NEW SUMMERFIELD —
The Hornet diamond boys will drop the curtain on their baseball season Saturday when they trek to Kerens to play Agape Christian Academy of Corsicana at 10 a.m.
New Summerfield polished off Agape Christian, 12-4, late last week to earn its latest win.

A quintet of juniors will be looked at as leaders next season.
That group includes, Francisco Parra, Israel Cruz, Abel Servin, Justin Hayes, Shawn Johnson and Chris Hernandez.
Sophomores on this year's squad are, Devin Abercrombie, Cesar Hernandez, Dakota Harvey, Ben Davis and Gabriel Hernandez.
New Summerfield also had seven young men that saw duty as freshmen this season.
That bunch included, Chance Carr, Dylan Webb, Dillon Fowlkes, Alex Rubio, Juan Mendoza, Wesley Stewart and Derrick Donnell.
