If you had asked members of the Breckenridge baseball team before the season where they wanted to be on June 4, they likely would have told you either playing in or preparing for the Region I-3A championship series.
But after having a potential dream season cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic, Thursday’s exhibition doubleheader with Aledo served as a pretty nice consolation prize for the Buckaroos.
Hosting the Class 5A No. 12 Bearcats in an unsanctioned event put together by senior standout Owen Woodward’s father, Brad, the Bucks swept the twin bill 4-0 and 7-5 to put a bow as best they could on a campaign that may have ended in Round Rock under different circumstances.
And while it wasn’t the ending a senior-heavy Breckenridge squad was hoping for, getting one last opportunity to take the field together provided the close-knit Bucks a sense of closure they wouldn’t have otherwise felt.
