The Yellowjacket softball program hosted a JV tournament which began with pool play Thursday, February 26th. The Thursday afternoon games matched GP against Channelview High School and Sam Rayburn High School.
The GP varsity girls were still flying high from their district opening win against Kingwood Park when they took the field for the third game of the Stafford Tournament on Saturday 2/28. Royal High School from the Brookshire area was their unfortunate victim. Although they played with tremendous heart, Royal was no match for the Lady Yellowjackets. The mercy rule was reached after three and one half innings. The score was 18 to 0. Sophomore Alexis Valdez reached a personal milestone with her first career homerun, as did freshman Bailey Richey with her first grand slam. Bailey Richey got the win recording six strike outs.
Our varsity team was no doubt the underdog when facing District 21-AAAAA powerhouse Kingwood Park. Fortunately, the GP ladies seemed unaware of this mismatch! In what may well be the best softball game seen at Galena Park in the last ten years, the Lady Jackets played with fearless confidence knocking off K. Park in a 3 to 2 victory.
Both the JV boys and girls teams left Goose Creek Memorial with a 2nd place finish last Thursday evening. Once again the wind and the cold made for a miserable night, but neither of those seemed to slow down our Yellowjackets. As always the meet began with the throwers and jumpers and Galena Park did well.
