HS Baseball/Softball: Rider Rolls into Meeting with Old High

The Rider Raiders wound up playing Tuesday night, after all.

After initially announcing that their game at Denton High would be postponed until Wednesday due to wet field conditions, the teams played anyway, and Rider took a 6-0 win.

Ben Smith and Blake Burrus combined on a three-hitter, striking out 16 Bronco batters between them.

The win improves Rider to 18-5 overall on the year, 5-0 in District 4-4A, and extends their winning streak to eleven straight games, going back to their district-opening win at Little Elm March 8th.

The Raiders will meet rival Wichita Falls High School Friday night at 7:30 PM at Hoskins Field.

The Coyotes' home game against Denton Ryan, scheduled for Tuesday, will be made up Wednesday night at 5 PM.

Rider/WFHS Softball Postponed

The rivalry meeting between Rider and Old High on the softball field was also postponed due to Tuesday's rain.

It will be made up Wednesday night at 5:30 PM at Sunrise Optimist Field 2.
