Both the Boys and Girls Track and Field programs have had some obstacles to get through during the first half of the season. Weather played a HUGE part in keeping us tamed. But things are starting to clear up outside and our kids are getting faster and stronger at the right time! Traveling to Gator Relays in Dickinson, TX saw the Lady Mustangs finish 4th as a team out of 16 schools and the Boys take another 1st place finish.

GPHS Softball Team Closes Out First Round District Play
The Lady Yellowjackets closed out the first round of district play with a 7 to 2 victory over the Lady Spartans. Sophomore Iriz Vasquez once again took the circle for GP and successfully contained the Porter batters with the help of a stellar defense. Iriz set the tone early and earned the infamous scorekeeper’s gold star with her outstanding run saving snag off a line drive. Jazmine Castillo’s game ending running catch in centerfield also inspired scorekeeper to add a superlative to the scorebook.
GPHS Baseball Team Gets The Bats Swinging
Galena Park finally executed some timely hitting and found some solid defense leading them to their first district win against Porter. It was a tight game that went to the wire, but the Jackets pulled off the 3-2 victory. Ryan Gonzalez pitched a strong 5 innings giving up 1 earned run with 1 strike-out. Jaime Vazquez came in relief and recorded the save with 3 strike-outs. Defensively we recorded 21 put outs in 24 opportunities. Offensively, Jaime Vazquez, Joshua Perez, and Will Hernandez all had a single. Santos Torres had an RBI double.
GPHS Track Team Endures Soggy Weather
After a soggy week in Houston, the sun broke through the clouds and the varsity track athletes of Galena Park were able to compete at the C.E. King Track Meet. The early wet weather did prevent the long and high jumps from being safe so the meet began with the throwers and the high jumpers where GP experienced early success.
