   “This group is going to be special,” Head Softball Coach John White said.
   “We are very young this year and skilled at all positions. The girls have improved every scrimmage and will continue to improve throughout the season.
   “They want to win and work hard every day. In practice you can see them helping coach and encourage each other everyday,” White said.
   “The girls have a very high ceiling and when you get that kind of talent along with a genuine team first mentality they will continue to rise. I’m very excited to watch them grow together this season.”

BCHS swimmers show improved times at region

   Blackcat swim team results from last weekend’s region championships in Sugar Land mirrored the BCHS times as the recent district meet in Victoria, said Swim Coach Bob Button.
   “Most of our kids went about the same times as at the district meet,” Button said.
   “That’s to be expected when we shave/rest for two meets that are so close together.
   “Our biggest drop came from Andi Salazar. She knocked off another 17 seconds in her 500 free,” Button said.
   “Our highest place was a 9th from Ashton Wallace in diving. 
   “He improved his score by 11 points from the district meet,” the coach added.
