Tiger Baseball wins five games

 

The new Tiger baseball field got indoctrinated in a myriad of ways as Dripping Springs hosted an 11-team tourney in conjunction with Pflugerville Hendrickson. Thanks to the all-weather field, the tourney was able to be completed on the Saturday as it was a soggy, misty day for all the games but the teams persevered. The Tigers had a great tourney as they won all five games they played. Spring break was also good to the Tigers as they made short-work of district opponents Seguin (7-1) and Lockhart (11-1) behind strong pitching. They have an 11-5-1 record.

Their first game was with Austin Akins. After Akins completed their at bat in the top of the fifth, lightning strikes halted action and finally ended the game with the Tigers leading and winning 2-0. Reese Johnson led off bottom of first with a single and eventually scored on a passed ball. In the second Marcos Pressley singled and scored in a rundown before the third out was made.

Tiger baseball embark on new season

 

The Tigers baseball team embarked on their new season in the Georgetown tourney. They came away with a 2-3 record. All UIL teams will be facing a new rule this year that will cause more planning by the managers when it comes to their pitchers. There has long been discussions about the overuse of pitchers and arm injuries. This year the UIL decided to do something about it with pitch limits and those pitches must be counted by an outside source. Days of rest between stints are determined by the number of pitches. 0-30 (0 Days); 31-45 (1); 46-65 (2); 66-85 (3); 86-110 (4).

Lady Tigers Softball open district play

 

The Lady Tigers opened district play with Kerrville and then headed off to the Sienna Plantation tourney before returning to district play for the rest of the season. DS ended up 3-3 at the tourney.

Wow!! What a start for the Lady Tigers in district play. After an undefeated DS tourney run, they never skipped a beat. Or at least we can say that Kiele Miller did not. She became the present day King and his Court in performance. That was a four-man team that took on all comers fifty years ago. All she did was strikeout 19 batters, caught a fly and hit a two-run homerun in the no-hit, 7-0 win over Kerrville. Her perfect game was ruined immediately when she walked the leadoff batter and a fourth inning error put the only other runner on base.

Lady Tiger Softball develop depth at A&M tourney

 

With a team loaded to the hilt for the upcoming run at a state championship, the Lady Tigers jumped into the fray with a very tough set of opponents in the College Station-A&M Consolidated tourney. They played six very good teams from around the state that allowed them to be in positions that will be advantageous to them as they make their run later in the year. These games also allowed them to develop depth from a team that returned every starter from last year's team and fourteen of fifteen squad members. They would finish 4-2 in the tourney.

Tigers boys basketball has close game

 

After making the playoffs, it would have been easy to not worry that much about the final district game with second place Seguin. This was not the case for the Tigers as they did play all the players and get results from them. They were able to scratch and claw their way to a 56-54 win to give them a 21-13 record and 9-5 in district. Close games have been a way of life for the Tigers. They trailed 14-13 after one and the Matadors moved that up to 30-27 at the half. Each scored 13 in the third but the Tigers would pull ahead in the final stanza to eke out the win. Last Tuesday they played Austin Reagan at Hays HS and a win there will put the Tigers into Area play on Friday or Saturday. You will need to check with the school website for the details.
