2013-2014 Softball

Postby WindthorstDad » Wed Aug 14, 2013 10:46 am

I know it's a bit early to be thinking of softball when Football and Volleyball are in full swing, however, softball has always been one of my favorite sports to watch. I can see Windthorst possibly starting three sophomores and also expect three Freshman to either start or get maximum playing time this season.

I was curious how many young players will be making an impact on your varsity teams this season?

Our district consists of: Windthorst, Olney, Archer City, Perrin-Whitt, Graford and Bryson. I predict Windthorst will win district and Archer City will be second. Third place is a toss-up. Hitting has normally been a strong point for Windthorst, but I see pitching coming forward as we will have five capable pitchers including two Freshman this season. Hoping these girls return Windthorst to the state tournament for several seasons to come.

It starts in the circle....the team with the consistent pitching and defense will have a great shot...you look at the last three state champions and all had one solid pitcher, with movement and not a lot of velocity, but great control and solid D. And the last three champs are all in the same district in Region 4. You have to play a little small ball as well and defend it as well.

I totally agree with you lynx. All out pitchers throw low to mid 50's with one Freshman that has four solid movement pitches and a nice change-up. We also will have two speedy left-handed slappers at the top of the lineup. That is a first for Windthorst.

Weimar is region IV. They bring everyone back except their middle infielders. Albany was the state tournament representative from our Region and lose 5 seniors including their studdette SS Kelli Schkade, who signed with Mizzou.

That is what I thought. Our softball team will be talented and deep and I believe they will be disappointed if they do not represent our region at state the next several years.

Weimar lost middle inf, but a talented few freshmen will step in probably. Shiner lost one, but has a talented group of freshmen that is supposed to step in nicely...Flatonia should be good even without the Williams girl..You have to go thru Region 4 w to win it all. Class 1A will be very competitive in all regions, but it starts in the circle my friends!

You are so right lynx. I love hearing about how good an offense a team has, how fast they are on the bases or solid on defense. However, if you pitcher can not throw strikes, then you're doomed. Preventing walks is paramount in softball with the bases only 60 feet a part!

I also agree that I love softball! It will be bittersweet though this year because my daughter is a senior. She has started in the outfield since she was a freshmen. I'm just hoping we could be good enough this year to make the playoffs. Last time we did was my daughter's freshmen year. We have a new coach this year and he seems to be pretty softball savy so we will see. I'll enjoy the other seasons first though this year since its the last go around! Plus I'm not in a hurry to pay for college. Lol

LOL...I just moved my oldest daughter back to Lubbock for her Junior year at Texas Tech. Seems like every trip to Lubbock cost me $400 or more. ;)

My youngest daughter is a freshman this year and will be one of the Trojannette pitchers. She also is also one of two slappers on the team which is a first for Windthorst, so it should be interesting having the small-ball option when our coach needs it.

Good luck in your daughter's senior year and we hope to see you in the playoffs.

Yes, she has been going to Glen Taylor for five years. He's a great hitting coach and teaches not only hitting but how to play the game. She loves Glen.

I will do that! August is the only month we take off hitting, so we start back in September and I will share this with him. Ginger stops by the hitting barn with her kids sometimes and Glen has let my girls watch the Big 12 Championship Game (2000 I believe) where Ginger had her last collegiate hit before graduating. Good people.

Hey lynx! Told 'ol Glen that JWB says hello and he laughed and asked where did I run into John. Told me ya'll had some great basketball teams as well as softball together. Would have loved to have seen that group of kids. Sounds like they were a great bunch.

Hitting lessons went great and we go back for private "scenario" or read-the-defense training on Sunday. Glen is doing a great job with her. My daughter can't wait for Friday, January 19, 2014 (First UIL allowed softball practice date).

Man I'm sure ready for softball! Not much of a basketball fan and softball is my favorite girls sport to watch! Might have a delayed start to softball though because our basketball team is looking pretty good. Oh Windthorstdad my daughter has enlisted in the Navy so no college expenses now. Excited for her because she chose this route but definitely a little nervous for her. Gonna enjoy what's left of her senior year!

Iola Fan - congrats to your daughter on choosing to serve our nation. Wish her luck this year in softball and in her military career. We've been hitting with Glen Taylor, pitching and attended OU hitting camp. Getting geared up for a successful season. Good luck to Iola in their region.

Windthorst Fan - the indoor practice facility was completed Friday and is now ready for use. Plan to be there Wednesday night if schedule allows.

Windthorst built indoor batting cages for softball/baseball team. Not sure what else the facility houses. Half of our kids are involved in the softball/baseball programs as both programs have at least 40 kids participating so at least 80 kids and we have 160+ adm

Her job in the Navy will be Logistics specialist which is supply and mail from the job description she was givin. Yes hopefully we will be able to make the playoffs this year but we will see! Haven't been to the playoffs since her freshmen year but I think we have the talent and we got a new coach this year.

Her Navy career will easily translate to the job market when she leaves the military; good choice by her.

As for Glen; he built the best indoor hitting facility I've ever seen. Total dirt infield, located 4 feet below the main area so parents, coaches, etc. can easily observe the hitters, from indoor bleachers, as he takes them through their sessions. The dirt infield provides true feedback to the hitter (unlike turf) and having the correct infield dimensions allow further feed back as to where the ball actually lands (flies). Standard facilities with narrow net hitting lanes do not provide this valuable feedback.

Our new indoor facility for Windthorst High School is a standard net, turf hitting facility. It was built and paid for by a local Windthorst man (he loves softball) so we are very fortunate to have it available to us and we thank him for supporting our programs.

How many girls are still in basketball? About 1/2 the team, 2/3 of the team? It will hopefully be at least another month and a half before the entire team practices together.

You're correct and it's that way every year we send the basketball team deep into the playoffs. We currently have six softball starters on the varsity basketball team. We also have 2 of our 4 pitchers playing on varsity but I am fairly sure they are getting their pitching work in on their own.

Our first game is 2/18 vs Holiday and first tournament is in Burk 2/20-22. That would be the same time as the Area round of basketball playoffs so we will have younger players fill in at softball that week.

Next softball tournament is same weekend as state basketball. Not sure if we will make state in basketball but we can always hope!

Should be a blast! I see Windthorst and AC as top two in District 8 with Olney/Perrin-Whitt fighting it out for the final playoff spot.

My early prediction is the survivor of Windthorst, Archer City, Petrolia & Albany will represent Region 1 in the state playoffs.

District 8
Windthorst, Archer City, Olney, Perrin-Whitt, Bryson, Graford

Good question. It was 3.12 as a 12-year old last time her select coaches timed her. Two years later, she has grown and is quite a bit stronger so I'll have to time her and see where she's at. Not sure but I guess at Class 1A, that 2.8 seconds or less would be pretty good.

Appreciate the reminder. :-)

I agree with you Wildaggie. It's basically based on last season's finish and not who is returning starting pitching and hitting.

Example: Albany lost their pitcher and their backups were unimpressive. Their best returning player injured her knee and may miss the entire softball season. Petrolia returns their top pitcher but graduated their best hitters.

The top two teams in the poll graduated their best pitchers and some good hitters but should still return strong (Region IV typically reloads and returns strong teams). I do not know anything on Beckville, Junction or Hubbard. Never count Shiner out. Albany was the Region I representative but I do not look for them repeat.

As mentioned previously, our Region I should be represented by the survivor of: Petrolia, Archer City or Windthorst. All have good pitching and Archer City and Windthorst should have decent hitting as well.

Like the pre-season poll, my picks are guesses and should be taken with a grain of salt. Injuries, surprise Freshman or move-ins can always make the difference.

Good luck to all Softball ladies this year. Looking forward to a very competitive season.

Weimar's pitcher is still there. She is a senior this year.
