GC Baseball/Softball Roundup: Tigers take down Lindale

No. 7 Kerens baseball falls to Martin’s Mill

Corsicana — After a rough lost to Nacogdoches last Friday night, the Tiger softball team took on Lindale Tuesday and left East Texas with a 6-3 win.

The Tigers started off the game with a single by Katy Polk, and Sidney Kirk scored her on a shot to left field. Kirk reached third on an error by the left fielder. Raylee Smithart reached base and scored Kirk from an error by the third baseman to make it 2-0.

Lindale matched the Tigers two runs off three Tigers errors in the first.

The Tigers opened the third with four singles and two walks to take a 5-2 lead. Lindale scored a run in the bottom of the fourth after a leadoff double.

Maddie Andrews led off the fifth with a single, and scored on a single from Carly Cates.

Kirk got the win on the mound and had four strikeouts.

The Tigers, now 19-13, and 6-3 in District 16-4A, host Whitehouse on Friday night for their final district game.

Mildred 15, Rice 0 (5): The Mildred Lady Eagles continued their undefeated run through District 23-2A with a victory over Rice Lady Bulldogs. Olivia Farmer led the Eagles at the plate with a 3 for 3 performance with a double and an RBI. Callie Bland was 2 for 4 with a triple and two RBIs and freshman Abbie Burnham was 2 for 3 with an RBI and scored three runs.

Joanna Tapley pitched five scoreless innings, striking out 10 while giving up only one hit.

Hanna Owens singled in the first inning for Rice in the loss.

Mildred concludes district play on Friday when the Lady Eagles host Blooming Grove.

Frost 15, Avalon 0 (5): The Lady Bears made quick work of Avalon, scoring in every inning and winning impressively on the road. Jae Moore did not allow a hit, and struck out 12.

Hillaree Schwartz went 3 for 3 with three RBIs, and Kadee Bowling added three hits – including a triple – and scored three times. Jasmyn Steels was 2 for 3 with three runs.

The Lady Bears (10-3, 8-3 in 14-1A) led 8-0 after six-run second.

Martin’s Mill 3, Kerens 2: Seventh-ranked Kerens saw its unblemished streak in district play snapped Tuesday. Martins Mill’s Austin Gogans limited the Bobcats to two hits. Kerens left-hander Brett Anderson suffered his first loss of the year.

After falling behind 1-0 in the first, the Bobcats (14-3, 11-1 in District 19-1A) plated a run in the fourth to tie. After Martin’s Mills made it 2-1 in the sixth, Kerens bounced back to tie again.

The Bobcats could not find the equalizer, however, after Martin’s Mill took a 3-2 lead in the top of the seventh.

Dylan Woods and DJ Kamp had the only hits for Kerens.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan; Remembering House and a better era

    The Cowboys started training camp the same week that Robert Newhouse died.
    In a way, that’s very unfortunate for Jerry. Thinking back to the “Human Bowling Ball” and the teams of that era might lead to the inevitable comparisons to today’s product on the field.

  • weights.jpg GC Football: Blooming Grove's Williams expects to win

    His father was a head coach for years at Pecos High and his brother-in-law is the head football coach at DeSoto, but Lawrence Williams Jr., a man who loves coaching football, never had any ideas about being the head man.
    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''

    Kaylana Dickson got the name Bebop on her way to winning a national title in gymnastics this summer, and boy did it catch fire.
    Kaylana, a Corsicana native, picked up fans from all over the country and many bought Bebop T-shirts to help pay her expenses to Spokane, Wa., where she won the 8-and-under title in the double-mini trampoline event and finished third in floor exercise.
    More than 100 of her friends, family members and fans showed up at the Corsicana YMCA on Saturday to celebrate the national title and be on hand for a drawing for an autographed New Orleans Saints football jersey from David Hawthorne, a star defensive lineman for the Saints and Kaylana's uncle

    Call it the rarest of rares, at least as far as all-state teams go. Brett Anderson of Kerens shows up on the Texas Sports Writers Association/Collin Street Bakery all-state team not one, not two, not three, but four times. Dawson's Lane Dotson was a second-team outfielder, and the Bulldogs' Trent Underwood made the third-team as a pitcher, and also garnered an honorable mention nod at first base. Kerens outfielder Brent Warren was also an honorable mention pick.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan: All-star games and all-star shame

    If there is anything more useless than a political promise, it’s an all-star game. I don’t care what sport at what level. Any all-star game is simply an exhibition, a reward for being among the best (maybe). Any one of them is about as relevant as the IRS’s “dog ate my homework” excuse for losing emails.
