By CLAUDE VINSON
The H.W. Byers Lions welcomed an all-too-familiar foe Tuesday of last week. The Myrtle Hawks were in town on an almost perfect day for ball on the diamond.

Behind the Scoreboard
I know that you have heard the term before many times but again it has all “boiled down to gravy” in the NCAA playoffs for both men and women.
Many of us are perhaps a bit chair weary and bleary-eyed from tracking the progress of the teams which we love and those we love to dislike. Really, it begs to be said that all of these teams which have made it to this point more than deserve our admiration.
Lady Cards lose district games
The Potts Camp Lady Cardinals traveled to Calhoun City Monday, March 26, to play their second division game of the season.
This would be the very first time the Lady Cardinals and the Lady Wildcats faced each other. The Lady Cardinals were excited and ready to go, hoping to take home the victory. However, this was not going to be the Lady Cardinals’ night.
The MHEA Lady Eagles traveled to Springfield, Missouri, on March 20 to compete in the 14 under National Basketball Championship.
The Lady Eagles, the number one seed, had little trouble winning their first three games by an average of 35 points.
