Roos cap Heights tourney with win

Staff Report

The Weatherford varsity defeated San Angelo Central, 2-0, in its finish at the Arlington Heights baseball tournament over the weekend. The Roos completed the tourney with a 3-1-1 record.

Andy Rogers, making his first varsity start of the year on the mound, pitched six and a third innings of shutout ball before being spelled by Andy Swain, who finished out the game and picked up the save. 

The Roos, who entered the tourney undefeated, lost to Southlake Carroll, and at 18-1-1 on the season, were set to meet Arlington Martin in a district game on Tuesday.


Lady Roos do damage early in rout over Paschal

Staff Report

Ashley Erb’s leadoff double set the tone for the contest on Monday, as Weatherford softball continued its fast start in District 3-5A, improving to 4-0 with a 11-3 win over Paschal’s Lady Panthers. In the four district starts, the WHS girls have scored an average of 12.75 runs per contest, while holding the opposing offense to less than three run.

On Monday, the Lady Roos used 12 hits to bang out all of their runs in the first four innings, hinting at a shortened, run-rule end to the contest, but Paschal’s defense stiffened in the final three frames to prevent the premature ending.

Kelsey O’Brien took the circle to earn the win, striking out eight hitters in the game. Weatherford caps play for the week Wednesday, traveling to play at North Crowley in a district match at 6 p.m.


Reynolds’ bat paces Coyotes to Temple sweep

Staff Report

WC third baseman Trooper Reynolds turned in a five-RBI performance on Monday, as the Weatherford College baseball team swept Temple College in a home doubleheader, 8-7 and 11-6, at Roger Williams Ballpark.  The games were made up after being rained out on Saturday.

Reynolds, a Weatherford High School graduate, was 3-for-4 with a home run in game one and followed up going 2-for-2 in the second game.

There were five lead changes in the first game.  WC (13-9 overall, 2-2 in conference play) took the lead over Temple (10-6, 2-2) in the eighth inning after Cody Semler scored Walker Daily on an RBI single, and the Coyotes held on for the duration.
