Eustace sweeps Buffalo
Monitor Staff Reports
EUSTACE–After a slow start, the Eustace Lady Bulldogs pulled away to complete a home-and-home sweep of the visiting Buffalo Lady Bison Tuesday night.
Now 28-7 on the season and 7-1 in District 14-2A volleyball play, the Lady Bulldogs were scheduled to visit nearby Malakoff Friday night.
Next Tuesday, Oct. 19, the Lady Bulldogs will host Blooming Grove in their final home match, before hitting the road to finish up the second round of district play at Teague Friday, Oct. 22, and at third-ranked Leon Tuesday, Oct. 26.
Already assured of a playoff berth, the Lady Bulldogs will be seeking revenge for their only district loss when they visit Leon in the regular-season finale. Outside of that match, Eustace has not dropped a game in loop play.
EHSvsBuffaloVB.jpg (505604 bytes)In front of a sparse crowd Tuesday, the Lady Bulldogs started slow, partly due to unforced errors and partly due to strong play by the Lady Bison, who were hanging close at 8-6.
From there, however, the Lady Bulldogs reeled off 11 straight points, eventually winning game one 25-9. Games two and three were marginally closer, but the Lady Bulldogs were not threatened, winning 25-16 and 25-14.

Youth-only hunting weekend set
Monitor Staff Reports
AUSTIN–Instead of sacking up sweets this Halloween, many young Texans will be bagging wild game during the special youth-only hunting weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 30-31.
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department established youth-only seasons to pass the hunting heritage on to the next generation of hunters, make lasting memories and to give kids the first shots.
Wildlife are flourishing, thanks to excellent habitat conditions throughout the state this year, and TPWD is urging sportsmen to take a kid outdoors.
TPWD has set aside Oct. 30-31 as special youth-only seasons for white-tailed deer and Rio Grande turkey. A youth-only late season is also available Jan. 3-16, 2011.
During the statewide special youth-only hunting weekend, licensed youth 16 years of age or younger will be allowed to harvest white-tailed deer and Rio Grande turkey.
The department has coordinated with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to offer a youth-only waterfowl season in the North and South Duck Zones Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 23-24, for licensed youth 15 years of age or younger.
A Special Youth Hunting License ($7) is required, and may be purchased wherever hunting licenses are sold, as well as online and by phone at 1-800-TX-LIC-4U for an additional convenience fee.
To make room for the new generation of Texas hunters, TPWD has made an extra effort to open as much public hunting land as possible to youth hunting on department-managed lands.
Youth who are hunting on TPWD lands must be accompanied by a supervising adult 18 years of age or older who possesses the required Annual Public Hunting permit, a valid hunting license and any required stamps and permits.
Youth hunts for either sex white-tailed deer are scheduled during the special weekend season on public hunting units, mostly in East Texas.
Youth waterfowl hunts are available on many public hunting units.
The Annual Public Hunting (APH) permit is a $48 permit, valid from Sept. 1 through Aug. 31 of the following year.
The APH permit allows an adult access to designated public hunting lands in the TPWD public hunting lands program.
With the APH permit, hunting is allowed for small game, turkey, white-tailed deer, exotics, predators, furbearers and fishing without having to pay daily permit fees and, in most instances, without having to be selected in a drawing.
General season bag limits for the county hunted apply during the youth-only weekend, but some additional restrictions may apply in certain areas, so be sure to check the 2010-11 Outdoor Annual of hunting and fishing regulations before heading afield.
