Advantage Academy Lady Eagles varsity won the 2015 Texas Charter School Academic & Athletic League softball State Championship on Saturday 20-0 vs Corpus Christi College Preparatory. The game was played in Del Valle, which is southeast of Austin.
“We were the underdogs going into the game since the other team was undefeated this season. Everyone just worked together as a team and played hard, Senior Marcella Morales pitched unbelievably,” said Coach Rochelle Northcutt. “When we started out this season and we had girls that had never played softball before. In fact, the majority of our team had never played before. They didn’t even know how to run the bases or hit the ball and now they are hitting, getting on base, stealing bases and having fun.”
The Lady Eagles were 8-3 for the season
This is the first State Championship team sport in the history of Advantage Academy.
The team is coached by Coach Rochelle Northcutt and Coach Lyndi Keller.
