Southern Plains 10U Baseball goes 1-2 at State Tournament

It’s been a few weeks since area baseball all-stars ended.  The Southern Plains 10U team was the last man standing in this area as they traveled to play in their state tournament in Yuma, Colorado on July 7-10.  Baseball is not like the softball tournaments where pool play is the first order of business and teams can end up playing 4-8 games during a tournament.  The baseball tournaments are structured in a true double-elimination tournament from the very start.  The 10U group, coached by Sean Lening (Eads) and Lonnie Spady (Eads) went 1-2 in the state tournament.

Slide Continues for Eads Ballers

     It was another tough game for the struggling Eads boys’ basketball team as they continue to slide in the regular season schedule.  They would lose a slow game, 72-31, to the #3 ranked Wiley Panthers in Wiley on Thursday night.  With the loss, first year Coach Russell Parker will need to try to regroup the team as they quickly head toward post-season play.  This week doesn’t get any easier for the Eagles who have been playing without two starters, including the Eagles’ leading scorer in Caden Parker, as they travel to Kit Carson on Friday night to take on their rivals up the road, the #5 (11-3) Wildcats.  And the hits just keep coming as Saturday night they will walk into the Plainview High School gym to face off with the defending state champions the #2 Holly Wildcats (12-3).  Eads is now 6-7 overall.
