Hays softball advances to area competition

A go-ahead run scored in the sixth frame by Emily Palacio on a passed ball made the difference for the Hays softball team as it ousted Vandegrift in a 3-2 bi-district one-game playoff Monday. Hays’ victory came after both teams waited more than 70 hours to complete their bi-district contest. Weather delays constantly pushed back the game, which had both teams travel to Kyle and Dripping Springs in an attempt to play. Hays advances to the area round where the Rebels will play state-ranked Converse Judson in a best-of-three series starting Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Hays High. Game 2 will begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Judson High in Converse. If Game 3 is needed because of a tie, it will follow Game 2 on Saturday at Judson High.

Hays High baserunner Emily Palacio safely slid into third base, advancing on a passed ball that got by Vandegrift’s catcher in the bottom of the sixth frame.

Hays High shortstop Mia LIscano (5) ranges to her left to corral a sharply hit Vandegrift Viper groundball to record the second out in the top of the seventh inning Monday.
