Texas High pitcher Rian Cellers and Tyson Gray limited the Lions to six hits and one earned run. Cellars, the starter, struck out six batters in six innings. Gray fanned one in an inning in relief. Andrew Claude took a tough loss on the mound for Greenville, striking out three Texas High hitters and giving up only two runs on two hits through six innings. Landon Koger pitched the seventh for the Lions, allowing one run on two hits and striking out one Tiger batter. “It was a tough loss,” said Greenville coach Blaine Roman. “Andrew Claude pitched a great game through six innings, giving up only two runs and striking out three Tiger hitters. Our defense played really well. Our offense struggled some as their pitcher kept us off balance.” Luke Adel scored Greenville’s only run in the fourth inning when he came home from third on a bounce-out by Garrett Phillips to the Texas High first basemen Zane Dodson. Claude led the Lions with two hits. Adel, Jose Martinez, Tyler Seale and Wyatt Spivey also collected hits for the Lions. Jackson Halter, Aaron Prince and John Adams drove in runs for the Tigers.

The Greenville Lions hung tough with No. 24 Mount Pleasant but dropped their 2019-20 basketball finale, 55-51 on Tuesday at the Lions Den. Mount Pleasant clinched the undisputed District 15-5A title with the victory to go 29-3 for the season and 9-1 in district play. The Tigers will advance to the bi-district playoffs. The Lions finished at 26-11 overall and 3-7 in district. “We played the toughest game that we have played in all our district games,” said Greenville coach Chris Williams. “I think when we took care of the basketball, we got the shots we wanted. In the half-court game, we played solid defense. Turnovers were the difference in the game.” It was Senior Night and Greenville honored senior basketball players Tyrecus Davis, Desmond Johnson, Qualyn Williams, Quin Anderson, Kedrin Carter, Cameron Smith, Josh Dixon, Jeremiah Abrego and Dawaun Jimmerson in pre-game ceremonies. Anderson fired in 14 points to lead Greenville, including four 3-point baskets. Abrego and Carter pumped in eight, while Marcus Hawkins, Davis and Smith tallied seven. Smith missed part of the second half after suffering an injury. Payton Chism and Jamarion Brown each pumped in 17 points to lead Mount Pleasant. Former Greenville Lions coach Dexter Patrick was in attendance to watch his former team play....

The Greenville Lions lost two district football opponents and gained a new one following Monday’s announcement by the University Interscholastic League. They’ll also be moving to a new district for the other sports that will include traditional power Highland Park, Mesquite Poteet and others. The UIL announced the realignment/reclassification information for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 athletic seasons. The Lions, who were in the nine-team District 8-5A, Division II in football will keep the same number: 8-5A-II and district opponents Corsicana, Ennis, Forney, North Forney, Royse City and Sulphur Springs. Two teams that were in the district, Kaufman and Terrell, moved down to 4A. Crandall, a former non-district opponent, is moving up from 4A to 5A to join the district. Greenville will play seven district football games as opposed to eight and three non-district games, following a more traditional schedule. “I’m glad it’s not a nine-team district,” said Lions coach Darren Duke. “The travel’s about the same.” The Lions made the football playoffs for the first time since 2003 when they finished fourth in 8-5A-II back in the fall. “My thing is, we’ll be very competitive no matter what district we’re in,” said Duke. The Lions and Lady Lions will be moving out of District 15-5A for the other sports into District 13-5A. They will only keep Royse City from 15-5A and will face Highland Park, Mequite Poteet, Crandall, Forney, North Forney and West Mesquite. “I think travel-wise it’s going to benefit our fans and our student-athletes,” Duke said of the District 13-5A. “It’s going to be a step up to be in an eight-team district (in the other sports).” Mount Pleasant, Sulphur Springs and Texas High of Texarkana will remain in 15-5A. They’ll be joined by Hallsville, Longview, Longview Pine Tree and Marshall. The new District 13-5A will be very competitive in all of the sports. Highland Park has won state in soccer, golf, tennis and cross country but the former state champion Scots will be in Division I for football. “I think Poteet is pretty solid in all of them,” said Duke....
