“I’m very proud of these kids. They made some great plays during all of the games. Our pitchers did an excellent job for us,” said Coach Kirk Jones.
Last Thursday Lamesa beat Olton, 5-3, with Sterling Wilke on the mound.
Gilbert Valdez was the starting pitcher for the Seminole game on Friday. Despite a valiant effort, Lamesa came up short, 23-10, in that game.
A win against Sudan on Saturday put the Lamesa team back in the running for a play-off berth. Roger Martin was the winning pitcher with a score of 15-8.
