Cowboys head to hiatus with couple of tourney wins


     Johnson City -- The D’Hanis Cowboy baseball team played three games on Friday, March 13, coming away with a 2-1 mark in the Blanco County Tournament.

     The Cowboys had one more game scheduled on Saturday, March 14, but the final day’s competition was canceled by tourney officials, because of growing virus concerns.

     On Friday, the Cowboys dropped their tourney opener to Johnson City, 11-1, but rebounded with a 7-5 win over Comfort. In their final game of the tournament, D’Hanis beat the Marble Falls JV, 9-0.

     As of Monday, March 16, the University Interscholastic League has put an end to all interscholastic competition and practices until, at the earliest, Monday, March 30.

     The Cowboys (6-2) will miss home games against Lytle and La Pryor this week, followed next week by non-district games at Lytle, and at home against Charlotte. The JV had games on the schedule at Devine on March 16 and at Lytle on March 24.

     If the UIL’s competition ban is lifted as scheduled, the Cowboys would host Knippa on Tuesday, March 31, in their District 30-A opener.
