Meadow's Nyomi Alvarado was crowned 2021 Homecoming Queen. Brady Parker was given the honor of Football Hero.

After defeating Seminole last Saturday and then defeating Lamesa the Brownfield tennis team clinched the District 4-4A championship. This is not the first 4A district title won by Brownfield Head Coach Rich Hammons and his team, but it is the first they have won as an invited 3A school playing in Class 4A. The team has been playing in Class 4A in the fall for the past four years, after receiving permission from both the University Interscholastic League and Texas Tennis Coaches Association. Last year, Brownfield played in the playoffs for the first time as the No. 3 seed from the district, but this year the Lady Cubs and Cubs will go in as the top seed of District 4-4A. Brownfield has not been playing 4A tennis in the fall for many years according to head coach Rich Hammons.

SEPTEMBER 27-OCTOBER 1

Sports

It was a game between two winless teams looking to crack their goose eggs when the Brownfield Cubs and Lake View Chiefs met at Cubs Stadium on Friday night. The game had an extra motivation as the Cubs were looking to give their head coach Aarrhon Flores his first homecoming win as the Brownfield head coach. But on the night senior Gabi Fields was crowned 2021 Homecoming Queen, the football team was shut out for the first time this season in a game marred with questionable calls and no calls by the referees against the Cubs.

Wellman-Union fell at home to Grandfalls-Royalty 49-0 in their first game under new head coach Kody Bell. The Wildcats will be on the road against Hart on Friday with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. in non-district play.

The Meadow Broncos, after struggling early in the season, were able to come away with a huge Homecoming win Friday night against the Grady Wildcats. The Broncos topped the Wildcats 52-46. After a slow moving first quarter, the two teams began an offensive battle in the second quarter that would last until the final seconds of the game. The Broncos were down early in the fourth and final quarter but were able to hold the Wildcats on a few possessions to tie the game up late in the quarter. With a little over 20 seconds remaining, the Broncos attemped an onside kick, which was recovered by the Broncos. The onside kick return put the Broncos in perfect field position, allowing for a touchdown pass to be completed with only 17 seconds left on the clock. Once the Broncos had the lead it was up to the defense to shut down the Wildcats. The Broncos defense held the Wildcats on their final possession, sealing the victory at 52-46.

The Brownfield volleyball team returned home after its first two game losing streak a four sets loss to Wall and a five sets loss to Greenwood. The Lady Cubs are the defending co-district champions, and opened district play at home against the Friona Squaws.
