If the System is Not Broken, Don’t Fix It
from Cy Fair Sun
The separation of public and private schools at the high school level is a very good thing, and both parties appear to be content with the current setup.
But State Sen. Dan Patrick (R-Houston) wants to change the landscape of high school athletics in Texas.
Public high schools in Texas compete in the University Interscholastic League (UIL), and private schools have membership in Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) and other similar organizations.
Patrick is the author of a bill that would require the UIL to admit private schools into its ranks, starting in 2010-11. The senate bill made it out of the Senate Education Committee and is expected to be heard soon on the Senate Floor.

Polytechnic Hitter is Also a Savvy Base-runner
from Fort Worth Star Telegram
Whether it is a sacrifice, stealing a base or rattling an opposing pitcher, Emilio Romo will do whatever it takes for his team.

As of last week, Romo was hitting .565, third among area 4A players, had knocked in 19 runs, scored 25 times and was tied for the 4A area lead with 18 steals. But none of that means anything to him.
