— By CLINT FOSTER

For the third time in the past four years, the Mineral Wells Rams are district champions.

On senior night, Tuesday, at Pratt Field, the Rams (17-10, 8-2) battled back from a two-run deficit to beat the Castleberry Lions, 5-4, on a walkoff sacrifice fly from McCain Mason that scored Braxton Allen in a game that had something for everyone.

Senior Justyn Lee earned the win in a relief appearance and senior Paden Patino carried the Ram offense, finishing 4-for-4 with a double and two RBIs.

The win secured the outright District 6-3A championship for the Rams and a matchup with Vernon in the first round of the Class 3A playoffs.
