It just wouldn’t be a Weatherford Kangaroos baseball season without an exciting finish to the season. With one week left in the regular season, the Kangaroos are in the playoffs, but don’t know if they will finish third or fourth in District 3-6A.
Despite a sterling pitching performance by Mason Hilton, the Weatherford Kangaroos will have to wait until at least Friday to clinch a playoff berth. Meanwhile, the Brock Eagles rallied late for another comeback victory against upset-minded Breckenridge and the Aledo Bearcats fell at home to Northwest in a key district contest.
Brock led all qualifiers from the District 7-3A Tennis Tournament on their own courts recently, advancing 13 players to the Region I Tournament. The Eagles and Lady Eagles won first place in all five events, along with a runner-up finish in three events.
