CHICKASHA – Starting the season 6-2, the Drover softball team — composed exclusively of returning players — is off to a strong start, said first year head coach Jadyn Smith-Wallis.

“They know exactly what each other is going to do. There are no surprises. I think that is going to be a huge factor for us this year,” she said. “I feel like the girls are really competing and working as a unit. We are fired up, definitely fired up for the season.”

With no newcomers, the team is on the smaller side. But that doesn’t deter Smith-Wallis’ enthusiasm about the squad.

The world-famous Texas Boys Choir performs in Chickasha beginning at 7:30 p.m. on March 1 in Te Ata Memorial Auditorium. The choir will visit Lincoln Elemetary for a free performance earlier in the day.

In a world of manufactured pop idols and half-hit wonders, who bothers to learn how to sing anymore?

Just south of the Red River, the Texas Boys Choir maintains a time-honored tradition of training boys in the art of choral singing through adulthood. The result is what composer Igor Stravinsky referred to as “the best boys choir in the world.”

The Texas Boys Choir is scheduled to perform beginning at 7:30 p.m. on March 1 in Te Ata Memorial Auditorium as part of the Davis Waldorf Performing Arts Series.
