The Reagan County Owls Baseball team are District Champions for the first time in 15 years.
The group put together an amazing season (20-4) and peaked at the right time to take a run at the District Title.
The team finished district play up Tuesday night with a 14-1 win over Tornillo.
The win helped the Owls maintain their three-way-tie with Sonora and Alpine for the district lead.
Each team split games with the others to finish the year neck and neck.

Ernesto Rios, Tony Flores and Stephen Zuberbueler lead St. Margaret of Cortona's "Way of the Cross" event Friday to observe the day Christ died on the cross at Calvary over 2,000 years ago. Roughly 50 members of the church took part in the Good Friday event that has been drastically shortened this year due to heavy traffic in Big Lake. 



After a strong rebound in 2010, the pace for drilling activity in Reagan County has remained fairly steady.
The one major change since the decline in 2008 has been the increase in horizontal wells.
There were four horizontal permits issued in 2009 and 2010 combined. That number began its rise in 2011 when the number jumped to 36.
The horizontal permits continued to roll into the Texas Railroad Commission with 166 in 2012 to a booming 255 in 2013.
