College Athletics: Texas State shows progress in most recent APR scores

Sports Editor

Even as Texas State’s on-the-field product has reached new heights during the past six years, it hasn’t come at the expense of what happens inside the classroom.

In fact, for the sixth consecutive academic year, all of the Bobcats’ programs surpassed the bar set by the NCAA for Academic Progress Rates. Texas State hasn’t been hit with APR sanctions since 2007-2008 when the men’s basketball team suffered a reduction in practice time.

High School Football: Rattlers' Horton shines during crossover practice day

Daily Record Sports

Wednesday’s practice validated why San Marcos has its “crossover days” in the spring.

Junior Zedric Horton normally lines up on the defensive side of the ball as a cornerback, but Wednesday afternoon, he took reps with the offense and certainly showed why the coaches have pegged him as a part-time contributor to the wide receiving corps.

High School Baseball: Catching up with the district's playoff teams

Daily Record Sports

At the conclusion of San Marcos’ area finals loss to Georgetown, head coach Bryan Webb had nothing but respect for the Eagles’ senior-laden team.

Webb said he truly hoped the Eagles would go on to make a run at the state championship. Since then, Georgetown is still on that path.

In addition to the Eagles (21-11), Alamo Heights (33-5) — the lone representative of District 27-5A left in the state tournament hunt — has reached the regional semifinals.

Outdoors: There is nothing like teaching kids the art of fishing

Outdoors Columnist

I love to take kids fishing, especially those who have never fished or have yet to catch their first fish.

Recently, we took Joyce Harris and two of her children Brenna Rose and Logan to Aransas Pass for several days of beaching, kayaking, seafood eating and fishing.

One morning, I took Brenna Rose and Logan to Corpus Christi Bay in my new bay boat. The wind had howled for several days previous but that day the forecast called for winds 12 to 17 miles per hour. That’s not real good, but it’s not too bad.

College Athletics: Texas State teams up with HEB to support flood victims

Sports Editor

After returning from the Sun Belt Conference Tournament in Troy, Alabama, the Texas State baseball team received an unusual — albeit important — request.

Following the Memorial Day weekend flood that struck San Marcos and Wimberley on Saturday night — and damaged more than 12,000 homes in the process — an e-mail arrived in assistant head baseball coach Jeremy Fikac’s inbox asking for help.
