The Eagle Pass Lady Eagles varsity softball team hit the road on Thursday, February 21, 2019 with a trip to San Antonio, Texas to participate in the three day Southwest ISD Invitational Softball Tournament where they faced some high caliber teams which will greatly be very beneficial to prepare themselves for the upcoming District 29-6A diamond battles.

The Lady Eagles played the entire tournament without the services of their standout starting power hitting catcher Brooke Diaz who sat out the entire tournament with an undisclosed injury. The Lady Eagles placed 3rd at this tournament winning four out of the six games they played. Eagle Pass Lady Eagles ace pitcher Kaitlin Galvan who had a phenomenal 1.09 E.R.A .during this tourney and Lady Eagles’ third baseman Alexandra Martinez were selected to the elite all-tournament team.

GAME 1

Paced by a 10 hit attack and the brilliant pitching of Kaitlin Galvan who hurled a complete five inning no-hitter and if not for an early error would have hurled a perfect game as she allowed just that one batter to reach base courtesy of that error but managed to retire the side in order in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th innings to earn the 8 to 0 victory in this tournament opener over the San Antonio Edison Lady Golden Bears. Leslie Martinez, Kaitlin Galvan and Alex Martinez each collected two base hits apiece in this game.
