MW Rams Baseball 19, WF Hirschi Huskies 3
The Rams closed out their season with an exciting win over the Wichita Falls Huskies at Pratt Field Tuesday night. The young Rams team struggled this season, but made some great strides and had some exciting moments for fans to watch. Tuesday night was one of those exciting moments. They came alive early scoring 8 runs in the 2nd inning with RBI’s from seniors Cameron Michaels and Cambren Morrison, Junior Tyson Reeves, and Sophomores Blake Blue and Mason Facteau. Each of those heavy hitters tallied multiple hits for the game, as well as pitcher Isaiah Santibanez. Santibanez started the game and pitched 2 innings allowing 2 hits, 2 runs, 5 strikeouts and 0 walks.
Following him was Ryan Bell who also pitched 2 innings only allowing 1 hit and 1 run, and had 6 strikouts. And to close the game, one of the Rams 4 seniors, Cameron Michaels, who earlier in the school year signed to play college ball at Redlands College in OK, stepped up to the mound. He finished with 0 hits, 0 runs and 1 strikeout against 4 batters.
The 4 Rams seniors were honored by teammates, coaches, fans and family before the game in a ceremony. The 4 seniors are Charles Carter, Cameron Michaels, Cambren Morrison, and Luke Bullock. Carter and Michaels will be continuing their athletic careers at the next level. As mentioned before Michaels is headed to Oklahoma to play baseball at Redlands College, and Carter is off to Bethany College to play football.
MW Lady Rams 1, Burkburnett Bulldogs 12
The MW Lady Rams ended their season a week earlier than the Rams in a tough loss to Burkburnett. Just like the Rams, the Lady Rams came in to this season with a young team, only 1 senior. That does not mean there is a lack of talent, this Lady Rams team is going to shape up to be a contender in the coming seasons as the youngsters get some experience.
Lone senior Zaniya Pruitt, who was honored before the game, and surprised with a grocery cart of gifts from teammates after the game, pitched 6 innings in the Lady Rams loss, allowing 12 runs on 12 hits and walking 0 batters. She will be missed by her teammates and coaches upon graduation.
Sophomore Abby Tincher scored the single run for the Lady Rams, Freshman River Pugh recording the RBI. Tincher and Pugh led the Lady Rams in hits
