Ladycats, Cleburne to fight for third place in District 8-5A with tiebreaker game today at Crowley

February 12, 2015 by Tony Eierdam

After 14 District 8-5A basketball games, the Aledo Ladycats and Cleburne Lady Jackets will need a 15th game to decide who will get the coveted third seed in the district for the upcoming Class 5A playoffs.

The Ladycats and Lady Jackets will square off at 6:30 p.m. today (Friday, Feb. 13) at Crowley High School. Aledo will be the designated “home” team.

Tickets at the gate are $4 for adults and $3 for students.

Both teams finished the district slate with 9-5 records and have qualified for post-season play as each district qualifies four teams for the state playoffs.

But this game is far more just about bragging rights of being the third-place team in the league as opposed to fourth place.

February 10, 2015 by Tony Eierdam

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.
