Tonight is the last local performance of Ingram Tom Moore High School's rendition of Playing for Time by Arthur Miller. It's at 7:30 at Warrior Theatre in Ingram. This piece will then be performed for UIL One-Act Play competition at Llano High School on Thursday. Last year this group advanced to the regional finals and just missed going to state. Come out and support them.

Saw Graham Douglass over the weekend -- he was back for Spring Break from Syracuse. On his return he'll be in Anything Goes, and then returns at the end of the semester to take part in Playhouse 2000's version of the same play.

Also saw Ryan King, Chris Wilson, Lauren Hensley, Gary Givens and Anthony Goodman during the weekend -- all back for break.

Well the Lady Antlers did what just a week ago seemed improbable if not impossible.

From the Kerrville Daily Times:

The Lady Antlers had just beaten Fredericksburg, 4-1, after starting District 27-4A play 0-3-1, and Sletten felt it was appropriate to give her team a message following its first district win.

“I basically told the girls that we were better than the way we were playing,” Sletten said. “I also told them that Fredericksburg beat Uvalde and Bandera and that we could do the same.”

Sletten’s players did just that as Tivy beat Bandera and Uvalde to move into third place at 3-3-1. While the Lady Antlers lost consecutive matches to Boerne and Alamo Heights, they remained in third place thanks to Bandera’s wins against Fredericksburg and Uvalde.

Tivy punched its ticket to its ninth-straight postseason Friday with a 2-0 win at Fredericksburg.

“No one wants to be part of the team that has the playoff streak snapped,” Sletten said. “These girls achieved the goal of keeping the streak alive.”

Now Tivy (7-11-2) faces New Braunfels in the bi-district round of the Class 4A state playoffs. The kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. Friday at New Braunfels.

Meanwhile the boys ended the season with a 2-2 tie:

The Tivy Antlers and Fredericksburg Billies embarked on a good, old-fashioned defensive struggle in their final District 27-4A match of the season Friday night at Antler Stadium that ended in a 2-2 tie.

The Antlers finished with a 6-10-4 overall record for the season and 2-5-3 mark in District 27-4A with Friday’s outcome.

Several Tivy seniors enjoyed solid performances in their final match in an Antlers’ jersey. Eric Martinez, Jeremy Ervin, Robert Allard, Juan Claudio, Alan Harst, Andrew Tucker, Kevin Devore, Daniel Cortez, Trey Prior, and Travis Holden all played key roles for Tivy in their final home match.
