Lady Lions are State bound!

Photo submitted by Leindy Estes

ROBY, TX – The Lady Lions will be heading to San Antonio for the State Championship Tournament at the Alamodome. Game 1 for the Lions will be against the Lipan Indians and is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday.

    Coach Fisher has been scheduling early morning practices beginning at 6:45 in the morning in the hopes his team will be better adjusted for the 10 a.m. start time for the tournament opener. When asked about how the early morning practices were treating them, the team responded with simultaneous groans. However, despite the early practices and the long hours of hard work, the girls are more excited to get back to the game than struggling with nerves and anxieties. They just want to get out there and have fun playing the game they love.

One Team, One Dream, Comin’ At Ya With Some Steam By: Shawna Faucett

Congratulations Lady Lions on your 50 to 41 Victory against May!

 

“In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can” - Nikos Kazantzakis. If you don’t already know the Roby Lady Lions came out on top being 14-0 in district this year. Headed to the playoffs with 12 players, 1 coach, and the state tournament on our mind, we’re preparing for anything and everything.

   This year we have faced some major adversity with two of our post players having to set out due to injuries. Our coach, Shannon Fisher, says that great teams must face some type of adversity. Now, both players are back on the court, and we’re ready for some vengeance.

The Lady Yellowhammer Volleyball Team traveled to Vernon Tuesday night to play Miami for the Bi-district Championship. Rotan took the Warriors in the first game 23-17, but lost the 2nd. They came back to win the 3rd, and ended the game winning the 4th set 23-17. “We played really well in three of the four games. We had good serves and we rallied well. Better movement and floor placement. Second game we had trouble with serves and getting the ball back over. One mistake turned into four pretty quick. But games 3 & 4 looked good. I’m proud of them.  It was great effort,” said Coach Ann Reed.

Lions Fall to Winters

The Roby Lions got off to a quick start last Friday night in Winters, but big plays from the Blizzard and Lion mistakes dropped them to 0-6 on the season.

Roby fans had plenty to cheer about early, as senior Braeden Groat picked off a Blizzard pass on Winters’ third play from scrimmage, returning it to the Roby 42. While the Lions were unable to muster a first down, an Andrew Benevides punt pinned Winters near its own goal line at the 3.

Hammers Fall Hard to Hermleigh

The Yellowhammers made the trip to Hermleigh to face the Cardinals on Friday night. The Cardinals were obviously a bit sour over last year’s defeat from the Hammers, and intended on not letting that happen again. The Yellowhammers were prepared for the fight, but, in the end, the Cardinals ended the game early.

Junior Morgan Moffett received the kickoff for the Yellowhammers and downed the ball on the Rotan 36 yard line. Freshman JD Cabaniss stepped up with the most yards of the series, however the progression was...
