The Centurion Baseball Team (8-4) will try to continue it's pre-district success when they face off with the London Pirates today at 4pm.
The St. John Paul II Baseball Team is fresh off of a successful Mira's Baseball Tournament, which included wins against 5A El Paso Parkland, 4A Beeville Jones, and a tournament-rule official win over 5A Tuloso-Midway (who would eventually play in the championship bracket at Whataburger Field). In the consolation game, the Centurions nearly pulled out a win vs 6A Houston Memorial(12-0 in District in 2016), losing 6-9 with the bases loaded.

AJ Garcia .500 in 10 AB with 5 RBI
Jackson Pullin .500 in 18 AB
Chris Sanchez .429 in 14 AB
Justin DeLos Santos .400 in 10 AB with 3 RBI
