Softball playoffs got under way last week, and three of the area’s teams were good enough to reach the postseason. In Class 5A, the Hornets of East Central made the playoffs after finishing second in District 28. The Floresville Jaguars also made the playoffs out of District 29-4A with a fourth-place finish, and the La Vernia Bears finished first in District 28-3A to win the title.

East Central took on Taft in the bi-district round, and advanced to area with a 3-2 win in game one, and a 12-5 victory in game two. Kendall Talley, Haydi Bugarin, and Alexis Macias continued to have good showings at the plate, while Madison Strunk and Taylor Doege earned wins pitching for the Hornets.

East Central was scheduled to face San Marcos in the area championship this week. The teams will play a best-of-three series with the winner advancing to the region quarterfinals.

In Class 4A, the Jaguars had an up-and-down season, but rallied when they needed to and grabbed the fourth and final playoff spot out of the district. Floresville was put up against Gregory-Portland in the first round, the district champs out of 30-4A.

The Jags gave a good effort, but fell to the Lady Wildcats in a two-out-of-three series by the scores of 10-1 and 13-3. The loss ends the season for the Jaguars, while Gregory-Portland advances to area.

The only other team from the area to make the playoffs this season was La Vernia. The Lady Bears dominated in District 28-3A to easily win the title, and cruised into the playoffs as the No. 1 seed. La Vernia was paired with Wimberley in the first round, and was able to play one game last week.

In typical Lady Bear fashion, La Vernia dominated throughout the game and picked up an 11-5 win over the Lady Texans. Morgan Mikes started things off on the mound, and Renee Cummings and Mackinley Zimmerle came in to close things out. Alison Saenz had three hits in the game and scored 3 runs to lead the offense. Johnna Sturm, Kailee Wegehaupt, and Kara Myrick helped things along, as well.

Unfortunately, the best-of-three series was delayed a bit because of the Region IV track meet being held in Kingsville. The Lady Bears and Lady Texans were scheduled to play April 28, though results were unavailable as of press time.
