TROY, Ala. — Maybe Texas State went to the well one too many times.

Throughout the latter half of the regular season, the offense often saved the day for the Bobcats.

Yet, during Saturday’s semifinals of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, UL Lafayette flipped the script: The eventual champions forced Texas State to win a pair of pitcher’s duels.

It’s quite fitting that both the new stadium and athletic facility opened within the same calendar year.

What’s even more fitting is that whichever way you look at it, San Marcos High School was an athletic program on the rise this year in nearly every sport.

The football team being back in pads for spring practice, more or less, symbolizes the end of the 2014-15 athletic year and it’s time to take a look back.

TROY, Ala. — UL Lafayette turned to a not-so-secret elixir to shut down Texas State's hot-hitting lineup: near-perfect pitching and flawless defense.

The Bobcats — who went into Saturday's semifinals of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament with two shots to knock off the Ragin' Cajuns and advance to a championship bout against top-seeded South Alabama — watched as their offense cooled off at the most inopportune time.

The NBA draft lottery has come and gone and the Minnesota Timberwolves were able to secure the first overall pick.

The suddenly woeful Los Angeles Lakers will select second after bypassing the New York Knicks while the Philadelphia 76ers held on to the third pick.

Other than New York tumbling down the draft board there weren’t many surprises. The Heat and Lakers kept their picks and the rest of the teams stood pat.
So for San Antonio Spurs fans, it was a pretty uneventful half hour.

It’s not that I tend to misplace or lose things in stacks of test papers or handouts for class but sometimes things are at the bottom of the pile that have been there for awhile.  

I was filing old tests and handouts from this semesters classes and sorting out what to keep and what to throw away.

Power restoration continues in damaged areas

Following historic, catastrophic flooding along the Blanco River, Pedernales Electric crews have been working for more than 24 hours in efforts to restore power to the devastated region that has seen more than 350 homes swept away, more 1,000 residents displaced, eight people missing and at least one known fatality.

Curfew issued tonight due to safety concerns

The Hays County Judge, City of San Marcos and Wimberley Officials have instituted a nighttime curfew this evening due to the potential safety concerns posed in the San Marcos and Wimberley area.  We have numerous downed power lines, washed out roadways and barriers that makes evening travel very risky.  Please restrict all unnecessary movement.  Officers will be monitoring the areas overnight but many areas may not be covered at all times and we want to ensure the safety of our citizens.  We appreciate your cooperation with these efforts.
