GPHS Baseball Start Off Strong Against Fort Bend
The Yellowjackets started off strong scoring on a single by Kasen Handal, a double by Jeremy Valdez, and a groundout in the first inning. Six more runs were scored in the third after a home run by Mauricio Martinez, a single by William Hernandez, a single by Cipirano Ayala, and a single by Sergio Rodriguez. Galena Park finished off Willowridge 13-1. Carlos Calvillo earned the win for the Jackets throwing five innings, allowing one run, three hits, striking out 12, and walking zero. The Yellowjackets collected 13 hits led by Carlos Calvillo and Kasen Handal who each collected multiple hits while Jeremy Valdez went 1-for-1 at the plate and led the team with three runs batted in.
The Lady Jackets made quick work of Willowridge in both the varsity and junior varsity contests played Friday, March 24th. Due to weather concerns the varsity played first. Junior Bailey Richey threw three innings allowing no runs and striking out six. The home team plated 20 runs on eight hits. Willowridge was in trouble from the beginning. Senior Izairiz Vazquez led off with a triple. Senior Alexis Valdez scored on an in the park homerun later the same inning and junior Ashley Colunga launched a two run blast over the centerfield fence two batters after that. Richey helped herself taking advantage of an overthrow to touch them all after hitting a triple. 15 runs were scored in the first inning of play on seven hits. Senior Angelica Rodriguez joined the fun with a grand slam in the second. As overmatched as they were, Willowridge played hard and displayed enormous character. It was Galena Park’s desire to play in the most sportsmanlike manner possible and they did not intentionally run up the score. Pitches to hit were simply thrown with runners on base. After allowing everyone to bat the Jackets gave themselves up in respect for the Willowridge player’s courage and effort.

When the Lady Mustang Basketball program took on the 2016-2017 season, we knew it would be filled with achievements and success. But as the 2nd half of District games come around, Chasity Patterson continues to impress with her personal success that looks to give the entire team into the post season. On Tuesday night, Patterson recorded her 3,000 career point as a NS Lady Mustang! The future Texas Longhorn was also named to the McDonald's All American roster last week (ONLY 24 total seniors in the nation). The NS Lady Mustangs take on Kingwood this Friday, Jan. 27th @ K.H.S. Come out and support!
