If at first you fall, get up and try again.

After the defense topped the offense in Tuesday’s spring practice session, the offense came back with a vengeance.

The defense ended Tuesday’s practice with two big defensive stops, but Wednesday afternoon it was all about the playmakers.

“We always say competition breathes success,” San Marcos head coach Mark Soto said. “There’s going to be a loser, it’s a game, but what I like seeing is when one group loses I want to see them respond that next day.”

The first-place Houston Astros are not exactly what you would expect to hear from anyone beyond the month of April. 
 
But it's true.
 
The same 'Stros who are usually only referenced primarily for their old rainbow softball looking unis and legendary pitcher (Nolan Ryan) are accomplishing something in the first two months of the Major League Baseball season that has rarely come to fruition.
 
They are winning.
 
And winning a lot.

By JOE VOZZELLI

Most preseason prognosticators probably thought Texas State and UL Lafayette would be squaring off on championship Sunday of the Sun Belt Tournament.

After all, the Bobcats and Ragin’ Cajuns occupied the top two slots in the conference’s preseason rankings.

And yet, for a myriad of reasons, Texas State and UL Lafayette have failed to meet those expectations.
