+ OVER CAPAC Hays CISD student population could reach 25,930 in 10 years. - Page 3B HaysFreePress., April 26, 2017 Page 1B BY LOGAN MCCULLOUGH The Lehman Lobo baseball team left little doubt of its dominance last week as it cruised to an 11-1 win over the Le- ander Lions in six innings April 18. Lehman maintained momentum as they closed the 2017 season by debating Leander on Saturday, which secured the program's first district series win, The Lobos appeared sharp from the jump April 18 as they put together a 1-2-3 inning in the opening frame. But the Lions were able to reach base following the first and only Lehman error of the game in the second inning. Lehman head coach Tony Robinson said his team has performed well on offense all season; however the Lobo de- fense has struggled. "We've been swing- ing the stick really good all year," said Robinson. "We've just struggled on defense a little bit, and when we've struggled on defense it's hurt us. But it's nice to know this is what we should have been doing." With six outs on seven batters faced, the defense did its job in the first two frames. This success helped motivate the offense, as Lehman followed its de- fensive performance with a three-hit, five-run third inning, capped off with a two-out grand-slam over the left field fence from senior first baseman Courteney Curry. "I just stayed patient and kept my eye on it," said Curry. "It was a big play, but this was a huge win for our team.
