SULPHUR BOUND

At the beginning of the year, reaching the state tournament in Sulphur was a dream for a young Calvin softball team. But after winning the District Championship (Undefeated) and rolling to a 17-4 regular season record and fighting their way through the playoff round, this group of “never-say-die” girls is headed to the state tournament in Sulphur. Merely getting there is no longer the goal.

WSHS Baseball Team 32a District Champions 2018

The WSHS boy’s baseball team brought home the district championship this past week, taking 2 out of 3 wins against their rival, many tigers who were sitting in the #3 spot in the state rankings. In the first matchup this past Tuesday playing at home, Winnfield, ranked #7 in the state, defeated many in a thrilling victory 2-0. It was a great pitching duel with both pitchers from Winnfield and many only allowing 3 hits a piece, but Winnfield made their hits count getting the base runners across home plate lifting the Winnfield tigers for that first needed victory in the 3 game series and upsetting many. The boys then traveled to many on Thursday to finish the series and play a double header. The stands were filled with tiger fans from many and Winnfield knowing one of the tiger teams was going to walk away with the championship. It was a beautiful day for baseball with sunny skies and a little crisp feeling in the air.
