It’s officially summer and that means it’s time for a couple days under the sun in College Station. That’s where three area football teams will be this week for the Texas 7-on-7 State Championships.

WACO — Belton’s Kelsey Surovik and Academy’s Lilli Stewart have different post-high school plans, but the duo shared similar emotions Saturday following the sixth annual Heart of Texas Fellowship of Christian Athletes Super Centex Victory Bowl volleyball match.

BELTON — The Red team had never claimed victory over the Blue in the three previous editions of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Victory Bowl softball game. For most of Friday’s contest at UMHB’s Dee Dillon Field, it appeared that history would not repeat itself.

BELTON — Holland’s Patrick Kruger and the rest of the coaching staff selected to oversee the Blue team naturally will have to formulate some strategy for tonight’s fourth-annual Heart of Texas Fellowship of Christian Athletes Super Centex Victory Bowl baseball game at Mary Hardin-Baylor’s Red Murff Field.

BELTON — Alexis Lewis didn’t need a lot of time to realize the level of talent that surrounded her Wednesday on Mary Hardin-Baylor’s Dee Dillon Field. The Temple product watched as players from across Central Texas took batting practice and routinely cleared the outfield wall as the afternoon sun baked the field on the first day of practice ahead of Friday night’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes Super Centex Victory Bowl softball game.

GEORGETOWN — Belton sophomore Dallas Hankamer always will be able to reminisce and think about when he earned a bronze medal as a sophomore in the UIL Boys Golf State Championships.

Of course, his memories probably always will produce both positive and negative feelings — a proud achievement, on one hand; on the other, a frustrating sense of what might have been.

GEORGETOWN — Dallas Hankamer is no average sophomore.

During the opening round of his first appearance in the UIL Boys Golf State Championships on Monday, the Belton medalist played like a savvy veteran. On a breezy day when his ball-striking wasn’t as consistent as desired, Hankamer’s masterful short game saved him time and again and had him tied for the lead in the Class 6A tournament at Legacy Hills Golf Club.
