Last night the LRHS baseball team beat the Braden River High Pirates 7-1.

Mustang head coach Ryan Kennedy said, “Last night was a team that played unselfish baseball who played small ball and gave up their up at bats for the team to win a ball game.”

Junior outfielder Justin Curtis said he’s “glad to see that people came out and we are grateful for all of their support.”
