The mighty C.C. Winn Lady Mavericks varsity girls’ softball team under the tutelage of head coach J.J. Iracheta, Jr., and assistant coaches Tony Martinez, Johnny Hernandez, Corina Benavidez and Roly Salinas who finished tied for second place in District 29-5A with an identical; district mark of 7-3 the same as Uvalde but drew the #3 seed ventured to Jourdanton, Texas on Friday, April 27, 2018.

The Lady Mavercks opened their best of three series for the UIL Region IV Class 5A Bi-District softball crown by tangling against the Corpus Christi Carroll Lady Tigers who were the District 30-5A runner-up champs with a 7:00 PM series opener. The red hot Lady Mavericks ventured into the post season for the fifth consecutive year and their eighth time overall in their 12 year history of the program and set an all-time best season record of 23 wins with 10 losses.

The predominately youthful Lady Mavericks ventured into this bi-district series spearheaded by their quartet of power hitters the likes of Daniela Rodriguez, the Soto twins Ariana and Briana as well as Martha Garcia all four of which not only bring power to the plate but also hit for a high batting average and are very clutch hitters with runners in scoring position. Also expected to contribute at the plate will be Jasmin Ballones, Kayla Sifuentes, Anissa Salazar, Ana Lopez, and Thiana Reyes. The Lady Mavericks’ pitching staff of starting hurlers Angie Escamilla and Amy Flores along with young reliever Alexia Gutierrez will be expected to dominate in the circle in this series. The Lady Mavericks defense which has been solid at all positions will be a big factor in this series as well as the famed Mavericks Nation who come out early rain or shine to truly support their beloved Lady Mavericks varsity softball team. The proud Lady Mavericks were eliminated in two straight by the final scored of 5 to 0 and 9 to 4 but did not go down without a truly gallant fight.


The Corpus Christi Carroll Lady Tigers dented the score board first with a three run output in the bottom of the second inning on a pair of base hits and a Lady Mavericks throwing error, In the bottom of the fourth the Lady Tigers padded their lead with a pair of runs to take a 5 to 0 lead over the Lady Mavericks on a base on balls, a sacrifice, an RBI base hit, and a two out fielding error and that would prove to be than enough in this series opener as the Lady Tigers starting and eventual game winning hurler allowed only two hits in this game one each by Ana Lopez and Jasmin Ballones as she followed the scouting report by pitching around the Lady Mavericks power hitters all game long as the Lady Tigers took game 1 of the best of three series by the final score of 5 to0 with Angie Escamilla taking the pitching loss with four complete innings of work allowing three runs with relief help from young Alexia Gutierrez who tossed two complete innings in relief allowing a pair of runs.

The second game of the best of three series kicked-off at 1:00 PM with the Lady Tigers taking the early lead with a pair of runs in the bottom of the first off of young Lady Mavericks starting pitcher Alexia Gutierrez but the proud Lady Mavericks supported by the famed Mavericks Nation in attendance answered back in the bottom of the first with a pair of runs of their own to knot up the scoreboard with Daniela Rodriguez leading off the frame with a walk, with one out power hitting first baseman Ariana Soto stepped up to the plate and blast a booming rocker shot over the left field fence for a game tying two run home run much to the delight of the Mavericks Nation who came to cheer their hearts out for their beloved Lady Mavericks.

The Lady Tigers broke up the two all tie with a lone run in the top of the third to take a 3 to 2 lead in this game. But once again with the heart of a true champions the mighty Lady Mavericks answered in the home half of the third with a pair of runs to take a 4 to 3 lead over the Lady Tigers with Daniela Rodriguez drawing a one out walk, with two outs heavy hitting Ariana Soto came to the plate and low and behold she blasted her second two run home run in as many appearances at the plate a shot way over the left field fence but unfortunately that would eventually prove to be the final damage they would produce in this game.

The Lady Tigers would go on to tack on six unanswered runs to come away with the 9 to 4 victory thus ending a record setting season for the C.C. Winn Lady Mavericks who wind up with an all-time season best overall record of 23 wins with 12 losses.
