Thursday Game Day Has Four Squads on Deck

Thursday, Mar. 10 is a busy one with four teams in action.

Team tennis gets an action-packed Thursday gameday underway in Longview for one of their final competitions of the spring season.

Coach Tony Martinez and his squads participate in the Longview tournament at 8 A.M.

That invitational is the second-to-last for team tennis, as their final contest prior to the district tournament takes place during SSISD’s Spring Break next week.

Sulphur Springs heads to Galveston for a tournament taking on teams from around Texas they would normally not have the opportunity to play.

That invitational runs March 24-26.

Coach Jerrod Hammock and his Wildcats tee off their final tournament Thursday.

Baseball has two games on Thursday, Mar. 10 first taking on Melissa at 11:30 A.M.

Sulphur Springs takes on the host Royse City in their second contest on the day, and on the Bulldog’s home field.

Coach Jerrod Hammock’s squad has two games Friday, both at Royse City:

  • 9 A.M. vs. Ennis
  • 2 P.M. vs. Naaman Forest

Saturday has baseball playing in another game, but is determined by Thursday and Friday’s results as the Bulldog Invitational is a seeding-style tournament.
