Lobos put memories of dismal spring in past
By TODD HVEEM
The Langham Creek Lobos had an uncharacteristically bad year during the 2010 baseball season.
But that did little to dampen the enthusiasm of fiery head coach Armando Sedeo.
In fact, it made Sedeo want to come back better than ever" in 2011.
From an offensive side, we had a pretty good year,'' said Sedeo, who watched his team struggle to an 11-17-1 overall and 4-13 District 15-5A record.
We just didn't have the guns,'' he added. The kids played as hard as they could play. It just didn't match up for us this year.''
But it could in 2011.
We had enough coming back this year that we thought we could make a big run, but you never know which way the ball is going to bounce,'' Sedeo said. But both our JV and sophomore teams won district this year, so that will be a plus for us. We just have to make sure we have enough arms on the mound. If we can find enough arms, good things should happen for us.''
Sedeo earned his 400th career victory when Langham Creek knocked off Ft. Bend Travis in its final non-district game of the season.
I didn't even realize it until after the game,'' Sedeo said. That was pretty nice. I hope to hang around for 400 more. But you never know.''
This summer, Sedeo will host the annual Fundamentals of Champions" baseball camps on June 7-10, June 14-17 and June 21-24 at Bear Creek Park.
We have been having this camp for about 15 years now,'' Sedeo said. I get a lot of help from the other coaches from around the district. We have seen a lot of kids come through our camps who go on and play at the high school level.''
The camp is broken down into offense, defense, pitching and hitting.
We have two days of offense and two days of defense per camp,'' Sedeo said. We cover just about everything.''
Campers will receive 12 hours of instruction, a camp T-shirt and other prizes. The cost is $105 per camper.
I think it is the best instruction these young players are going to get from several very good high school coaches,'' Sedeo said. We look forward to these camps every year.''
