Local contenders abound in seasons’ second half



With just a brief glance, one can surmise that baseball and softball district seasons will not spell the end of competition for many of the Parker County prep teams. At mid-point (or just past, in some cases) of respective district slates, six area teams find themselves in at least the top two positions in the league standings, with two all alone at the top.

The timing of the rain and thunderstorms were relatively accommodating through the week, with the schedule generally unaffected, with just a few exceptions. Area Class 2A teams got there games in on Monday before the deluge, and the Friday and Saturday dates should be dry enough to continue play.

Friday offers an important test for Weatherford baseball, who will get another shot at the Arlington Martin Warriors, the only District 3-5A squad to blemish the Roos district record. Martin was also the bump in the road for the Lady Roos, as the two teams are in a dead heat for the district championship with five games to play.

Brock baseball and Aledo softball both enjoy 2-game leads in their respective district standings, looking unbeatable through the balance of the schedule, though Ponder did give the Eagles a scare on Monday, extending Brock to extra innings.

Both Springtown teams are still in the mix, with the baseball Porcupines in a crowded second-place slot, but just a game behind first-place Kennedale.

The top four finishers go to the playoffs in Classes 4A and 5A, with the top three in each district advancing to postseason in Class 3A and below.

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
