It was a far from the ideal weekend for the Waxahachie Indian baseball team.

First, rain forced the annual Robert Dulin Memorial Tournament to relocate to Corsicana High School. The Tribe then dropped three of the five games, despite outscoring their opposition 18-12 over the three-day tournament.

The Indians began the weekend with a 5-4 loss to Euless Trinity before bouncing back with a 5-0 win against Corsicana. Waxahachie then lost 4-1 to Bryant (Arkansas) and capped the tourney with a 6-0 defeat of Birdville.

Joey Trevino led the Indians at the plate. He went 7-for-17 at the dish with the lone Indian home run, one triple, three doubles and a team-high five RBIs and five runs scored.

Shortstop Peyton Graham also roped three doubles. Graham finished 5-for-17 with four RBIs.

The Indians finished the tournament 29-of-113 at the plate (.257) with 11 extra base hits and 20 walks to 24 strikeouts.

Indian pitchers allowed just seven earned runs while striking out 29 and walking 11.

Parker Refro tossed six innings of six-hit ball and allowed one earned run. He also struck out three.

Will Morgan threw five scoreless innings with 10 punchouts.

Anthony Mata, Trevino and Trevor Mott all threw four innings. Mott allowed the only runs of the bunch, surrendering three runs and striking out four.

The weekend prior, Waxahachie knocked off then-No. 1 Amarillo (8-4) and No. 2 Forney (4-0) in the 27th annual Tyler Rose City Classic. The Indians finished the tournament 2-2-1 after losing to Lindale (4-1) and Sulphur Springs (8-0) and tying Robert Lee (2-2).

The Indians are now 4-5-1 on the season.


Waxahachie returns to action next weekend, March 8-10 in the Corsicana tournament. The Indians first play at 9 a.m. Thursday against Waco Robinson.
