I had a great trip down to Colorado City to shoot images for Ballinger, TX. They won a free Instagram giveaway. Social media image downloads (1600px long edge) are available for free, and high-resolution downloads and prints are available for purchase.
Here’s my review of the best 5 Coffee Shops in Amarillo, TX. Each of these coffee shops has its own unique atmosphere and flare worth stopping in for. Ratings: I set out on a Saturday morning and ordered one black drip coffee and one cappuccino with whole milk from each place. Black coffee is my go-to every morning and I’ll treat myself to a cappuccino about once a week.
Payton Bush was tired of being underestimated. The Randall second baseman had spent his childhood playing career often being overlooked because of his size. He was never picked by the best teams and was never asked to play in extra tournaments. It fueled him.
No one saw the superb senior season Tristan Curless put together on the diamond.
Not even himself.
The recent Amarillo High graduate had a breakout campaign to conclude his high school playing career, leading the Sandies both on the mound and at the plate en route to their 2021 journey to the state semifinals.
“The talent level of these guys was very high, but really just the camaraderie of this team this year is what really separated us from any team that I’ve had in the past,” said Johnson, whose Amarillo High squad reached the state tournament for the first time since 2016. “The guys really bonded well together and would enjoy coming to the park every day. Mix that in with really talented baseball players, it makes for a good combination.”
Scott Tankersley knows a thing or two about taking athletic programs to the next level. At Caprock, he won seven state championships with the girls wrestling team. As a Bushland baseball pitching coach, the team reached the state tournament in three consecutive years from 2010 to 2012. The first-year varsity Bushland softball coach led the Lady Falcons to the Region I-3A semifinals.
Overall, Adams finished with 12 triples, nine home runs, 48 RBI and 60 runs scored during Bushland’s campaign. However, it was her clutch moments and competitive attitude on the team is that made her so valuable, Tankersley said.Tankersley called her many things: fiercely competitive, a perfectionist, tenacious, loyal and a leader.
Tatem Pendergraft stepped onto the diamond this past spring ready to give maximum effort on each and every play. In her first varsity season on the Amarillo High softball team, the sophomore exceeded expectations at the plate, in the circle and defensively at shortstop on the way to earning Amarillo Globe-News Softball Newcomer of the Year honors.
