General policy needed to discourage ‘sexting’ at work

You graduate from TCU and get a job. Your employer gives you a company cell phone, which you then use for personal business like making plans to meet a friend for drinks after work. No big deal, right?


Jeff Quon, a SWAT sergeant in Ontario, Calif., is facing charges from his employer after sexting on his company-paid cell phone. Now, a Supreme Court ruling could block personal use of employer-issued phones altogether, which seems to be an extreme consequence for a pretty minor offense.

Freshman makes impact on women’s basketball team

The final rounds of the 2009 Texas high school girls' basketball state tournament were played in Austin where Starr Crawford led Mansfield Summit to the state title.

Now Crawford is on another team that hopes to finish its season a few hours south of Fort Worth.

The 2010 NCAA Women's Final Four will be played at the Alamodome in San Antonio during Easter weekend, and the No. 23 Horned Frogs women's basketball team is in line to make its ninth tournament appearance in ten years.

Frog men’s basketball sets off against Utah Utes

The struggling Horned Frog basketball team will welcome another squad that has fallen on tough times, the Utah Utes, to Daniel-Meyer Coliseum tonight. Both teams have lost four of their past five games with a win over Air Force, the common denominator for both.

TCU (11-13, 3-6) topped the Falcons 65-51 Saturday in Colorado Springs behind junior guard Greg Hill's career-high 23 points. Prior to the victory, the Frogs had not won a game since they beat UT Pan-American on Jan. 20.

Baseball team ready for another season

The Horned Frog baseball team accomplished some important firsts last season: hosting an NCAA regional, advancing to the first Super Regional in program history and falling just one game short of reaching the College World Series.

Redshirt junior pitcher Steven Maxwell said the team will have its sights on taking one more step this season.

"We completely expect to be in Omaha playing for the national championship at the end of the season," Maxwell said.

Team additions: soccer and volleyball


Two players were added this week to the Horned Frog soccer team that will compete in what head coach Dan Abdalla called, "the year we've been building for."

Kim Castleberry will transfer into the program from Texas A&M, where she played in 25 games, scoring two goals and one assist for the Aggies during her freshman season in 2009. Top Drawer Soccer named her the number one recruit in the nation coming out of Prosper High School in 2009 and Abdalla said she will immediately become the fastest player on the team.
