Sports Thoughts

by Mike Organ

The mixed tennis duo of Ben Spencer and Ally Abshire have excellent pedigrees. Both have played in the state tourney with different partners. If their chemistry is good they should become the first mixed doubles state champions from Lexington. Ben would become the first tennis two gold medal winner. Elydia Farwell was the first repeat gold medal winner.

Speaking of Elydia…….. It was sad to see that her pulled muscles caused her not have a chance at a three-peat. The way she was running she should have won again and had a chance to become a special athlete that won state four years in a row; but, it was not to be.

The Lady Eagle softball team will be in the playoffs. They could place anywhere from first to third, depending on the outcomes of the games this week. I hope it will be first place and a bye in the first round.

The Astros and Rangers are off to a bad start. The Astros have lost two games because of poor relief pitching. The Rangers had a long losing streak broken Sunday by an extra inning homer.
