Lady Roo Hoopsters Results
The Lady Roo Hoopsters opened up the season with their new style of play with a win over Keller Fossil Ridge, 47-39. The Lady Roos' press and half court scramble forced Fossil Ridge into 23 turnovers, and with the Lady Roos letting it fly from downtown this game, the defense is what eventually wore down the Panthers and held them to only 5 points in the final period.
McCenzie "dark helmet" Wells led the way with 13, followed by Hannah "the bun" Kness with 12. Lauren "Downtown" Pritt had 9, Kilie "Killer" Cummings 7, Abby "the ambush" Arwood 3, and Jaycee "the enforcer" Brannon added 3.
The Lady Roos headed to Paschal Thursday evening to take on Western Hills in round one of the Paschal Panther Invitational tournament at 6pm.
Lady Roos For Life! LRFL

Law Enforcement Visits the Fort Worth Animal Shelter
Law Enforcement Students Visit Fort Worth Animal Shelter for Day for Service
On 11/10/2019, Law Enforcement students spent the day at the Fort Worth Animal Shelter, where they not only learned about animal welfare, the laws that effect animals, but they heard and saw cases of animal neglect first hand. Students were given a presentation by Animal Control officers on the many services the shelter had to offer. They later pitched in and lent a helping hand in the many tasks of running a shelter. From folding blankets that keep the dogs & cats warm, to walking and feeding animals who may have never seen a friendly face before that day. Some students even watched sedated animals go through spay and neuters surgeries and learned the importance of overpopulation and how being a responsible pet owner actually saves pet lives.
There are over 600 dogs and cats housed at the Fort Worth Animal on any given day. They have a 90% live-release rate. That means that 90% of the homeless and unwanted pets that are rescued by FWAC, the caring staff are able to find homes or rescue groups willing to take them in. In September 2019, the shelter took in a total of 1152 dogs and 203 cats! That's 1,355 homeless animals that were taken in and given shelter and food. While we all may not be able to adopt a new pet, during this season of giving, please consider donating blankets, pet food, heating pads, heatable rice pads, cat toys, and other pet related items to your local animal shelter.
