Bradshaw, Aggies outlast Zwolle

Friday against Runnels, a 2-1 upset winner over No. 1 state ranked Oak Hill on Saturday.
“It’s always fun going down there,” Bradshaw said. “It never gets old going to the state tournament.”
The Aggies (26-8) made this return trip of the nail-biting variety, seemingly in command going into the seventh and final inning with a 4-1 lead.

Animal auction bids on success

“We sold everything that we had,” Kennedy said. “Two animals (a bull and a heifer) were scratched from the sale, so we sold 62 all together. It was the best sale we’ve ever had — best attendance, strongest bidders and the highest grossing year we’ve ever had.”
He attributed some of the success of the sale to the students who helped bring it to life.
“The student help was probably the best we’ve had,” Kennedy said. “They helped with the setting up.”
