DAYTON, Tenn. — Lee Livesay had options, but he committed to a singular game plan based on patience and execution to win the Guaranteed Rate Bassmaster Elite at Chickamauga Lake with a four-day total of 58 pounds, 2 ounces.
Well, the Leverett’s Chapel Lions will have to pick themselves up by the boot straps after last weekend’s District 10-1A, Division I loss at Union Hill, and try to get into the UIL’s six-man football postseason, a familiar trip for coach Andy Bates’ Lions.
Sabine has only two games left, and after the program had its best-ever season a year ago, they’ll hope to do enough to get into the UIL Class 3A, Division I playoffs and do some damage.
DALLAS — Responding to the challenge posed by veteran Doug Kalitta, Kilgore’s Steve Torrence went wire-to-wire Sunday at the Texas Motorplex, qualifying No. 1 and then driving his Capco Contractors dragster to a signature victory in the 35th annual AAA Texas FallNationals.
CHAPEL HILL – This District 9-4A, Division I game had about everything: back and forth, a record-setting performance by a Kilgore player, a dramatic rally by Chapel Hill, and a hold-on-for-dear-life performance by Kilgore’s defense late in the game.
The 2020 season has been very 2020-ish for Sabine High School football so far, starting out on a good note, and lately, unfortunately for the Cardinals and their fans, not so much.
Well, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty.
That's what just about every high school volleyball team in the state is doing right now, with the playoffs only about two weeks away.
The open dates, unless there are more forced by COVID-19, are done, and the football programs at the Rusk County schools are all set for games this weekend – big games, in all three cases.

LSU is out of The Associated Press college football poll for the first time since 2017 and is the first defending national champion to drop from the rankings in nine years.
It does seem as though the two unbeaten teams in District 9-4A, Division I –that’d be Kilgore and Lindale – are on a collision course.
But thoughts of a de facto district championship game on the final weekend of the regular season will have to wait. Both teams have business to take care of first.
Kilgore’s tennis team is just that in the fall – a team. In UIL tennis, the fall season is geared toward how players do collectively, just like football or volleyball.

That was then – two weeks ago at Troup, in the district opener for both teams – and as they say, this is now.
It’s been two weeks since Kilgore won its first District 9-4A, Division I game, and everybody knows what happens when you open the door and let dogs out after they’ve been penned up a while.
Sabine volleyball won again Friday, but stood pat in the state rankings, and Kilgore stepped out of district for a makeup game against a much-bigger school – and won.
ST. LOUIS – Steve Torrence left the starting line first, but that was all that went right for the two-time reigning NHRA Top Fuel world champion in a final round race with Doug Kalitta to determine the Top Fuel winner in Sunday’s 23rd Mopar Express Lane Midwest Nationals at World Wide Technology Raceway.

ARLINGTON (AP) — Baker Mayfield got the homecoming stuff out of the way quickly as the Cleveland quarterback talked about preparing for his second NFL game in Texas.

For Kilgore, it was just about a must-win. For Sabine, it was about maintaining dominance over the opposition and increasing that lead in the district standings. And for Overton, it was a chance to move up – but it was a missed opportunity.

Those people obviously don’t know the two-time reigning NHRA Top Fuel world champion, nor his work ethic.
