Friars build momentum with tournament championship

Friars build momentum with tournament championship

A reversal of fortune is just what the Bishop Lynch baseball team needed, at exactly the right time.

The Friars had won just one of their previous 11 games before heading to Tomball for the Rosehill Christian Tournament last weekend. There, the Friars (7-9-1) bested Northland Christian, Emery/Weiner, and Legacy Prep Academy to claim the tournament championship and build some momentum heading into district play, which begins Wednesday at PCA.

The Friars will face Prestonwood Christian at 3:00 pm on Wednesday and host the Lions on Thursday at 7:00 pm. During spring break the team will host John Paul II next Tuesday and play in Plano on March 15. Both games are scheduled for 7:00 pm.
