Poth begins quest for success with strong tournament play
POTH -- The softball season is still very much in its early stages, but the Poth Pirettes are off to a good start as they chase that elusive state title.
The Pirettes started the season with a narrow 4-3 loss in La Vernia, then traveled to Geronimo to compete in the Navarro Tournament, along with 28 additional teams. The Pirettes did well, though, and ended up finishing third overall.
Poth began by knocking off El Paso Ysleta 9-0, but then fell to Pflugerville Connally by the score of 4-3 in extra innings. From there, the Pirettes defeated Lytle, 7-1; Blanco, 11-0; Corpus Christi Calallen, 15-5; and Canyon Lake, 18-0.
“Let’s just say our offense is rolling right now,” said a pleased Coach Carilee Robbins.
With a strong tournament showing behind them, the Pirettes shifted their focus back to single-game action, as they had a rematch with Lytle Feb. 22. Poth played well, and Monica Cavazos earned another win, as the Pirettes topped the Lady Pirates 4-2.
“Overall, the team hit very well,” Robbins said.
The Pirettes enjoyed a little break this past weekend, but were scheduled to return to action Feb. 28 in Floresville.
