BIRTHRIGHT — North Hopkins head baseball coach Tim Henderson is encouraged about the future, despite the recent loss in the playoffs.
The Panthers fell 12-0 Tuesday in the area Class 1A baseball playoffs to undefeated and No. 1-ranked Carlisle in Longview.
North Hopkins had won the opening playoff game 9-4 in action against James Bowie in the bi-district playoffs.
“We did not play well in the game against Carlisle, we had several errors. If we have a good game, it might not be 12-0, we could have made it closer. I am proud of the effort of our team this year. We played with nine players for the second year in a row and we had no injuries,” Henderson said. “So we have everyone coming back, plus four eighth graders who will be up and help us.”
The Panthers ended the year 15-6-1 tied for second in the 17-A race.
“We overcame a lot this year,” Henderson said. “Our assistant coach was killed in a motorcycle accident earlier in the year. We look forward to a good year next season.”
