“I’m proud of the boys for winning,” said Alvord coach Chris Staley. “From where they came from in the beginning to the end of the year, they’ve made great strides. They are pitching better and defensively are doing a much better job.”

Before getting to the championship game, the Bulldogs needed a late rally against Ponder. Down 5-4, Conner Patterson hit a two-out, two-run single to lift Alvord to the win.

“It was a nice hit in a two-out pressure situation,” Staley said.

The Alvord junior varsity is made up of primarily freshmen and sophomores with one junior transfer. The team went 10-4-1 in district play.
