All Saints Set For Shot At State

If recent history proves correct, this could be the year the All Saints baseball team wins a state championship. The Trojans are back where they left off last year, in the state semifinals.

"I'm just really excited to be back," said senior pitcher Brody Wing.  "Kind of ease our minds from [last year's semifinal loss].  Hopefully we can win and move on to the finals and win a state championship."

This is head coach Jerry Courtney's fourth year running the program.  Each year, the Trojans have advanced further in the playoffs.  That means, the next step is the state championship.

"I want it for them," said Courtney.  "They've put a lot of work in.  We've kind of grown up together.  When i got here, this was my first year as a head coach, and obviously their first year playing high school baseball.  So, it would be a great way for them to end their high school career, for us to go out on a win."

"I think we have a great chance," said Wing.  "We have a really strong team.  Up and down the order, anyone can get a hit this year.  It's just a great feeling to know that, especially when your pitching, that you got guys bringing in runs, got defense behind you.  I think we got a great chance at this."

All Saints plays Fort Worth Southwest Friday in Waco at 4:00 for a berth in the Tapps 4A state championship game.
