Spring Break baseball, softball results


Leading 10-3 by the end of three, Brock put together a 10-run barrage in the fourth, featuring a triple, two doubles and a pair of singles. Brock’s Seth Boleman led the Eagles with four RBIs and Hayden James had three hits, including a double.

Head coach Chad Massey used three pitchers, starting Slaten Gough and bringing Titus Gossett and Seth Boleman in for one inning each.

Brock followed up the win over Millsap with another district win on Wednesday, beating Alvord, 15-5. The Eagles are off until Tuesday, when they will host Paradise at 7 p.m.

Lady Roos improve to 3-1 district record

Weatherford varsity softball has bounced back with two routs after dropping a District 3-5A contest last week. The Paschal Lady Panthers were the latest victims, falling 12-0 to the hard-hitting Lady Roos.

Clean-up hitter Abbey Cowan led a trio of WHS batters with two RBIs, joining Kelso O’Brien, Taylor Pool and Landri Mays. One of Cowan’s two hits left the park.

In the circle, O’Brien handled complete-game duties in the run-rule shortened five-inning contest.

The WHS girls resume district play on Tuesday, traveling for a 7 p.m. game against Arlington Lamar.

Coyotes split double header with Grayson

Weatherford College third baseman Trooper Reynolds went 3-for-3 at the plate and scored twice in the first game of a NTJCAC contest against Grayson College on Wednesday at Williams Ballpark. The Coyotes had three multi-run innings as they topped GC, 10-6. WC’s Quinton Rohrbaugh led the Coyotes in run production, with three RBIs.

Tejay Antone got the win on the mound, with Scotland Church making a relief appearance for the final out to quash an attempted last-inning rally by the Vikings.

Grayson began its domination to take the second game in the opening inning, scoring a pair of runs en route to a 10-4 win. WC head coach Jeff Lightfoot trotted in four pitchers to try to stem the Grayson offense as the Vikes put up crooked numbers in four innings, helped along by three Coyote errors.

    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.
