Official 2017-2018 District 16-5A Sports Thread

Recommended Posts

8 hours ago, Mavchamp said:

In softball action:

Sulphur Springs and Hallsville have both advanced to the third round of the playoffs (region qtr finals)

SS will face Forney in a three game Series.

Hallsville will face Prosper

-------------

Sulphur Springs, Texas High, and Hallsville all advance for baseball.

------------

Marshall and Hallsville are each sending someone to the state track meet.

Triple Jump: DeTorian Hurd, Marshall, first, 46-8.75

Long jump: Cortland Centers, Hallsville, second, 22-08.75

-----------

Toss in MP's great run in soccer and SS's basketball run.... it's been a great Winter and Spring for the district.

Now we need some success in the fall.

--------

I'm trying to decide what to do about the 2018-2019 threads.  I like having all the sports for a whole school year together.

But that gets complicated starting next season because of the split divisions for football.

East Texas will have one D1 district with JT and Texas High and the Dallas schools.... and 2 DII districts with MP and all the southern I-20 schools while SS and Greenville will be headed west.  That means keeping up with 3 football districts.  Not to mention we aren't exactly flooded with SS and Greevnille fans on there.  Hmmm.

It means either having a football only thread for 9-5A DivII.... and then starting a separate thread at the end of football season..... OR making a 5A thread and combining a thread both Div I and Div II football and continuing to cover both 5A districts in the winter and spring.

TBH....I'm not sure how much interest 9-5ADII fans are going to have in the D1 district either.  Do you follow JT threads?  lol.  jjjkkkkk.

Otherwise I see a 9-5ADII thread for football (Marsh, Halls, MP, PT, WH, Nac, Lind, Jax)

And then when basketball through spring starts it will be a separate thread for 16-5A (Marsh, Halls, Jax, PT, Nac, Lufkin, JT, WH).

BUT..... it's tempting to add in 15-5A for the winter and Spring sports since East Texas will start playing each other in the first round of the playoffs again (Green, Lind, MP, Texas, MP, Royse City).

Input?

Just wondering what people would prefer..... the new thread will start when softball/baseball/track wraps up for everyone.  

 

 

Don't you mean MP's great run in soccer AND Basketball? 

Hate the district threads will be different. Really enjoyed all the stats, updates, and info you posted on a consistent basis, Mavchamp! Keep up the great work, man!

In the playoffs it is difficult 

Not when you don't have a great offence, and you run up against a good pitcher who's on......

so basically when everything comes together for you

Basically like any shutout, be it regular season or playoffs.....just more likely when one team has a mediocre offense.

What. The. Hell?

as per Jack Stallard’s Twitter:

Hallsville vs Frisco Wakeland 5A playoff series will be home and home series, but not finalized until Tuesday. Per Hallsville's Scott Mitchell, if total score of the Rangers' game tonight is odd...he picks what day he wants to be home. Even score tonight: Wakeland picks.

How do you think i’m discrediting  Hallsville??? They are without a doubt a better team than HP......you seem to think HP is better than they are this year...that’s what I take issue with.

if you look back at what was stated earlier, that’s exactly what I said.....a superior team with a good pitcher shut out a team they should have beaten.

Mavchamp-I have said this before and I will say it again, THANKS for all the work you put in to keep us updated.  As for recommendations moving forward, any chance you could start one will all involved and then just keep the one Marshall is involved in at the time up to date and hope someone will pick up where Marshall is not involved.  Just my thoughts.  Not sure anyone can touch the job you have done and I will sure miss it once Football is over and the other sports roll around, but if done this way and some of us will pick it up, it would be nice to follow all of the 5A teams in our area.  The pay is so good, maybe you could consider doing it all.  Does that make any sense?  

5A Div I (Football Only) (Region II)
Texas High
John Tyler
Mckinney North
Mesquite Poteet
Sherman
West Mesquite
Wylie East

5A Div II (Football Only) (Region III) Focus on this one during football
Marshall
Hallsville
Pine Tree
Mount Pleasant
Jacksonville
Whitehouse
Lindale
Nacogdoches

---------------------------------------

Basketball/Baseball/Softball/Volleyball/Cross Country/Soccer

15-5A (Region II)
Greenville
Lindale
Mount Pleasant
Royce City
Sulphur Springs
Texas High

16-5A (Region II) Focus on this one during Basketball/Baseball, etc.
Marshall
John Tyler
Lufkin
Hallsville
Jacksonville
Pine Tree
Whitehouse
Nacogdoches

Thanks again for all that you do!

Mav fans.... still working on the page.  Getting ready for the 2018 season.

Always looking for ideas and suggestions.

http://www.marshallmavericks.net/

Things I'm working on outside of just new designs:

1.  The top games of all time from 1902 to present day. 

2.  Top Mav teams.

3.  Statistical leaders and other important Mav players that made contributions outside of MHS.

4.  Top Maverick Memories....and heartbreaks.

Hope to have all this posted this summer sometime.

Ultimate goal:

Post the newspaper recaps for every game recorded by the MNM.  Some of them are.... entertaining to say the least from back in the day. LOL.

lol....yup.  Your site is a gem with all that.

I've wanted to do it forever..... ever since the late 90's when I was compiling the old 12-5A records for the old Supersite (Lee, JT, Marsh, Long, Nac, Luf).  Then I did it again in 2002 when we dropped and gained Texas High, Kilgore, PT, Hallsville, and MP.  And again when we picked up Whitehouse, Henderson, and Jacksonville in 2004.

I went back to a Marshall only page again after that.

As you know from your own experience......  it's tedious.... and I think I did it for  14 schools (12 for sure).  Not sure how much of it was even correct.

BUT...... now... thanks to the Marshall Public Library... the Marshall News Messenger is on online from 1900 to present day.  

So it will be a SLIGHTLY easier task.  Theoretically.    We shall see how long it takes to make it happen.

The pressbox at Maverick Stadium will be demolished the day after graduation (which is June 1st).

The new pressbox is suppose to be completed by Week 2 for the Longview game.

New turf- check
Video Board- check
Pressbox- check

Now it's time to work on restrooms and concessions.  (Should have been the #1 priority over the PB IMHO).
Then new bleacher/stadium seats
Improved lighting
New ticket Booths

Small peices at a time.

Idk... the PB looked ok from the field but inside was something else... it’s like someone parked 2 RVs on top of each other and put plaster over it to cover them :lol: 

i haven’t been back to the stadium in a while, but did they ever fix underneath the home side bleachers/concession area?  More specific, the pavement and drainage
