Over the weekend there was a lot of softball action in Holly as they Southern Plains 12U Tournament was in full swing. The season has been short and sweet for SP softball as the national Babe Ruth association they play in decided this year to move up the dates for the annual tournament trail that normally doesn’t start until mid-July. This year the state tournaments are slated for the weekend prior to the 4th of July.
Jaxon Crawford and Brad Johnson, both graduating seniors from Kit Carson, didn’t know if they were coming or going over the weekend as they hit the road on Saturday morning and traveled to the first-ever 6-Man All-State Football game hosted by Hugo School District, then traveled back home to attend the important retirement party for their long-time coach Jim Trahern on Saturday night, and then back on the road toward Denver on Sunday for the All-State Baseball games.
6-man all-state football game set to be played in Hugo on Saturday, June 3
Kick-off is set for 10:30 a.m.
For weeks now the question for the Eads Boys Track Team would be whether their potential to make some major noise in the state meet would come to fruition.
