Broncos revel in perfect season

By Sandy Anderberg

The Bronco baseball team has finished their regular season schedule and they did it perfectly at 19-0 overall and 12-0 in district play.

The Broncos did end with one tie on the season, but claimed another District Championship. They ended regular season play with a big win over Wellington at 13-1 last Tuesday.

Kade Hunsaker, who went three out of four from the plate, got things going in the early for the Broncos on a single and a triple in the first and second innings. Offensively, the Broncos were on their game as they took advantage of a momentum control as the game went on. A huge seventh inning put four more runs on the board for the Broncos when Josh Cobb had a big hit and Andy Davis and Clay Koetting slammed singles. Numerous Broncos had several hits in the game to help the Broncos to the win. Hunsaker, Chance Lockhart, Preston Elam, and Clay Koetting were solid from the plate and Koetting racked up four stolen bases.

Lockhart was on the mound for the Broncos and finished six innings with five hits, one walk, and six strikeouts. Davis was behind the plate for the Broncos.

“We finished district undefeated at 12-0,” head coach Brad Elam said. “And we stayed undefeated on the season at 19-0-1. (The) kids are doing an outstanding job.”

The Broncos will play Boys Ranch in the Bi-District game on Friday, May 5 at Tascosa High School beginning at 5:00 p.m. Game two will be played on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. and game three will be 30 minutes after game two if needed.
