Vikings end season with win over Bears
May 2, 2010By CHRIS GANNAWAY of L G Pinkston High School
On Friday night, the Vikings of LG Pinkston took on the Bears of South Oak Cliff in the final game of the year for both teams. The Vikings won the game 10-3.
Senior pitcher Pedro Barco finished out his career with an exciting and commanding performance with a complete game 3 hitter. He recorded an astounding 14 strike outs.
Seniors who will be leaving the Vikings Baseball team this year are: #2 Pedro Duran, #9 Pedro Barco, #12 Candelario Carrizales and #16 Charlie Johnson. Each of these seniors will be missed.
The Vikings finshed out the season with their best record in 2 decades. They recorded 11 wins overall and 14 losses. They also finished up the district at 7-7 with the first win ever over Seagoville along with 2 wins each over Carter, AM Smith and SOC.
Thank you to the Vikings Baseball team for a record breaking year. Work hard this summer and be ready to make the playoffs next season.
