Comments from State Tournament
2A: Shiner stamped a definite Comanche presence by winning their second straight state championships and run ruling both opponents.  Harleton, second a year ago was without their starting pitcher and fared not so well in their semifinal re-match with Shiner while Windthorst was unable to get their offense untracked against Cece Darilek who pitched a perfect game and earned her second straight final pitching victory.  For the sixth straight year the district in Southeast Texas has provided the state champion as Shiner won for the record setting sixth time overall and third time in six years to go along with two titles by distinct foes Weimar and one by Flatonia.

3A: Guyla Smith and her West lady Trojans won their first state championship in their fourth finals appearance by beating an exciting first time finalist, Colorado City Colorado who beat Brock 5-2 in the semifinals.

4A: LaGrange won their second state championship in three years winning both games 8-1.  Paris North Lamar had a great season placing third in district then winning 10 of 13 post season games. Defending runner-up Needville lost in extra innings to North Lamar in the semifinals.

5A: Birdville pounded top ranked Frisco 10-1 then rallied from 4-0 second inning deficit to edge Gregory-Portland 8-7 in the finals.

6A: Keller clipped Atascocita on an eighth inning play while Pearland blanked Weslaco.  In the finals Keller pitching and defense was the defense as the Indians became tied for the largest school (5A/6A) titles with three with Pasadena Dobie. Before you mention that Smithson Valley has four, reminder that was two in 4A and two in 5A.
Season observations.
Shiner won a record sixth state championship. The lady Comanches (2011-15-16) and district rivals Weimar (2013-14) and Flatonia (2012) have combined to win the last six straight classification championships. Shiner split two districts games with Weimar then beat the Wildcats 2-1 to earn the top berth. In playoffs the times met in the regional finals with Weimar winning game one 3-2 then shiner winning 8-4, 6-4 to return to state.
Three Texas teams were ranked first during the season in at least one of the national polls: LaGrange, Deerpark and San Benito.
This season, Class 5A Birdville was the only team to win state in their first trip to the Final Four.
Class 4A state champion West pitcher Danielle Nors finished the season with 35 wins, most in state tournament. West shortstop Maddison Kettler led all position-player hitters coming into the state tournament as she batted .678 on the season.

LaGrange won the most games of any state champion with 40 while North Richland Hills Birdville had the most losses with ten.  Birdville was actually 7-8 after non-district then lost only to Northwest in regular season and once in playoffs to Aledo while winning 23-2 to finish the season.
