Lady Coyotes claim Championship

Article Image Alt Text

The Richland Springs Lady Coyote Golf team opened the 2019 year with a little bang. It was not the best day for golf, but each player overcame the elements, battled hard, and the team was crowned Champions of the San Saba Invitational this past Thursday.

When asked what Coach Chad Ashworth thought about the first tournament of the year, he said, “The Lady Coyotes had a great first tournament. They have been putting in plenty of practice.”

The 2019 team welcomes back three returning girls from last year: Kamree Lewis (Sr.), Atrel Carlisle (Sr.), and Gracie Ashworth (Jr.). These girls as a team made a great push at Regional in 2018, but fell short of advancing to State with a 4th place finish. Kamree Lewis as a Medalist did finish 2nd at Regional and placed 8th at State.

On Friday, the Lady Dillos hosted Center Point for our final district game as well as Senior night for our four Lady Dillo seniors. The Lady Dillos got after Center Point from the opening tip off. We moved the ball well on offense and were able to find holes in Center Point’s zone. We also pressured them with our defense and caused several turnovers that we were able to convert into points. The Lady Dillos would cruise to a 74-18 victory over Junction.

Football fans urged to make sober ride part of their Super Bowl Plan

With the excitement of Super Bowl weekend just days away, the Texas Department of Transportation is urging football fans to “Plan While You Can” for a sober ride before enjoying game-day watch parties and other activities that may involve alcohol.

“Super Bowl weekend is a potentially dangerous time for alcohol-related crashes,” said TxDOT Executive Director James Bass. “With so many transportation options available, there is absolutely no excuse to drink and drive.

If you plan to drink alcohol, plan ahead for a sober ride. It’s a game plan that could save a life.”

Coyote Pride

The future workforce in Texas will need to be workready. Many seniors are currently making plans for college or work after graduation.

Here is some food for thought. Studies show that foregoing postsecondary training and education can mean a tremendous loss of income over a lifetime. A student who earns an associate degree, for example, will earn an average of $340,000 more over a working lifetime than someone with just a high school diploma — and nearly $600,000 more than a worker with no diploma.

Four years of college is not for everyone. More parents and students need to be aware of all postsecondary educational options, including career and technical education (CTE), and the availability of financial assistance.
