Pitcher Jessica Adams and the Bryan softball team mimicked the weather with a dreary start, but the Lady Vikings warmed up in a big way for a 10-3 victory over the Bastrop Cedar Creek Lady Eagles in the NFCA Texas Leadoff Classic on Thursday at Lady Viking Field. Adams hit the first batter the junior right-hander faced and Gabby Gomez followed with an RBI triple that helped the Lady Eagles take a surprising 2-0 lead in a game delayed several hours by inclement weather. “With the weather it’s, ‘Hey, we’re going to get out this time,’” Bryan coach Enrique Luna said. “Then, ‘No, we’re not.’ Plus, I mean, it got cold quickly.” The weather seemed to bother the Cedar Creek fielders as Bryan took a 3-2 lead in the second inning. Instead of being retired in order, Bryan’s first three batters reached on a weak grounder to first base, a grounder back to the pitcher and a sacrifice bunt. Cedar Creek muffed the catch on all three plays, and Bryan baserunners also took extra bases at will. The Lady Vikings took the lead when their No. 9 hitter struck out and the catcher threw the ball to first, allowing the runner to score. Bryan extended the lead to 5-2 as junior Jacque Adams, Jessica Adams and sophomore Alexis Rodriguez added hits. The Lady Vikings (2-0) put the game away with five more runs in the third. The bottom of the lineup set the tone with back-to-back, two-out singles by senior Natalia Garcia and freshman Makayla Marquez. Jacque Adams walked to load the bases, and her sister lined a shot over the fence in right-center field for a grand slam, the 21st homer of her career. Sophomore Kylie Hernandez followed with a solo shot to center field. “I was proud of our hitters there, the bottom of the lineup,” Luna said. “They started a little rally there. That was positive to see. We needed that jolt.”...

Rudder High School News

The Rudder boys basketball team scored 11 of the game’s final 12 points for a 53-46 overtime victory at College Station on Friday to keep any hopes of a playoff berth alive. “We haven’t given up,” Rudder coach Mike Carrabine said. “We can win out, and some things could happen. We have Magnolia next, but the other tough teams we are done with, so I feel like it’s possible. Going forward it’s pretty much one and done.” Rudder improved to 9-22 overall and 3-8 in District 19-5A with three games remaining. College Station dropped to 13-18 overall and 2-9 in district. The game was tight throughout with the biggest lead by either team being the final score, which ended when Jeremiah Johnson stole an inbound pass and went the distance to score just before the buzzer. College Station’s Jaden Hall opened the scoring in the four-minute overtime with a 3-pointer. But the Cougars missed their final three shots and had three turnovers the rest of the way, while the Rangers were efficient, scoring in the paint twice to take the lead then making enough free throws to keep the Cougars at bay and gain a split among the two teams. College Station won 39-37 at Rudder in the first half of district play. Grayson Adams scored then Keithron Lee made a basket on an inbound pass from Carlos Moreno to put the Rangers up 46-45 in overtime. Lee and Johnson each made two free throws, Johnson’s coming after rebounding a missed free throw. Moreno made one of two free throws to counter College Station’s only other point in the overtime, an Owen North free throw. North hit a 3-pointer to tie the game with 10 seconds remaining in regulation. Lee had a chance to end it at the buzzer, but his contested shot in the lane fell short. “Our little inbound play at the end I thought they fouled us,” Carrabine said. “I wanted the ball in [Lee’s] hands regardless of the missed free throws we’ve had. He is the most experienced, most savvy guy we have.” In the final 2 minutes of regulation the teams combined for five 3-pointers and four lead changes. Tretzan Garcia twice gave College Station the lead with 3-pointers. Kentun King countered the first and Moreno the second with treys. Overall the teams combined for 39 points in the final quarter, only six less than they scored in the opening three quarters. The seven 3-pointers in the fourth quarter with only two less than the total shots taken in the opening quarter, which ended with the Cougars leading 5-2....
