DS alums compete in Women’s College World Series

Staff Report

DRIPPING SPRINGS – Two former Dripping Springs softball players now compete on the University of Texas at Austin team – they battled in the Women’s College World Series last weekend.

Camille Corona, a sophomore at the 40 acres, came in as a pinch runner in game 2 of the best of three game series. UT didn’t fare too well against the rival Big 12 OU Sooners who swept the Horns 16-1 and 10-5 to win the Championship for the second consecutive year. Corona wears #28 because her hometown of Dripping Springs is 28 miles from McCombs Field in Austin. 

McCombs Field is where the UIL State Softball tournament is held annually and the Dripping Springs Lady Tigers softball team has a large 28 on the wall of their dugout as a reminder of how far away it is and the hard work it takes to get there.

Logan Hulon, another former Lady Tiger, came in to pitch two innings for Texas in the bottom of the first inning in game 1 against Oklahoma University (OU) at the Women’s College World Series. Hulon transferred from Marble Falls to Dripping Springs and excelled in the circle for the Lady Tigers softball team. 

In 2018, Hulon pitched 145 innings with 16 complete games, 18 wins and 6 losses, 286 strikeouts and a 0.63 ERA. She then pitched 109 innings in 2019 with 17 wins and 3 losses, 16 complete games, 200 strikeouts and a 0.83 ERA. Hulon transferred from Houston to the 40 acres and is now a sophomore at UT. 

Did you know: Former Lady Tigers pitcher and now Dripping Springs Assistant Coach Paige Sandahl (Shaffer) holds the record for strikeouts in a game –  20, strikeouts in a season – 483, and career strikeouts – 1008 (2005-08).
