Coahoma head coach Mitzi Bell can remember how big the Forsan game was when she was in high school at Iraan. Forsan head coach Robert Hillger can remember close games decided by buzzer beaters between the two teams.
Both coaches know the Coahoma-Forsan game at 6 p.m. today in Forsan means something to the players, considering the close proximity between the two towns and the familiarity the players have with one another.
These two teams being the same district this year makes things even more exciting.

FORSAN â€” School officials here are pointing with pride to a state report that indicates the district is getting a bang for its educational bucks.
As part of the state-mandated Financial Allocation Study for Texas (FAST), Forsan Independent School District's expenditures were compared to those of similarly sized districts across the state, and FISD came out the the highest-rated district of the group.
COAHOMA â€” Enrollment at Coahoma public schools is pretty much where officials expected it to be â€” and that's good news.
Coahoma ISD trustees will hear the latest enrollment news for the district when they hold their monthly meeting at 7:30 p.m. tonight in the administration board room.
â€śThere's not a whole lot to this meeting,â€ť Superintendent Randy Brown said. â€śIt's probably the last board meeting of the year and it's a fairly light agenda.â€ť
