Cedar Hill Longhorns falls to Jesuit Rangers in bi-district round

Playoffs can bring jubilation or devastation, and with hopes of a state title in the balance mortality constantly looms for the seniors. As the Cedar Hill Longhorns took on the Jesuit Rangers in the bi-district round of the state playoffs all of these things were evident. Jesuit rolled into the contest on a ten game winning streak while Cedar Hill was fighting off a 2 game losing skid. Jesuit was also ranked 4th in the area by the Dallas Morning News so needless to say they were the favorite.

Things started off rocky for the Horns as Jesuit took a 3-0 lead and capitalized on a couple of errors by Cedar Hill. As they have all season the Horns showed heart, fought back, and tied the game at 3-3 in the sixth inning. During the sixth Cedar Hill notched four of their ten hits scoring all three of their runs. Sophomore pitcher Caleb Hamrick kept the boat afloat until he was relieved in the ninth inning by Vance Washko. With one out and two runners on base Mike Savage made a clutch hit bringing home what would be the winning run.

Unfortunately for the Horns the season ended in disappointment with a 4-3 loss. Cedar Hill notched 10 hits while Jesuit had only 6 but the Horns weren't able to turn those hits into runs. While they may still feel the sting of defeat there is nothing to be ashamed of for the resilient Longhorns. The seniors accomplished a lot and it was recently Joee Reyna has committed to play for the powerhouse Dallas Baptist University Patriots. Next year the Horns will make another run at it.
