Cross Country meet results

The long-awaited cross country season finally got underway as Dripping Springs hosted their annual meet. Originally, it was to be held at the Dripping Springs Ranch Park. However, the heavy rains in the previous week had rendered the course too rain-soaked to safely use. After having waited a month to get their season started, the three teams wanted to have some competition and decided to compromise the situation. Although not ideal for the sport, Dripping Springs, Hays High and Hays Johnson agreed to hold the meet on the high school track. This did not allow the same type of race to get in their miles but it was competition to get the season started. It did skew the times to be faster than would be the usual. Here are the results of the Tigers teams:

Opinion: Random musings

No doubt, by now, many are wondering what is going on in the sports world, especially school sports. Some are playing. Some are not. The COVID world has really messed with normal these days.

Adult softball league results

The J Hudson Memorial End of Season Tourney has been completed with many of the usual things taking place in a tourney of this type. First, it is not easy for the season champ to repeat as the tourney champ, and it did not happen this year either. The No. 1 seed (Dripping Royalty) and No. 2 (Slapnut Magoos) were thrown into the loser's bracket with an opening loss. These seeds usually draw a first round bye and catch a team that gets hot in their first game. After the first night the No. 6 (T-Baggers) and No.5 (Chronic Offenders) had packed their bags until next season. The top two seeds found themselves in the elimination game to begin the final night. Meanwhile, the No. 3 (Sons of Pitches) and No. 4 (#Town) were the two undefeated teams.
