The Middle School baseball Longhorns remained unbeaten by sweeping a pair of road games this week.
They knocked off Westview 14-1 then shelled Cloudland 23-2.

Bradley tossed four strong innings on the mound to pick up the win over the Wildcats. He allowed only one hit and struck out six. Stacy Greer came on in the fifth and struck out the three batters that he faced.
“Our kids came to play,” said head coach Julian Crews. “They just went out there and got the job done. They were ready to go from the outset.”
That was evident by the sixth runs they scored in the second inning after putting up three in the first.
Petie Pavusek led off the game with a walk then scored on Ben Howard’s single. Livorisi added a solid base hit and Greer drove in the final run with a groundout.
The Horns led 3-0 after one.
It started to get ugly for Westview in the second inning after Johnson County added another six-pack of runs.
Preston Smith got things going by ripping a single. Cody Norris had a run-scoring double. Pavusek and Greer drove in runs with base hits and would score.
The massacre was on from there.
Johnson County scored single runs in the third and fourth frames. They would tack on another three in the fifth inning.
Greer had a mammoth day at the plate with three hits including a triple and two RBIs. Norris added two doubles and four runs batted in. Howard, Smith and Livorsi provided two hits each and scored twice. Pavusek crossed the plate three times and went 1-for-1. Mason Bragg had an RBI to help the cause.
