The Benbrook Bobcat Baseball team met their challenge going into last week tied for 1st place with Diamond Hill-Jarvis.
The Bobcats hosted Game 1 with a charged crowd in the ballpark but fell short losing 3-6 to the Eagles. Going on the road for Game 2 it became a must win scenario for the Bobcats in their chase for a piece of the District Championship. The Bobcats played a determined and solid all around game shutting out Diamond Hill 3-0 sealing the Co-District Championship.
With the #1 Seed in District 9-4A to be decided, Game 3 was played Saturday afternoon at Arlington Heights. The Bobcats beat the Eagles 4-2 claiming the #1 seed moving into the Playoffs. When reflecting on last week's 3 game series against DHJ, Benbrook HS Head Baseball Coach Justin Chavez simply said, "It was a battle."
Bobcat Baseball has two non-district games remaining as they prepare to make a run in the Playoffs. This Saturday the Bobcats will host Graham HS and will then go on the road play at Stephenville HS on May 1st. The Bobcat's playoff game details are still to be decided and will be announced in the near future.
