San Marcos senior outside hitter Alex Contreras and junior Taylor Henderson admit there’s something different about the Lady Rattlers. 

The team won its first two District 14-6A games after finishing non-district play with a 12-20 record. Contreras and Henderson agree that the Lady Rattlers’ attitude on the court changed. “Everyone wants to make it to the playoffs,” Henderson said. 

“That’s just our mindset,” Contreras added. “Just get it done however we can.”

Texas State (1-2) isn’t at the point in its development where it can take Incarnate Word (1-3) lightly.

That’s how head coach Everett Withers and offensive coordinator Brett Elliott feel heading into Saturday’s game.

The two along with Antoine Smith, Parker Fleming and Jules Montinar know exactly how Incarnate Word feels as an Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) program with the chance to knock off a Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) team on the road.

Outdoors: Stories about Game Wardens

Occasionally, I like to report what our state game wardens are doing. Most people think they only enforce game and fish laws. Think again. They are fully vested law enforcement officers, capable of making any kind of arrest for illegal activities. Much of their time is absorbed in apprehending illegal drug activity. Note these examples.

A Bowie County game warden stopped a vehicle for flashing its bright lights on and off at passing vehicles. The driver appeared to be impaired and claimed people were chasing him.

DEL VALLE – The Lady Rattlers extended their District 14-6A winning streak with a 3-1 (22-25, 25-22, 25-13, 25-16) win over Del Valle on Tuesday. 

San Marcos is now 2-0 in district competition and has settled into a groove on the volleyball court. Senior outside hitter Alex Contreras said the team’s improvement has come because they realize it’s “crunch time” if the Lady Rattlers want to make the playoffs.
