“These guys worked hard in the heat and we are ready to go to sectionals,” head coach Bud Maddux said. “We are coming back Sunday afternoon to get a thing or two we noticed that we can work on. They will get after it. they are hard workers.”

Lufkin will move on to the Texas East Section I tournament to play the winner of District 3 on July 2 at 7:30 p.m.

“It is going to be tough,” Maddux said. “We just have to go out there and play and win the first one.”
