Ladycat soccer hanging tough

  The Bay City Ladycats Soccer team will bring a 2-1 district record into its match-up with Palacios at home on Friday.
   After a win over El Campo to start district play last week, the team came-up short (4-5) on a comeback bid at Columbia on Saturday and solidly beat Wharton (8-0)  on Monday.
   In the Columbia game, the Ladycats were down 5-0 with 18:14 remaining – and the goals started pouring in.    
   LeJay Longoria fed Whitney Muskiet for the first score, and Muskiet found the net again some 45 seconds later on an assist by Madison Trevino. With 14:41 left, Longoria scored on a penalty kick, and then Madison Trevino took advantage of Alyson Montoya’s assist to bring home the final tally of the game. 
   “This was an incredible game from this group of ladies to come from behind and nearly tie the game,” coach Melissa Ursery said in an email to media and supporters afterward.

Bay City boys looking for a win

The Bay City High School boys soccer team will be looking for its first win of the district season when it takes the field against Palacios on Friday. 
   The Blackcats are 0-3 in district so far, but they have kept every every game close.  After a district-opening 3-2 loss to El Campo on Jan. 18, the team fell to Columbus 2-0 on Saturday and, finally, to Wharton 1-0 on Monday. 
   Despite the losses, the team has not been without its share of scoring opportunities in the early season. 
   In the game against Wharton, the Blackcats saw shots on goal from Anthony Chavez, Gavino Zamora and Jair Garcia, who had two scoring changes. 
    In the loss to El Campo, the team had seven shots on goal. Chavez, Zamora and Garcia each had two serious opportunities at the net, and Johnathan Zavala added another. 
    Goalie Jorge DeLaRosa save seven goals for the Blackcats against Wharton. He and Mario Murillo teamed up to record three saves against El Campo.

Bay City grad named WJCAC player of the week

Mitchell

Former Bay City High School basketball player Shaniya Mitchell is fitting in well on her college team.
   The 5’10 freshman at New Mexico Junior College has been named Western Junior College Athletic Conference Player of the Week for the second time this season. 
   Mitchell earned the honor after the Lady Thunderbirds’ win over South Plains Community College last week.
   In that game, she came off the bench to score 20 points and contribute six rebounds while leading the team in minutes.
   Mitchell was the Bay City Ladycats leading scorer in her senior season last year. She averaged 23 points per game and tallied 211 rebounds through the 2014-2015 campaign.
   With those numbers, she was the key figure in Bay City’s 6-4 district season (23-16 overall) in which the ‘Cats advanced to the third round of the UIL State playoffs.

Sha’ dasia Wilcox takes a shot in Bay City’s 41-30 win over Columbus at the Bay City gym Jan.15. The game followed Wilcox’s 40-point performance on Jan. 12, and the win put the Ladycats at 3-0 in district 27-4A play.

   For those who follow high school basketball box scores, Bay City senior Sha’ dasia Wilcox’s numbers on Jan. 12 are an attention getter, to say the least.
   She hit 40 points in the Ladycats’ 61-50 district 27-4A win over Sealy.
  “Yeah, that’s definitely rare,” Coach Liz Griffin said this week. “I think I’ve seen stats sheets showing players hitting 45 points in a game a couple of times over the years, but it of course doesn’t happen very often.”
   Wilcox’s feat was part of a six-game win streak that Bay City took into its marquee district matchup at Wharton, just after press time on Tuesday.

Overtime Fight...

Bay City senior Kiko Gaskin takes a shot during Friday’s district-opening game against Columbus at the Bay City gym. The tightly contested game ended after an overtime period with Gaskin’s Blackcats falling just short 66-65. Bay City enters District 27-4A play hoping to improve on last season’s 8-2 record and second place finish. Game two for the squad was set to be in Wharton at press time on Tuesday, and then another home game was set for Friday at home against El Campo. Both of these opponents won their district openers on Friday and are considered top contenders for the 2016 championship. That makes these early games key to Bay City’s own championship quest this year.

Van Vleck baseball field will be named in honor of Joe Ros

   When baseball season arrives, Van Vleck High School will unveil a new memorial to its beloved former student – and VVISD employee – Joe Ros.
   School board members approved plans last week to name the school’s baseball field in Ros’s honor.
   The field, which does not currently have an official name, will be christened as “Joe Ros Field” during a ceremony before the Van Vleck baseball team’s first scheduled game on Feb. 22, said VVISD Superintendent John O’Brien.
   “Joe was on the first baseball team at Van Vleck, and he served in the military in the late ‘80s,” O’Brien said, “so this will be a great tribute to him.”
   Ros was a VVISD administrator and local community leader for many years before his death last summer.
