The Kingwood baseball and softball teams secured District 21-6A crowns over the weekend. On Friday, the Mustangs baseball team clinched the district title with a 4-3 win over Summer Creek while the Lady Mustangs secured a share of the district championship with a 10-0 win over C.E. King on Senior Night.
It was the season finale for the Lady Mustangs, who played their first game on their home field since Hurricane Harvey devastated the campus. They celebrated in a big way with senior Baylor commit Maddie Lindsey striking out 16 in throwing a complete-game two-hit shutout.
Senior Amanda Cleaver delivered two of the Lady Mustangs’ nine hits, including a sixth-inning home run, and drove in a pair of runs while fellow senior Haley Lee added two RBIs.
Seniors Lauren and Sidney Kuhrt were also honored on the special night.
Junior Jourdyn Campbell homered, doubled and scored three runs, and Ashley York contributed to the big win with two hits, four stolen bases and three runs scored.
The Lady Mustangs finished the regular season with an 11-1 record in district play (28-7 overall) and tied for first place with Atascocita. The two teams square off at 6 p.m. Monday to decide the district’s top seed in the playoffs.
The Mustangs baseball team ran their win streak to seven games by holding off Summer Creek and have now won 10 of their last 11 games to improve to 22-4-2 overall and 11-1 in district play.
With just two games left in the regular season, Kingwood holds a two-game lead over second-place Atascocita (9-3). The Mustangs own the tiebreaker over the Eagles having defeated them both times in league play.
Cody Lancaster picked up the win with 6 1/3 innings of work while Masyn Winn and Ben Cegelski led an eight-hit attack with two hits apiece.
The Mustangs close the regular season with a Tuesday game at Baytown Sterling and a home finale with C.E. King at Summer Creek High School, where they’ve played all home games this season. Both games are set to begin at 7 p.m.
