Pirates eliminated in Region II finals
WACO – Musician DJ Khaled said it best.
“All we do is win, win, win.”
Pirate softball did plenty of that in the 2019 season.
They were victorious in 35 games, losing just four, and were champions of District 10-6A.
Once the playoffs rolled around, Wylie swept the competition through the first four rounds.
“For them to go as far as they did, it says a lot about their abilities,” WHS head coach Heather Damron said. “This was a special season for sure.”
They started with 8-2 and 4-3 wins over McKinney Boyd in bi-district.
That was followed by defeats of Temple 8-0 and 9-1 during area.
The Pirates then beat Waco Midway 9-0 and 4-2 in the quarterfinals.
They returned to the region semifinals in the next round for a second straight season.
Wylie was able to atone for last year’s defeats with 4-1 and 10-0 victories over Cypress Ranch.
Riding a six-game winning streak they traveled to Waco last week to face Klein Collins at Getterman Stadium.
Wylie’s offense was shut down in the opener, as they had one hit, from Bella Dayton, in the 4-0 defeat on the University of Baylor campus. They came up just short in the second game in a 3-1 defeat to Klein Collins.
Wylie’s Dayton scored her teams only run off a Rylen Wiggins two-out hit. They had runners on first and second in the seventh but were unable to score.
