Roos drop District 3-5A  decision to Paschal

Staff Report

Weatherford High School's early lead was erased by the Paschal Panthers Tuesday afternoon, as the Kangaroos squared off against the district co-leaders at Raymond E. Curtis Field, losing the District 3-5A contest, 8-2. After giving up two runs to the Roos in the bottom of the opening frame, Paschal hurler Tyler Nurdin stiffened to pitch shut-out ball the rest of the way. 

Spurred by home runs from Gavin Smithart and Kirby Campbell, Paschal put together two 3-run innings in the fourth and seventh. The WHS boys, falling to a 3-4 district mark, return to action on Saturday, in a non-district match at Granbury. Looking for a critical win to pull themselves back into playoff contention, the Roos next district game is Tuesday, as they travel to Abilene for a 7:30 p.m. start.


Weatherford girls lose to Martin in non-district tune-up  

Staff Report

Wedging a game between important district matches, the Lady Roos lost a contest  against Arlington Martin Tuesday, 8-6. In a game featuring big innings, the WHS girls surged ahead in the second frame, scoring four runs against the Martin starter Carouthers. The Lady Warriors' big inning came in the bottom of the third, running a half dozen across the plate. The Lady Roos answered with two in the next frame, but failed to close the gap.

Weatherford gets back to district business Friday, traveling to play Abilene's Lady Eagles. The Lady Roos are in a virtual dead heat with Richland, and look to keep abreast in the standings. The game at Abilene is set for a 4 p.m. first pitch.

  • 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.
