Volleyball: The Woodlands wins outright 16-6A championship

THREE-PEAT!

The Woodlands defeated Kingwood 25-10, 27-25, 25-23 on Tuesday evening to secure an outright District 16-6A championship, the third consecutive league title for the Lady Highlanders and head coach Leslie Madison.

The Woodlands (33-3, 11-1), ranked No. 6 in this week’s Texas Girls Coaches Association Class 6A poll, crushed the Lady Mustangs (21-7-1, 7-5) in the first set before pulling out close victories in the final two games.

“Like I told them, some of the things we have worked on since playing Oak Ridge, we did much better in that match,” Madison said. “I thought our defense and our energy were really good, and Kingwood fought in Games 2 and 3, so it wasn’t like they handed it to us. I was glad we stayed composed and, again, brought a lot of energy.”

With the district title comes a No. 1 seed in the playoffs. The Lady Highlanders, who are on a quest to repeat as state champions, will face off against Montgomery on Tuesday at a neutral site to be determined. click here for complete story

Football: The Woodlands gets defensive in rout of Oak Ridge

Another linebacker down, no problem. The Woodlands, which lost standout linebacker Corey Sanders to a broken arm earlier this season, saw LB Zak Yglecias go down with an injury in practice this week, forcing it to call on Grant Milton. The sophomore responded with a fumble recovery and a sack, helping the Highlanders’ defense stifle Oak Ridge for a 33-6 win Friday at Woodforest Stadium in a key District 16-6A showdown.

“They played great all night long,” The Woodland coach Mark Schmid said. Coming into the game, Oak Ridge was the No. 1 offense in our district, and so we felt like they were a very balanced offense, running and throwing, and we knew we were going to have a big job ahead of us. Hats off to our kids. They played outstanding tonight.”

The Woodlands (7-1, 4-0) pulled away in the third, with running back Patrick Carr notching touchdown runs of 56 and three yards, giving it a 24-0 advantage with 4:27 showing in the quarter. click here for complete story

Football: Carr driving Highlanders into postseason

carrrrThere are several reasons to go and watch the Houston area’s third-ranked Woodlands Highlanders play a football game. But the biggest reason might be tailback Patrick Carr. Or is that the smallest?

Carr, who stands only 5-foot-8 and weighs around 185 pounds, rushed for 143 yards on 21 carries to lead the Highlanders to a much-easier-than-expected 33-6 victory over the Oak Ridge War Eagles last Friday night at Woodforest Stadium.

The win moved the Highlanders to 7-1 overall and 4-0 in District 16-6A play, one game ahead of Atascocita (3-1) and a game-and-a-half up on Oak Ridge (6-3 overall and 3-2 in the league). click here for complete story

5442d5556d990.imageThe Woodlands Christian Academy had just one girl on its high school cross-country roster three years ago. On Saturday, the Warriors stood on a podium in Waco as TAPPS Division III state champions.

TWCA took the team gold with a total score of 82, beating out Boerne Geneva and Austin Brent, which finished with 88 and 89, respectively.

“It’s almost like all of the hard work, all of the effort they’ve put into this, has really come to pass, and it played out like we were hoping,” Warriors coach Tom Earle said. “It was a tough competition, and we knew it was going to come down to us and two other schools. Sure enough, between first place and third place, there were only seven points that separated us, so it was very, very close.”

Hannah Shearer, who is just a sophomore, finished seventh overall with a time of 13 minutes, 14.60 seconds to lead TWCA. Sophie McCannon of Marble Falls was the individual state champion with a time of 12 minutes, 3.40 seconds. click here for complete story

Football: The Woodlands trounces Oak Ridge to clinch postseason spot

The Woodlands improved to 11-0 all-time against Oak Ridge on Friday evening, defeating the War Eagles 33-6 at Woodforest Bank Stadium behind an impressive performance from running back Patrick Carr.

Carr rushed for 143 yards and had touchdown runs of three, 56 and three yards, respectively, to lead the Highlanders (7-1, 4-0) to a crucial District 16-6A victory over the War Eagles (6-3, 3-2).

“It’s a big win for us because it does a lot of things,” The Woodlands coach Mark Schmid said. “It puts us in the playoffs — that win does — and it’s one step closer to being the outright district champion, which is a big goal of our kids. … It was a playoff-type atmosphere, so to come away with a win dealing with all that stuff is good.”

The Woodlands, which boasted the district’s top defense entering the contest, held Oak Ridge’s high-powered offense to just 256 yards. It was the fifth time in eight games that the Highlanders held their opponent to single-digit points.
