Cedar Park's 28 second-half points lift Timberwolves over Aledo Bearcats, 31-13

August 29, 2015 by Tony Eierdam

Class 5A No. 2 Cedar Park came back from a 7-3 halftime deficit with 28 unanswered points in the second half on its way to a 31-13 win over the No. 1 Aledo Bearcats Friday night in the season opener at McLane Stadium in Waco.

Cedar Park scored on runs of 1, 90 and 20 yards in the second half while also reaching the end zone on a 61-yard punt return.

The loss spoiled the debut of junior quarterback Dillon Davis, who completed nine of 15 passes for 117 yards in the first half but had little time to throw against the hard-charging 'Wolves in the second half.

Cedar Park avenged a 21-17 loss to the Bearcats in last year's season opener also played at McLane Stadium.

August 28, 2015 by Rosealee Hoffman

"Not just because of the impact that it has on our city, but because of the potential impact it has on every city, every county, every water district, and the oil and gas industry throughout the state of Texas."

Sheriff warns of suspicious persons

August 24, 2015 by Rosealee Hoffman

From the Parker County Sheriff's Department:

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler wants to warn the public against suspicious persons and would-be criminals.

On Friday, Aug. 21, 2015, an-86-year-old man and his 78-year-old wife reported an unknown man and woman approached their residence the previous week claiming to be neighbors, and seeking to view their garden located in the 3000 block of East Bankhead Highway.

The victims allowed the couple to enter the backyard, but noticed a few moments later, the male had disappeared.

The man was found inside the couple’s home, uninvited. The victim believes the couple used a diversionary tactic to gain entrance to their residence.

Ladycats sweep Plano East to take consolation championship at Northwest ISD Volleyball Tournament

August 22, 2015 by Tony Eierdam

A curse may have turned into a blessing for the Aledo Ladycats volleyball team.

Playing at the Northwest ISD Volleyball Tournament without injured top hitters Maddie Goings and Emily Smith, the Ladycats went 1-2 in Thursday pool play.

But after the lineup settled - and paced by a bevy of eager hitters - the Ladycats went undefeated in Friday pool play and won all three games Saturday in bracket play, including a 25-21, 25-19 victory over Class 6A Plano East in the finale to win the consolation bracket.

Ladycats head coach Kathy Goings praised the efforts of hitters Amanda Norman, Camryn McLelland, Sarah Haeussler, Peyton Lambert, Izzy Gonzalez and Brecken Roquemore - hitters who saw more touches in the tournament due the absences of Maddie Goings and Smith.
