COLLEGE STATION – History closed its book on the Malakoff Tigers’ 2011 season Friday night following a 24-7 area round playoff loss to the East Chambers Buccaneers.

The Tigers three-year run under Driskell is the school district’s best ever, topping the 24-5 record posted by the 1947-48-49 squad. Last season

The Trinity Valley Community College Crimson Players will present their production of “Duck Hunter Shoots Angel” Nov. 17-20. The comedy, written by Mitch Albom, is an uproarious story of two bumbling Alabama brothers who have never shot a duck, but think they shot an angel during a hunting trip. As they lament their fates in a murky swamp, they are chased by a cynical tabloid journalist and his reluctant photographer, who don’t believe any of it-until feathers, wings, and a tiara are discovered along the way. Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 17-19 and at 2:30 p.m. Nov. 20 at the TVCC Auditorium. Tickets are $5 for Students/TVCC Faculty and Staff/Seniors and $10 for the general public.
