Prep softball ends regular season, baseball making last impressions


A two-out walk and Raider error gave Aledo two runners in the bottom of the frame, but a ground out ended the Bearcats’ designs on last-inning heroics.

Aledo travels to Granbury on Tuesday and is back home on Friday for Senior Night, taking on Fort Worth’s Trimble Tech. Both matches are set for 7 p.m. starts.


Ladycats go 14-0 with Heights win

Aledo’s varsity girls completed their run of the District 7-4A table with a 15-0 win over Arlington Heights.

The four-inning affair produced another no-hit outing for Aledo’s Lauren Craine, who fanned nine Lady Jackets hitters and ceded a lone walk.

The Ladycats’ big inning came in the second, making up for the lost time of a scoreless first by putting up 10 runs. 

The Aledo offense produced six double and two triples, with Chickie Cook going 2-for-3, scoring two runs and recording four RBIs.

Aledo added four runs in the third frame and the lone run in the fourth ended the contest.

The Ladycats enter postseason as the top seed, facing the fourth seed from District 8-4A at a site and time to be announced.


Brock’s 8-run fourth gets everyone out of the rain

The Eagles drainable turf came in handy on Thursday, as Brock hosted Boyd in a District 9-2A match. The recurring drizzle was not as much as a nuisance to the Yellowjackets as the Brock hitters, who banged out 11 hits en route to a 14-1 rout.

After warming up with four first-inning runs and tacking on another two in the third, the Eagles batted around in the fourth while drumming up eight round trips in the frame.

Seven of the 10 Brock players who got an at bat hit safely in the game, with four multi-hit batters. 

Colby Fowler did the most damage, hitting a home run and ending the day with five RBIs. Titus Gosset recorded a double and had two RBIs.
