DISTRICT 30-3A SOFTBALL
Cotulla opened up district play 2-0 last week, winning a pair of contests to sit tied atop the league standings heading into a showdown with Natalia in recent softball action.
Defensively, the Cowgirls have allowed only four runs in its two wins last week, a 3-1 decision over Hondo and a 4-3 win over Lytle.
“After these first two district games I feel that it’s been our defense that has allowed us to come out on the winning side of things,” CHS Head Softball Coach George Martinez said. “Offensively, I feel we are doing just enough to manufacture the runs we’ve gotten to allow the defense to shut our opponents down. Our pitching has been lights out and when the ball is being hit, the defense on the field has taken care of business.
“As a team this year we agreed to take a more disciplined approach at the plate and it has paid big dividends. The focus the team has to take one team and one game at a time has really allowed us to stay grounded and continue to work hard at practice everyday.”
Martinez touted his senior group as the catalyst for the Cowgirls’ success this season.
“We have a strong senior group that has and will continue to lead by example,” he said. “We are going to go as far as this senior group takes us.”
Cotulla improved to 16-3 overall and 2-0 in District 30-3A.
The Cowgirls hosted Natalia Tuesday evening in a contest to decide the top spot in district. Cotulla will then be at Crystal City on Friday.
