  • Playoff roundup: Lady Devils still alive

    The Chester baseball team had its season ended after back-to-back district playoff losses, but the team also served notice that better things are coming.

    The Cyclones were a number four seed in the AAA playoffs, which meant opening the postseason at one seed Crescent last Tuesday. Chester got home runs from Jordan Price (a three-run shot in the first) and Jarod Dixon (in the top of the seventh) to tie the game at 4-4. Unfortunately, Crescent was able to put one on the board in the home half of the final frame to win 5-4 in walk off fashion.

  • Season ends for Lewisville baseball team

    Landrum coach Daniel Little says that his team’s objective in each game is to extend every inning as long as they can. Now the Cardinals are working on extending their season as long as they can.

  • Lady Cycs bow out with loss to Chapman

    The 2019 season ended for the Chester Cyclones softball team on Monday night, but the 2020 season started.

    Chester bowed out of the playoffs after losing 7-0 to Chapman High. The Lady Panthers struck for single runs in the second and third and the game stayed at 2-0 until the sixth. Chester had ample opportunities to score but could never get the big hit needed to get the offense going.

  • Lewisville steals one

    The Lewisville Lady Lions stole one against North Central last week.

  • Devils lose a close one to Whitmire

    Coach Josh Heffner said early this season that with an inexperienced roster, he expected some early bumps in the road, but expected his team to be playing their best ball of the year by the end of the season. He appears to have been on the money.

    Great Falls did not win its final game before going on spring break, falling to a good Whitmire team 4-1, but the Devils kept it close and had a shot to win at the end.

  • Lady Cycs win one, lose one
