The mixed up mess that was the bottom-half of District 16-6A became clear Saturday evening.
With The Woodlands’ 10-4 win over College Park and a 6-4 extra-innings win by Kingwood over the Highlanders later in the day, the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds were shored up. Kingwood, which was in a tie for fifth place a week ago, stakes claim in the third spot while The Woodlands takes the fourth-seed going into the bi-district round of the UIL Region II-6A Tournament this week. click here for complete story

With two innings remaining and a 3-1 lead, College Park needed just six more outs to complete its series comeback over Austin Lake Travis in the Region-II 6A quarterfinals.
The Cavaliers defense, however, didn’t respond well, as Lake Travis scored five runs combined in the sixth and seventh inning to steal the series away from College Park on Saturday, 6-3.
Back-to-back errors by the Cavaliers allowed two Lake Travis base runners to get on before College Park starter Chandler Morris was replaced by reliever Nate Fisbeck. The senior had just as difficult a time as his starting companion in the inning, allowing a runner to advance on a passed ball, and watching as another error allowed Lake Travis’ Hudson Fife to get home. click here for complete game
College Park alumnus pursuing professional dream in Kansas City organization
College Park baseball produced its fourth draft pick earlier this month.
Infielder Corey Toups, a 2011 graduate who was playing at Sam Houston State, was selected by the Kansas City Royals in the 15th round, No. 453 overall, of the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft. He signed with the Royals shortly afterward, then reported to Idaho Falls, Idaho, for short-season rookie ball.
“I expected it, just because I stay in contact with a lot scouts, and they often will ask me – even though the kids are in college – about our guys who have gone on to play in college and are draftable,” College Park coach Jason Washburn said.
“So I had received some calls on Corey, people just checking on him, and so obviously, with those calls, I knew there was interest, and probably 15th round’s a good spot for him.”
The Royals weren’t one of the teams that called Washburn about Toups, but apparently they knew enough. click HERE for complete story
