Over Time, it’s the Dillos!

The San Saba Armadillos, who score more points than any of those Big 12 offensive powerhouses, needed 62 to beat Celeste, 62-56, in double overtime, November

30. The Dillos’ 13th win of the season moved them to the Region finals against DeLeon, Thursday, December 6th, at historic Gordon Wood Stadium in Brownwood.

San Saba needed a 21-point fourth quarter to get the contest with the Blue Devils into OT. And all eight of Eli Salinas’ touchdowns to remain unbeaten. It was Salinas who scored the game winner, but Carter Turner knocked down a Celeste pass to preserve the victory.

The Richland Springs Report

I get tired of hearing myself saying it, but where in the world is all the time going? I feel as if we just started November, and here it is December and the holiday rush has already swept me away. My gate decorations are not up, my house is bare, fall cleaning was missed, and the end of the first semester is lurking around the corner. I know time goes faster as you get older, but the kids are singing the same song. I can’t seem to find a way to slow it all down.

Hill Country Naturalist

Our native woody plants (trees and shrubs) fall into two categories: evergreen and deciduous, the latter means they lose their leaves in the winter and then put on new growth on last year's stems. The majority of our woody species are in fact deciduous, but that doesn't mean they all behave the same.

The timing of leaf drop and of growing back new leaves varies from species to species, as well as with the length of daylight, temperature and moisture. Even within those conditions, there is some variation among individual plants. Some examples of species differences: Buckeyes (Texas and yellow) usually lose their leaves in August or early September. Walnuts start losing their leaves in September and are bare before most of our other trees begin to lose leaves. Then in the spring, elbowbush usually blooms in February and puts out leaves shortly after that, which is why it is also called Spring herald.

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.

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.
