Lady Farmers drop pair of predistrict games

By David Jenkins
Staff Writer

The Lady Farmers dropped a pair of home non-district contests last week.

They opened Jan. 14 with a loss to state-ranked Ponder and three days later (Dec. 17) fell 49-47 to the Dallas Home School Athletic Association Angels.

The Lady Farmers hit the road Dec. 20 to take on former District 13-3A opponent Emory Rains.

They close out the non-district season in the 50th Annual Leonard Holiday Tournament, Dec. 27-29  at the high school and junior high.

Tourney play opens 1:30 p.m. Dec. 27 versus Celina at the junior high.

A victory has them facing the winner of the Alba-Golden-Anna matchup 7 p.m. at the same location.

However, a defeat puts them against the loser of the previously mentioned contest at 1:30 p.m. the following day at the high school.

Other teams competing in the tournament are host Leonard, Wolfe City, Bells, Texas Christian Academy, Sunnyvale, Tom Bean, Whitewright, Emory Rains, District 11-3A member Frisco Lone Star and Honey Grove.

In last years tournament the Lady Farmers finished second after losing 37-29 to then 13-3A opponent Emory Rains.

They made it to the title game by defeating Wolfe City (51-15), HSAA (62-35) and the host-team Leonard Lady Tigers (61-42) all in a two-day span.

Named to the All-Tournament team for 2009 were graduates Shelby Eaves and Kenni Wallace.

Subvarsity report
The junior varsity team last week fell at home to Ponder 59-40  and 56-40 against HSAA.

The Lady Farmers traveled Dec. 20 to take on Emory Rains.

Junior high report
Farmersville’s seventh- and eighth-grade teams went a combined 1-3 Dec. 13 at home against Crandall.

The seventh-grade A was victorious 34-33, and B lost 11-6. The eighth-grade A fell 35-25, and B was lost 13-10.

They open the 11-3A season Jan. 6 at home against Princeton’s Clark Junior High. Games are scheduled for 6 and 7 p.m. at the junior high and high school gyms.
