The Texhoma ISD school board met Wednesday evening to discuss school matters and approve the hiring of a new superintendent to step in the place of current superintendent Mike Jackson.
State rating reports for Texas were released recently. Jackson presented the reports with an explanation of each index to present board members. The reports represent data from state testing for the 2013-2014 school year.

TEXHOMA â€” Sarah Murphy drained a game-high 28 points to keep the Texhoma Lady Red Devils in the game on an otherwise poor shooting night for Texhoma as the Lady Red held off pesky Boise City 52-47 Friday night.
Murphy did most of her damage in the fourth quarter as Texhoma (1-0) relinquished a 26-22 halftime lead and trailed 35-34 entering the fourth.
Texhoma led by as much as six late in the second, but went cold in the third quarter, and Boise Cityâ€™s Addison Munsch and Destiny Spell hit some key shots to pull the Lady Wildcats (0-1) into the lead at 3:44 of the third.
TEXHOMA â€” Dylan Koehn and Mychael Johnson each scored 19 points and Moises Garay 10 to lead the Texhoma Red Devils to a 60-43 win over Boise City, Friday night.
The win was solid despite both teams one week removed from first-round football playoff losses.
It took Boise City a bit longer to get on track.
â€śWe had a great start, great start in the first half,â€ť Texhoma head coach Greg Higgins said. â€śBoise Cityâ€™s a great team. Theyâ€™re a good offensive team, they play good defense, they mix up their defenses and traps. Theyâ€™re a good team.â€ť
TYRONE â€” The Tyrone Bobcats opened the 2014-2015 campaign in mid-season form, easily handling a young and inexperienced Hardesty squad, 79-12 on Thursday night.
â€śYou could just tell they were an inexperienced team,â€ť Tyrone coach Clay Witt said of the Bison. â€śWe were jumping inside the lanes early, but then we tried to back off, tried to work on some other things.
â€śItâ€™s early in the season for both teams, we want to help them, theyâ€™re our neighbors, help them get better and theyâ€™re helping us get better.â€ť
TYRONE â€” Tyrone High School freshman Paige Brown was as cool as the other side of the pillow, Thursday night. Brown calmly sank two free throws with one second left in the season-opener against Hardesty to ice her teamâ€™s 43-41 win.
Hardesty (0-1) led throughout the middle two quarters after Tyrone (1-0) took a 9-6 lead after the first eight minutes of the season.
