Kilgore High diamond teams in action today after schedule shuffle


Rainy weather, and the threat of it tomorrow, has altered Kilgore High School baseball and softball schedules.

Kilgore's baseball team, who had been scheduled in a tournament in Harmony last week, wasn't able to play, as Harmony was forced to cancel the event.

Kilgore coach Eugene Lafitte worked to schedule a game in the early portion of the week, with the annual Oil Belt Classic tournament coming up Thursday.

The Bulldogs (0-1, having lost their season opener at Liberty-Eylau) will visit Whitehouse tonight at 6 p.m.

Kilgore opens the OBC on Thursday at 11:45 a.m. here at Driller Park against Central Pollock. A full OBC schedule, for Driller and the other sites, will be a part of the News Herald's tournament coverage on Wednesday.

Kilgore High's softball team also had to sit out the weekend, after the White Oak tournament was canceled.

Kilgore coach Cheyenne Kirkpatrick, seeing the strong chances of rain in the forecast for Tuesday, moved her home opener with Garrison to today. The Lady Bulldogs (2-3) will host at 6 p.m., here at Stream-Flo Field, beside Driller Park.

The Lady 'Dogs are scheduled for the Longview Texas Two-Step tournament at Lear Park that begins Thursday.
