It was a heartbreaking loss for the Lady Rebs, who led by four points in regulation with five seconds left before Huntsville made a miraculous come- back to send the game to overtime. "That will be a tough loss to forget," McDonald said. "The girls fought hard, and this senior class should always be proud of what they accomplished." Hays baseball team earns co-dis- trict title and makes run to regional quarterfinals: Hays unquestionably had one of the best baseball teams statewide in Class 4A in 2009, with seven players that ultimately went on to play at the collegiate level. But a second-round playoffloss to Little Cypress-Mauriceville left the Rebs well short of their goal of making it to state.

"Cesar improved each and every year he was here at Leh- man," said Robinson. "He was outstanding at the plate this year and he was very consistent for us in the outfield. He deserved a spot on all-district." Cerda will be among five let- ter winners slated to return for Lehman next season, along with expect from this year's team, as few Hays players had any varsity experi- ence. The Rebels proved their might with comeback win after comeback win this season. In all, Hays won 10 games they once trailed, including six in district play alone. The Rebels finished 11-1 in district play, and dramatically beat league favorite San Marcos on the Rattlers' home field in comeback fashion to secure a co-district title. Hays went on to beat Montgomery and Nederland in the playoffs, before running into a brick wail in the regional quarterfinals against No. 5 Brenham. Still, Hays finished the season 24-9 overall as area champs. "The mark of this team was definitely all those comebacks," Hays head coach Doug Ragsdale said. "They honestly never felt like they were ever out of a game.

Lobe Review: Despite injuries, they made strides Continued from pg. 1 B record crowd of more than 1,000 screaming Lobo fans turning out to witness history at Bobcat Baseball Field at Texas State University. Even though the Lobos bowed out of the playoffs in two games to state-ranked Brenham, it was awesome to hear the place explode when the Lobos gained early momentum. It had all the makings of a col- lege atmosphere. Lehman boys soccer misses the playoffs for the first time In school history: The season began as normal as ever for head coach Jay Sansom and the perennial area power Leh- man boys soccer team. The Lobos opened the season by winning four straight games to capture the Rebel Cup, in- cluding a 2-0 blanking of rival Hays in the championship game. Surprisingly enough, that turned out to be the high- light of their season. A few nights later in Round Rock, leading scorer and top defender Oscar Garcia went down with one of the scari- est injuries Sansom had ever seen. As Garcia raced down- field on a scoring run, he ran full force into a much bigger Westwood defender and the collision sent Garcia out for the season with a serious knee injury, and the Lobos down for the count. They could never seem to overcome Garcia's injury. When second-leading scorer Oscar Martinez was also lost a couple of weeks into the district campaign, it left the Lobos fighting an uphill battle for the remainder of the sea- son. They finished fifth in the district. It was the first time in Sansom's decorated coaching career that one of his teams failed to reach the playoffs. With both Oscars set to return for their senior seasons next year and the new district be- ing a lot less challenging, to say the least, it's pretty safe to say that Sansom and the Lobos have a great chance to be back in the playoffs next season.
