O'Connor set to face New Braunfels in baseball playoffs
SAN ANTONIO - The high school baseball playoffs start Friday night, and some tasty first-round matchups thanks to the UIL re-alignment this year.
Northside schools no longer open against the Corpus Christi teams. They get SCUCISD schools.
The 28-6A champs are the O'Connor Panthers, and they'll get New Braunfels in Round 1 starting Friday night.
For Panther head coach David Collenback, this is his ninth district title with O'Connor after Holmes took the district crown in 2016 and made a long playoff run.
The Panthers' bats are coming alive at the right time, but Collenback knows the Unicorns will be a stern test, and once the playoffs start, anything can happen.
