I have a hierarchy of things in the wild that get my heart beating. Actually it is a long list, but I will narrow it down to three: elk bugling, migrating geese in an aerodynamic V formation and seeing a bald eagle soaring overhead.
Slow and steady may win the race for the tortoise, but it’s playing havoc with the Carthage Lady Dawgs basketball season so far this year.

LUFKIN — The Carthage Lady Bulldogs are nothing if not consistent so far in the District 17-4A season.
BECKVILLE — J’Koby Williams scored a team-high 21 points as the Beckville Bearcats scored just enough points to slip by the Union Grove Lions 58-56 in Friday night hoops action.
There was a time beginning in the 1970s when Lake Palestine was the best bass fishing lake in North Texas, maybe the state.
The Carthage Lady Bulldogs scored their goals in bunches Tuesday night as they whipped the Marshall Lady Mavericks 10-0 in their home season opener at Bulldog Stadium.
Carthage Head Girls Basketball Coach Michael Johnson went through his timeouts like they were going style in the opening minutes of Tuesday night’s district opener with Palestine.
BECKVILLE — The Ladycats had four players scoring in double figures and came away with a big defense effort as well as they crushed Carlisle 79-15 Tuesday night in district basketball action.

The old saying “don’t let the screen door hit you in the butt on the way out” seems mighty appropriate right now.
The 2020 local year in sports pretty much starts and ends with the same sport in the same place with the same team involved.

It didn’t take long for the talking to start last Friday night in Arlington.
