Eads Scores 11 Touchdowns in Track Meet Over Manzanola, 78-48

Barnes is now leading the state in rushing touchdowns with 13 in two games.  Eads is averaging 69.5 points per game in the very early going.

After a dominating performance against Genoa-Hugo in their season opener a week ago, Eads Eagles fans were wondering if their Purple & Gold was the real deal.  After all, it had been a long year last year as the fans watched a team loaded with freshmen and sophomores struggle to find their bearings in varsity high school football.  But, evidently, with a lot of weight room work, some lessons from the school of hard knocks, and the simple fact that freshmen boys have a whole lot of growing left in them, the Eagles have managed to turn things around after they dominated a physical Manzanola team, 78-48, in front of the Eagle fan base.

Southern Plains Softball 10U Team Competes in Large Hutchison Tournament

This year the Southern Plains All-Star season looks a little different as all SP teams have elected to play in open tournaments rather than in the usual Babe Ruth Tournament Trail.  The youngest softball players for Southern Plains, the 10U group, ended up in a very big tournament way over in Hutchinson, Kansas over the weekend where they learned that 10-year-olds really can pitch very well and that there are certainly a few levels of improvement to get to.  They went 0-4 in the tournament, but by the time they were done on Sunday they had learned how to compete against tough competition, how to play like a team unit, and how much work it takes to get to the next level.
