The Paris High Wildcats played Wills Point in a best two out of three series over the weekend. The story of the series was Cannon Chadwick and Kamron Summeral. The two players combined to toss back-to-back no hitters for the Wildcats as they moved on in the playoffs.
Chadwick had 11 strikeouts and two base on balls while Summeral fanned 10 and also gave up two walks. Wills Point only had one runner reach third base in the series.
Paris will play Gilmer this friday at Northeast Texas Community College in Mt. Pleasant at 7:30 and at Hub Hollis field in Paris on Saturday at 2:00 pm. If necessary game three will follow afterward.
Paris High Junior Tanner Napier finished second in Class 3A State Golf Tournament. Napier, who took first place in the District and Regional tournament shot an opening round 77 and a 75 in round two. He finished four strokes behind the leader and eventually won a playoff to claim second place.
“I hit the ball good,” Napier told eParisExtra.
When asked about regrets, Tanner said he made some choices in the first round he’d like to have back.
“I took a chance on 18 that I never should have taken and wound up with a tiple bogey,” he said. “I thought about that hole on the drive home and how I would have done it differently.”
Overall, he can’t be too unhappy with what he did. Finishing second place in State isn’t a bad accomplishment for someone who still has another year of High School.
The North Lamar Panthers entered Saturday’s game against Crandall needing a win to move on to the next round of the baseball playoffs. The Panthers lost game one 11-1 in six innings, defeated Crandall 5-3 in game two and now were facing them to decide who wins the series. It didn’t take long for Crandall to jump out on top before eventually winning 13-2.
Crandall had their star player, Ryan Long, on the mound for them while the Panthers would rely on Brandan Dusenberry. After a scoreless first inning Crandall was able to put up four runs in the second inning. Long had an RBI double, which was followed up by a two-run triple. After a few scoreless innings, Crandall would up another four runs in the fifth inning to make the score 8-0.
North Lamar would have their chances, though. The Panthers loaded the bases in the fourth inning with one out and couldn’t bring anyone home. Jacob Cowling would provide the loan offense for the Panthers as he smashed a two-run double in the sixth inning. It would be the only runs the Panthers would manage for the game. Crandall would add five more in the seventh.
