The Uvalde Coyotes were not a pre-season pick to win the District 29-5A baseball title in 2018.
But they defied the odds, overcame adversity, and made believers out of their district opponents as they captured the district baseball crown.
After losing two of their first four district ball games, the Coyotes got on a hot streak as they won six district games in a row to finish first overall.
They then downed the Corpus Christi Carroll Tigers in the first game of the playoffs.
But they then lost a bi-district doubleheader to finish the season with a 17-12-1 record.
“It was a good season. One of our goals going into the season was to win the district championship,” said Uvalde High School head baseball coach Ricky Salazar.
“We had a lot of positives this past season. Besides winning the district title at the varsity level, our two junior varsity teams, the maroon team and the white team had a good season,” said Salazar. “We placed a lot of our players on the All-District team.”
The one goal the Coyotes did not meet in 2018 was to get past the first round of the playoffs.
