New library completed at junior high

Anyone who had seen the old weight room at Gatesville Junior High was amazed to see the transformation that was made over the summer to convert it into a library. School officials, board members and others met in the library Monday for the monthly school board meeting.

New era begins for civic center

Since taking over the operation of the Gatesville Civic Center (formerly Coryell Activities Complex), city officials have tried to figure out how to attract more use of the facility. Renovations made it much more attractive, and now the city has someone responsible for marketing the center. Cheri Shepherd became the first director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau for the City of Gatesville.

Hornets sweep past Lady Cadets, 3-0

On Tuesday night, when GHS Band Night coincided with Junior High Night, the crowd was “unbelievable,” according to head volleyball coach Rickey Phillips, whose team swept the visiting Connally Lady Cadets, 3-0. “It’s a great setting for high school volleyball to walk into a gym like that and have very few empty seats,” Phillips observed.

JV, freshmen roll over Connally

Gatesville’s junior varsity volleyball team had another strong showing on Tuesday as they dominated Connally, winning 2-0. With scores of 25-10 and 25-9, the JV improved their record to 22-8 overall and 3-1 in district play.
