Cowgirls win twice by run-rule
The first games in awhile for the D’Hanis Cowgirl softball team resulted in a pair of big wins Friday, March 24, and Tuesday, March 28.
The Cowgirls dominated San Antonio Cole at home on Friday, 17-2, then in a change to the schedule, D’Hanis played its District 30-A opener on Tuesday, beating Leakey in Kerrville, 19-4.
A couple of games in the previous week had been canceled because of a scheduling conflict and a rainout.
Tuesday’s game with Leakey had been set to be played in Kerrville on April 18, but was moved ahead on the schedule.
The Cowgirls (4-5-1 season, 1-0 district) were supposed to play Leakey on Friday, but that is one of several games on the schedule that have been shuffled around.
There will be no game this Friday, March 31. The Tuesday, April 18 date will now be a home district doubleheader against Knippa, and on Friday, April 21, Leakey will pay its return visit to D’Hanis.
They’ll go back to non-district play next Thursday, April 6, with a 5 p.m. home game against San Antonio FEAST.
In the win over Cole, several Cowgirls had multi-hit games. Mabry Herrmann was 4-for-4 with four runs batted in, with Alysha Garcia and Jessa Frosch both going 3-for-4, with two and three RBI. Kayla Looper, Peyton Burell, Brighton Beard and Jolie Frosch all had two hits, with Frosch driving in two.
Facing Leakey, Herrmann was 4-for-4 for the second straight game, this time with a homer and three doubles, and driving in five. Looper was 3-for-3 with a homer, two doubles and four RBI. Burell and Jolie Frosch both had two hits.
In the circle, Burell got the win against Cole, and Looper recorded the ‘W’ against Leakey. Both games ended quickly when D’Hanis built a 15-run lead.
