Softball Steps Up to The Plate at the Start of Playoff Season

The Timber Creek varsity softball team is ending their regular season with a loss against Keller High School 4-3 at Keller which has further motivated the players to fight for a chance to win the state championship.

Senior left fielder, Casey Akers shares how the team is handling this year’s playoffs.

“We are much more relaxed. The majority of the team is upperclassmen so we have done a good job leading the underclassmen in what playoffs are like,” shared Akers.

This will be the fourth consecutive year in a row the softball team has made it to playoffs. The 2016-17 season has ended with the Lady Falcons having 26 wins, five losses and one tie in district and non-district games.

“Overall, this year has been a better experience for everyone,” said Akers. “We are hoping to make it to state.”

The first round of playoffs is set to begin against Paschal High School at Crowley High School. The games are set to be held on Thursday, April 27 and Friday, April 28 at 7:00 p.m. if necessary the third game is to be held on Saturday, April 29 at 1:00 p.m.
