High School Softball: San Marcos is ready for the Class 5A playoffs
There wasn’t much of a celebration when San Marcos won its first district title since 1999 two weeks ago. Haley Wright did carry Jenica Flores (who scored the winning run) to the post-game huddle and the Lady Rattlers posed for pictures, but that was about it.
San Marcos hopes to save its biggest celebration for May 31, which is the date of the Class 5A state final.
“It feels really good to win this, but I just want us to keep going further,” San Marcos senior shortstop Stephanie Marmolejo said. “It feels good to win, so I want to keep winning and go as far as we can.”
Marmolejo and the Lady Rattlers sure won a lot of games in the regular season as they compiled a 25-9 overall record, but they hope to win a lot more throughout the playoffs, which start tonight at 7 p.m.
San Marcos faces San Antonio Madison at the Northeast ISD Complex in a winner-take-all affair. This will be the first meeting between the Lady Rattlers and the Lady Mavericks.
A win would send San Marcos to the area round.
