Medley, a transfer from Ten- nessee, rushed for 152 yards on 24 carries in his first var- sity start and junior quarter- back Matt Anguiano passed for three touchdowns as Lehman thumped the Cougars 32-16 at Burger Center last Thursday night.

In the first matchup be- tween the two county rivals since 2003, the Hays offense scored seemingly at will against the Rattlers early en route to a 34-17 victory. "Our coaches have been telling us since two-a-days how much these guys want to beat us," Hays guard Kakhi Maxwell said. "It's San Marcos - it's always going to be a big game no matter how long it's been since we played them." Hays scored the first five times it had the football, as sophomore quarterback Caleb Kimbro found multiple ways to lead his team into the end zone. On the opening drive of the game Maxwell drove two would-be San Marcos tacklers into the ground with a pancake block that freed up Michael Romero for a 9-yard touchdown run. Hays (2-1) used Kimbro's 28-yard keeper on third-and- long to set up its next score, a Tony Garza 2-yard dive. The most dramatic play in the game came with three minutes gone in the second quarter on second-and-21. That's when Hays head coach Bob Shelton pulled a little Hal- loween trickery several weeks early, as Kimbm took a reverse pitch from junior quarterback Mason Cervenka deep in the backfield before pulling up and lofting a pass to a wide open Iy Green for a 26-yard touchdown to make it 20-3. "We needed something to happen there," Shelton said. "Those plays are always pretty when they work." After San Marcos (0-2) countered with a 17-yard Ryan Matin touchdown rtm, Kirn- bro's 40-yard run set up his 8-yard touchdown pass to Billy Tabor with less than a minute to play in the first half and Hays led 27-10 at the break. The Rebels put the game away late in the third quarter Michael Romero followed the key block of guard Kakhi Maxwell on the Shelton Stadium. Hays travels to Hutto to play the undefeated Hippos on when Kimbm, who finished with 155 total yards, burst free for a 26-yard run to set up his own 12-yard scoring scamper. "We had guys out of position too many times on defense," San Marcos head coach Steve Van Nest muffed punt by Stephen Luna, a 10-yard tackle for loss by big defensive lineman Austin Reyes and an interception by Rebel linebacker Mark Old- ham kept the Rattlers at bay. "You could .tell by the atmosphere when we walked said.

Hays next travels to Hutto for a game with the Hippos on Friday night. The I-lippos are one of the top ranked teams in Central Texas and have averaged more than 50 points in sprint- ing out to a 3-0 record this season. "Hutto is explosive and quick, but we're just as ex- plosive and quick," said Hays defensive lineman Austin Reyes. "We're definitely not intimidated by them."

BY JASON GORDON freepresssports / In a game the Hays volley- ball team desperately needed to win, the Lady Rebels were in need of someone to fill some big shoes. With the team's leading hit- ter Kaylea Beck sidelined with an Injury, sophomore Natalie Valdez stepped up when Hays needed her most. Valdez helped the Lady Rebs surge out to a two-game lead Tuesday night on the road against Clemens, and Hays went on to win 25-23, 25-21, 17- 25, 25-19. Valdez, who had a career-high 10 kills, did most of her damage in those pivotal first two games as Hays improved to 1-1 on the District 27-4A season. "Natalie really proved she is up for the challenge in big games, Hays,, setter Hannah Ramsey said. With Beck out, we needed some of our ymmger hitters to play well and that's ex- actly what she did."
