention will continue to go toward Johnathan Gray, the running back that scored eight touchdowns in his last outing against LaMarque in a 69-34 victory in the Class 4A Division II title game. “He can go out and score nine,’’ Buchanan said. Buchanan and his staff are all about getting better and peaking at the right time. This year’s team will be balanced. The offense will be effective running and throwing with quarterback Matt Bishop returning for his third year as the starter. “You definitely go in confident,’’ said Bishop, who has 31 games under his belt as the starter. “I’ve played for a while and we expect to play well.’’ He took over that role when he entered the Weatherford game and led scoring drives on four of his five possessions.

Varsity Bearcats 2011 The Bearcats haven’t lost with Bishop as quarterback. With Gray as the primary option, Bishop can never go wrong. “It’s crazy,’’ Bishop said. “It’s like people wondering what it was like playing with Emmitt Smith when he was in high school. It’s incredible watching the things he does…We’ve only had one of two handoffs that we’ve messed up and I’ve probably handed it to him 500 times. That’s not bad.’’ Good things happen with Gray touching the football. He carried the ball 3,561 times for 3,221 yards and 59 touchdowns last season. Bishop had a hand in on almost 3,500 yards and 38 touchdowns. The team returns eight offensive starters and five on defense. “I’m a defensive coach,’’ Buchanan said. “Besides Johnathan Gray, we’re going to have our next best 11 athletes on the field on defense.’’ Buchanan has preached defense since he arrived in Aledo in 1993. It took three seasons before the playoffs were the reward. In 1996, Aledo started its current string of playoffs and have built a program from the ground floor. “The big difference now is the coaching,’’ Buchanan said. “When I first came here, they had had five coaches in four years. One of them stayed for two days.

I couldn’t get anybody to coach. Nobody wanted to come here. I was getting people that couldn’t find a job or the young guys…Now I have some great coaches.’’ Assistant head coach Steve Wood is the defensive coordinator, a position he shares with Daniel Seay. Robby Jones and Blake Rosson are co-offensive coordinators on a varsity staff of 11 coaches. The team’s defense is led by safety Dayne Davis (118 tackles) and linebacker Gunner Johnson (19 tackles). Other returning starters are linebacker Jace Vincent, end Jaylen Hill and cornerback James Place. The offensive returners are Gray (three year letterman, headed for UT after this season), Bishop, tackle Michael Wilson (returning all-state performer), tackle Latham Johnson, guard Hayden Lambert, fullback Parker Bradham and receivers Michael Mann and Willie Gibson. “I have some great receivers,’’ Bishop said. “Willie (Gibson) is really coming on and Mann has always been a bigplay receiver.’’ Senior Parker Bradham is also an option as a 6-foot, 207 pounder at tight end. The offensive line is strong at the tackle position with Wilson and Latham. “Latham has been just killing peo-

ple,’’ said Bishop, who also plays basketball and baseball for the Bearcats. “He’ll hit you. He’s going to have a great season.’’ The other starters on offense are center Jayce Christian and guard Casey Fowler. The defense, which notched three shutouts last season, has linebackers Davis and Johnson. Davis has started since he was a sophomore. Right end Hill is one of those overachieving athletes. “I have nothing but positive things to say about him,’’ Bishop said. “He can make big plays.’’ The defensive front is Hill and Jared Hinsley at end, Ryan Dawsey and Patrick Smith at tackles. The starting linebacker trio is Johnson, Davis and Pat Patterson. The secondary has some newcomers joining veteran cornerback Place. The new starters are all juniors, including Caleb Frysinger, Shea Wood and Clayton Lowe. Chance Nevarez, a sophomore, is the placekicker. Tyler Caudle, a senior, also kicks. Garrett Ellis handles the punting. Aledo will take on a tough schedule opening with road trips to Stephenville (Aug. 26) and Weatherford (Sept. 2). The showcase game of the non-district schedule is a meeting with Lake

Travis at Aledo on Sept. 9. The 7:30 p.m. kickoff should draw a crowd with the two teams responsible for taking home six of a possible eight 4A state trophies for the last four years. “We have to beat Stephenville and Weatherford first,’’ Buchanan said. “then there might be a few people show up out here.’’ The stadium can hold 9,000; expect that many Sept. 9 for the home opener. Aledo’s record under Buchanan: 187-49-3. The Bearcats have been in the playoffs every year since 1996.

VOLLEYBALL

Early success brings state ranking ◗ Ladycats ranked #2 in

4A following Byron Nelson tourney By Mark Goodson The Community News

Aledo’s volleyball team has a chance to add to the trophy case this year. Presently, the Ladycats are ranked No. 2 in the state and are 15-2 through their Aug. 23 sweep of Denton Guyer. “I wouldn’t put anything past this bunch,’’ Aledo coach Kathy Goings said. Adding another state title to go with the trophies won in football and softball in the school’s run of success is possible. They have already won the Grapevine Tournament and took third in the Byron Nelson Tournament with a trip scheduled to Leander Aug. 25-27. They have already faced the state’s No. 1 team in Lake Travis, losing to the powerhouse Cavaliers in the semifinals of the Nelson event. The semifinal loss

was 25-18, 25-5 against a team with five Division I players. “This bunch has a lot of heart,’’ Goings said. “They have a lot of spirit. Everywhere we go everybody thinks we’re loud. There is a lot of team unity.’’ The talent pool is spread out among all classes, too. The Ladycats start two seniors, two juniors, a sophomore and freshman. Two other juniors are in the rotation. Middle blocker Briana Sharratt has earned all-tournament in both of her tournaments and is a force at middle blocker. Setter Mallory Powell also took all tournament honors at Grapevine. Libero Shannon Taylor also has earned an all-tournament medal this season. Taylor is the team captain and dig leader on the team. Tyler Gromann, a 6-3 senior outside hitter, is one of the big hitters on the team. “She can hit it from any angle,’’ Goings said. Mykah Wilson is only the second freshman to start in Goings’ 15-year ten-

ure at Aledo. The previous was Jessica Dorrell, who helped the team to the 2001 state tournament in Class 3A. That team lost to Wimberly in the semifinals. “She’s got great range, she has a lot of different shots,’’ Goings said of Wilson. Sophomore Raygan McLelland is a powerful player at 5-foot-7. “She plays outstanding defense,’’ Goings said. Sara Smith, a 5-10 junior middle blocker, stands out on defense. Brianna Sharratt, a 6-1 junior, delivers some big hits. “She has quick arms and a great vertical jump. She can put it down.’’ The 5-10 junior Powell is one of the team’s quickest players and runs the team as setter. Hannah Loftin and Ashley Smith are usually the first substitutes into the mix. Rounding out the roster are Quinn Lambert, Haley Loftin, Rachel Lincoln, Kelcie Childs and Kristyn Kupper. Goings team was 36-9 last season

and lost in the regional semifinals to Canyon Randall. This year’s team expects to duplicate its unbeaten mark in District 5-4A and roll into the playoffs. The team has already split with Grapevine and owns wins over Little Cypress, Hallsville, Magnolia, Red Oak and Dumas. The meeting with Lake Travis was huge, too. “They are always good,’’ she said. “It showed us what we have to do to get to the top.’’ Goings said the team didn’t back down and won’t. The Ladycats are going to give it a strong run. The District 5-4A schedule begins Sept. 9 with a trip to Birdville. The district home opener is Sept. 16 with Brewer. The playoffs begin Oct. 31-Nov. 1 with bi-district. The Ladycats have made the playoffs every year under Goings’ guidance.

CROSS COUNTRY

◗ High turnout beefs up

Aledo cross country team By Mark Goodson The Community News

The numbers are up and the talent is young. That’s OK with coach Stan Reid, who begins his 10th season as the cross country coach at Aledo. “We’ve got 18 freshmen and there are a couple that are really awesome,’’ Reid said. It’s a group of athletes that are well rounded, too. In all, Aledo has 56 athletes coming out for cross country to compete in a seven-meet regular season. “It’s the most we’ve ever had come out,’’ Reid said. “They are coming out of the woodwork.’’ The team is young on both the boys and girls side and Reid said the number of students has helped push the competition. “We try to get them to run in the summer and you can tell who came back in shape,’’ he said. The goal of this year’s team is to battle in a tough district. Azle and

YOUNG TALENT Boswell are the traditional powers in cross country in District 5-4A. “Boswell has that girl (Maggie Escobar) that is the epitome of a runner,’’ Reid said. “They’ve had girls go to state three years in a row.’’ The district meet is Oct. 28 at the Tarrant County Northeast campus. “We’ll get in several runs at that course,’’ Reid said. Regional cross country is in Lubbock Nov. 5 and the state meet is Nov. 12 at Old Settlers Park in Round Rock. Freshman Kandace Canaday, who is a soccer player and cheerleader, is the girls’ top runner. “She’s pretty busy, but she finds time to run,’’ Reid said. Kira Schlosberg, a junior, finished 12th in district last year and was just 15 seconds off the pace to make it to regional. Schlosberg is also a swimmer for the Ladycats. Schlosberg ran a 12:30 in district last year and should be able to take that lower and qualify this season. The girls team also has a transfer from Southwest Christian joining the forces. The transfer is Savannah McAlister, who has run a 12:14. She was a champion in TAPPS.

The boys team is led by freshman Colby Caldwell, who runs a sub fiveminute mile. Michael Meadows is another strong freshman runner while senior Austin Abbett comes back for another season after debuting as a junior on the team last year. Abbett is also a member of the band. The girls have just three seniors in Hannah Burger, Sydney Cason and Alexis Studdard. The junior class is strong led by McAlister and Schlosberg. Other juniors are Kayla Lindsay, Christina Munafo, Riley Sadler, Mary Taylor Tillman, Rachel Tosh and Isabelle Tucker. The sophomores are Gillian Law, Berit Ohlendorf, Teresa McGee, Ashley Munoz and Kathleen Thornton. The freshmen are Canaday, Cassidy DellaRocco, Hannah Hamilton, Harley McMahan, Becky Owens and Meredith Schlosberg. The boys senior class includes Abbett, Ethan Cruse, Blake Gandy, Seth McMillan, Blake Rabun, Race Savage, Ignacio Quiroga and Alex Wallace. The boys juniors are Gage Chamberlain, Nathan Dalton, Leo Keating, Hunter Owens, Brent Perry,

David Weaver and Sherman Young. Sophomores in the boys program are Austin Eckstein, Ryan Howell, Hunter League, Zach Morrow, Sean Rinks, Dylan Witkowski and David Youngblood. The strong freshman group includes Caldwell, Meadows, Nick Cruse, Oaklin Davis, Josh Delaune, Logan Hankerson, Robert Malley, Colin Maloney, Kendrick Sonnemann and Bryan Wallace. Aledo last advanced its cross country teams out of district in 2008. The Bearcats were back-to-back district champions in 2006 and 2007. In 2008 the boys were third and the girls second in district. The team opens the season Aug. 27 at Frisco with both the boys and girls competing in the event. That meet starts at 8 a.m. at Warren Park on Eldorado Parkway. Other meets for the Bearcats are Burleson, Sept. 2; Boswell, Sept. 10; Cleburne, Sept. 16, Denton Ryan, Sept. 23; Decatur, Oct. 8; and Keller Central, Oct. 19. The district warmup meet is Oct. 22 at Haltom.

GOLF

Shooting for state on two counts ◗ Aledo golf teams

set high goals By Mark Goodson The Community News

Aledo’s fall golf schedule has the Bearcats and Ladycats taking on some of the top teams and premier courses in North Texas. Head coach Greg Nelson likes to use the fall to prepare his golfers for a run at state in the spring. Entering his fifth year as head coach, Nelson said this year Aledo has the talent to get both the boys and the girls to state in Austin this May. The boys have enough talent to field two teams that will do some traveling. The Black team will open the fall golf tournament season Sept.

16 at the Bart Granger Memorial Invitational at Pecan Valley Golf Course. The huge tournament always attracts state caliber teams and outof-state powerhouses. The leader of the program in 2011 is senior Brandon Wilkins. “He’s been improving the last couple of years,’’ Nelson said. “He’s ready to be that leader. He’s real consistent and I think he’ll step in and do well. He’s the player that can go out and take it low and lead the rest of the group.’’ Wilkins and Brett Nicholson are the senior leaders on the team. Wilkins, junior Trevor Rice and sophomores Riley Shryoc and Logan Lambert were four of the team’s fivesome at Austin last spring. They finished fifth in Class 4A firing rounds of 316 and 315 at the Jimmy Clay Course in Austin. Ace Jeffrey

Merrell shot rounds of 74 and 77 at Austin last spring and now has carried his talents to Houston Baptist University. Nelson said last spring he fully expected his team to make a run at the title despite fielding such a young team. He added that the competition on the boys side will be stout. Other players in the mix are sophomores Dalton Trimmer, Jake Evans and Chad Rizenbergs. Clayton Rinehart, who didn’t play last year, is also one of the candidates to fill a spot. “All of them have a chance,’’ Nelson said. “They have all been playing a lot. Every time I go out to play or go out to the course, they are out there practicing.’’ The depth gives Nelson a lot of options. “They love it,’’ he said. “As hot

as it is, most people are looking for a place to stay indoors. They are out there on the golf course all the time.’’ The Bearcats do most of their practicing at the Split Rail Golf Club in Aledo. “From where they play, it’s a very challenging course,’’ Nelson said. “They play it from the tips and that’s about 6,800 yards.’’ The girls team is equally strong led by the senior tandem of Jesse Bearden and Haley Gann. Sophomores Savannah Moody and Alex Brunson joined Bearden and Gann during last year’s run when Aledo’s girls were second in district and fifth at regional. “All four of those played at regional last year,’’ Nelson said. “They are good enough to give us a chance to send both a boys and girls team to state.’’

SWIMMING IN SWIMMERS favorite going in. The girls have won district the past four years, and the boys have won three of the past four years. The swim team begins workouts after Labor Day at 6 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the West Side YMCA in Fort Worth. When the weather turns cold they will swim at the Benbrook YMCA. While the final schedule is not set, the opening meet will be Sept. 15 at Cleburne. See a preliminary swim schedule on page 20.

◗ Aledo swim team has

record turnout to defend district championships By Randy Keck The Community News

Coach Robert Boehler is looking forward to swim season with both experience and a lot of new faces as well. A look at the Aledo swim roster will show 41 total swimmers, including 14 freshmen – the biggest turnout ever in Aledo. “It’s going to make us real competitive,” Boehler said. More swimmers in more events helps the team accumulate overall points at swim meets. Points are awarded for the top 16 finishers. “Of course, the more people you have finish in the top three, you get more points for that,” Boehler explained. “But even when you have a couple of entries who finish in the the top 16, you get points for that, too.” Providing the leadership for the “Swimcats” this year will be boys’ captains Blake Adcock and Cameron Martinez, and girls’ captain Annabelle Jones. “Blake is probably the best we have in the butterfly and Cameron is a distance swimmer,” Boehler said. “He holds the school record in three events: the 500 freestyle, backstroke and the individual medley.” The individual medley is composed of the four events at a swim meet: freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and breaststroke. Look also for good times from sophomore Dillon Williams, last year’s most improved swimmer. “Dillon is coming back after a good summer season,” Boehler said. For the girls, junior Kira Schlosberg returns. Schlosberg holds school records in 100 yard breaststroke and 200 individual medley, and qualified for the state meet last year. Sophomore Madelyn Franklin was last year’s most improved swimmer. The girls will also have two foreign exchange students on the team, juniors Juliana Bohnemann from Germany and Eleanora Pradegan from Italy. Aledo’s biggest competition this year will probably come from Timber Creek High School, but Aledo is probably the

Aledo’s fall tennis team members are (front row, from left) Leah Hicks, Erika Oltermann, Kendall Pass, Allie Morris, Samantha Rodriguez and Amanda Richter; (second row) Elizabeth Larson, Marilyn Plunk, Michael Brumback, Lindsey Bradford, Mallory Clay, Claire Demers and Erik Meendsen; and (back row) Sarah Hadley Duncan, Will Beeson, T. J. West, Travis Gough, Keegan Moore, Rob Raines, Ryan Howell and coach Barbara Russell.

TENNIS

Seniors provide leadership for Racketcats ◗ Season already underway

with tough matches By Mark Goodson The Community News

Amanda Richter was just a kid when Aledo tennis coach Barbara Russell first met her. That was a decade ago when Richter was toting a tennis racquet almost as big as she was. Now Richter is the top tennis player for the Aledo Racketcats heading into her senior season. “Amanda is certainly on the court a lot,” said Russell. “She’s on the court every day. The more court time you get, the better.”

Richter is the daughter of Karl Richter, who also coaches the Bearcats’ tennis squad along with Russell. “He’s a really good coach,” Russell said. “She gets a lot of good coaching.” The Aledo tennis team jumped into the team tennis matches early. They started Aug. 12 and have already played four team matches this month. The Bearcats will meet Alvarado in its final tuneup before they start District 5-4A action with Birdville Aug. 30. Aledo will battle its traditional rivals in District 5-4A including Azle, Birdville, Boswell, Brewer, Byron Nelson, Springtown and Timber Creek. In team tennis, the teams play 19 matches. The breakdown is three boys

doubles teams, three girls doubles teams, one mixed doubles and six boys singles and six girls singles. Tennis for the spring is individual play with the winners trying to advance through district, regional and state competition. Seven players make up the nucleus of the team. The returners are Richter, seniors Will Beeson, Erika Oltermann and Kendall Pass; junior Rob Raines and sophomores Erik Meendsen and Ryan Howell. Richter, Raines, Meendseen and Howell are all USTA players, competing in national events. “Playing in USTA really helps them,” Russell said. “Rob (Raines) is another one that’s

always out there on the court,” Russell said. Russell said the program has a lot of depth with underclassmen fueling the program. “We’ve got a lot of players that are going to help from the younger group,” she said. The tennis team started 1-3 in its first three matches against stout competition. They beat Class 4A Granbury, 12-7 and lost to 5A schools Mansfield High, 13-6; and Arlington Martin, 15-4. In an abbreviated match they lost 4-3 to 4A Dumas. Dumas and Granbury are in Region I with Aledo.

PATTI HALE/SPECIAL TO THE COMMUNITY NEWS

Trinity Christian Academy Eagles 2011 FOOTBALL AND VOLLEYBALL

Trinity Christian prepares for new athletic season By Randy Keck The Community News

The Trinity Christian Eagles, coming off a second-place finish in the 2010 season, are working for the top district spot in the new 2011 season. Coach Darell LeJeune is counting on three returning seniors – Greg Lanier, Nick Bogdanoff and Caleb Long – to help carry the team to new heights. Lanier is one of the Eagles’ defensive threats, and also plays running back and serves as a lead blocker. Bogdanoff was the team’s leading

rusher last season with 1,800 yards, and he also plays defensive back. Long plays fullback on offense and linebacker on defense. In addition to senior talent, newcomers will help add to overall team speed. Sophomore Zach Delacruz is a new TCA student from Weatherford. “He brings a lot of speed,” LeJeune said. “He will help us tremendously on offense and defense.” Luke Loopold is a returning student at TCA but this is the sophomore’s first year in football.

“He’s another speedy person,” LeJeune said. “He’ll help us out a lot on defense.” The Eagles’ first game is Saturday, Aug. 27 against Arlington High Point, the team that won the state championship last year.

Volleyball Lady Eagles have senior experience. The Trinity Christian Academy Lady Eagles are hoping to build on the success of last season with four returning seniors to coach Karen

Mooney’s squad. Last year the team finished second in district with a 6-2 record and qualified for the state TCAP tournament. Senior leadership will be provided by middle hitters Mary Sapp and Kendall Pauley, back row Haley Bryson and utility player Tiffany Sissom. Juniors on the squad include setter Laura Bolin and outside hitter Dani Ross. Sophomore Sam Paul rounds out returning players for the Lady Eagles.
