Coppell returns to Cowboy Field tonight as it hosts W.T. White at 5 p.m.


The Cowboys cruised past Lake Highlands in a 10-1 victory last Thursday night in Dallas, bringing Coppell’s district 5-6A record to 6-0 and their overall to 18-3-1.


At last Tuesday’s game at home, Cowboys head coach Kendall Clark expressed his confidence in a capable pitching staff.


“We still have some arms we haven’t thrown,” Clark said. “Several of our pitchers are talented with offspeed which is extremely useful. There are times where you have to rely on that. Our staff seems to be in good shape for district games down the road.”


The Longhorns enter 9-6 overall and 4-2 in district


Though Coppell’s last home game, according to Clark, was certainly not the best performance of the year, the Cowboys were able to turn it around in the second game of the series against the Wildcats. Clark voiced his opinion on the usefulness of left handed pitchers throughout district competition.


“Lefties are a good way to attack,” Clark said. “I think [senior Eric Cashimere] will be a good opponent for these guys. He’s one of the arms we haven’t really used for district but I’m definitely confident in him, along with the rest of our guys.”
