HOUSTON – It was a night to remember for Jon Duplantier.

The former Seven Lakes High School and Rice University star made his major league pitching debut on Monday for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Duplantier gave up one hit, no runs and struck out two in three innings, earning his first-ever save in a 10-3 win against the Padres.

"The last 36 hours have been a whirlwind for me," Duplantier told Fox Sports Arizona in a postgame interview. "I'm just happy to be here and got the save for the squad, which was awesome.

"I was nervous, this was the first go. For years this was what the goal has been."

HOUSTON – It was another banner night for Humble ISD on the pitch.

For the third-straight season Kingwood girls soccer is heading to the Regional Semifinals with a 3-1 victory against Deer Park on Friday. Kingwood hasn't reached the Regional Finals since the 2010 season.

District-mate Atascocita moved on to the Regional Semifinals with a penalty kicks victory over Clear Springs. After full time and overtime, the Lady Eagles won the match 4-3 in penalty kicks. This is only the second time in program history Atascocita has reached the Regional Semifinals. The last trip to the fourth round came in the 2017 season.

Atascocita will face Tompkins at 12:30 p.m. and Cinco Ranch will play Kingwood at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12, at Deer Park's Abshier Stadium. The Regional Final between the winners will take place Saturday at 11:30 a.m.

Kingwood Park had the best night of all, sending not just its state semifinalist girls soccer team back to the Regional Tournament but also its boys team.
