After beating the Killeen Kangroos during their regular season District game 50-9, the defending Texas State 4a Champion, Lake Travis Cavaliers, found themselves matched up against the Roos in the State Quarterfinal round at DKR Texas Memorial Stadium. The result was an even larger margin of victory this meeting 71-9 Lake Travis. Lake Travis moves on the the Semi-Final Round in Div I 4a play against the Friendswood Mustangs. All I and others have to say to Friendswood and any other challengers this year is ....."Here we come to get ya!!" GO CAVS!!

Veronica Niño, 45, is from Friendswood, Texas and is a mother of three children and an assistant principal. Niño, who uses a power wheelchair, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease) last year. "My passion is to give kids the knowledge they need to be successful," said Niño. "The biggest challenge with having ALS is the uncertainty." It is with great sadness that MDA learned that this devoted wife and mother of three lost her battle with ALS on October 3, 2012. For the Niños, and for all families who live with the hope that a cure will soon be found, MDA is leaving no stone unturned in our relentless efforts to eradicate ALS.
