There are plenty of bouquets and rose ceremonies to conduct as The Bachelor is about to start in another part of our house. So let’s pass out a few roses. First, to the BISD for bringing back its meet
ast weekend after 30 years of the YMBL Relays. Second, to the BISD for calling it the Ed Taylor Relays. Ed would be humbled to have it named after him.
Seven new girls area leaders and eight new boys area leaders emerged from the meet. Ed would be proud of those athletes too. As for team numbers, North Shore and the Titans definitely could win
state team titles in 6A and 5A so the quality was excellent.
More team roses go out to PN-G’s Girls and Bridge City’s Boys for the Team championships at the Bobcat Relays. Josh Smalley and the fine coaching crew at OHS ran off a strong meet producing 11 area-bests.
Those East Chambers Bucs came home with good stuff at Anahuac too. Area teams will spread out this week before many of them take off for spring break. There are at least nine meets scheduled in Southeast Texas during the upcoming Thursday-thru-Saturday window.
More schools (11) and max media exposure should be offered Thursday at the 43rd annual Bridge City meet in Larry Ward Stadium. Thursday offers a smaller area meet with the Longhorn Relays in Hamshire. Rather than stay closer to home, Nederland plans to confront Barbers Hill and Baytown schools at the Eagle Relays in Mont Belvieu on Thursday afternoon.
Port Arthur and West Brook’s explosive squads travel on Friday morning to Clear Creek High School and find plenty of competition at the Ruben Jordan Classic. That invitational ought to deliver some fast times.
Beaumont United has an interesting Saturday afternoon date in Houston with numerous Aldine ISD and other Houston-area schools at the MB Donaldson Relays in Bill Smith Stadium.
