For the past three years baseball playoffs have been an expectation by head coach David Walden and assistant coach Brian Tickell. This season started out rough for the Broncos and their number one starting pitcher Tejay Antone, with a 3-2 loss against Cedar Hill to start district. The Broncos ended the district season with a 11-4 record to clench the second seed position for UIL playoffs in the 5-5A district.
“I expected nothing less than for us to go to playoffs this season,” Antone said.
With eight seniors on the team this year all the juniors and sophomore call ups know what needs to be done: work hard and give it their all for their senior teammates.
“At the time it makes me sad, but I know that we’ll do our best to get to state,” Antone said.
The Broncos play L.D. Bell in a best of three series. Bell had an overall record of 16-10-1, ending their season in third place behind Grapevine, and the number one seed in their district, Colleyville Heritage.
“I expect us to work hard in every practice and every game, and if a team beats us we will know we tried our best,” Antone said.
Legacy will host one out of the three playoff games on Friday, May 4 for the Bi-District baseball championship.
