SINTON, Texas — The Sinton Pirates have gone wire-to-wire as the #1 team in the state so far in Class 4A. If they are still atop the poll in a few days, they'll have completed their 2022 "redemption tour."
The Pirates were the favorite in Austin last season as well when they were eliminated by Rusk in the 4A State Semifinal. Sinton returned a majority of players from that roster who have used that upset as motivation all year long.
Now the Pirates get set to face a fifth-ranked Celina team that is making its first appearance at state in 20 years. Sinton is hoping that experience factor will come into play at Disch-Faulk Field this week.
The 4A State Semifinal between Sinton and Celina will be played Wednesday at 4 PM. The winner will face either #4 Argyle or #6 China Spring in the 4A Championship game Thursday night.
