Busy Week Continues For Mojo Baseball

Odessa, TX – While most are taking it easy this week for Spring Break, for the Permian baseball team it will be business as usual.  After dominating Abilene High 19-2 in the district home opener on Tuesday, Mojo will close out the week playing in the First Bank Classic on March 11-13.

The Lubbock ISD teams competing in and/or hosting the three-day event in the Hub City will include: Lubbock-Cooper (4-5A), Lubbock Coronado (4-5A), Lubbock Estacado (3-4A), Lubbock High (4-5A), and Lubbock Monterey (4-5A).

In addition to Permian (2-6A) making the journey into the Red Raiders’ stomping grounds, other teams expected to participate are:  Canyon Randall (3-5A), Frenship (2-6A), Plainview (3-5A), and San Angelo Central (2-6A).

Mojo is scheduled to play a total of six games, which will include a pair of District 2-6A games.  On Day One, the Panthers will open with Lubbock High and finish with Frenship*, both at Tiger Field.  Permian has met the Westerners twice this season, with both games ending in lopsided victories for the Black Cats.

A visit to Lubbock Cooper on Day Two will feature a game with the Pirates, followed by a district meeting with San Angelo Central*.  Cooper is another Lubbock team the Panthers have already played twice.  The Pirates are responsible for two of Permian’s three losses suffered in 2021.

Non-district games with Monterey and Coronado on Day Three will conclude the trip to Lubbock.  It will be the first meeting between the Plainsmen and Panthers since an early scrimmage, while the Mustangs absorbed an 8-5 loss to Mojo on February 26.

The Black Cats spent this past weekend in another multi-game event, the Tournament of Champions, where they won four of the five slated games.  The lone blemish came in a one-run 6-5 loss to Amarillo High at Ernie Johnson Field in Midland.

The First Bank Classic will be the last tournament-like environment Permian will be involved in until a probable state playoff run later in May.
