February 10, 2015 by Tony Eierdam

Rhylie Makawe scored 19 points and Kara Williams added 14 to lead the Aledo Ladycats to a 53-42 win over first-place Burleson Tuesday night in the girls' District 8-5A finale at the AHS gym.

The win - combined with Cleburne's win over Joshua - puts the Ladycats and Cleburne in a tie for third place with identical 9-5 league marks.

Ladycats control playoff destiny in finale today at home against first-place Burleson

February 10, 2015 by Tony Eierdam

Aledo guard Hannah Berkovsky fires a pass during a recent game. Berkovsky and classmates Rhylie Makawe, Hannah Haeussler and Treva Davis will be honored during Senior Night festivities. The Ladycats will face Burleson in the district finale at 6:30 p.m. at the AHS gym with the Bearcats and Burleson game to follow.

Holding their playoff destiny in their own hands, the Aledo Ladycats can clinch a playoff spot with a win over first-place Burleson today in the girls' District 8-5A finale on Senior Night at the AHS gym.

A victory by the Ladycats would give Aledo nine district wins and would seal at least fourth place. If Joshua defeats Cleburne and the Ladycats win Aledo would finish in third place

Ladycats, Crowley battle for second place today at Crowley; Bearcats also in big game against Eagles

February 6, 2015 by Tony Eierdam

Aledo senior post Rhylie Makawe looks all business as she looks down low during a recent Ladycats game. The Ladycats will play for second place outright today in a District 8-5A basketball game at Crowley. Tip off is at 6:30 p.m. followed by the Bearcats/Eagles game at 8 p.m.

With a chance to not only sweep the season series but also to grab second place outright, the Aledo Ladycats basketball team will travel to Crowley for a 6:30 p.m. start in a key District 8-5A match up.

The Ladycats bring an 8-4 district mark into the contest. Although Crowley sits now at 9-3, a win by Aledo would give both teams a 9-4 record but Aledo would maintain control of second place due to a season sweep.

Aledo receiver Ryan Newsome flips college choice to Texas

February 4, 2015 by Tony Eierdam

After a dramatic ceremony on Jan. 23 at the Aledo High School auditorium, Aledo "four star" recruit Ryan Newsome announced he would play football at UCLA.

However, in the wee morning hours of today Newsome called UCLA coaches and informed them he will instead play football beginning next fall at the University of Texas, joining former Bearcat All-American Johnathan Gray.

In a statement released to the media, Newsome said he had a change of heart when Texas head coach Charlie Strong "kept after me" after the receiver announced he was going to UCLA.

Newsome also said the change of heart happened when he realized it would be easier for his family to watch him play in Austin for the Longhorns.
