The Uvalde Lobos experienced a see-saw softball season in 2018.
There were a lot of ups and a lot of downs.
“The team had some good moments and some not-go-great moments. It was a bit of a roller-coaster ride,” said first-year Uvalde High School head softball coach Jimmy Fly.
“There were many positives. We started out the season going undefeated and winning our own tournament,” said Fly. “We made the playoffs as the second-seeded team from our district.
“We had eight of our players selected to the All-District team,” said Fly. “And seven of our ball players earned All-Academic team honors.
“On the other side of things, we had three different four-game losing streaks. In a showdown game with the district title on the line, we lost a nine-inning game against San Antonio Harlandale. And we lost in bi-district action against Gregory-Portland,” said Fly. “But we played some really good opponents last year and we lost some close games. Our girls played hard. It was a learning experience.”
