District softball is nearing its midway point at spring break. Here is a closer look at each district:
The Travis Lady Tigers are tied with Clements and Elkins at 1-2 to start District 20-6A.
Ridge Point (3-0), Kempner (2-1) and Dulles (2-1) sit on top of the standings in the early part of the season.
For Travis, senior Noemi Cortez leads the team in power with three home runs and seven RBIs in 17 at-bats.
Junior Mady Leighton hasa .524 batting-average in 21 at-bats.
Sophomore pitcher Rachel Ybarra has a 2.50 ERA in five starts.
The George Ranch Longhorns are second in District 23-6A with a 3-1 record.
Pearland is 3-0 at the top with the teams just behind George Ranch being Pearland Dawson (2-1) and Brazoswood (2-2).
The Longhorns have battled a tough early schedule for a 4-7 mark.
Foster has the deepest pedigree with a trip to the state finals last season. On top of that, the Lady Falcons lost only four seniors.
The biggest change comes on the mound with sophomore Amanda Allen replacing Kacie Pryor in the circle.
The Lady Falcons (4-0) and Angleton (4-0) stand on top of the district standings early and will likely face off for the district crown at season’s end.
The question is if Lamar Consolidated (2-3) or Terry (2-3) can find a way to head off Manvel (3-1) or Shadow Creek (3-2) for playoff spot.
Terry let close games against Manvel and Shadow Creek slip away and will have to win on the road to have a chance at the playoffs.
After four games, the Needville Lady Jays are alone on top of the 25-4A standings at 4-0.
El Campo is right behind at 3-1, followed by Sealy (2-1) and Wharton (2-2).
Fulshear enters spring break at 1-2 looking up from fifth place.
But on a positive note, both Charger losses came against the current top teams in the district with Needville and El Campo.
East Bernard finished third in District 24-3A last season behind Danbury and Rice Consolidated.
Danbury remains on top in 24-3A after three games at 3-0 in the 2019 season, followed by Boling at 3-1 and Tidehaven at 2-0.
The Brahmarettes have lost close games to Boling (4-2) and Tidehaven (5-2) to start the season.
Brazos softball is 1-1 to start the season behind Weimar (3-0) and Shiner (2-0) in its first year in 2A. The Cougarettes are joined by 2A teams Flatonia (0-1) and Louise (0-2), and 1A teams Fayetteville (0-2) and Moulton (0-0).
