The Dickinson Lady Gators were behind six runs through four innings, but refused to give in, fighting all the way back for a 12-9 victory over the Clear Creek Wildcats in Wednesday night’s District 24-6A playoff seeding tiebreaker at Clear Springs High School.
The Wildcats survived for a 7-6 win in a back-and-forth contest that ended on an out at home plate and saw a Falcons two-run home run negated on a substitution miscue.
The Tors finished with a 28-8 overall record in 1971, and they remain one of only two Ball High baseball teams to get to within one game of a state tournament appearance.
Hot hitting and a stalwart pitching performance from Edwin Lue delivered an 8-1 win for the Dickinson Gators at Clear Brook on Monday night.
For the Clear Springs head football coaching job, we should look beyond career records because the key to further success there appears to lie in the intangibles. Time will tell if new hire Anthony Renfro possesses the right intangibles, but I certainly like his enthusiasm and energy.
With four District 24-6A championships and one runner-up finish in the past five seasons, the bar has already been set pretty high for Clear Springs football, but newly hired head coach Anthony Renfro says he aims to raise the standard even further.
