Sports

The high school baseball season is in full swing in El Paso as 20 teams from across the state of Texas took the field for the Annual Southwest University Spring Baseball Classic.

Among those teams include the Canutillo Eagles, who came out swinging a hot bat on Thursday. The Eagles produced wins over Cathedral and Mountain View and appear to be on their way in advancing as the winner of Pool D.

Other local Day 1 winners include Horizon, who defeated Fabens and Pebble Hills, as well as Clint. The Lions topped Burges and Irvin to start tournament play 2-0. 

Pool play continues Friday and championship games will take place on Saturday.
