FHS gridders shutout Mustangs in scrimmage

Eagle running back Kam Ransom dances around the Madisonville defense, thanks to some good blocking, in last Friday's first scrimmage of the 2016 season.

In a contest shortened by the threat of lightning, the Fairfield Eagle varsity football team turned in a suffocating defensive effort against Madisonville last Friday night, giving up only a handful of first downs and one long run, as they scored twice, while keeping the Mustangs out of the end zone!

On the lone run of any significance, their runner burst through the line and bolted from the 25 to the 25, before the Eagles' Elijah Ransom ran him down from behind.

China Spring ends Lady Eagle softball season

Lady Eagle 1st baseman Lauren Cole, 2, and 3rd baseman Kealie House get ready for action as Kaci Bachtel fires a pitch to home in Fairfield's Bi-District game with China Spring last week.

Photo by Roy Peterson

Fairfield's quest for a Bi-District softball title was ended by the hard hitting, powder-blue clad Lady Cougars from China Spring last week, 15-5. The abrupt end to a terrific turn-around season may have been hard to take for the Lady Eagles and their families and fans, but it didn't diminish the great memories accumulated by a District Championship team that overcame adversity, and won seven consecutive district games to end the regular season!

The highly successful Lady Eagle and Eagle track teams put one more notch in their championship belts this past week, taking good advantage, as winners do, of the familiarity of their "home turf."

After both teams won District Crowns the previous week, they did the same again in the 4A-Waco Region Area Meet, with both teams winning the meet in the very last event of the day!

The girls went into the 4 by 400M relay down by four points to Lorena and garnered the bronze medal to win the meet, 121 to 113, as Lorena didn't have a team in the race. DaMeka Shed finished in second place for high point girl, with 24 points, behind Duke track signee Tracy Janders' phenomenal 38!
