Ben Moseley - Stratford
DID HE ONE-HAND CATCH THAT 😳 ... Holy Cow!! @benrmoseley what a catch! @KPRC2RandyMc@HTownHSS@MaxPreps#txhsfbpic.twitter.com/lyoxvGV0NI— vypehouston (@vypehouston) October 18, 2020
In a 34-32 victory over Cypress Ridge over the weekend, Ben Moseley had a big game. Moseley finished with 135 yards and a touchdown in five catches. One of those catches was SportsCenter-worthy. Moseley got turned around and then made a one-handed catch for a 30-yard completion. On top of making a one-handed catch Moseley dragged both of his feet to make sure it was a catch. That is not an easy catch to make. He made a Division I, NFL-level grab.

Let’s go Tigers! #AllmeansAll#TigerProudpic.twitter.com/htEGfMgbFe— Spring Woods High (@SpringWoodsHigh) October 16, 2020
Spring Woods through the first four games of the year is 2-2. Not a bad start for the Tigers. A key player for the Tigers thus far has been junior Anthony Rodriguez. He has been key in the kick return game and defensively. Let's start on the defense. Rodriguez actually leads District 17-6A in interceptions with three through the first four games. He also leads the district in punt return yards with 67, averaging 22.3 yards per return. Rodriguez also has eight kickoff returns, averaging 14.5 yards per return.
Lady Mustangs win! A five set thriller over a scrappy @CCHSCougarVB team. pic.twitter.com/eb8nPumTAl— MHSVolleyball (@MustangVBall) October 17, 2020
The Memorial Mustangs are currently the queens of District 17-6A, posting an 11-4 overall mark and so far going 7-0 in district contests. Memorial is coming off a 3-1 victory over Cy Ridge on Tuesday, which kept them undefeated in district play. Lyla Traylor (140 kills) and Kingsley Wallace (132 kills) have been key pieces to the offensive unit as Logan Leroux (260 assists) and Caroline Howell (165 assists) have been mainly setting them up. Defensively, Lauren Elie leads the team in digs with 222, followed by Traylor's 183 and Megan Xie's 166. This team is loaded. This is a big weekend coming up for Memorial as they will host a dual-match with Ridge Point and Pearland Dawson at the Don Coleman Coliseum.
Stratford Cross Country
Fantastic day for Spartan XC. The varsity boys finished 🥇, and the varsity girls 🥈 at the CFISD XC Invitational.— Stratford XC & Track (@Stratford_XC_TF) October 16, 2020

In Division I, the Stratford boys took first place. Maddox Durnell took sixth overall with a time of 16:40.70 and just two seconds behind him was teammate Jackson Potter. They are both sophomores. Finishing ninth overall was junior Zach Tobin (16:44.70) and in 10th was sophomore Jacob Waltz (16:44.70). Sophomore William Wylie took 12th with a time of 16:48.40. A great sign for Stratford that four of their five Top 15 finishers this past weekend are just sophomores. Another big nod here is the team Stratford beat out for the title was powerhouse The Woodlands.
On the girls' side, Stratford took second overall as a team. The group was led by freshman Niamh Collins, who posted a time of 19:27.20. Sophomore Maggie Pearce took sixth with a time of 19:31.20 and freshman Allie Weinhardt finished eighth overall with a time of 19:37.70. Two freshmen finishing in the Top 10 is impressive.
