Rough day at Alpha Omega Academy

Lions, Lady Lions run-ruled at baseball, softball home games

HUNTSVILLE — This softball season has been a learning experience for Alpha Omega Academy.

With only four returning starters, the Lions are still feeling the growing pains.

It didn’t help after the Lady Lions got run-ruled by Pasadena First Baptist 15-4.

“Our girls kept fight throughout the game,” coach Kevin Traylor said.

The Lady Warriors set the tone by scoring eight runs in the top of the first inning.

Pasadena First Baptist had the first two base runners of the game after back-to-back walks.

Then Taylor Bright hit an RBI double, which made it 1-0.

Danielle Reed followed with a double that increased the lead to 2-0.

The Lady Warriors batted around the order as they tacked on six more runs to cap the inning.

Alpha Omega didn’t go away quietly as they scored two runs in the top of the second to cut the lead to 8-2.

Allison Martin led off the second with a triple and scored their first run on an RBI infield single by Lexi Lyle.

Lyle scored the second run on a fielder’s choice to cap the inning.

The Warriors tacked on three more runs in the top of the third inning, all with two outs to increase the lead to 11-2.

The Lions scored two runs on two errors to make it 11-4.

But First Baptist put it away as they added four more runs in the top of the fifth inning to increase the lead to 15-4 and put the run-rule in effect.

Warriors 11, Lions 0

The Alpha Omega baseball team wanted to finish the regular season on a high note in preparation for the playoffs.

Instead, the Lions were shut out by Pasadena First Baptist 11-0.

Nine of the Warriors’ eleven runs came on nine errors committed by the Lions.

The Lions will now focus on their likely first round TAPPS 2A playoff game with Boerne-Geneva on April 29.

    At the end of the Sam Houston State football team’s first preseason practice Monday at Bowers Stadium, new head coach K.C. Keeler told his players that they “did O.K.” There were dropped passes, missed assignments and errant throws from starters and backups alike. But there were also incredible displays of athleticism, as well as a sense of urgency from players hoping to win a starting job.
    The fate of Sam Houston’s season could rest on the arm of whoever emerges as the team’s starting quarterback. On Monday,  sophomore Don King III played with the first team, but sophomore Jared Johnson and redshirt freshman John Roderique each saw a comparable number of reps.
