Harper baseball wins pair

By Danny Hirt

The Longhorns picked up two wins during last week’s baseball tournament hosted by Johnson City.

After dropping a 16-9 decision to Granger in the opening game on Thursday, the Longhorns defeated Johnson City 16-14 later in the day and then topped Lampasas 12-8 on Saturday.

Two Longhorn players — Trace Boatright and Levi Lashley — were named to the all-tournament team.

Boatright struck out five and issued two walks during his four and two-thirds innings of pitching in defeating Johnson City in Harper’s second game. Meanwhile, Lashley went 9-for-14 (.643) and scored four runs during the two days of action.

Next up for Harper will be an appearance in the San Saba Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
