Massive turnout

It seemed like every parent and student wanted to see the new Gatesville Elementary School during “Meet the Teacher” Sunday evening. Just maneuvering down the hallways to the classrooms was a chore. School started on schedule Monday for the elementary and all other local campuses.

She said ‘Yes!’

Evan Pardo, of Jonesboro, pictured on one knee, pulled off a surprise marriage proposal recently at the Gatesville Municipal Airport with help from his and his now-fiance Ashley Borth’s families. A corporate pilot who flies out of Chicago, Pardo picked up an airplane recently on the pretense of picking up a man in Hamilton for a business trip. He invited Borth, pictured far left, to ride along.

The Gatesville Hornets hosted the Gatesville Invitational volleyball tournament over the weekend, and the Black and Gold were able to reach the semifinals after going 3-0 in Thursday’s action. But Saturday did not go as well for Gatesville, as they lost to Killeen Ellison in a close match, 25-22, 25-21, in the semifi nals before falling in the third/fourth-place match to China Spring in another close contest, 25-22, 25-23.

The Gatesville Hornets had their final tune-up of the 2015 football season on Friday at Waco ISD Stadium, as they competed in a scrimmage against Waco High. Offensively, Gatesville was able to move the ball well, and the front seven of the defense showed once again that it just may be the strength of the football team.
