LONGVIEW -- Mount Vernon may have robbed itself of an opportunity to visit San Antonio later this week by defeating Elysian Fields, 83-63, Tuesday in the regional quarterfinal round of the Class 3A state playoffs at Spring Hill High School.
Believe it or not, there was some disappointment on head coach Joe Thomas' end that he and his squad might not get to see the Lady Tigers play their 3A state semifinal game Thursday at the Alamodome.

Two second-quarter touchdown runs by J.D. Spikes allowed the Eagles to come back from a 14-0 deficit established by the Yellowjackets through the first play of the second period.
