During the football season, the Calallen Wildcats were undefeated heading to the Regional Quarterfinals against the Austin Lake Travis Cavaliers.

But the Cavaliers blew out Calallen 48-17, eliminating the Wildcats from the playoffs.

Last weekend, the Wildcats got their revenge on the baseball diamond, eliminating Lake Travis in the Regional Semifinals in the first two games of the best-of-three series.

Calallen won the first game Friday night 3-0. Logan Verrett completed the shutout for the Wildcats, improving his already impressive record to 15-0.

Junior lefty Jordan John did not have the same luck in Game Two as his senior counterpart, although Calallen had a comfortable 4-1 lead heading into the bottom of the seventh when John's pitching began to fall apart.

After allowing two more runs to the Cavaliers, Calallen coach Steve Chapman depended on Verrett to close the game on only one day's rest.

With runners on the corners, Verrett allowed an RBI-single that tied the game 4-4, taking the game into extra innings.

In the top of the eighth with a runner at second, a base bit by Calallen's Kris Guerrero brought in Derek Hagy and put Calallen ahead 5-4.

Verrett returned to the mound in the bottom of the eighth with a one-run lead and a chance to close the series he started.

After getting his first two batters to ground out, Verrett allowed a double to keep the game going with two outs.

Then Verrett bore down and struck out his next batter, giving the Wildcats the Game Two win and series sweep, not even 24 hours since he last pitched.

Verrett also picked up the win on the mound, moving his season record to 16-0.

The Wildcats are one of eight baseball teams left standing as they advance to the 4A Region IV final against the Cedar Park Vista Ridge Rangers.

A win would put Calallen in the state tournament, which begins June 4 at the Dell Diamond in Round Rock.
