ROUND ROCK – Coach Jason Seale’s Edgewood Bulldog baseball program enjoyed a historic season in 2015, delivering an overpowering run throughout both the regular season and playoffs en route to their first ever UIL State Baseball Tournament appearance.

That historic run by the Bulldog program finally hit a roadblock it couldn’t overcome at Dell Diamond in Round Rock with a 5-2 loss at the hands of the Bishop Badgers in the 3A State Semifinal on June 10.

Things started well for Edgewood, with righty Jackson Tyner striking out four batters in the first two innings to keep the Badgers at bay.

The Bulldogs offense used a patient approach in the home half of the second, scoring two runs and chasing Badger starter Aaron Cardona in the process.

Canton

The Canton Eaglettes 2015 softball season came to an end at home on May 8, with an 11-4 loss at the hands of the Pleasant Grove Lady Hawks. The win completed a two game sweep by the Lady Hawks over Canton in the best-of-three Area round playoff series between the two teams.

In game one of the best-of-three series on May 7, Canton struggled mightily on offense as Pleasant Grove’s Madison Haltom carried the Lady Hawks to a 3-0, perfect game victory over the Eaglettes.

Haltom went all seven innings for Pleasant Grove, striking out 12 batters without allowing a single Canton batter to reach via a hit, walk, hit by pitch, or error in the win.
