North Shore 42 – Spring 0

By Allan Jamail

Spring, TX. September 3, 2022 at Planet Ford Stadium the GPISD North Shore Mustangs pulled the teeth from the Spring Lions. The toothless Lions were kept scoreless by the Eastside Boys new defensive line. Mustangs 42 – Lions 0.

After losing their talented and experienced line who helped win the 2021 State Championship title Coach Jon Kay and his assistant coaches rebuilt their defensive line. So far with exceptions to their penalties this “D” line appears speedy and prepared to tangle.

Battleship Texas safely sails to Galveston drydock

TWO ICONS: Under tow, the iconic Battleship Texas passes under the iconic Harman Bridge on the way to a Galveston drydock for restoration work.

$35 million restoration will take over a year

HOUSTON (Aug. 31, 2022) – The Battleship Texas Foundation announced that the iconic Battleship Texas completed a milestone journey on Wednesday, August 31 from the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site to Galveston. The Battleship Texas, commissioned in 1914, is the only surviving dreadnought to have served in both World War I and World II.

The historic ship will now undergo an extensive, $35 million repair at Gulf Copper & Manufacturing Corporation’s shipyard to fix the hull. The Battleship Texas Foundation selected Gulf Copper’s shipyard in October 2021 as the repair location since they recently acquired a floating drydock that is capable of lifting the Battleship Texas out of the water. In addition, the location of the yard in Galveston significantly reduced the risks associated with towing the Battleship Texas due to sheltered waters and a short travel distance.
