Lions bats come alive too late

w-Lions BB DSC00089 9.43.22 AM

The Lions simply couldn’t get the bats going Tuesday night against Mansfield Timberview at home. Two Timberview runs in the second and two in the fourth were enough to give the Wolves a 4-1 win over the Lions. See Justin Tubbs’ report in the March 25 Ennis Daily News! Click here to sign up for […]

Ennis baseball falls to Red Oak

w-032415 Morales BB unnamed-1

Ennis dropped a sloppy 10-1 verdict against Red Oak on Monday, hardly the home debut the hosts were hoping for. Pitchers allowed 14 hits, four walks, but it was five errors that gift-wrapped the outcome. See Mark Warde’s report in the Ennis Daily News!

Such fine sights to see…

w-Julia Hollingsworth

The list of fine sights for me… usually includes great people, oftentimes athletes, whose humility is evident as though they don’t believe in the hype heaped upon them. …like Julia Hollingsworth, the Lady Lions world class softball player. She bats left-handed and throws right-handed. She also eats as a lefty, then writes as a righty. […]

Ennis boys soccer ties Indians

Waxahachie Mens Soccer vs. Ennis

A Waxahachie win Tuesday night would have boosted the Indians into fourth place, earning them the district’s final playoff spot.

Warde’s Wheelhouse

Firing at moving targets in the sportsworld I’m not saying that Ennis is superstitious, but, after a near daily string of postponements, cancellations, site changes and rescheduling of make-up games, it struck me as weird that neither the baseball nor softball team played on Friday the 13th. See Mark Warde’s report in the Ennis Daily […]

Softball home opener now Tuesday

w-hollingsworth bunt03_v_363

There is a 40 percent chance of rain in the forecast for Tuesday’s much-anticipated first softball home game for last year’s state finalist. But after being postponed numerous times already, the odds are better for a well-pitched district triumph. Ennis (8-1) is riding a seven-game winning streak and despite a lineup with five new starters, […]

Continuing their early season showing of solid pitching and good defense kept Ennis in Wednesday’s battle at Lake Ridge until yielding a run in the fifth in a 2-1 setback.
