The Tejanas rallied to win their final three games of the tourney, knocking off Trinidad Junior College 9-8, Dodge City College 10-1 and Northeastern Junior College 8-1.
“I think they did very well,” said head coach Katie Gutierrez.
“They completed the goals they set out for as a team and they were able to accomplish them.”
Throughout the tournament, Gutierrez said she noticed more development in the team’s base running.
“Every time they play they make more improvements in the aspect of base running and hitting and fielding and being united as team,” said Gutierrez.
Even though the team has gotten off to a successful start, the team knows there is always room for improvement.
“I think every tournament that we play, we play more as a team so the next tournament I feel like we are going to grow more,” said third baseman Jasmine Mitchell.
The Tejanas will head to Fort Worth to play in the Cowtown Tournament this weekend. They take on the Seminole State College on Friday.
