Getting to know the Lady Rattlers: An early start to their softball careers

News Reporter

Editor’s Note: This section is part of the Daily Record’s continuing series where we will be talking to every player on the Lady Rattler softball team and giving you — our readers — a little glimpse into these great student athletes.

Gabby Guerrero, Mariah Delgado and Madie Bumgardner are all juniors on this year’s San Marcos Lady Rattler’s softball team — and like most of the girls on the squad — they have been playing the sport since they were young kids.

Women's College Tennis: Texas State edges out UTSA

During a match where the final outcome was decided by a third-set tiebreaker, the Texas State women’s tennis team edged I-35 rival UTSA by a score of 4-3 last Thursday afternoon at the Bobcat Tennis Complex.

“We had our softball team and some athletics administrators come out and watch us play today,” Texas State head coach Tory Plunkett. “UTSA is probably a little better team right now on paper so having them out here really inspired us.”

Running and Fitness: Runners chose races based on their personality

Running with Moe

Area runners will have a choice of two races that are available today.  Which race the runners will choose depends on their personality and the interest about the two races that in many things are on opposite sides of running.  

The first race is the Capital 10,000 in Austin. It is one of the oldest races in Texas and one of the largest participation runs in the United States. It was my first ever race with an estimated 2,000 runners. You had to break a time (I seem to recall the time being 54 minutes) to get a tee shirt.  

High School Basketball: TCAL lauds SMA's head coach

Amy Yarbrough — the head coach of the San Marcos Academy Lady Bears — was named Coach of the Year by the Texas Christian Athletic League (TCAL) at the All-Star Banquet.

SMA Junior Kenna Mason also received the TCAL 3-A Player of the Year Award for basketball after having been named Most Valuable Player of the state tournament earlier in February.

The Lady Bears were the 3-A TCAL state champions, going 20-11 on the season.
Yarbrough, who is 60-53 in her four years at SMA, said she had the privilege of coaching three of her players all four years.

College Softball: Bobcats can't secure upset over No. 14 Baylor

Sports Editor

Texas State couldn’t afford to waste any scoring chances against No. 14 Baylor.

So when the Bobcats strung together a pair of singles to lead off the fourth inning, Ricci Woodard’s team had the starting ingredients for a big inning against the Bears.

Instead, Texas State watched as a golden opportunity slipped through its fingers and the bats fell silent the rest of the way en route to a 6-1 loss to Baylor on Wednesday night inside Bobcat Softball Stadium.
