Hawks Beat Bandera
Canyon Lake Hawks girls softball team went out in style for their last regular season game with a no-hitter, 14 strikeout, grand slam victory over the Bandera Bulldogs, 12-0.
“They knew what they needed to do,” Head Coach John Gallagher commented after being drenched by the team in recognition of his 100th Hawk win. “We stayed focused all week and went to work right away.”
Pitcher Lauren Mentzer needed a game like this through this district season as she walked her first batter and then proceeded to strikeout the next 14 batters for the victory.
In fact, Mentzer had one ball that made the playing field and that was the last Bulldog at the plate and the ground ball went to Mentzer for the throw to first that finished the game.
“I know what I needed to do and I just made sure I focused and pitched to get a strike.” ‘Osterman’ Mentzer said of her 14 strikeouts. “This will mean we will start off good and continue in doing what we need to do in lengthening our season.”
