Badger Football (1-4) now has an extra week to heal and get ready for district play, having a “bye week” this week. They will meet the Gatesville Hornets (3-2) on October 7th.
The Hornets have beat Lampasas every time they have met (13 times) since 1980. According to Lone Star Football records, they have a record of 29-16-1 over Lampasas.
The only common opponent so far this year has been Robinson. Gatesville beat Robinson 53-35 Friday night. Lampasas had lost a high scoring cliff-hanger game to Robinson by a 68-70 score on Sept. 2nd.
What does all that mean? It means that our Badgers have an opportunity here to stand up to the challenge and turn that record around. Badger Coach Troy Rogers and staff will spend their open week laying plans to do just that.

Lampasas Badger Varsity Tennis won 12-7 over Taylor on Saturday. With this win, the team is 2-0 in district, with a default from Leander Glen, who’s in our district but doesn’t have enough players.
The varsity tennis team goes to Burnet on Thursday the 29th with matches beginning at 4pm. Coach
Kenneth Peiser said that Burnet recently fell to both Taylor and Liberty Hill 10-0 because they were unable to fill a team as well, but still want to play, and that Saturday’s win pretty much clinches the District Championship.
Peiser said that the kids played great Saturday and “all of them were pumped and ready to play. We will have our last week of challenge matches and work on more net play this week in preparation for Thursday and our future area match.”
