With slightly warmer temperatures and the smell of hot dogs in the air, you know it’s time for baseball season. This was certainly the case Tuesday, March 19, as the Kingwood Park Panthers faced off against the Tomball Cougars in a 5A Region III District 20 matchup that was sure to be close from the beginning.

The will and skill of a player can be measured in many different ways in lacrosse, as in other sports as well. It can be measured in speed, agility, toughness, but also in the ability to dominate on the field and as a team, the Kingwood Panthers did just that against the Friendswood Mustangs.


The Kingwood Lady Mustangs soccer team completed an undefeated District 22-6A season last week with an 8-0 victory over Humble in the regular season finale. The Lady Mustangs finished with a 12-0-1 district record and are 20-1-3 heading into the postseason.

Masyn Winn and Parker Hemphill combined on a perfect game as Kingwood blanked South Houston, 20-0, at home on Friday.

The Humble Wildcats baseball team opened District 22-6A play with a 6-4 loss to Sam Rayburn. Anthony Tejada drove in two runs and Austin Torres knocked in another, but the Wildcats’ four-run ninth-inning rally fell just short. Tejada worked 5 2/3 innings on the mound, striking out six. Samuel Ramirez finished up, fanning two Texans batters.

The Kingwood Park Panthers girls soccer team may have three games left to play in its district slate, but the Lady Panthers have been dominant enough that with a 3-0-1 stretch over the last two weeks, they clinched the 21-5A district title Friday night.
