KRUM — Argyle can finally start thinking about the playoffs and defending its Class 4A state title from last year. Krum, on the other hand, must wait to see how its postseason road plays out.
PONDER — In what the locals of Krum and Ponder call the Battle of FM156 — regarding the road that passes through both cities — spirits were high, the gymnasium was packed and homecoming festivities for Ponder were all the buzz. But there was still a basketball game to be played.

KRUM — Conner Pingleton and the Celina offense picked up right where they left off in a dominating win against Aubrey last week, as Pingleton threw for 294 yards and seven touchdowns in the first half to lead the Bobcats to a 69-14 win against Krum on Friday night.

KRUM — The Krum Bobcats hadn’t necessarily struggled on offense in their first three games, but penalties routinely killed drives. In Friday’s contest against the Paradise Panthers, Krum’s offense could not be stopped, it didn’t record any offensive penalties and the defense posted a goose egg on the scoreboard.

Her pitching performance in the District 9-4A title game on Monday night against the Krum Lady Cats displayed why she won such an award. Sanger coach Jae McMinn was proud of her starting pitcher’s performance, not because of her 12 strikeouts or her two key runs she batted in the sixth inning, but because of the mental toughness she displayed late in the contest.
