Varsity Tennis

The Woodville Varsity tennis team had another good showing in last week's Orange County Tennis Tournament. The tournament was played at Vidor, Orangefield and Bridge City High Schools. The girls' singles and doubles were played in Vidor while the boys' singles were played in Bridge City and the boys' doubles played in Orangefield.

The Eagles played tennis, not only against their opponents, but also against gusty winds and cool temperatures. At the tournament were some very tough opponents from 3A, 4A and 5A schools. Warren and Woodville were the only 2A schools in the tournament. After everything was said and done, the Woodville Eagles used their rackets as their weapons and came away with both wins and losses.

Sean O'Neal once again played tough in the boys' singles division beating A. Fracosstoro from LCM in the first round with a score of 6-2, 6-2. He faced the #1 seeded player in the singles division, Paul Rios from P.N.G and again, O'Neal was able to take advantage of his tennis arsenal, coming out victorious with a score of 6-2, 6-2, advancing O'Neal to the semifinal round. Here he met Jacob Rowe from Kirbyville where Sean could not put his shots together and lost by a score of 6-0, 6-2.

Austin Coker and B.J. Hutto were the #2 seeded players in the boys' doubles division, drawing a bye in the first round. In the second round, they faced the powerful #1 team from Port Arthur Memorial High School. After several hard exchanges of forehands and backhands, Coker and Hutto came out on top with a 8-5 win. This match put Coker & Hutto in the semifinals where they fought hard against a very tough Bridge City High School duo but fell short with scores of 4-6, 3-6.

The other Woodville boys' doubles team of Adrian Baeza and Justin Releford faced hard opponents from West Orange Stark and lost by scores of 2-6, 2-6.

Destiny Hadnot and Hannah Williams represented the Eagles in the girls' singles. Hadnot lost to Erin Tutt from LCM 2-8 while Williams also lost to Memorial's Jelissa Bob with the same results: 2-8.

The girls' doubles team of Jenny Grissom and Kristen Swafford played against Buna's # 1 doubles team of Meagan Gilschrist and Casey Myers. The Lady Eagles easily won with a score of 8-2. The quarter finals were much tougher since there they met the tournament's # 1 seeded players, Katelyn Alexander and Kolbie Kruft from Silsbee. The Lady Eagles went back and forth for a while, staying up with the Silsbee duo but, in the end, Silsbee came out on top with a score of 8-4.

In preparation for the District 22-2A Tournament to be played here in Woodville during our upcoming Spring Break, the Eagles tennis teams (Varsity and Junior Varsity) will play this coming Friday in the Ozen High School Invitational Tournament in Beaumont. The Eagles are anticipating another good showing in this tournament.

The Pirates fell out of play-offs on Tuesday, February 21 when they faced Wells in their first official playoff game of the season. The boys played hard and had a good game, but were no match against the size and speed of the large team from Wells. The game ended with a score of 52-84.

The fans and community had some great things to say about the boys and continued to offer their undying support, even after the season had ended.

"We are so proud of these young men," one fan said. "They have worked hard all season, worked as a team, and have shown everyone what they have. I know I'm impressed."

The town of Spurger thanks Coach Odom and both the Spurger Pirates girls' and boys' basketball teams for a great and successful season.

Playoffs end for one team, begin for another

Luke McLeod jumps to shoot for two points against Evadale Friday.by Emily Waldrep

After a fun and sometimes difficult basketball season, the Spurger Lady Pirates played their last official game on Thursday, February 14 at Angelina College in Lufkin. The team played Wells in their first playoff game of the year, and fell behind 22-54. The girls played long and hard, and truly gave it their best shot against Wells, but couldn't hit the shots they needed to bring up the score. Notable players in the game were Kaitlyn Willis with six points and McKenzie McGallion with five points. The girls had a great season, and are already looking forward to making it into the playoffs next year.

The boys' team, on the other hand, played a warm-up game against Evadale on Friday, February 17. Although the Pirates lost, they played well under the pressure of a larger team and feel that the game was good practice for the intense level of competition they will be facing during playoffs.

While most of the students in Woodville ISD were out on their Winter Break, the Varsity tennis team, along with their parents, traveled to Beaumont on Friday, February 17 to play in the Old South Park High School tournament.

Once there, Sean O'Neal, Woodville singles player, faced the number one seeded player, Chris Guillory from West Brook, in the first round. Sean out-played him and came out victorious with a score of 8-2. Then in the second round, Sean faced the number one player from Silsbee, and again Sean came out on top with a score of 8-3. This win sent Sean into the semi-finals where he played the number one player from East Chambers, Spencer Glenn. This was a tougher match and Sean was not able to put all his forehands, backhands, serves, smashes, and volleys into play. Because of this, Sean lost by scores of 6-2 and 6-1.

The Woodville boys' doubles team of Austin Coker and B.J. Hutto drew a bye in the first round and came out on top in the second round, beating Andrew Bissner and Minh Tran from West Brook by a score of 8-2. This advanced the Eagles to the semi-finals, where they faced East Chambers' number one team composed of Nils Brass and Alex Spencer. Although they played extremely well, Woodville took a loss with a score of 6-1 and 6-3.

Woodville's number one girls' doubles team of Jenny Grissom and Kristen Swafford easily won over Jasper's number one girls' doubles team of Morgan Denovich and Anita Grindstaff by a score of 8-1. Then in the second round, they faced the number two seeded team from West Brook, made up of partners Karshma Ghadia and Aubrey Mejia. Here, these Lady Eagles came out on top with a score of 8-3. This win put Grissom and Swafford in the semi-final round against East Chambers. They proved to be tough opponents for the Woodville duo, who lost by a score of 6-0 and 6-4.

Woodville Tennis Eagles will fly again on February 24, playing in the Orange County Tennis Invitational on Orangefield, Bridge City, and Vidor High School tennis courts. We wish the Woodville Tennis team the best of everything, and that they will continue to "fly high." Coach Ramos is extremely proud of this year's accomplishments to date. Keep it up, Eagles!

Spurger Lady Pirates play last official game, boys team warm up for District Playoff

Spurger Lady Pirates Play Wellsby Emily Waldrep-

After a fun and sometimes difficult basketball season, the Spurger Lady Pirates played their last official game on Thursday, February 14 at Angelina College in Nacogdoches. The team played Well's in their first playoff game of the year, and fell behind 22-54. The girls played long and hard, and truly gave it their best shot against Wells, but couldn't hit the shots they needed to bring up the score. Notable players in the game were Kaitlyn Willis with 6 points and McKenzie McGallion with 5 points. The girls had a great season and are already looking forward to making it into the playoffs next year.

The boy's team on the other hand will start warming up for their district playoffs Friday, February 17 when they play Evadale in Spurger. The warm-up game doesn't hold any weight in district playoffs, but provides the boys practice for facing other teams and fills in a week that would otherwise not have a game scheduled. An official playoff game, opponent or location has been scheduled for Spurger but they expect to have a bracket for playoffs early next week.
