The competition will be held in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma in June. The Region III President's Cup Champions in each age bracket will compete in the National Presi- dent's Cup Tournament in July.

COURTESY PHOTO Hays Football: Making progress Continued from pg. 1 B of them better and that's a good thing. If the season started today, I think both of them would play a lot, but the scrimmages we have in August may change that." Cervenka and Kimbro both said they aren't con- cerned with who wins the quarterback battle. "No matter who starts we'll still be really good friends like we are now," Cervenka said. "I just want to win. I'll play running back if that's where they decide they need me." Kimbro agreed that win- ning is what matters most. "No matter who gets the job we both want to win," Kimbro said. "If I'm not playing quarterback, I want to be somewhere else on the field that helps the team." Shelton is pleased with Hays' choice of captains for the 2010 season: tight end Billy Tabor, linebacker Jordan ]ennings, Rocco and Reyes, who will all be se- niors this fall. 'All four are extremely hard workers and play- ers who lead by example," Shelton said. "They all do a good job in the classroom, and are the kind of student- athletes that make us proud at Hays." Shelton said there's no doubt his team will have to raise its level of play in the new District 27-4A. "We've talked about the fact we're going to have to step it up," Shelton said. "Our players understand what we need to do." Summer workouts be- gin Aug. 2, and Hays will scrimmage twice during the summer, Aug. 14 at Del Valle and Aug. 21 at home against Temple before opening the regular sea- son Aug. 27 against Akins at Burger Stadium. The Rebels begin District 27-4A play against Lehman at Shelton Stadium on Sept. 24. Coach Preuss Moving: Going to Hays Continued from pg. 1B smooth one. "Coach Preuss came in and talked to us and we all think he's cool," Jones said. "We were a little bit worried when Coach McDonald retired, but we feel real good'about the fact they hired Coach Preuss since he's coached at Hays before and everyone here knows him." McDonald and his former assistant have remained close friends on and off the court despite the fact they squared off against each other the last four seasons in district play. "I think it is great that Danny got the job," McDonald said. "He really knows his stuff and will fit right in. Hays had a great tradi- tion before I got there and now I'm confident it will continue." Helen Breyfogle, who played for both Coach McDonald and Coach Preuss on Hays' 2001 state tournament team, said the Lady Rebs couldn't have found a better replacement. "I was so excited for him," Breyfogle said. "I think Coach Preuss will do a great job. I don't think the gifts will have to change much because their coaching styles are so similar. I think he will fill Coach Mac's shoes very well." Preuss said he plans on con- tinuing the style of defense-first play that he used at Lehman and McDonald used at Hays. "I'm a defensive coach," Preuss said. "I believe defense creates offense. Hays' great tradition of playing sound basketball start- ing on the defensive end will continue." Lehman athletic director Steve Davis said he's proud of the job Preuss did building a solid foundation for the Lady Lobo program. "I hated to see him go, but I understand in the coaching busi- ness you have to do what you feel is right for you and your family," Davis said. "He did a great job with our basketball program here and I'm sure he'll do a great job at Hays." Davis said the search for a new girls head basketball coach at Lehman has begun and he hopes to hire Preuss' replacement in the near future. Hays 7-on-7: Young Rebs looking to improve Continued from pg. 1 B That still left Hays trailing by two points, but the Rebels went for the win and Kimbro hit Cervenka with a two-point conversion pass to seal the vic- tory. IT Sivils also had a big morn- ing at Alamo Heights, catching two touchdown passes in the tourney. ' few of the players we went up against Saturday have already committed to Division I schools, so there is definitely an adjustment period for a lot of our guys that only have freshman and IV experience," Ryan Shelton said. "Our goal right now, as it always is in the summer, is to get these guys ready for the fall. Right now we're trying out a few players at new positions to see how that works." Cervenka said he thinks de- spite the slow start, Hays will definitely be a team to con- tend with as the 7-on-7 season moves along. "We're just getting started, but I've seen a lot of positives already," Cervenka said. "The defense is coming around, and the offense is starting to click. I think we just need to work out a few kinks. Hays made the state 7-on-7, tournament in Col- lege Station last year and Ryan Shelton said he's con- fident the Rebs will make a run at a repeat trip to state at one of their final two tournaments, either this Saturday at Alamo Heights or on June 26, when Hays hosts its own tourney. To advance, a team must fin- ish in the top two at a state- qualifying tournament. "I definitely think state is a realistic goal," he said. "We're young, but I think we have a chance to develop into one of the best 7-on-7 teams we've had here." Cervenka said the state tour- nament is already on the minds of many of the Hays players. "Qualifying for state is a big goal," Cervenka said. "Our goal is not only to qualify but to win a few games once we get there." In addition to tournament play, Hays will continue to play two regular season games each Tuesday night at Shelton Sta- dium through July 6. The 64- team state 7-on-7 tournament will be held July 9-10 at Texas A&M University.
