ALPHA OMEGA BASEBALL — Lions lose tough battle in playoffs

HUNTSVILLE — Alpha Omega Academy was close to knocking off the top-ranked baseball team in TAPPS 2A, but couldn’t quite finish the deal in Monday’s second round matchup against First Baptist Christian of Pasadena.

The Lions lost 6-5, despite outhitting their opponent 10-5.

A wild pitch and RBI single by Nathan Hsiao in the fifth inning tied the game at two runs apiece.

First Baptist regained the lead in the bottom half of the inning when the Lions walked the leadoff hitter and and two-out RBI single gave the Warriors a 3-2 advantage.

The Lions rallied and held a 5-3 lead halfway through the seventh inning after a single by Lane Smith.

But First Baptist had fortune go its way.  The Warriors scored two runs on an error, then a base hit ended the Lions’ season.

Alpha Omega head coach Bert Lyle called it “a blessing and a half to coach the players throughout the season and watch them develop.

“We outplayed them, but just gave them a couple of breaks at the end of the game,” Lyle said.

    At the end of the Sam Houston State football team’s first preseason practice Monday at Bowers Stadium, new head coach K.C. Keeler told his players that they “did O.K.” There were dropped passes, missed assignments and errant throws from starters and backups alike. But there were also incredible displays of athleticism, as well as a sense of urgency from players hoping to win a starting job.
    The fate of Sam Houston’s season could rest on the arm of whoever emerges as the team’s starting quarterback. On Monday,  sophomore Don King III played with the first team, but sophomore Jared Johnson and redshirt freshman John Roderique each saw a comparable number of reps.
