Lady Tigers Softball in Bi-District Action

 

Now it is down to business for the Lady Tigers as they finished off Marble Falls 11-0 in six to end their regular season at 26-6, 13-1. A young MF Lady Mustang team still was no match for DS as wild pitches and errors helped escalate their problems. After two scoreless innings DS solved the problem in the third as they stroked four hits that netted four runs and got them on their way. Two walks added two more in the fourth. Two more hits and a walk pushed in two more in the fifth and then wild pitches and errors allowed three more runs in the sixth. Meanwhile Kiele Miller pitched five innings giving up one hit and struck out 9 and walked one. Paige Leschber closed out the sixth striking out two of the three she faced. They will now face Austin LBJ in Bi-district action.

Final district standings: DS 13-1, Lockhart 10-4, Medina Valley 10-4, Seguin 9-5, Marble Falls 6-8, Kerrville 3-11, Alamo Heights 2-12, Boerne Champion 1-13.

Tiger Baseball in playoffs

 

The suspense is over for the Tigers as their two wins over Alamo Heights and Medina Valley put them in the playoffs. Kerrville clinched the title with one game to be played.

It matters little how many hits a team gets but matters a lot when you get them. AH outhit the Tigers 10-6 but the Tigers were able to combine seven walks, a couple of errors and four extra base hits to pull away to the 9-0 win that solidified a hold on a playoff berth.

Tiger Golf on steady climb

 

It has been a steady climb for the golf teams under the tutelage of Coach Jason Wahlers, especially in the girls division. For many years it was a struggle for the Lady Tigers to have enough players to qualify for team honors and then when that began happening, they were having to compete with state-champion programs and could not get out of district. The same problem has been dogging the Tigers team as well. The change in districts did not eliminate that problem, especially in the boys division. However, both teams have a bright future with only Lady Tiger Lindsay Koppel graduating this year.

The district tourney was held recently and the Lady Tigers won the first district title since 1987 (see nearby story) and will be advancing to regional with a good chance of making it to the state tourney later on. Koppel, who holds every individual scoring record at DS, as well as being a member of the team records, led this charge as well.

It is a matter of running out the string before the Lady Tigers begin their quest of reaching the state tourney.

Tiger Baseball in middle for district

 

A split in the action during the week left the Tigers baseball team still mired in the middle of a very close district race with three games remaining. Lockhart would fall 5-1 but the Tigers would be shutout 3-0 by Boerne Champion. Strong pitching highlighted each game but the ability to come up with runs proved the problem for teams. District standings: Kerrville 9-2, Boerne Champion 8-3, Alamo Heights 8-3, DS 7-4, Medina Valley 6-5, Marble Falls 4-7, Seguin 3-8, Lockhart 0-11.

Tiger Baseball in title chase

 

The Dripping Springs Tigers baseball team won a couple of games the past week to put themselves right in the title chase as all the contenders are coming back to the pack. Kerrville put the first defeat on Kerrville Tivy, 6-4, and then went wild in the 17-0 whitewashing of Seguin. The Tigers are now within one game of the lead. Standings: Kerrville 7-2, DS 6-3, Alamo Heights 6-3, Boerne Champion 6-3, Medina Valley 5-4, Marble Falls 3-6, Seguin 3-6, Lockhart 0-9.

In any sport where scores are important, it does not matter how or when, just as long as the results are in your favor. Such was the case in the Tigers battle with previously unbeaten Kerrville Tivy. The Tigers had been one of those victims in their first meeting and they needed a win to get back in the race. Tivy had their ace on the mound but even aces have their off-nights. Despite his control problems he had still no-hit the Tigers through three and a 1-0 lead.

Lady Tigers in softball district race

 

They were not the sharpest of games played but they were wins that put the Lady Tigers out of reach in the district race. Sometimes you hit the mid-season blahs and other times one plays down to their opponents. The wins against Lockhart and Boerne Champion were riddled with poor defensive efforts by the opponents. Lockhart fell 13-2 and BC 15-8. The Lady Tigers are 23-6.

District standings: DS 10-1, Lockhart 8-3, Medina Valley 8-3, Seguin 6-5, Marble Falls 6-5, Alamo Heights 2-9, Kerrville 2-9, Boerne Champion 1-10.

It was not much of a showdown when the Lady Tigers took on the Lockhart Lady Lions. Lockhart was the second place team at the time. They did not look like it as the Lady Tigers found the pitcher to their liking, pounding out 13 hits and being aided by seven Lockhart errors. Meanwhile, Kiele Miller was shutting down the Lady Lions with the help of a strong defense. DS scored in all four innings they batted. It was 2-2-7-3 for their total.
