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.

Bay City semi-proTexans pick up second pre-season win

    The Bay City Texans semi-pro football team is now 2-0 in its pre-season after a 18-0 win over the Houston Lobos in Pearland, December 19. 
   The game was part of a five-game “Jamboree” toy-drive at Pearland High School’s stadium (aka The Rig). Fans of the 10 Houston-area teams in the event brought in more than 2,000 toys that will be donated to needy children, said Texans owner Rudy Guzman. 
  The Lobos are known in semi-pro football circles for being tough on defense, but, with the shut-out that came a week after a 36-7 blow out of the Edinburg Landsharks,  the Texans now have the Houston football world talking about their own defense.
