Perrin students taking part in State Horseshoe Tourney

Getting to State in any event is normally an accomplishment.

Four Perrin High students, Jake Holmes, Lane Self, Wyatt Keeney and Tyler Welch, will be doing just that Saturday, Oct. 12 but the road to State was pretty easy. The foursome will be competing both individually and as a team in the first ever Texas High School State Horseshoe Pitching Tournament. 

Team Coach Jesse Laine, who is an assistant softball coach and ag teacher at the school, said he heard about the event recently.

“I heard it through the grapevine,” Laine said in an email. “I mentioned it to two of our students and they said let’s try it. We recruited two more teammates and we are going to give it a try.”

The event, which begins at 10 a.m. Saturday at Love Street Park in Weatherford, is the brainchild of John Allison, a Weatherford Noon Lions Club member.
