HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL: Those rallying Rabbits


Bowie High School head baseball coach Ryan Rogers said the Jackrabbits didn’t lose confidence during Tuesday’s District 3A-9 game versus Paradise.
That’s despite Bowie being down in a 2-0 hole heading into the bottom of the sixth inning.
“We still felt like we would come back and win the game,” Rogers said. “The kids trusted the process.”
In the end, Bowie rallied for a 3-2 conquest over Paradise, sending Jackrabbit players onto the field for a victorious pile.
Bowie, ranked in the top-20 in the state in various polls, won when Vernon College-signee Coby Bentley smacked an opposite-field double to drive home Chandler Dean.
“Coby came up with the big hit for us,” Rogers said. “It’s something we see from him every day in practice.”
The Jackrabbits improved to 13-1-2 before Friday’s game against Henrietta. They will play Holliday on Tuesday here in Bowie.
Rogers was pleased to see Bowie put pressure on Paradise right away in the bottom of the seventh.
With one out, Barrett Brooks walked. Read more in the weekend Bowie News, including the complete box score.
