Bay City Sentinel/Don Cudd
The Tidehaven High School band looks on from its new digs during basketball games in the school's brand new dome arena, which opened Jan. 22. Tidehaven's boys and girls basketball teams both lost their opening night games in the new building, but Tigerrette Chelcy Broussard made history by scoring Tidehaven's first-ever basket in the dome.

Bay City junior Prinard Payne goes high off the paint for a shot as senior Thurman Williams readies himself for an offensive rebound. The move came during a 79-48 loss to El Campo at home Friday. Bay City fell to 0-3 in district after the game, as did Tidehaven’s boys team after a 57-33 loss to Halletsville. Tidehaven’s girls also dropped to 0-5 with a loss to state ranked Hallettsville in the first-ever varsity game played in the school’s new dome arena. (See page 1.) Meanwhile, three other area teams continued to rack up district wins last week. Van Vleck’s boys squad improved to 4-1 with a 36-25 win over Danbury Jan. 19. The Lady Leopards also beat Danbury and improved to 6-1. And, Bay City’s girls, despite falling to undefeated Wharton on Tuesday, rebounded against El Campo 71-50 on Friday.

As area high school athletic programs await Friday’s announcement of Texas’s latest district re-alignments, preliminary indications are that football teams at Bay City and Tidehaven will stay in their current divisions while Van Vleck will be moving up a notch beginning next school year. 
   Exact district alignments for all sports at all schools are set to be released by the UIL Friday morning. But schools have already been tentatively assigned to classes and divisions based on the enrollment numbers they reported late last year. Those assignments are subject to change as coaches and administrators still may argue their cases through most of this week. UIL officials may also take miscellaneous considerations such as travel time into account in making final district assignments.
