GHS freshman pitcher dominant in key wins

Living up to her name, Granbury Lady Pirate softball pitcher Kristen was, well, right on the money this past weekend.

Money, a freshman, was nothing short of dominant as the Lady Pirates defeated visiting Arlington Heights 11-0 at home Friday and won 16-0 at O.D. Wyatt Saturday.

In the win over Heights, Money pitched a one-hitter. The game was called after five innings because of the University Interscholastic League’s mercy rule that states if a team is ahead by 10 or more runs after innings, the game is over.Read the rest

Lady Rattlers fall on road

April 5, 2014

The Tolar Lady Rattlers’ struggles in District 10-2A continued Tuesday with a 13-3 loss at Godley.

But Colley made it clear she hasn’t given up hope.Read the rest

Surprisingly, a lot of good information comes from these fishing/hunting sites for most any lake in Texas. The site I visit most is the www.texasfishingforum.com which covers mainly Texas waters.
