Special Lampasas Radio/Radiogram News Release

No Details have been released yet but at about 8:40am this morning the police station was notified that there was a pickup truck in the creek by the Third St. bridge. It appears, from the damage at the scene, that the truck hit the bridge abutment and rolled over into the creek. Firemen went to the scene and lowered a ladder into the truck to see if anyone was in it but no one was found. The curious event and the whole story have not been released yet, though we are told a news release will come in later today.

Lady Badgers Varsity(23-5/2-2) is now in 3rd place in district but looking for a long streak of wins now.

Lampasas heads to Eastside Memorial for its last game of the first round of district this evening. Eastside Memorial is new to the district and they are a weak team, due to a lack of personnel. The beginning of the year roster showed 10 team members, the lowest number in district and we’re not sure they’re all still there.

The team has lost three games and forfeited one for lack of players. The highest number of points they scored in any of those games was 23.

Coach Mark Myers and team members Kamri Corbin and Diane Hurst were in our studio this morning.

They are confident that they will get back into a winning streak after losing the Liberty Hill and Burnet games. So are we!

District Standings Now:

Liberty Hill is 4-0

Burnet is 3-1

Lampasas is 2-2

Salado is 2-2 after beating Taylor 56-34

Taylor is 1-3

Eastside Memorial is 0-4

Gametimes tonight: The Lady Badgers Varsity will play at 5:15pm and JV girls will play in the small gym at 6:45pm. The freshmen game was canceled.

A live broadcast of the varsity games will kick off at about 5pm on KCYL 1450am with Lampasas Radio broadcasters Chuck Lowery and Darrell Brooks.

The Varsity Boys Basketball team(13-11/0-2)

The Badgers head to Austin’s Eastside Memorial tonight to face the winless Panthers. But…Coach Aaron Nuckles says the Panthers have one of the premier basketball prospects in Cory Canada. He is a huge problem for all teams and the Badgers have to find a way to keep him away from the basket.

In addition to the Canada problem, Lampasas is still suffering from the loss of high scoring Mike Murray, out with an ankle injury for at least much of the season.

The team has been working on adjustments that have to be made. Senior Kolbe Penick continues to be the team leader but the Badgers have a huge shooter in freshman Nate Borchardt, if they can get him open. The recent teams have worked hard to defense him out of the picture.

If our guess is right, this could be a high scoring game.

If you’re headed to the game tonight, plan to leave early as the Badger Varsity will start at an earlier time due to some rescheduling (see below).

The Varsity will play at 6:45pm at Eastside Memorial this evening. The JVteam (14-10/2-0) will play Eastside in the small gym at 5:15pm. The freshmen game was cancelled as Eastside has no fish team..

The Badger Varsity game will be broadcast live over 1450AM radio and streamed over lampasasradio.com, listen live, KCYL or Sports. Darrell and Chuck will bring you expert coverage of the action.
