City of Mont Belvieu, Barbers Hill ISD hosting ‘Parade of Champions’ for softball, baseball teams

Not just one, but two state 5A titles have come home to Mont Belvieu in the last two weeks. The Barbers Hill Lady Eagles softball team captured the title on June 5 by beating Aledo 4-1 in a showdown in Austin. Then, this past Saturday, it was the Barbers Hill baseball team’s turn at Dell Diamond in Round Rock where they took down Hallsville 2-1 and hoisted up the 5A championship trophy.

This is the first state title for both teams and the first time in UIL 5A competition that one school has won both titles in the same year.

To celebrate an amazing year and two titles, the City of Mont Belvieu and Barbers Hill ISD are partnering on a Parade of Champions that will take place on Tuesday, June 15 at 7:00 p.m. along Eagle Drive. The parade will depart from the BHISD Administration Building (9600 Eagle Dr., Mont Belvieu) and then travel north ending at Barbers Hill High School. The parade will feature both the state champion softball and baseball teams as well as the cheer squad and the Soaring Eagle Band.

Road Closure Information

Eagle Drive will be CLOSED from Eagle Creek Dr. to Wilburn Ranch Dr. from 6:45 p.m. until 7:45 p.m. to allow for a safe parade for both the participants and bystanders. Please plan to arrive at your watching location prior to 6:45 p.m.

Meet & Greet Event

Barbers Hill ISD will be hosting a meet and greet event with both teams’ players and coaches at 8:00 p.m. at the Barbers Hill Indoor Practice Facility following the parade. Families and fans of all ages are encouraged to come and meet the teams, have balls and shirts autographed, and take a lot of pictures.

  1. I have had a son compete for the 5A state championship and know the dedication and talent it takes just to get to that level of competition. The odds of both the boys and the girls teams winning state titles in the same year have to be off the chart. More than likely it will never happen again in their lifetime. What a thrill for Barbers Hill ISD to have produced these kind of athletes and employed first rate coaches that led them to victory. Everyone in that city should be very proud. I hope they have a wonderful turnout to celebrate their accomplishment. They deserve every bit of the recognition they get!
