Agree with #1 and #2. Both teams can hit and run bases. I say it will come down to pitching and fielding errors.

You might be right. Snyder, TX forecast is 50% change of rain Friday but none on Saturday.

If it rains all week what kind of shape will fields be in come Saturday, could they even get them in playing condition? Back in my younger days I helped out during the summer with a local Connie Mack baseball team. They were hosting the state tournament to get to the National Tournament so the games had to be played. A little gasoline was used to burn the moisture out of the ground around home plate!!!

I haven't heard of that method before. We've always just added dirt/sand and raked all day to get them in shape. The four fields we used in Snyder last year were all dirt (no turf) so not sure how well they drain. Hope it's not a wasted trip (3 hours).

Windthorst Trojanettes suffered their first losses of the season but played competitively with very good large school competition at the tough Snyder Invitational Softball tournament this weekend. They did not give up a run their first four games and in the Gold bracket lost by 1 run to very good larger schools. Trojanettes are looking strong going into district play tomorrow.

Well, due to rain, looks like Windthorst will take their 14-2 (1-0 district) record on the road Monday to Petrolia at 7:30 PM. Should be a fun game with both teams having good pitching. Hope the fields dry out and the temps go up.

Harleton has all-state pitcher Randi Carroll Phillips who led Harleton to the state championship her Freshman year and a runner-up finish to Shiner last year. She is now a junior and Harleton's #2 Pre-season ranking is well deserved.

I know the teams are different for Softball/baseball but you would think they could have looked to see if same teams were playing and made them both at the same location. Baseball plays at home against Petrolia.

Agreed. I believe Windthorst JV is now playing Knox City @5:00 PM in Windthorst (today). The Varsity game vs Petrolia is a rescheduled game from Friday's rain-out.

Baseball Friday was suppose to be Petrolia @ Windthorst just saying you have thought softball Friday would have been played at Windthorst instead of the two fan bases split between Petrolia and Windthorst. Granted there are 8 teams playing softball and only 6 playing baseball so the second match-up probably wouldn't have lined up anyway.

Agreed windthorstdad...Harleton is very good, probably should be # 1 right now. Beating Burkburnett is no big deal this year, very avg team and avg. pitching.Harleton has to deal with Beckville in their region. Region 4 teams won't have the best records because they play 3-6A schools all the time and see very tough pitching. You have to play good defense and play some small ball to win it all. It will be fun to see how it plays out.

I think most "contenders" schedule 3A-6A schools for the very reason of seeing playoff caliber pitching and to mentally toughen their teams. Our baseball team, under our previous coach, won a lot of games playing a powder puff schedule, but to beat those really good teams that have a "program" you better see some decent pitching and learn how to scrape out some runs.

An awesome effort by Jenna Glawe led Windthorst Trojanettes Varsity to a 23-5 win in six innings over Petrolia on Monday night.

Glawe racked up six RBIs on five hits for Windthorst Trojanettes Varsity. She homered in the first and fourth innings, doubled in the third and sixth innings, and singled in the sixth inning.

Thirteen runs in the first three innings helped Windthorst Trojanettes Varsity blow out Petrolia. An RBI single by Tatum Veitenheimer, a two-run home run by Glawe, an RBI single by Katie Conrady, an RBI single by Cy Schroeder, and an error in the first inning supplied the early offense for Windthorst Trojanettes Varsity.

Windthorst Trojanettes Varsity hit three home runs in the win. Additional home runs for Windthorst Trojanettes Varsity came when Emily Schroeder homered in the third inning and Glawe homered in the first and fourth innings.

Even though Schroeder allowed five runs over six innings she still recorded the victory. She struck out nine, walked none and surrendered five hits.

Windthorst Trojanettes Varsity easily handled Petrolia pitching as six hitters combined for 15 hits, 15 RBIs and 17 runs scored and Petrolia committed 9 errors.

The Trojanettes meet up with Quanah tonight. Then the "barn burner" at Archer City on Friday night will decide the early lead in our district. This one promises to be very exciting.

Just out of curiosity how many is too many pitches in softball? Seldom do you see a baseball pitcher go over 100 pitches in a baseball game, I noticed on game changer Petrolia's pitcher threw 162 pitches.

There really is no true pitch count limit other than when your pitcher tires. The reason being that the softball pitching motion (windmill) is actually the way your arm joints are designed to move, unlike baseball, so there is much less wear and tear from a non-natural motion. That is why you see many softball teams, at all levels, using only one pitcher for most of a season. It's typical to use multiple pitchers in softball due to change of pace (one throws N/S riseball, dropball while the other throws E/W screwball, curveball) to throw an opposing team off.

Windthorst blanks Quanah 14-0

Fifteen batters couldn't locate Brooklyn King as King threw a no-hitter on Tuesday, in Windthorst Trojanettes Varsity's 14-0 victory over Quanah. King threw a no-hitter, striking out seven batters and walking one .

Windthorst Trojanettes Varsity easily handled Quanah pitching as six hitters combined for 12 hits, 11 RBIs and 14 runs scored.

Big game will be Friday when Windthorst travels to Archer City. Guaranteed to be a competitive game!

Welcome PaulR and yes we can use all the company we can get. Looks New Deal has Crosbyton on the radar Friday; good luck to your daughter and her team. Is Ralls the "top dog" in softball in your district?

It is hard to tell, Ralls is gaining momentum. Lockney beat Ralls and Abernathy and we beat Lockney Tuesday and barely lost to Abernathy. We were 3-1 in the 4th vs Ralls and they hit two over the fence and ended it on the 10 run rule in the 5th. (Their pitcher beat us, the kids weren't ready. They had no preseason. The girls jumped straight into district with two weeks practice.
New Deal reconstructed their team with a all new coaching staff. And they are improving in leaps and bounds. I don't know if we can catch Ralls this year but their is a decent chance for a 3 way tie for 2nd.

Sounds like your district 2 will go down to the wire and that always makes it fun when you're still in the hunt at the end.
You guys are also in our region. I know that area well as my oldest daughter graduated from Texas Tech last year and still lives in Lubbock. Windthorst in the past had playoff games against Ralls and Lockney; maybe we'll see you guys down the road this year depending on how the playoff brackets get laid out. Good luck!

*** BARN-BURNER in ARCHER COUNTY TODAY! ***
Archer City will be packed today! Many schools are off today and area folks plus the AC and Windthorst faithful will be at WildCat field to watch the #4 Windthorst Trojanettes visit the #5 Archer City LadyCats in a huge district softball match. Area papers and TV stations will be onsite and as usual this promises to be a good one. AC has lefty Eliott Hilbers on the mound and she has a strong defense behind her and good hitting. Windthorst has a 1-2 combo of Cy Schroeder and Brooklyn King on the mound and both have different styles to throw off the opposing hitters. Windthorst defense has been strong but hitting has been stronger with five different Trojanettes hitting home runs already this season. Trojanettes are always aggressive on the base paths so it should be a great match vs AC strong defense. Coaches will have to make the right calls to insure their team has it's best shot at coming out on top. If you're free at 2:00 PM today; come watch what may be the best 2A games this week.

Seen this rivalry go both ways blow outs, tight games, spit the series last 2 yrs always fun. Windy loaded w srs which is always nice and will hit the ball. Archer counters w cpl srs and a soph rest are jrs. Been streaky at the hitting as well as defense. Shld be fun to watch. Proud of both archer county teams for representing . Come down to mistakes and best defense I see both putting it in play.

Ac made the mistakes and windy took advantage

1st one goes to windy

6-2

Bothe pitchers pitched well enough. Windys bats little better today and found the holes. We can't allow extended innings I have no less than 4 runs scored after we didn't execute defensively aka drop balls, not in position, run downs etc especially against a good team like windy

High possibility these 2 teams cld play 5 times this yr. I can see it happening. 2 in district and possible best of 5 for all the marbles to see who goes to the tourney

Actually, Windthorst only starts seniors at LF, 1B and 2B. Bringing back a ton of talent including pitcher and catcher. I see this continuing into next season as a top match-up.

#4 Windthorst beat #5 Archer City 6-2 at Archer City Friday. This game turned out to be a good one again. Don't like that we left bases loaded in the first inning and runners on second and third in the next inning but give the Lady Cats their due as they worked out of the jams. Both pitchers did a good job keeping the other team off balance for most of the game. Other than Audry Lopez for Ac and Tatum Veitenhimer for Windthorst, the top of each lineup was quiet. As AC coach said in the paper; "their bottom part of the lineup outplayed our bottom part of the lineup and that is where Windthorst had most of their hits and RBIs. There were a few misplayed balls by both teams but for the most part it was well played by both. I expect the next game on 4/19 to be just as exciting and as always, the fans were into it!

If I read the Gamechanger play by play correctly all 8 runs were scored with 2 outs - granted AC's 1st run came on a sac fly with 1 out but the sac fly was the 2nd out. Trojanettes left 8 on base while Archer City left 3. AC's gamechanger shows us with 14 hits, 2 walks and 1 batter reached on error, while they had 5 hits, no walks, and none reached on error. Should have been out of the inning in the 7th with no damage but after the error extended the inning Trojanettes with back to back singles to score two more insurance runs for the final score of the game.

Trojanettes left 8 on base while Archer City left 3. AC's gamechanger shows us with 14 hits, 2 walks and 1 batter reached on error, while they had 5 hits, no walks, and none reached on error. Should have been out of the inning in the 7th with no damage but after the error extended the inning Trojanettes with back to back singles to score two more insurance runs for the final score of the game.


With bases loaded in the first, we had a chance to blow it open but the girls were way too aggressive on the early pitches and Hilbers from Archer City smartly kept the ball located on the outside corner. We should have been patient and waited for a better pitch to hit but kudos to her for pitching a good game.

Actually, Windthorst only starts seniors at LF, 1B and 2B. Bringing back a ton of talent including pitcher and catcher. I see this continuing into next season as a top match-up.



Kinda leaving out the pitcher. She's been ya'lls ace for 3-4yrs.

She's good but our other pitcher is just as good. Throws harder, just different pitches. Two no-hitters and a 1-hitter over ranked Haskell so far. We won't have a drop off next year.



She is a starter is what i'm saying that's almost 1/2 your starters being srs and a really solid lead off who's a slapper. Really no big deal just odd she was left out. Our #2 throws harder than our ace but more to it than throwing hard. Big game experience is big, Hilbers pitched a lot last year in big games and as a freshman in the playoffs and district, makes a difference most of the time unless you have the girl from that 3A school that's just born a beast. I expect ya'll to be good just some quality players to replace

Lol, you're preaching to the choir, however, this case is different. This pitcher plays for a top DFW travel team and has been mowing down 5A and 6A talent down in DFW the past five years and has plenty of big game experience at that level, which I consider better competition than any high school game. She has several pitches in the arsenal including movement and change-up plus high velocity. Our coach is alternating her with the senior every game this year. She will pitch against Seymour tomorrow. Will she be named the ACE over a Schroeder...of course not. :lol:
All I am saying is we are very fortunate to have two, experienced "big-time" pitchers and we believe we could go to state in part because of them. Just my opinion and not wanting to start a board war, but I am a big believer in our Trojanettes and think this could be our year. Still a long way to go and we have to get past Archer City before the dream can be realized.


That and we are all a little biased when it comes to talking about our kids especially when they're a pitcher..LOL. Good luck to ya'll remainder of the season. Ya'll will be fine against Seymour they have trouble at the plate not many hitters right now.

I heard Seymour just cancelled remainder of their JV schedule. Maybe injuries depleted their players.

I did not enjoy playing at MSU two years ago. Coach said the field was nothing special and the stands were uncomfortable. I hope all our playoff games are at Graham. Nice facility, plenty of seating, short 40 minute drive, good restaurants nearby too.

MSU is now turf as is Optimist Club in Wichita Falls. I remember a couple years back (ok maybe a more than a couple David Nelson was a junior in high school so 2004 I believe) Petrolia and Windthorst playing at Optimist in the region finals. From a financial standpoint would make more sense if playing a 3 game series to do a home and home.

Still a lot of softball to be played....

Come playoff time, due to having to finish the games by a certain date, I am sure coaches will opt for turf field availability if possible. I do not like the MSU stands despite their field (turf or not). I'd prefer Optimist #2, Fusion field in WF, Henrietta or Bowie. If not turf, then I prefer Graham above all. Home and home, well Windthorst has decent seating but no guarantee the opponent field will be similar.

Olney 36, Electra 24 (5)

Teams R H E

Olney (10)93 1(13) — 36 25 6

Electra 83(10) 12 — 24 14 11

Battery: (O) Wade and Allen; (E) Macy Marsh, Breanna Arnold (2) and Christina Martin, Alexa Daniel (2). WP: Wade. LP: Macy Marsh (1-3).

2B: (O) Wade, Golden 2, Kulanek (E) Alexa Daniel, Ashlyn Prickett. 3B: (O) Allsbrooks. HR: None.

Leading Hitters: (O) Wade 6x6, 7 runs, Kulanek 4x5, 4 runs, 3 RBI; (E) Ashlyn Prickett 5x5, 4 runs, 4 RBI.

Records: Olney (2-4); Electra 4-11 (2-4).



I wasn't there for this one, but I am going to go ahead and bet that neither team had more than 10 ACTUAL base hits. I get frustrated with coaches trying to boost the box score. I don't doubt consistently putting the ball in play will win you games, but that doesn't mean they are "hits". Take notes from Chris Bryants dad, if any of you saw that article.
