Uvalde High School enjoyed a successful team tennis season in 2013. With a lot of personnel returning from that varsity team and some good young prospects coming up, UHS should be in for another great season of team tennis in 2014.
The Medina Panthers were the only District 29-4A baseball team to survive the first round of the post-season baseball playoffs last weekend. Medina Valley recorded a couple of shutouts, 10-0 and 4-0, over District 30-4A’s four-place team, the Corpus Christi Tuloso-Midway Warriors.
The Uvalde Coyotes will play four home games and six road games next football season. They will begin their 2014 varsity football campaign on the road when they take on the McCollum Cowboys at San Antonio’s Harlandale Memorial Stadium on Aug. 29.
Former professional football player Tim Brown will be the featured speaker at the Uvalde High School Sports Banquet scheduled for May 12 at the Uvalde County Events Center at the Fairplex. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m., the serving will begin at 7 p.m., while the feature speech will under way at approximately 7:40 p.m.
Uvalde High School’s softball season came to an end Saturday afternoon at Charlotte as the Lobos lost a 10-4 decision in game two of their bi-district playoff series against Corpus Christi Calallen. “Our girls played hard and competed hard,” said UHS head softball coach Lee Summers. “In the end, we lost to a good Calallen softball team.”
Lee Summers will not be back as head softball coach at Uvalde High School next year. Following the Uvalde-Calallen playoff game Saturday at Charlotte, Summers informed his varsity players that he will tender his resignation as head softball coach. “I had hoped to tell the girls the news of my retirement down the road, well into the playoffs, but that did not work out for us,” said Summers.
Friday night at Uvalde’s Marvin Kolinek Field, the Uvalde Coyotes were scheduled to play their final baseball game of the regular season. They were to face the district champion Medina Valley Panthers. Results from the game will be reported in Thursday’s edition of the Uvalde Leader-News.
The Uvalde Lobos were to wind up their best-ofthree games bi-district softball playoff series against the Corpus Christi Calallen Wildcats yesterday at Charlotte. Results from yesterday’s action and the game Friday night will be reported in Thursday’s edition of the Uvalde Leader-News.
The Uvalde lobos will face the Corpus Christi Calallen Wildcats in a bidistrict softball playoff series scheduled for tomorrow and Saturday at Charlotte. Game one is set to begin at 7 p.m. tomorrow, while game two will get under way at 2 p.m. Saturday. Should a third game be needed to resolve the best-of-three playoff series, the third game will follow game two Saturday.
The Uvalde Coyotes scored three runs in the fourth inning and four runs in the fifth inning to blow open what had been a pitcher’s duel, and they went on to record an 11-1 baseball victory over the San Antonio Memorial Minutemen last Friday. Memorial’s ace pitcher Ivan DeAnda, who pitched seven innings in a loss against Harlandale earlier in the week, retired the first nine Uvalde batters he faced.
