It was almost a must-win match.
Entering their home volleyball tilt against Burleson Centennial Tuesday, the Granbury Lady Pirates were a game behind the Lady Spartans and Aledo in the standings. A loss and they would be two games back, needing some help if they are going to again contend for a district championship.…
RIO VISTA – The outcome of Friday night’s football game was irrelevant for Tolar and Rio Vista after a player was injured and word drifted through the stands that he might be paralyzed.
The Rattlers and their coaches and fans undoubtedly turned their thoughts to one of their own – Aaron McClelen, who sustained paralysis in his lower body as a result of a Sept.…
In District 9-2A volleyball, the chase for playoff positioning is intense.
So it pays to have a two-game cushion in the standings, which the Tolar Lady Rattlers have, as the district’s midpoint arrives.
The Lady Rattlers gained that advantage with a 25-19, 25-20, 25-22 win at Chico Saturday.
The win improved the Lady Rattlers to 6-0 in district (19-8 overall).…
Jax Madrigal, 5, exchanges a dap with the game official before Friday’s Granbury-Burleson football game at Pirate Stadium.

The Granbury Pirates are hoping history repeats itself this week.
Well, perhaps not exactly.
A year ago the Pirates were coming off a convincing loss to Burleson. They followed by playing their best game of the season in a close loss to Everman, a team that advanced four rounds into the playoffs.…
Saturday was a great day for an afternoon football game.

The contest was ended early in the second half due to six-man football’s 45-point mercy rule after the Pioneers scored to go ahead 74-27.…
