Women's College Tennis: Four players sign with Texas State

Texas State announced the signing of four players to the tennis team for the 2015-16 season.

Bobcat head coach Tory Plunkett officially inked Bianca Birkenstock, Chia Ming Ming Joy, Yadira Rubio and Ana Perez to National Letters of Intent to play for Texas State next season.

The four players will join the Bobcats’ three returning players from last season’s team (soon to be senior Katy Collins along with soon to be juniors Pippa Carr and Eva Dench).

Texas State finished last season at 9-7 and reached the second round of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament.

Facing a one-run deficit in the ninth inning, Texas State elected to roll the dice.

The result?

It came up snake eyes.

As was the case throughout their weekend series against Arkansas State, the Bobcats couldn't author the one big play — whether it was on the mound or at the plate — that would stem the tide in their favor.

Just 24 hours after his walk-off single in the first game, Nick Gutierrez wanted to be sure that San Antonio McCollum was finished off Friday night.

The senior’s complete game along with a flurry of runs from San Marcos’ bats surged the Rattlers’ 10-3 win over the Cowboys and lifted them into the area finals.

With the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, head coach Bryan Webb chose to keep Gutierrez on the mound trusting his pitcher and defense could quell McCollum’s rally.

Uncertainty remains about whether Texas State will offer full cost of attendance

At the present time, it doesn’t look like Texas State is going to provide full cost of attendance for its student athletes, according to multiple sources within the athletic department.

This stipend, which would put extra cash in the pockets of student athletes, is designed to cover additional expenses (food, personal travel and incidentals) beyond what is provided by grant-in-aid scholarships (tuition, room and board).

High School Softball: Lady Rattlers fall in area finals to Georgetown

AUSTIN — It wasn’t the ending San Marcos imagined.

With aspirations of recapturing 2014’s success, the Lady Rattlers’ run ended Thursday night at Del Valle High School in a 7-3 loss to the Georgetown Eagles.

The normally decisive fielding of San Marcos (26-5) was uncharacteristically hesitant to make throws during Georgetown’s (15-14) small-ball strategy all game. One mishap led to another and the Lady Rattlers were simply in too deep come the seventh inning to make a rally.
