DISTRICT 29-4A SOFTBALL
PEARSALL BOUNCES BACK FROM TOUGH LOSS TO FLORESVILLE, ROUTS UVALDE, CARRIZO SPRINGS
Pearsall bounced back from a tough loss to Floresville with a sweep of its two district games last week, notching a 12-1 rout of Uvalde and a 12-6 win over Carrizo Springs to remain entrenched in the second place spot in the District 29-4A softball standings.
The Lady Mavs broke open a tight 1-1 tie in the fourth with an 11-run fifth inning to end its contest with the Lady Lobos early via the ten-run rule. The team utilized a more methodical approach to top the Lady Wildcats, who gave the team fits in their previous meeting.
“The team did great last week,” PHS Head Coach Melissa Sanchez said. “The lady’s did well on the field and during their at-bats. We still have work to do in getting ready for the playoffs and right now, we are taking every game as if it is our last.
“The playoffs are looking promising with our first round game being against the third seed from District 30-4A,” the coach said. “We are committed to being prepared going into that week. The girls are fired up and the Pearsall community is rallying behind them.”
Floresville claimed the outright district title with a 10-1 mark and swept the Lady Mavs in their two meeting this season. Pearsall is locked in second at 9-2 while Devine is third at 7-4. Carrizo Springs wrapped up the fourth place spot in the postseason at 6-5.
With a game remaining in league play, Pearsall’s first round opponent is yet to be determined although it will be the third place team from District 30-4A, likely Orange Grove, Ingleside or Rockport-Fulton.
