Regional Cross Country Meet, Lady Cats Volleyball, Wildcats and Lady Cats Golf and Middle School Football All On Deck For Tuesday Game Day

Tuesday, Oct. 26 is a busy one for Sulphur Springs sports.

Leading the charge in athletic contests Tuesday are the Lady Cats volleyball team, who will look to get back in to the win column Tuesday versus Longview.

It has been a tough stretch for the volleyball team led by head coach Bailey Dorner. Sulphur Springs has faced a brutal string of opponents in playoff-bound Hallsville, Marshall, Texas High, and a tough Edgewood team last Tuesday.

As their schedule has hardened due to the opponents, and as the playoffs are right around the corner next week, Coach Dorner and her squad will look to get a desperately-needed win tonight in Longview versus the Lady Lobos.

Longview comes in to the match with a 4-7 district record, with half of those victories coming in October. Sulphur Springs has stumbled in October, falling to 3-3 in district play this month and 3-4 overall.

With the Lady Cats set to compete in the Bi-District round, tentatively scheduled for Monday, they will need to get back in the win column to restore some confidence for the team heading in to the playoffs.

Tuesday’s match will be broadcasted on to KSST 1230 AM at 6 P.M.

Moving over to golf, the fall 2021 season has just about come and gone for the golf program.

Both golf teams will be in Longview today taking on the Lobos at Tempest Golf Club.

Believe it or not, Tuesday’s contest in Longview will be the final match of the 2021 fall season for the Lady Cats as they will look to finish out the season strong.

Tuesday’s contest at Tempest will also mark the halfway point for the varsity men’s team, as after today they will only have two more on the fall 2021 season.

The final two matches for coach Jeremy DeLorge’s squad will be the following two Mondays on Nov. 1 and Nov. 8.

Coach Ross Hicks and his Lady Cats cross country team plus a few Wildcats are already underway at the Regional Cross Country meet.

The meet at Lynn Creek at Joe Pool Lake is the last competition before the 5A state championship meet held in Round Rock, TX.

The Lady Cats will be the first to get started at noon, with the men that did move on to the 5A Region II championship doing their 5K 30 minutes later at 12:30 P.M.

Sulphur Springs propelled themselves to the Regional Meet thanks in large part to an all-around great team performance. Three Lady Cat runners placed in the top-16, with two of them taking top-10 finishes.

While the men placed fourth, it was unfortunately not enough to get the regional-qualifying bid.

It may have been a tough end for the men, but the team will be all too excited to cheer on their Lady Cats and the men that did qualify.

Regionals begin for 5A-Division II at 12 P.M. for the men and 12:30 P.M. for the women.

And last but certainly not least the middle school football program will be in Hallsville taking on the Bobcats. Coach Eddie Flores’s A and B teams have gone on a crusade, winning all six of their first contests with only two games left on the fall 2021 season.

They will no doubt hope to ride their momentum to two undefeated 8-0 seasons for both teams, but first they will have to get through Hallsville for their second-to-last contest.

Last Tuesday the middle school football program was back at home at the Prim, and both A and B teams got their sixth win on the season when the A team dispatched took care of Pine Tree 35-26. The B team dispatched the Pirates 28-0 in the shutout victory in Longview.

But with two games left, and both teams riding the undefeated high, there is no doubt both Hallsville and next week’s opponent Marshall will hope to hand the Sulphur Springs middle school Wildcats their first loss on the season.

Coach Flores and his middle school Wildcats football team will look to close-out their season with two more victories clenching their undefeated season, but first they will have to get through Hallsville tonight.

The action begins later today at 4:30 P.M. starting with the C team, followed by the B and A teams at 5:30 P.M. and 6:30 P.M. respectively.
