This season there’s been a lot of firsts for the Plainview Indians baseball program.

Under the guidance of first-year head coach Ryan Luhmann, Plainview achieved its first 20-win regular season since 2017, finishing second in district 4A-3.

Thursday afternoon, the Indians chalked off another first, winning their first payoff series since 2016.

Plainview used a pair of dominating performances to easily sweep aside Seminole by scores of 12-0 and 9-1 to win the Bi-district championship, as the Indians punched their ticket to next week’s Class 4A regional baseball tournament.

Seminole got on the board with one run in the fourth, before the Indians got one run in the fourth and fifth innings to seal the victory.

Britton Sperry, Trevor Burton, and Chase Owen each had one RBI in the game.
