What a ride

Our baseball season concluded yesterday with a state semi-final loss to the eventual state champion, Corpus Christi Calallen High School. While we do feel a pang of disappointment, it is simply impossible to look at this season as anything but a total success. We had a great group of kids who loved to play together and achieved above and beyond what anyone would have guessed possible at the start of the season. It was a privilege to watch from the stands and cheer them on all the way to Round Rock. We faced a very seasoned Calallen program (this was their 11th trip to the state tournament), and our nerves got the best of us in the first inning. We dug ourselves a 0-5 hole, and played from behind for the remainder of the game. Had we been able to erase that first inning, I feel like it could have been a very different game. Still, I am very proud of our team.

Congratulations to the state semi-finalist 2008 Friendswood Mustang Baseball team.

I read about this in the journal. A big pat on the back for getting that far. It took a lot of hard work and perserverance. Congrats guys!
