If you’re a fan of Texas State athletics, then this weekend sure had it all.
From the Bobcat women’s basketball team winning their fifth consecutive game to the baseball team shutting out Air Force to cap the Texas State Baseball Invitational and everywhere in between, you’d be hard-pressed to find a three-day stretch with even more in it.
Perhaps the biggest news of the weekend was the Bobcat women extending their winning streak. Texas State broke away from UT Arlington in the final minutes and moved even closer to first place in the Sun Belt Conference. This is the Bobcats’ longest win streak since 2007-08, the same year they won the Southland Conference regular-season title.
Hot shooting by the Mavericks, especially in the second half, made a Texas State sweep impossible. UTA had its way with Danny Kaspar’s team in the second half en route to a 69-62 win at the College Park Center.
Let’s not forget what kind of season the Bobcat softball team is having thus far. Texas State went 3-2 at the Campbell Cartier Classic in San Diego, Calif. and used a walk-off home run by Katie Doerre to beat No. 24 California last Saturday. Ricci Woodard’s team is now 7-3 and hosts UTSA on Wednesday.
Then we have the Bobcat baseball team — and Ty Harrington’s bunch knows how to make it interesting. Texas State went 2-1 in its own tournament after it beat Michigan in extra innings last Friday, wasted a gem by junior pitcher Taylor Black against Washington and bounced back versus the Falcons in a big way.
