TEMPLE 13, KILLEEN 0, 5 INN.: Screwball, riseball, curveball — everything worked for Temple pitcher Lexi Smith.
The senior was perfect at Tem-Cat Field, striking out 13 of the 15 batters Killeen sent to the plate en route to a five-inning, victory that wrapped up the first half of the Tem-Cats’ District 8-5A schedule.
Killeen (2-27, 0-7) put just two balls in play — both groundouts — and Temple (9-13, 5-2) was strong at the plate against the Lady Roos (2-24).
Killeen coach Randy James said his team needed to get some early bunts down to have a chance against Smith (9-12), but the Lady Roos struggled all night to make contact.

The loss drops Gatesville’s overall record to 7-13-1 and gives the Hornets their second consecutive loss to start District 8-3A play.
LAMPASAS 6, BROWNWOOD 5: At Lampasas, the Badgers scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, including two on a home run over the left field wall by senior Ralph Marez. The victory improves Lampasas’ District 8-3A record to 1-1.
BELTON 6, COPPERAS COVE 0: At Copperas Cove, Belton scored four runs in the top of the first inning and never let up en route to a shutout victory. Jayson Cole produced the Bulldawgs’ only hit of the game, and Copperas Cove’s defense committed three errors in the loss. The defeat drops the Bulldawgs’ overall record to 9-5-1 and 2-2 in District 8-5A play.
Badger tennis turns in solid showing at Hendrickson tourney
Lampasas competed in the Pflugerville Hendrickson tournament Friday along with more than 20 other teams and delivered a strong showing, according to head coach Kenneth Peiser.
In girls doubles, Sami McKenzie and Tara Pergande finished second, while the boys tandem of Shrader Davis and J.D. Bynum placed fourth.
In singles, Michaela Ellison finished second and Carolyn Laborde won the consolation championship for the Lady Badgers, and Tyler Connell placed fourth in boys singles.
“Bowie was the dominant team that we ran into in the semis and quarters of our draws, as well as Cedar Ridge and Austin Anderson,” Peiser said. “With so many teams, we did a pro set for each match until the semis, which we then played two out of three. Some players had five matches on the day.”
In mixed doubles, the tandems of Shane Moore-Rhiannon Wright and Tristan Myrick-Leigh Adamski each went 1-1, as did the boys duo of Lance Cofield and Marcus Morua and the girls duo of Laura Bynum and Alexis Kaufert.
Brian Collier went 2-1 in singles.
