Weather shortens JV game with Benavides
Weather curtailed softball activity at home against Benavides on Friday, March 9, but the junior varsity Lady Marlins managed to get in two innings and recorded a 10-7 win in their first district contest of the season.
“The structure of the game ( by the UIL) is that each team can only score five runs or three outs per half inning,” coach Steve Reaves explained. “This is to keep the game going. We … maxed out on runs both innings.”
Sadie Guillot took the mound; coaches say she is “getting more comfortable (as a pitcher) with every inning.” Shelby Flores, behind the plate, also drew coaches’ praise.
While both teams were neck and neck at the end of the first inning, the Lady Marlins held Benavides to two runs in the second, wrapping up the game.
