Galena Park took the field against a Vidor team who was making their third consecutive trip into playoff territory while the Lady Jackets fielded a team with zero playoff experience. The inexperience accounted for Galena Park’s shaky start, but as demonstrated throughout the regular season these scrappy girls pulled it together to make it a game. The Lady Pirates defeated the Jackets by a score of 6 -2, but left the field knowing the Yellowjackets were worthy opponents. Galena Park’s senior first baseman Alycia Cavazos went out in style, driving in freshman standout Ariana Saenz with a two run homer. Alycia ends her high school career as the team’s RBI leader in district and in postseason play. Alycia hit homeruns in the last two games of GP’s season and has nicely padded both her batting average and slugging percentage to make her senior year something to be remembered! She will be hard to replace in 2016. Fortunately the remaining starters from this year’s campaign are set to return. Sophomore Breanna Garza, who was unable to play this season while she rehabbed a torn ACL, will be available to add her speed and solid defense to next year’s efforts. Although GP will not have many holes to fill quality players are ready and waiting in our junior varsity program. This was something of a Cinderella year for GP so although the playoff run was short it was satisfying. Coaches Rodriguez, Richey and Vela greatly appreciated everyone who supported the team and are very proud of their team.
The Galena Park varsity team lost a hard fought battle to the Eagles Tuesday night. The game was a battle for the entire 9 innings as Barbers Hill scored the winning run to take the game 3 to 2 in the 9th inning. Ryan Gonzalez was attributed the loss but only after he pitched 8.1 innings throwing 124 pitches, 77 strikes, and 4 strike-outs. The defense stood solid behind Gonzalez with no errors, 15 put-outs in 25 opportunities, 16 assists and 1 double play. Offensively, GP left several opportunities on the field. GP had 2 runs off 6 hits but left 7 on base. Joshua Perez was 2-4 from the plate with both hits being singles and he scored 1 run. Jaime Vazquez was 1-4 with a single. James Richey went 1-3 with a single and a RBI. Evan Rosilez also hit a single going 1-4 from the plate. Anthony Munoz also hit a single and scored a run going 1-3 from the plate.
NORTH SHORE TENNIS UPDATE
Valentina Roldan, North Shore’s Regional Qualifier and #2 girl in District 21-6A, took the court on April 21 against a strong competitor from Lamar HS. Despite a game win early in the first set, Valentina was not able to keep the momentum, and lost her match in the round of sixteen. We are proud of Vale’s trip to Regionals, and of her winning season!

Expect Deer Park HS and Baytown Sterling to play their very best tennis this time of year, but for the NS tennis team, grit and determination led the Mustangs to some strong finishes. J. Gallardo and Doubles team (C. Rendon and K. Trevino) advances to the Quarterfinals round but each fell just short. Number 2 seed, V. Roldan, had plans of pulling off the upset but finishing 2nd did allow her to become a regional qualifier and see her season continue on April 21st @ Deer Park! Congratulations and Best of Luck!!!!

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.
