WFHS Stays Alive in Playoff Race

The Wichita Falls High School Coyotes had already driven down to Little Elm, so even with the high winds, they decided to play on.

It was a good idea, as Griffin Russell struck out 14 Lobos in a complete-game 1-hit shutout and the Coyotes took a 3-0 win.

Brandon Brown was 2/3 at the plate with a run batted in to lead the Coyote offense.

With the win, Old High improves to 4-5 in District 4-4A play, putting them a half-game behind Lake Dallas for the final playoff spot, and a game and a half behind Denton Ryan for third.

Lake Dallas defeated last-place Denton to move to 5-5, while Ryan upset The Colony 6-5 to improve to 6-4 in district.

The Coyotes (16-12, 4-5) will step out of district play on Saturday to host Bridgeport at 1 PM before starting on the 4-4A home stretch.

They will host the team they're chasing, Lake Dallas, Tuesday night at 5 PM at Hoskins Field with a shot to move into the final playoff spot.

Then they'll have to finish strong against the two Raiders of the district, as they visit Denton Ryan Friday, April 22 before finishing up the following Friday against rival Rider. WFHS will be the home team for that game.

Knights Move Over .500 in District

The Notre Dame Knights beat Arlington Fellowship 22-11 on a windy Friday night in Arlington.

C.J. Macha struck out 11 to pick up the win.

The Knights (8-8-1, 5-4-1 in TAPPS 1-1A/2A) will stay in the Metroplex to play a double-header Saturday at Watauga Harvest Christian, starting at 11 AM.
