The Marlins are idle this week, waiting to hear the results of a game Friday, May 6, between the Charlotte Trojans and the Mason Cowboys. That game, to be played in Bandera, will determine which team the Marlins will meet in the area playoffs.
Charlotte, a 1A school southwest of Pleasanton, was the runner-up in District 30 baseball behind D’Hanis. Mason, third-place team in District 29 after Johnson City and Eldorado, is northwest of Fredericksburg.
Area playoffs are scheduled for Saturday, May 14, but the University Interscholastic League (UIL) hadn’t announced a site for the Port Aransas area game as of Monday, May 2.
The Marlins, with a 24-3 record, drew a bye in the bidistrict playoffs because of their undisputed first-place finish in District 31-A.
The next step after t he area playoffs is the regional quarter-final level. The UIL has set regional quarter-final playoffs for Saturday, May 21; the regional semi-final games will be Saturday, May 28.
