Highlands did its part to muddy the waters in District 28-5A with a 10-0 win over Brackenridge on March 31.

Owls junior pitcher Bryan Aguilar limited the Eagles (8-9, 5-4) to one hit at SAISD Field No. 2. Highlands (11-5, 7-1) shared first place with Harlandale (12-6, 8-1) and McCollum (10-7, 8-1) as a result of the win.

Highlands drew a bye April 2 while the Cowboys and Indians both notched victories, so the Owls fell a half-game off the pace and slipped to third. But the Owls will have a chance to recapture a share of the lead Friday, April 8, when they play Harlandale in a 6:30 p.m. game at the Frank Tejeda Sports Complex.

Against Brackenridge, Aguilar also was a standout at the plate. The junior produced three hits, including a double, drove in two runs and also stole a base. As a pitcher, he struck out eight and walked two in six innings.

Gabriel Gomez also finished with two RBIs for the Owls. John Cruz, David Perez, Erick Martinez and Josef Arzola each drove in one run.

The Dragons (15-4, 1-2) picked up their first District 28-6A win with a three-run rally April 1 against rapidly improving South San (5-12, 0-3).

At South San, Elerie Rivera led off the inning with a double and scored on Aaron Bosmans’ single. Juan Carlos Hernandez drove in two runs with a double.

Bosmans’ sacrifice fly tied it 2-2 in the fifth. He also belted an RBI double in the first.

South San took the lead on Reagan Gonzales’ RBI single in the third inning.
