The 6-foot-1-inch super-soph, Bossier, knotched an impressive double-double, with 19 points and 17 rebounds.

The 2017-18 basketball season for the Fairfield Lady Eagles came to an all-too-soon end last Friday night in Lorena, as they lost the Area round game to some hot shooting Lady Dawgs from Burnet, 50-33. However, it was not before they added a Bi-District trophy to their District Championship hardware, in a 52-38 victory over Waco Connally last Monday, Feb. 12 in a game that mirrored their successful season.

Fairfield’s gridiron fortunes fell to 2-3 in non-district games Friday night, Sept. 29, in China Spring, but the Eagles are nevertheless approaching their bye week and district schedule with much-deserved confidence and anticipation. The Eagles have played one of the top-10 toughest non-district schedules in all of Class 4A (186 teams), according to the computer rankings of Max Preps. Now, as Fairfield Coach John Bachtel noted, “We have almost two weeks of practice to prepare and get healthy for the district-opener in Salado, on October 13.” He also said, “The area football experts tell us that the Eagles from way down south I-35 are the district’s best team.” Last Friday at Cougar Stadium, the Fairfield Eagles came out like they were Jack, the proverbial “Giant Killer,” especially on defense, as Coach Kevin Childers’ charges forced last year’s Class 4A-DI quarterfinal champions to punt three times in the first quarter.

For the first time in this writer's more than half a century of playing, watching, studying, and writing about high school football, there will be no infamous 2-a-days practices! The UIL's new guidelines now call for only one practice a day meaning the varsity and junior varsity teams will practice three hours a day, while the freshmen will be at it about two hours a day with each group broken into two time segments. Most of the practices will start at 3:30 p.m. except for this Friday, Aug. 11, which will be at 9 a.m.

Fairfield girls HOOP Camp proves exciting

These 30 smiling girls, along with their coaches, attended FHS' annual summer basketball skills camp last week at the JAC in Fairfield. This year's camp was headed by Lady Eagle basketball coach and Girls' Sports Coordinator Sally Whitaker and her able staff.

More than three days of great basketball fun ended this past Thursday at noon, as 30 future Lady Eagle hopefuls finished their final instructions in basic roundball skills and agility training, before engaging in several exciting "hoop" contests. Leading a big cross section of basketball campers from the 1st grade all the way through the 9th were coaches Sally Whitaker, Tarsha Graves, Stacy Bachtel, Amanda Williams, Kayla Davis, Cassey Daniels, and Casey Tuerck -- along with valuable help from current Lady Eagle varsity player Josie Richardson.
