Poth......................17
Brooks Academy...... 0


SAN ANTONIO -- District 29-AA softball opened last Friday as the Poth Pirettes traveled to San Antonio to take on the Brooks Academy Tigers. Coming off winning the Blanco and Flatonia tournaments, head Coach Carilee Robbins and the Pirettes were relaxed and ready to begin their trek to the playoffs as district play began.

It was obvious early on that the Brooks Academy Tigers were outclassed. Senior pitcher Monica Cavazos dominated, tossing a two-hit game that ended after three innings due to the 10-run mercy rule. Cavazos struck out three, walked none, and faced only 11 batters as the Pirettes easily dispatched the Tigers in a contest that lasted less than an hour.

A well-coached and disciplined defense played a flawless game. Seniors Kayla Boening and Heather Rocha clogged up the middle of the infield, while Ryann Boening handled the hot corner at third and Kaylee Lyssy dug out every throw at first. With Destiny Rodriguez, Kelsey Garcia, and Lindsey Lyssy covering every inch of the outfield, the home team Tigers were only able to manage two base runners and never threatened to score.

While the entire team made constant solid contact with the ball, the offensive onslaught that resulted in 17 runs in only three innings was led by freshman catcher Charity Fuller’s performance, as she went 3 for 3 with a triple, 3 runs scored, and 3 runs batted in.

The Pirettes’ quest for the playoffs continues this week as they welcome the Stockdale Brahmas and the Luling Eagles to Poth for continued District 29-AA play.
