The Cougars went winless in January and haven’t won since a 63-55 victory over Bossier Parish on Dec. 9. Coastal Bend fell to Jacksonville 83-68 on Jan. 27. The Jaguars built a five-point lead at the break, 41-36, before pulling away in the second half by outscoring the hosts 42-32.

The Skidmore-Tynan boys basketball team suffered a pair of losses to San Patricio County rivals Odem and Taft over the last week. The Bobcats fell to Odem 47-36 to close out their first half of their district slate, then lost to Taft 51-37 on Tuesday night. The losses dropped Skidmore to 8-17 overall on the year. The Bobcats are now 1-5 in District 29-3A play and sit in fifth in the district standings. Aransas Pass leads the district with a perfect 6-0 mark, while Odem is second at 5-1. Taft is third at 4-2 and Mathis owns the No. 4 spot at 2-4. The Bobcats are one game back of Mathis for the district’s final playoff spot. In the loss to Taft, the Bobcats fell behind early and lost all four quarters to the Greyhounds. Taft led 8-4 after one, 18-9 at half and 30-18 after three quarters. The Greyhounds then won the fourth 21-19. “This was an important game. Our energy was low and theirs was high,” said Bobcat coach Erasmo Huerta. “We had to play catch-up the whole night. They had a good shooting night while we struggled to hit the rim.” Joe Torres accounted for nearly all of his team’s points, pouring in a team-high 24 points. Brody Haight chipped in eight points. Against Odem, the second quarter proved to be the difference for the Bobcats. The game was tied at 10 apiece through one, but the visiting Owls outscored S-T 14-6 in the second to go ahead for good. Another deadlock in the third, this time at 14-all, gave the Owls a 38-30 edge going to the fourth. Odem won the final period 9-6. “Our defense was very aggressive and forced them to earn every shot they took,” Huerta said. “We were down five in the fourth, we just couldn’t get over the hump.” Torres was again the lone Bobcat in double figures with a team-best 17 points. A.J. Arredondo and Justin Hernandez each had six points.

MATHIS – Hundreds of parents and kids of all ages poured into Lake Corpus Christi to enjoy a day of fun and fishing. The lake was stocked with trout the night before the event to ensure everyone had a chance to take home a big (or small) catch on Saturday. Free fishing poles donated by the Ed Rachal Foundation were distributed out to the children by the Orange Grove Cub Scouts, Troop 32. There were also plenty of games, kayaking and food at the event provided free of charge by Lake Corpus Christi and H-E-B. Eladio Garcia traveled all the way from Beeville with his four kids to participate in the free fishing event. “I’ve been wanting to come out every year but I always work,” Garcia said. “So I’m off this time, and it’s a nice day, and it’s a good event for kids to come out and have fun.” The Lake Corpus Christi annual Kid Fish event is the state park’s biggest draw of the year with hundreds of kids from all over the area participating in the free family gathering.

BEEVILLE – The A.C. Jones wrestling team split its two duals as part of a triangular at Marion B. Horton Gymnasium on Jan. 28. The Trojans downed Uvalde 54-12 in the night’s second dual, then fell 42-30 to Highlands in the nightcap. The win over Uvalde featured eight forfeit victories for Beeville. David Villarreal, Ethan Hodges, Jesse Castro, Seth Hodges, Brandon Francisco, Jaden Lightheart, Ernest Gomez and Jacob Perez each won by forfeit for the Trojans. Joseph Ramirez had the Trojans’ lone non-forfeit victory in the 160-pound match, which was the second match of the dual. Ramirez got the first takedown and quickly claimed a near fall, then, with 39 seconds left in the opening period, he claimed the pin over Edgar Sanchez. The first match, 138, of the dual went to Uvalde’s Jonathan Hernandez. He pinned Benito Virillas in 41 seconds. Uvalde’s Jesse Davila won the 120-pound match to finish the dual. Leading 7-1 after a takedown and a pair of near falls in the first period, Davila pinned Lorenzo Salazar 18 seconds into the second period. In the lone girls match of the dual, Uvalde’s Adelhyda Perez pinned Alethea Camareno 24 seconds into the second period. The Highlands dual featured a nearly-full slate of matches with only four forfeits, two for each side. Villarreal and E. Hodges had the forfeit wins for Beeville at 113 and 126, respectively. Highlands won by forfeit at 145 and 170. The dual started at 132 with a victory for the Trojans. After scoring the initial takedown, Castro scored a pinfall victory at the 1:51 mark of the first period over Uvalde’s Alex Rocha. Uvalde rattled off three wins by pin and two by forfeit over the next five matches to go in front. At 138, Joseph Santos pinned Virillas in 1:28. After the forfeit at 145, Joseph Mangaccat pinned S. Hodges at 152 in 2:27 to make it 18-6 Owls. Misael Chapa followed that with a 58-second pinfall victory over Ramirez at 160. The Owls’ forfeit victory at 170 made it 30-6. Brandon Francisco snapped the Trojan losing skid with an 18-12 win at 182 over Jared Cephas in what was perhaps the night’s most entertaining match. Francisco built a 6-2 lead in the opening period thanks to a trio of takedowns, then quickly went ahead 10-3 on two more takedowns after Cephas chose to go neutral after the first. After the second takedown, Francisco finally rolled Cephas, claiming three more points on a near fall to go up 13-3. Cephas survived, though, and rallied back. He scored his first takedown on Francisco and then turned him for a near fall, making it 13-8. Francisco survived the near fall and scored an escape late in the period to take a 14-8 lead into the final period. Francisco chose neutral to start the third, which Cephas capitalized on for the period’s first takedown. Francisco, after a warning for stalling, reversed out from underneath to take control. Cephas scored an escape shortly thereafter, but Francisco answered with another takedown, his sixth of the match. Cephas again escaped, but not until the final seconds, giving Francisco the decision. Highland won the next two matches by pinfall. Kyle Ellis beat Lightheart in 3:25 at 195 and Antonio Hernandez beat Gomez in 3:24 at 220. Perez got Beeville another win in the heavyweight match with an 8-3 decision over Joe Martinez. Perez led 2-0 on the strength of the first period’s only takedown, then, from the down position, went up 3-0 on technical violation and 5-0 on a reversal. Martinez scored an escape and then a quick takedown to make it 5-3, but Perez escaped late in the period for a 6-3 lead going to the final period. Martinez chose neutral to start the third, but Perez scored the first takedown for the match’s final points. That made it 42-12 Highlands. The final match of the dual saw Salazar claim a pin late in the second round over Brandon Trueblood. The match was tied at 4 after the first period. Trueblood chose down and quickly scored a reversal. A technical violation on Trueblood made it 6-5, but he pushed the lead to 8-5 with a near fall. Salazar fought off his back, though, and reversed into control, then quickly turned Trueblood and scored the fall at the 3:47 mark. E. Hodges’ forfeit win capped the dual and provided Beeville’s final points in the loss. The only official girls match of the dual saw Beeville’s Josie Hodges lose by pin in the second period. Hodges led 8-4 after one on the strength of two near falls, but a minute into the second, she got turned and was pinned at the 3:00 mark. McCallum quadrangular Beeville swept through all three of its matches at a quadrangular at McCallum on Jan. 23. The Trojans beat Connally 48-27, Crockett 42-35 and host McCallum 42-27. Against Connally, Villarreal won by pin at 113, E. Hodges won by pin at 126, Castro won by pin at 132, Virillas won by forfeit at 138, S. Hodges won by forfeit at 152, Ramirez won by forfeit at 160, Francisco won by pin at 182 and Gomez won by pin at 220. Against Crockett, Villarreal won by forfeit at 113, E. Hodges won by pin at 126, Castro won by pin at 132, Virillas won 17-11 at 138, Francisco won by forfeit at 182, Lightheart won by pin at 195, Gomez won by pin at 220 and Perez won 4-0 at heavyweight. Against McCallum, Villarreal won by forfeit at 113, E. Hodges won by pin at 126, Virillas won by forfeit at 138, Ramirez won by pin at 160, Francisco won by pin at 182, Lightheart won by forfeit at 195 and Gomez won by pin at 220.
