Seguin Softball Tournament
Pearsall crushed Universal City Randolph and then went 1-4-1 at the Seguin Tournament in non-district softball action last week.
The Lady Mavs opened the week with a crushing 22-0 three-inning, run-rule win over Universal City Randolph on Tuesday. The team accounted for ten doubles, seven singles and a triple in their three at-bats.
Sophia Garza allowed only a single hit, one walk and struck out five in her short time on the mound.
Although the team struggled at Seguin, new PHS Head Softball Coach Tara Staten said she is optimistic things will turn around based on the attitude of the team.
“We have fight in us and if we are down we find it in ourselves to fight back and either tie it up or regain the lead,” She said of her team’s resilience. “We just need to push a little harder and finish a game.”
In action at Seguin, Pearsall lost 4-3 to San Antonio FEAST, tied New Braunfels 6-6, lost to SA Johnson 9-2, topped Providence and lost a 3-2 decision to Seguin. The team closed out with a very tough 6-2 decision to Incarnate Word in which the coach took sole responsibility for the loss.
“We lost leads and games with only two outs to go against Incarnate Word, Seguin and New Braunfels,” she said. “The Feast loss was my fault, I forgot to substitute Alyssa Garcia. We were down 4-1 and scored two after back-to-back doubles.
“I wanted DH Alyssa Garcia for a slapper that was struggling that day and Alyssa got the game winning hit, but I forgot to sub her in so we lost 4-3. Two runs scored but when they went into the dugout they were called out and Alyssa was automatically out. Tough loss. That’s on me.”
Pearsall’s schedule gets no easier this week as they took on Hondo Tuesday evening and have a doubleheader on Friday against Corpus Christi Calallen and SA East Central.
“I am very confident in my girls,” Coach Staten said. “It’s still early in the season.”
