Weekly Highlights
Well my apologies.  For the first time since then freshman Christa Williams of Dobie fanned movie star Kevin Costner in an event between games ceremony at the first UIl state softball tournament at Pleasant Valley Sportsplex, I was unable to attend the finals, but I will start a new streak next year.  However, I have several observations:

Five in a row for District 28-2A as Shiner won their second title since 2011.  Weimar won back to back in 2013 and 2014 while district mate Flatonia won in 2012.  Not surprisingly Ganado is also really good in that district of champions.

Speaking of Shiner, in 1996, Kristie Roznovsky played third base for the Shiner Lady Comanches. That  was the first trip to the final four for Shiner. This past week, her daughter Mackinly Pilat, played centerfield for the 2A state champs. Kristie and Mackinly are the first mother/daughter duo to play in the softball elite tournament for Shiner High School and actually I could not find another instance of that occurring in any classification.

Huffman-Hargrave continued to speed to the class 4A title after beating LaGrange in regionals, Hargrave ousted Needville , rallying form 4-0 down for a 6-4 championship.

East Bernard was second last year for two time champion Crawford (2014 and 2012) and behind Texas A&M signee Samantha Show claimed their state championship.

Aledo defended their crown edging Vista Ridge 3-2.  Aledo was second in 2013 to Hays just missing a three peat opportunity.  Aledo joins Weimar(2013 and 2014) and Lufkin Hudson (2012 and 2013) as back to back champions in the past five years.  Crawford, Shiner and Deer Park have each won two titles in the past five years, although not back to back.

Katy showed strong as they beat 2013 champion Lewisville to return the largest school title back to the Greater Houston area for the fourth time the past five state tournaments (Deer Park twice, and The Woodlands were the other winners).

Polls look back:

Pre-Season Number One ranked team: Weimar

UIL State champion: Huffman-Hargrave
Ranking March 10, 2015 (first week of records being reported)-LaGrange (Hargrave was fifth).
