Lady Pirates came up from behind but not in time

 

It did not have the happy ending that Nordheim Lady Pirates had hoped for when they lost against the Runge Yellowjackets on Sept. 24 in three games.
 
The first game the Lady Pirates started out from behind 0-7. Nordheim coach Randy Castillo called a time out to help the girls gain control and go back out and play as they have been taught. Brittny Bernier came out and came up with two blocks at the net back-to-back. While she served she also came up with four aces that help closed the gap 7-11. However the Yellowjackets took the first game 13-25.
 
Castillo said, “We simply didn't show up to play. We had no communication and the team-mates were not holding each other accountable for the lack of effort that was taking place.”

Wanjura trains for AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship

 

It is hard to believe that any 3-year-old would know what they want to do in life. However, for one young man, it comes with the passion with dirt bike racing. 
 
Jeremy Allen Wanjura, 16-year old of Cuero, is the son of Kevin and Laura Wanjura. He can remember when he was three, his dad racing 4-wheelers and how he wanted to ride motorcycles. 
 
Jeremy said, “[My dad] said when I could ride a [bicycle] without training wheels he would get me a dirt bike and I did that in a day or so.”
 
Because of Jeremy’s determination, Kevin kept his promise and bought Jeremy a Yamaha PW50. That summer they entered him in his first dirt bike race. Jeremy was only 4-years-old.
