Coach Says Wall Hawks "Excited and Ready" for State


WALL, TX — The Wall Hawks head to the State Tournament on Friday, June 9, and their state semifinal matchup is officially set. The Wall Hawks will play Corpus Christi London on Friday at Dell Diamond Stadium in Round Rock at 12 p.m. 

Last season’s state champion, Corpus Christi London, finished their season with a 32-3-1 overall record. The District 30-3A champions went undefeated in district play with a perfect 10-0 mark. This is not the first time that these Hawks have faced daunting odds, and if they win on Friday, it will not be the last. With that being said, this Wall team continues to prove time and again that they deserve to be in the state tournament. The Hawks match up well with any opponent they face and have a great chance of advancing to the State final on Saturday.

Wall’s Head Coach Jason Schniers is doing all he can to prepare his boys for the challenges they face this weekend. Baseball practice was business as usual out at Wall’s ballpark at practice on Monday afternoon. "This week is about them. They've worked hard all year long and achieved a great accomplishment (this season). They are a part of 24 out of 600 teams across the state left playing," Schniers said.
