Marble Falls’ softball team is going to rely on speed this year.

Starting four freshmen in the lineup might have its growing pains, but if the District 26-5A opener is any indication, the Lady Mustangs are going to be just fine.

The Lady Mustangs took care of business Tuesday night in the district home opener and beat San Antonio Alamo Heights, 7-1.

Sophomore pitcher Logan Hulon was sharp with his riseball working to perfection. She finished with 17 strikeouts and allowed only three hits. She walked two.

“I always feel like I’m going to pitch my best,’’ Hulon said. “I had my riseball working.’’

The Lady Mustangs improved to 4-6-2 overall by winning the district opener.

Mya McMillian was one of the first out of the locker room.

She was the first to say “we’ll be back.’’

Marble Falls girls basketball didn’t play well in its last game of the 2016-2017 season, but this year will be marked as the time the team lived “Our Moment.’’

A 46-28 defeat in the Region IV-5A semifinals was hard to take. The Lady Mustangs big guns weren’t hitting and the Corpus Christi Flour Bluff Hornets played aggressively from the first tip and carried the momentum from a double digit lead at halftime all the way to a regional title and a berth in this week’s Final Four.

Flour Bluff’s Meredith Marcum and Mia Schlemme combined for 10 points and provided excellent ball-handling the seal the victory.

Flour Bluff carries a 29-9 record into its state semifinal matchup with Mansfield Timberview.

Marble Falls shot the lights out Tuesday night in Gonzales.

The Lady Mustangs used mid-range shots from junior Aubree Adams for 15 points and long range bombs from Molly Myrick to take an emotional 63-58 victory over Port Lavaca Calhoun in a Region IV-5A playoff quarterfinal game at Gonzales High School.

“We got solid games from everybody,’’ Marble Falls coach John Berkman said. “From the starters to some of the role players, everybody contributed. This was fun.’’

Both teams combined for 14 makes for 3-point range. None were any bigger than the “Molly bombs’’ delivered by senior Myrick.

One of her biggest shots was a driving layup for a 58-55 lead with 2:19 left. But her long range shot for a 61-56 lead with 53 seconds left was the sealer almost.

Marble Falls girls won’t back down from anybody. They showed in
Friday night in taking a 57-47 area round Class 5A, Region IV victory over San Antonio Houston at Cedar Creek High School.

Marble Falls’ Aileen Neri came off the bench to ignite the Lady Stangs in the physical affair. The referees spent most of the night deciding to call charging or fouls on defenders in the nip on tuck battle.

Marble Falls seized the upper hand early but was able hold off the 19-13 San Antonio squad because of the Hurricanes inability to shoot. The Hurricanes were terrible fron the floor and free throw line.

But the San Antonio school was persistent throwing up shots.

The score was just 8-5 Marble Falls after the first quarter. Marble Falls built a 24-16 lead at the halftime.
