Canyon Lake’s Softball team was in discovery mode last Saturday as they opened their
pre/season part of the year.
The Hawks played three games on Saturday in New Braunfels Canyon High School.
Wins and losses are not what coaches are looking for during these skirmishes, but looking for hidden jewels and seeing how much work and the specific type of work needs to be done to ready a team for the season is a top priority.
After asking how Alexis Robinson pitched, Head Coach John Gallagher surmised, “Pretty good, she threw about seven innings overall and had three strikeouts. We used two different catchers so she did not throw a lot of different pitches.”
Canyon Lake will be thin in that pitching circle again this year and so how Robinson goes will also let you know how the Hawks will fair this year.
On how the games played out, Coach Gallagher said, “We showed our youth in game one versus Southwest with a few mental mistakes and nerves. Played better in game two versus Austin High School and got a look at a lot of different combinations. Played better versus Canyon. Kelsey Ahrens hit a two-run home run against Canyon.”
Canyon Lake will continue their learning curve this week when they take the diamond against Harper on Friday. This home game will start at 6pm and will be the last tune up as games count the next week.
