COLLEGE

More than four million people have now viewed the video of an attack on a college baseball player from one of his opponents. Wednesday afternoon, during a double-header, the Weatherford College Coyotes were ahead in their first game against the North Central Texas College Lions. However, the tables turned in the 6th inning of their 7th-inning match-up when Lions batter Josh Phillips took the plate. Unfortunately, the baseball ended up past left-center field. Before the batter could finish rounding the bases, suddenly, you see Weatherford pitcher Owen Woodward leave the mound to launch an attack.

HIGH SCHOOL

The State Executive Committee of the University Interscholastic League met Monday to hand down decisions on the eligibility of student-athletes and determine rules violations. They denied a student-athlete from Trenton High School’s appeal for varsity eligibility, upholding the previous ruling of the district executive committee.

Cumberland Academy head boys’ basketball coach Robert Sampson had played a student-athlete four games despite being ruled ineligible. A 28-year coaching veteran, Sampson was issued a one-year suspension from coaching. The UIL also gave Sampson two years’ probation, a public reprimand, and additional training.

Mt Pleasant and Longview clinched a Class 5A softball playoff berth before Monday. The game between the two in Marshall was for District 15-5A seeding to determine their playoff paths. The now 14-8-1 Lady Lobos produced a seventh-inning walk-off hit in a thrilling 2-1 victory against Mt Pleasant. As a result, Mt Pleasant dropped its season record to 18-9 and will represent the district as its fourth playoff qualifier and face District 16-5A champ Huntsville in the opening round of the postseason. Longview clinched District 15-5A’s third playoff seed and will play rival and District 16-5A runner-up Lufkin in this week’s bi-district games.
