In one of their most dominant outings in recent years, the Lady Leps smashed an overmatched Luling team 52-12 to improve their record to 4-6 this season.

Hog Heaven: Big Guys Help Leps Feast on Competition

The name says it all. “We call them hogs,” said La Grange head football coach Matt Kates of his offensive linemen that have helped bulldoze the Leps to a perfect 12-0 start this season and a berth in Friday night’s state quarterfinal game against Gonzales. “It really is a good name for us because hogs go out and uproot everything and we go out there and try to uproot the D-line and linebackers,” said La Grange senior Zach Ledwik, who is considered by many scouts to be among the best tackles in the entire state of Texas, and has committed to play for Texas A&M next season.

Leps Score at Will, Down Ingleside in Regional

SAN MARCOS – On the day after Thanksgiving the feast continued Friday for the La Grange football team. The unbeaten Leopards (12- 0) rolled to their third straight blowout playoff victory, this time a 61-24 bashing of Ingleside on a sunny fall  afternoon at Texas State University. The win, La Grange’s third straight postseason triumph by at least 35 points, vaults the
Leps into the state quarterfinals where they will play Gonzales (9-4) at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Bastrop. The Leps played  Gonzales Oct. 11 during the regular season and won 48-19.

Shiner Ends Flatonia’s Playoff Run

After a remarkable run to the regional semifinals, the Flatonia football team saw its 2013 season come to an end Friday in
Cuero thanks to a 35-0 loss to old nemesis Shiner. The Bulldogs hadn’t beaten the Comanches since the mid- 1990s and the streak continued as Shiner used a strong second half to break open a game they led just 7-0 at halftime

Leps Improve to 12-0 With 61-24 Win Over Ingleside

on their first two drives of the game to match the Leps touchdown for touchdown. But eventually the Leps defense
started stopping Ingleside. But that’s not something the Mustang defense was ever able to do against La Grange. The
Leps didn’t punt at all Friday, scoring touchdowns on nine of their 11 possessions -- stopped only by the halftime
clock, and a second half fumble. “It all comes down to stopping the run, it doesn’t matter if they pass for 300 (which Ingleside did Friday, 305 yards passing by quarterback Tristan Barajas to be exact),” Kates said. “Stop the run and run the football like we did today offensively and good things will happen.” That proved to be true

State Quarterfinal Berths on the Line

Before this season the Flatonia football team hadn’t been to the playoffs since 2007 and La Grange hadn’t won a playoff
football game since 2009. But just look at them now. Both the Leps and Bulldogs have won back-to-back playoff games and play Friday in third round games – both one win away from being state quarterfinalists

RTC Dominates in Championship

GARLAND – With tears welling in her eyes, and a gold medal around her neck, Round Top-Carmine volleyball coach
Tanya Nygrin just had to shake her head. “I couldn’t have written a better script,” she said. And she was right. There 
was something very storybooklike to the circumstances surrounding Round Top-Carmine’s state championship this year
– which was the program’s and  Nygrin’s fifth overall.
