LHS Baseball - Spring Break
The JV Red team played 4 District games over Spring Break going 2-2. The team was swept by Highland Park, and then bounced back to beat Royse City in 2 games.
The JV Black continued their good play, finishing 2nd in the Denton JV Tournament, and then splitting with Highland Park last week.
The Varsity Baseball team has opened District play with a 1-1 Record. The team was beat pretty soundly at Highland Park on Tuesday but then bounced back with a very big win over Highland Park on Friday night. The final score was 3-2. Jacob Terwilliger threw an outstanding game, and the team pulled out a win in the 8th inning on a Sac Bunt 2 base error committed by Highland Park. Matt Almy laid the bunt down, and the HP 3rd baseman tried to make a play at 3rd, and threw the ball down the left field line, resulting in two Leopards scoring for the win.
The Varsity continues district play this week vs. West Mesquite on Tuesday at Home at 7:30, and at West Mesquite Friday at 4:00.
