CLOVIS, Calif. - On the first day of the USATF Junior Outdoor Championships, freshman Taylor Bennett placed fourth in the 100-meter dash with a time of 11.45 Friday at Veteran's Memorial Stadium.

Bennett opened her day by posting the second-fastest qualifying time by winning her 100-meter prelim in 11.40. Two hours later, Bennett returned to the track as she was looking to finish in the top two of the final to qualify for the IAAF World U20 Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland, July 19-24.

Running in the same 100-meter prelim as Bennett, Kiana Horton placed fifth and finished 16th overall with a time of 12.32.

    BELTON, Texas – The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor men’s basketball team used clutch free-throw shooting to send the game to overtime and the Cru was able to create separation in the final minute of overtime in a 90-84 overtime win over Wayland Baptist Tuesday night in Belton. The game was an exhibition and does not count in UMHB’s record. The Pioneers, an NAIA program, did count the contest as a regular game and drop to 8-4 on the season with the loss. UMHB led...More >>

    The Panthers are looking to make Mart history this week. If the Panthers are able to beat Gruver on Wednesday, They will be back to back State Champions, a feat no other Mart football team has been able to claim.  But to do so, Mart will have to beat a tough, hard-nosed team from up in the panhandle.  Both teams are 14-1 and went undefeated in district. But now, none of that matters. It's all about who can go 1-0 this week to be named State Champions.  The Pan...More >>
