Kilgore High School’s track and field athletes that qualified for the area meet are going to have to cool their jets for an extra day. The area meet was added by the University Interscholastic League (UIL) a couple of years ago; it’s an extra round, basically, between the district meets at the Texas high school level and the regional meets. It’s one more hurdle, no pun intended, for potential state-qualifiers to leap in order to get to the state meet in Austin next month. more
There are a handful of games left in the regular season, but Kilgore High School baseball has placed themselves in a great position, squarely atop the District 16-4A standings – a place they’re now accustomed to assuming the last three years. Kilgore beat previously-eighth-ranked Bullard, 9-2, on Friday night in Bullard to complete a sweep of the Panthers. Coach Eugene Lafitte’s Diamond ‘Dogs are now 17-5 overall, and are 3-1 against both Bullard and Spring Hill in the last 2 ½ weeks. The schedule sent the Bulldogs to Gilmer on Tuesday for a game that was to be played after the print deadline for this issue of the News Herald. more
HOUSTON – Off the drag strip, Reigning Mello Yello Champion Steve Torrence and three-time former champion Antron Brown are best friends. Together, they host a bible study group at races like Sunday’s 32nd annual Mopar Express Lane NHRA Spring Nationals, they compete as Chocolate-and-Crème Racing teammates in off-road events like the Mint 400 and, without a doubt, they are each other’s biggest fan. However, when they line up against one another, as they did in Sunday’s semifinals at Houston Raceway Park, all bets are off. more
Kilgore College softball needed a big win or two in Region XIV Conference play, and at the beginning of the week at Corsicana, they got it. The Rangers dealt Navarro a pair of losses – 8-7, and 5-2, respectively – on Monday afternoon. As a result, KC is 19-17 at this writing, and 9-9 in conference play. more
After what seemed to be an endless series of lightning delays, Kilgore led Midlothian Hertiage 2-0 with about 18 minutes left to play in the University Interscholastic League’s Class 4A Region II championship – 18 minutes and 34 seconds from a fourth trip to the state tournament since 2011. But 18 mostly agonizing minutes later, shockingly – in a bad way – it was over. more

Kilgore softball broke a 10-year playoff drought last year, and apparently, the girls have decided to simply not allow another, not even for a season. more
Kilgore lost Tuesday’s game at District 16-4A-leading Bullard, 7-4, even though KHS had its chances – they had the bases loaded in both the top of the fifth and top of the seventh before Bullard escaped. As the regular season winds down coach Cheyenne Kirkpatrick’s Kilgore team all but has the fourth spot in district wrapped up, but would love to move up to the third. more
BASKETBALL Thomas, Goodwyn in all-star game today Kilgore High School senior Seth Thomas helped get the Bulldogs back to the playoffs, and he’ll represent the Bulldogs on the basketball court one more time tonight at Floyd Wagstaff Gymnasium in Tyler, playing in the 16th annual Azalea Orthopedics All-Star Basketball Classic. more
HOUSTON – Steve Torrence, the reigning Mello Yello Champion and the Top Fuel favorite in this week’s 32nd Mopar Express Lane SpringNationals at Houston Raceway Park, has become an inspiration to a new generation of professional drag racers, not so much because of what he has done but because of how he has done it. In an era in which conventional wisdom suggested that no one could succeed at the sport’s top levels without being part of a multi-car team capable of producing proprietary components including engine, chassis and cylinder heads, the Kilgore native has dominated with one primary race car outfitted with “off the shelf” parts. more
