A year removed from the State Semis, Deer Park Softball is within throwing distance of returning toAustin--in hopes of bringing some hardware back to campus.
With a group comprised of next-level senior athletes--Erin Perez (C), Bryanna Fuentes (IF), AngelinaMorales (1B), Lorelei Graham (OF), Aubrey Graham (P), Lindsey McKnight (OF), and more--Deer Parkis only six wins away from claiming another state championship (last won it in 2021).
VYPE’s Matt Malatesta caught up with third-year coach Amy Vidal-Bush, as she and her team prepare to take on Pearland in the Regional Finals.
Deer Park is always the team that consistently makes the playoffs and reaches the third round. Entering 2022, the Deer are riding a three-season streak of reaching the Regional Quarterfinals.
Now, can they get to their first Regional Tourney since 2019 this fall?
Led by seventh-year coach Cortni Cox (185-103), who will get career win No. 200 this season, said the keys for Deer Park’s success in 2022 predicate on “Teamwork, Grit and Determination”. With five starters returning off the District Championship squad, they should be in good shape.
They return first-team, all- district players Tatum Busch, Cayley Hanson and Ella Gilbert. Hanson was also named the District Setter of the Year. Second teamers Emmy Vincent and Kayleigh Dyson will be others to take note of.
