After surviving Hurricane Ike, High Island (Texas) baseball is finally returning to the field. But it's far from returning to normal, writes Jeff Miller.
It's rare for a nine-loss team to be considered among the serious contenders to reach Texas' Class 5A state boys' basketball semifinals in Austin. But this hasn't been the typical season for the Hurricanes of Hightower High in Missouri City.
The Hightower Hurricanes (13-0) will try to cap their perfect season with a victory over the Allen Eagles (14-1) on Saturday night in the Division I championship game at Reliant Stadium in Houston.
