It’s one game, with the winner moving on to the regional finals and the loser going home to check in the gear.
GEORGETOWN — West’s Horn — that’s left-hander Bailey Horn to be exact — produced some sweet notes Wednesday night as he pitched the Trojans to a 3-0 victory over Academy in a Class 3A Region III quarterfinal battle at East View’s Patriots Park.
Horn allowed just three singles, struck out 14 and walked one. After yielding singles to Chase Boatler and Reagan Pitts in the first inning, he completely shackled the Bumblebees’ attack. Horn retired 19 of the final 21 batters he faced. Boatler singled again with two outs in the third, and Alex McCollough walked with two outs in the seventh.
LITTLE RIVER-ACADEMY — Second is a key word when discussing Academy senior Chase Boatler. He hits second in the lineup, plays second base and always places his individual efforts second to team accomplishments when discussing the Bumblebees.
Most importantly, he plans to do everything he can to keep Academy from finishing second to West in a Class 3A Region III quarterfinal playoff game between district titlists at 7:30 p.m. today at Georgetown East View.
Boatler was a key figure in Academy’s sweep of Jefferson in the area round last week, with two doubles in the series-clinching 3-1 victory.
Now that the transition into 11-man football has been well-established, Central Texas Christian believes it has the man who can propel the Lions to a new level of success.
Jeremy Calahan, a former Rice and St. Louis Rams player, will take over as the new athletic director and head football coach at CTCS, becoming the fourth head coach in the school’s history.
Bruceville-Eddy's Kyle Doty rallied from fifth place and made a mad dash toward Whitesboro's Jeffery Butts in the homestretch, churning through the final 30 meters and inching in front on his final step after the Whitesboro runner celebrated prematurely in the Class 3A boys 1,600-meter run Saturday at Mike A. Myers Stadium on the final day of the UIL Track and Field State Championships.
They were two medals of different colors but equally symbolic: a gold for Bartlett senior Moises Montanez to make up for two years of disappointments, and a bronze for Holland freshman Zoe Spinn as a precursor of things to come.
Montanez won the Class 2A boys 3,200-meter run Friday to finally secure a prize in his fifth career race at the state meet, and Spinn followed about two hours later with a third-place finish in the 2A girls high jump on a dark, rainy morning at the UIL Track and Field State Championships.
Rosebud-Lott’s athletic history is filled with tales of success. The only thing missing was a girls state championship.
That’s not the case anymore.
The talents of five athletes carried Rosebud-Lott from Travis to the pinnacle of track and field success and the Class 2A team title at the UIL Track and Field Championships on a warm, breezy Saturday afternoon at Mike A. Myers Stadium.
AUSTIN – Bekah Alcozer came to the UIL Track and Field State Championships confident that she would garner a medal. Belton schoolmate Will Watson had no idea what he was in store for.
Bruceville-Eddy couldn’t have had much better of a day at the UIL Track and Field State Championships on Friday, when Rockdale’s Dustin Strelsky also made a pretty good haul and Granger’s Garrett Drake left Mike A. Myers Stadium realistically pleased.
Christopher Charleston and Kyle Doty captured gold medals, and Bruceville-Eddy teammate Darin Allen earned a bronze as the area’s contingent racked up 10 medals in its 17 events on the first day of the state meet.
MUMFORD — Just as it seems they’ve done all of the other times before, the Belton Lady Tigers could only walk away from the Cotton Palace in Mumford and reflect on how close they came to beating traditional softball powerhouse The Woodlands.Once again it was another one-run loss with a variety of opportunities that proved to be just beyond their grasp.And once again the reigning state runner-up Highlanders found a way to beat the Lady Tigers 2-1 Saturday in a Class 6A Region II semifinal, completing a series sweep — just as they did four years ago in the same round of the playoffs.
