AU season the New Braunfels Unicorns have been wearing a gold bead on their softball shoes.
The symbol was kept a secret until Tuesday when the team returned victorious fiom a (hamitic, extra-innings battle with Smithson Valley.
After taking a 10-8 win and the District 28-4A championship, NBHS coach Cindy Manley was ready to reveal the story behind the golden beads.
“We put them there at the start of the season as a reminder that we were going for the gold,” Manley said. “Nobody expected us get this br. No one picked us to win district, but we did it**
And they did it in thrilling style. Trailing 8-7 in the top of the seventh inning, the Unicorns stayed alive when Joy Orr smacked a line drive shot to right field. The ball was mishandled in the outfield,
and Orr raced home for the tying nm.
In the eighth inning, playing under the international tie-breaktr nile (a runner is automatically placed on second base), Tammy Brume bunted Tuesday Covington to third base, and Emibe Wotipka sacrifice bunted to give the Unicorns a 9-8 lead. With two outs, Jennifer Ybarra’s driving grounder lo shortstop brought in Brume to make it 10-8.
The Rangers came back with runners at first and second and two out, when
Jenny Huclde drilled a line shot to third base. Oft was there to make the catch and end the game.
The Unicorns were behind 6-2 in the third inning when Orr hit an in-the-park homer that scored three runs. Melinda Aguirre added two runs with a shot to the right center field fence to make it 7-6.
The Rangers came back with two runs as Bethany Constable and Sarah Chapitle crossed the plate on two errors, putting Smithson Valley ahead 8-7.
Both teams had eight hits, but the Rangers had eight errors — two more than the Unicorns.
The Canyon Cigarettes, a 13-3 winner over Bastrop, will join the Unicorns as District 28-4A representatives in the playoffs. The coaches will meet with District 27-4A coaches to determine sites md time for next week’s playoff games.
