Coyote baseball splits with Cisco Saturday, crucial series remains

Staff Report 

After taking three out of four from Cisco College last week, the Weatherford College baseball team heads into a critical final series against McLennan, with a Region V Tournament berth on the line.

WC (29-22 overall, 14-14 in conference play) is tied with McLennan for the fourth and final playoff spot out of the North Texas Junior College Athletic Conference. If the Coyotes can get three wins in their last four games, they will ensure themselves a berth in the Region V Tournament in Lubbock next month.

In game one of Saturday’s doubleheader at Roger Williams Ballpark, WC jumped all over Cisco in a 10-0 win. Andrew Hendel pitched a shutout, striking out four and giving up five hits in six innings. Colton Turner racked up three RBIs on four hits. WC did most of its damage in a three-run second inning and a four-run sixth.

  • 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.
