Gause junior high track athletes did well at the district track meet held March 28 in Somerville. The seventh grade girls finished second overall, while the eighth grade girls were the third place team. The seventh grade boys were third and the eighth grade boys sixth. We as a community can be proud of these youth. They all gave it their best. Gause youth who attend Milano High School and participate in FFA that showed animals in the Milam County Junior Livestock Show recently were Raighley Shaw who showed turkeys, Alton Bryant showed a goat and lamb, David Jentsch showed steer and lamb and John Jentsch placed fourth with his lamb and sold his third place steer.

Gause 4-H Club members participating in the livestock show included Connelly Cooper, Cameron Cooper, Kendall Lee and Jaxon Hayles who showed rabbits, Avery Wadlington showed turkey, Cameron Cooper also showed a lamb and goat, Hayden Rasco had a third place lamb and an intermediate showmanship award, Gracie Rasco showed a goat, Garrett Reed had the grand champion lamb and Kendall Sheppard showed the reserve champion American breeding show heifer. Congratulations to all these youth.
