Joaquin Rams Football Stadium on April 30, 2021 –
Joaquin High School’s Rams Stadium is undergoing an overhaul. Joaquin now becomes the first facility in the state of Texas to install the revolutionary T°Cool® evaporative cooling technology to their new synthetic turf field. During warm weather months (especially in Texas), synthetic turf surface temperatures can get dangerously hot, consistently exceeding 150°, making fields uncomfortable and often unplayable. T°Cool® treated infill is a proven solution that reduces surface temperatures by 30-50 degrees, keeping student-athletes cooler and safer.
The Rams football team is surely looking forward to using the new surface. The team finished the 2020 season with an 8-2 record and they posted a 4-1 finish in District 10 2A-1. They were a Bi-District contender as the second place representative for their conference.
Center Roughriders Horseshoe Ballpark on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 –
The Center Roughrider fell to the visiting Carthage Bulldogs in a District 17 4A conference game on Tuesday. The Bulldogs used seven hits 12 walks and three Center errors to gain the advantage needed to end the contest in the bottom of the fifth inning due to the league’s 10-run mercy rule as they led 13-0 at game’s end.
Center’s Colton Crawford was able to reach base with an infield single in the bottom of the second inning and teammate Collin Jones led off the third inning with a walk, but a good defensive day, and seven strikeouts by Bulldog’s pitcher Brooks Brewster kept the Roughriders in check for most of the evening.
Center will finish their 2021 season on Friday, April 30 when they travel to Carthage for their final game of the season. First pitch will be at 7 p.m. at Bulldogs Ballpark.
