The Harper High School Longhorns picked up two wins in the last week, including Monday’s District 29-2A season opener at Junction.
Harper split the two games it played in the Johnson City Baseball Tournament held late last week. While Thursday’s games were played, weather forced cancellation of the remainder of the action.
HHS lost its opening game by a 7-4 margin, but managed to pick up a 5-4 nine-inning victory later in the day over Charlotte.
Up next for the Longhorns will be more tournament action when they travel to San Saba on Friday and Saturday. From there, Harper will host Center Point at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
Harper 12, Junction 2
The Longhorns scored four runs in the first two innings on its way to a 12-2 road victory at Junction Monday.
From there, HHS added 10 insurance runs in the last three frames to secure the decision.
