News From Cherokee ISD

It’s the most wonderful (busy) time of the year! Basketball is in full swing. Last week the Lady Indians beat Johnson City in a close match with a score of 38-35. Congratulations, ladies! Varsity teams will travel to Gorman for a tournament this weekend.

Elementary and junior high are gearing up for the annual academic UIL competition. The writing events will take place here at Cherokee at the end of this week to give the graders time to rank the pieces prior to the competition date. Next week elementary participants will travel to Priddy on Tuesday, the 11th, to compete. Junior high participants will also go to Priddy on Wednesday, the 12th, to compete. Good luck to these hard working young students.

Coyote Pride

The Thanksgiving holidays are history. Everyone has returned to school a few pounds heavier from all the turkey and dressing and good desserts. It was a busy Thanksgiving weekend as the Coyotes played in the Regional playoff game at Gatesville Stadium on Friday night. Diehard fans showed up early see the Coyotes play a good Calvert team. The Coyotes' season continues to the Quarterfinals Round of the playoffs with a 60-47 win over the Calvert Trojans. Congrats to the varsity team and coaches as they prepare for Oakwood. This is a busy time, as basketball continues for junior high and high school students. Only three weeks of school remain before the first semester ends.

Lady Dillo Basketball Report

The Lady Dillos’ basketball season is going strong as they picked up three more wins before the Thanksgiving break. Up first, the Lady Coyotes of Richland Springs visited Armadillo Arena. The Lady Dillos played tough defense and made it difficult for Richland to find any type of rhythm on offense. Offensively, the Lady Dillos were able to find holes in their zone and attack. The Lady Dillos defeated Richland by a final score of 55-13.

Next, the Lady Dillos hosted the Lometa Lady Hornets. From the beginning, the Lady Dillos were able to use their speed and push the ball in transition. This led to some easy scoring opportunities. The Lady Dillos full court pressure also caused several turnovers for Lometa. The Lady Dillos defeated the Lady Hornets 73-14.

Coyotes win a slug fest with Calvert

This past Friday’s Regional game was a very tough, hard hitting, and physical game for both the Coyotes and Trojans. Ultimately, it did come down to a rock fight and our Coyotes had a few more rocks than Calvert did in the end. Coyotes won the battle (60-47).

Calvert was Calvert. They were fast, quick, and never gave up. Our Coyotes fought through a lot of adversity and when the momentum swung toward the Trojans, our Coyotes kept churning and churning away until they reeled it back in.

A handful of Coyotes probably wasn’t expecting to play, but because of a couple injuries along the way, they were thrown in the spotlight. They all did a great job on the big stage under the bright lights.

Coyotes win big, now face Calvert....AGAIN!

Our Richland Springs Coyotes made short work of the Brookesmith Mustangs this past Friday night in Zephyr at the Bi-District game, winning 53-6.

Our young Coyotes looked very solid and crisp with only a handful of mistakes that will need to be corrected before this Friday.

Our Coyotes started the game off with a crashing BANG! The slobber knocker hit by TJ Grant jarred the ball loose and the onside kick was recovered by our Coyotes. Our Coyotes never looked back! They reeled off 32 points in the 1st quarter and 21 in the 2nd quarter. The game reached the mercy rule at the half.

Matthew Rigdon (So) was 5-6 for 103 yds passing and 2 TD’s.

Richland Springs FFA Parliamentary Procedures Contest Team wins Area VII District II meet at Marble Falls

The Richland Springs FFA Parliamentary Procedures Speaking Contest Team arrived at the Area VII District II meet as underdogs. It has been many years since Richland Springs ISD has fielded a FFA contest team that has participated in the District Contest. Agricultural Science teacher, Shawn Dennis, began preparing the student team for the Parliamentary Procedures Speaking Contest last school year, but did not feel they were ready for District competition in 2017-2018.

The old clichés PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT and TIME ON TASK applies in contest preparation. Students learn teamwork and how to prepare for FFA speaking competition against other teams from other schools. Guidance, past experience, and direction from Mr. Dennis helped the team achieve a successful outcome in their speaking contest debut on November 6, 2018.

News From Cherokee ISD

Football season ended on a bit of a low note this year as our junior high and high school teams lost to Panther Creek. The junior high final score was 6-26 with the lone touchdown going to Gunner Baugh. The high school team fought hard and was able to keep up with the opposing team for a while. At halftime the score was 20-28 with the Indians trailing just a hair. However, with several players unable to play, it was difficult for the Indians to keep up their momentum and lost with a final score of 45-74. We are so proud of the progress that was made this year and the positive attitudes that our new coaching staff has brought to the table. Thank you to Coach White, Coach Berrio, Coach Repass, and Coach Holland for all of your hard work and dedication to our boys this year. We are looking forward to basketball season! This week the high school girls’ basketball team plays in Brady on Tuesday and travel to Hamilton for a tournament this weekend. Go Lady Indians!
