How right he was. The Cougars lost their third straight game, all in district play, last Friday 54-52 at Grand Prairie. Ear- lier in the week TCHS dropped a 56-53 decision hosting Marcus. GP's 6'7" inside player Charlie Davis made one of the two free throws with 4 seconds left making it 54-52. Matt Sayman's 35 foot 3 pointer as time ex- pired rattled around the rim but would not fall into the basket. The visitors starting five seniors took advantage of their size and experience. When the Cougars would drop down low on Davis, GP would score from the outside. Antwan Farris made four three pointers, Jennaine Leslie added 13, while Davis tossed in 23. Jaso...

In addition, New York bond-rating agencies told the city last year that they were concerned that rates had not been raised since 1992 and that the city did not have a plan to correct that shortage. The Colony now has a plan, though according to Johnston's fig- ures, the deficit will not be eliminated until 2002. Originally, DMG Maxi- mus, the city's consultant on water rates, had proposed a 10 percent in- crease now, with further increase for the next several years. On Monday, city staff presented Council with plans featuring rate in- creases that would increase revenues by 3, 4, 6 and 7 percent. The staff recommended the 6-percent solution, with the stipulation that rates would not rise again until October 2000 at the earliest. Three citizens, however, protested that amount, saying that th...

But his football career at Southern Methodist Univer- sity will be completely different from what it was at The Colony High School. Briggs, the all-district quarterback for the Cougars' 5-5 A championship team last season, is expected to sign a letter of intent with SMU today (Wednesday), the first day high school seniors can put their college- football decisions in writing. He had orally committed to the Mustangs last month. Though TCHS coach Tommy Briggs said that other Cougars seniors might sign letters of intent during a ceremony slated for 2:30 p.m. at the school cafeteria, no others have yet to make a commitment. The players had to sort through the information received during a flurry of visits over the weekend. Brent Briggs, the coach's son, is the only Cougar being...

10A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, February 3,1999 SPORTS Cougars Wrestle a Victory TCHS captures second straight tourney By RICH LEWIS Staff Writer The Colony High School Wres- tling coach Steve Davis was fooled earlier in the day by Arlington Lamar dropping a third round decision, 43- 40. Such would not be the case in their rematch in the finals, as TCHS beat Lamar 49-43 to capture it's sec- ond consecutive Cougar Classic Dual Tournament Saturday. In the 3rd round match Lamar coach Jeff Province used some trickery shuffling his line- up to give forfeits to the Cougars Kenny Clements (130 pounds) and Chris Thompson (160). He moved his regulars up a weight choosing to take his chances with the Cougars Leo Jauregui (140) andRuss Ausseresses (171). The gamble paid off as Lamar won both matches to squeak by with a 3-point victory. In the championship finals, how- ever, the Cougars refused to fall for the same ploy again. In order to com- bat Lamar's tactics Davi...

"As we go forward the next couple of years, we need to work on pulling people to- gether and I think that's what I bring to the council now. At best, the mayor is first among equals. You can't or- der the City Council to do anything, you have to get them to work to- gether." Friend and supporter, Dan Sligar agrees. "He has the leadership abil- ity to bring people together. Lately we've been overshadowed by Carrollton and Frisco - we need someone to step up and demonstrate leadership to compete with them." As mayor, Kovatch says his first priority would be to "lead the coun- cil through the development and adoption of an action plan to fix our streets. We have waited too long, mainly due to monetary reasons, to move forward aggressively with this project." From there, Kovatch sees workshops with the council to form a plan and then presenting it to the vot...

In fact, Mus- tangs coach Mike Caven and his staff might just let Briggs make that deci- sion himself. "They haven't determined what role I'll play," said Briggs, who was one of two football players from The Colony High School and four Cou- gar athletes overall to sign letters of intent with colleges last Wednesday. "When we get to practice (next fall), they'll let me choose. I know I'll re- turn kicks." Briggs, the all-District 5-5 A quar- terback for TCHS' league champi- ons, was the second Cougars football player to sign with a Texas Division I-A school in the past two years. In 1998, lineman Mike Williams chose the University of Texas. All-district offensive li...

8A The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, February 10,1999 SPORTS TCHS inches away from victory By RICH LEWIS Staff Writer With 3.8 seconds left in the game and down by three points, The Colony High School basketball team hoped to tie FM Marcus and force the game into overtime in District 5- 5A play last Friday. On the road, TCHS had possession of the ball un- derneath the Marauders basket. Jason Hammock received the inbound pass near mid-court, then raced to the hoop and got off a shot before the final buzzer sounded. The shot was good, however Hammock's toe was on the three point line and instead of over- time the Cougars lost the game 72- 71. The loss dropped TCHS's record to 20-7, 4-7, eliminating them from any chance at making the playoffs. Marcus now stands at 20-7, 9-2 and appears headed to post season play. The difference in the game came at the free throw line. The hosts made 19 of 21 attempts while the Cougars only managed to convert on 15 of 25 tries. Trai...
