One could not ask for better weather for a family picnic, a Sunday drive or an annual spring adventure like the Lake Area Classic that wound up yesterday afternoon with a Cowboy loss to Texas State 5-3 in 11 innings to bring the 'Boys to 3-4 on the season.

All scoring stopped after the third until the Cowboys tied the game in the bottom of the ninth, but in the top of the 11th, the Bobcats scored twice to ice the cake.

Carson Maxwell led the Cowboys with four hits 4-5, including a HR, double, a run and two RBIs.  Reid Borque went 3-5 with a stolen base and one RBI.

Next Home Game at Joe Miller

The Cowboys take on Alcorn State tomorrow night (Tuesday 26 Feb) before Nicholls and Holy Cross come to town for the Mardi Gras Classic.
