Sinton Baseball Headed Back to State Tournament

CORPUS CHRISTI - Sinton is back in the State Tournament. The Pirates advanced to the Class 3A Semifinals with two-straight wins facing elimination. The fifth-ranked Pirates beat Hidalgo 11-2 and 5-2 on Saturday evening to win the Region IV Final best-of-three series.

"We hadn't lost a game since like February, so to bounce back shows this team's character and what we're made of," catcher Tracker Conn said. Then the senior added: "But we aint finished yet."

Next up for the Pirates is Argyle (31-9-1) at 1PM on Wednesday at Disch Falk field on the University of Texas campus in Austin. With a win, Sinton would advance to the 3A State Championship game on Thursday at 6:30PM.

"You're always happy for the kids because the kids set their goals and they have high expectations," Coach Gene Kasprzyk said.

This will be the Pirates first trip to State since 2007, and they'll be going for their fourth State Championship in school history - the last coming in 2002.
