At the beginning of last week, all three local Humble ISD 21-6A baseball teams were tied for first.

Now, there are just two, after the Atascocita Eagles and Kingwood Mustangs both swept a pair of games this past week.
The big matchup of the week was Summer Creek and Kingwood, two of the three teams in that three-way tie.
In the top of the first inning, Tre Richardson led off with a single for the Mustangs, and after that, Carter Amarantos walked.
Then, a red-hot Masyn Winn, who hit a grand slam when the Mustangs beat North Shore, stayed hot as he launched a home run to left center field to put Kingwood up 3-0.
The Mustangs didn’t stop there, adding two more in the first, and then later, added one in the sixth and six in the seventh for a 12-0 win.
The Mustangs then followed that up with an equally impressive performance against Baytown Sterling, winning 11-0. In all, the Mustangs, in their last four games, have outscored their opponents 45-5.

The Bulldogs, following that game, beat Channelview 3-1 on Thursday to stay within one of the district lead.

While the Mustangs were busy rolling through the week, Atascocita kept pace with a pair of wins, 9-5 over Baytown Sterling and 13-1 over C.E. King to remain tied for first place.

In 21-5A, the Kingwood Park Panthers split a pair of games, falling at Porter 7-6 Tuesday but beating Crosby 5-0 Thursday. They are in a three-way tie for third in 21-5A with Splendora and Porter.

The Wildcats tough season continued last week as they fell twice in district play, 12-2 to Splendora and 24-20 to Dayton. They are 2-6 in 21-5A.

This week, Kingwood is at C.E. King and Atascocita, Atascocita is at Goose Creek Memorial then hosts Kingwood, Summer Creek hosts North Shore then goes to Baytown Sterling, K-Park goes to Crosby then hosts Dayton, and Humble hosts Dayton and is at New Caney.

I am proud to be this area’s Tribune Newspaper voice for Humble, Atascocita, Kingwood, Kingwood Park and Summer Creek High School athletics, a capacity I have served in since the fall of 2011. High school sports are something I have grown to love since I started in this position, watching young kids live out their dreams in competition throughout the area and throughout the state. My greatest thrill in this position was being on Floor Eight at NRG Stadium in December of 2016 when Atascocita High School qualified for the state football semifinals for the first time. Aside from reporting sports, I am a regular parishioner of St. Martha Catholic Church of Kingwood. I am also a two-time graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s College of Journalism and Mass Communications, and am a proud, but realistic, Nebraska Cornhuskers supporter. I do root for Houston’s local sports teams, but the Huskers are my team forever.
