Longview — The Pirates and Lady Pirates are still alive in the state playoffs.
Jack Stallard is the Sports Editor of the Longview News-Journal.
He spoke with KETK Sports Director Danny Elzner about the Pine Tree boys.
"The Pine Tree boys will play John Tyler at 6:00 Thursday. Hallsville will play Kilgore at 8:00. Great 4A double-header. Pine Tree is on a roll. Hallsville and Kilgore is a matchup of district rivals. Kilgore has won both of those earlier matches. But Hallsville won its first-ever playoff match a couple of weeks ago. They're still going strong."
What about the Pine Tree girls?
"They're also part of a double-header. They'll play Friday. The Lady Pirates will play Whitehouse Friday at 8:00 in Lindale. Kilgore will play Mabank at 6:00 Friday. A lot of good teams still playing."
