Tigers Defeat Class A Whitesboro

The Leonard Tigers stepped out of their class Wednesday to slap a 6-2 defeat on the Class A Whitesboro Bearcats. Whitesboro is champion of district 14-A.

Wednesday's game was a practice game for both teams as they are both waiting for play-off games. The game was called after 5 innings of play had been completed and Leonard was battling in the top of the sixth, because of rain.

David Campbell scattered seven hits for Leonard. Heads-up play by catcher Billy Steele stamped out a Whitesboro rally in the second inning when he pulled off an unassisted double play.
