Rockwall-Heath begins baseball semi-final series Thursday at Texarkana


Rockwall-Heath’s mighty Hawks baseball team (27-8) will take on Texarkana in a Class 4A Region II semi-final best-of-three game series begining Thursday at 7:30 pm at Texarkana High School.

Their second game will be Friday at 7:30 pm at Rockwall-Heath. If a third game is necessary, it will be played Saturday at 8 pm at Northeast Texas Community College in Mt. Pleasant TX.

The Hawks earned the right to play in the semi-finals by sweeping Highland Park last Thursday and Friday nights, 17-10 and 5-1, behind the home-run hitting of U. of Oklahoma recruit Drew VerHagen and pitching of ace James Baune.

The Hawks (27-8) had finished the District 10A regular season in second place, one game behind Rockwall, but have won three straight playoff games over North Dallas and then Highland Park.

Texarkana Texas High School swept a two game series last week from Mesquite Poteet to advance to the semi-final.

The other semi-final series this weekend will pit Hallsville against McKinneyNorth, which knocked Rockwall out of the playoffs.

The winner of this series will meet in the Rockwall-Heath/Texarkana winner in the Class 4A Region II championship game at a date and time soon to be scheduled.
