As this issue of the Wilson County News hits stands, the 2012 softball and baseball playoffs will be well under way. Still, it’s important to see how everyone got here.

In varsity baseball action, only two of the seven schools covered in our readership area made the playoffs. Several schools came close, missing it by just a game, but in the end, only Poth and Stockdale will see postseason play.

Poth had a long district season, and went 13-0 before dropping its final game of the regular season to George West. As the 30-2A champs, the Pirates will enjoy a bye during the first round of competition. Poth played a warmup game with Shiner last Friday, and stayed on track with a 5-4 victory.

The other area baseball team in the playoffs is Stockdale. The Brahmas went 4-4 through the regular season, but won the games they needed to, and grabbed District 29-2A’s third and final spot. Stockdale defeated Ben Bolt last Friday in a warmup game 9-7, but then fell in another warmup game last Saturday to Cuero. The Brahmas will face George West in a bi-district game to be announced.

On the girls’ side of things, five of the area’s seven teams earned the right to participate in postseason competition. Falls City, Poth, Stockdale, La Vernia, and East Central all made the cut.

In Class 1A, the Beaverettes of Falls City once again flexed their proverbial muscle. While the team isn’t entering the playoffs as the No. 1 seed from the district, the Beaverettes should be ready for the competition. Falls City was scheduled to face Ben Bolt May 1 in the bi-district championship round.

Just up the road from Falls City, the Poth Pirettes made their return to the playoffs. Poth generally wins its district and makes a deep run into the playoffs, but had a little different experience this season. The Pirettes finished second in the district behind Marion, and then fell to Karnes City last week in a bi-district series, ending the team’s season.

Right behind Poth in District 29-2A was Stockdale. The Lady Brahmas grabbed the third and final playoff spot, and were scheduled to take on the Jourdanton Squaws. The game was played April 30, and results were unavailable at press time.

The La Vernia Lady Bears started slow this season, and struggled during their first two district games. The team caught fire from there, however, and ripped off 10 straight wins to finish second in 28-3A with a 10-2 mark one game behind Pleasanton. The Lady Bears were scheduled to face Somerset in a one-game playoff May 1.

The East Central Lady Hornets had another great year in 2012, and the team finished second in the District 28-5A standings right behind Southwest. The Lady Hornets met up with Clark in the first round of the playoffs last week, though, and ended their season with losses of 8-2 and 7-3 to the Lady Cougars.
