Brock baseball is headed to the UIL State tournament where they will face Corpus Christi London on Friday in the UIL Class 3A State Semifinal game. Let's take a look at the breakdown between the teams per MaxPreps.
Brock has posted a 26-7-1 overall record this season going undefeated in district play (14-). With 281 runs in favor of the Eagles, fans can expect Brock to come out as heavy hitters on Friday as they step onto the diamond in Round rock. Behind Jaxson Gleaton and Carson Lightfoot, Brock's offense has been on fire all season. The same should be expected on Friday.
Holding their opponents to only 90 collective runs this season, Brock's defense doesn't leave anything to be desired by their fans. It's going to be hard to shut down such an aggressive defense and the Eagles aren't going to slip up on the biggest stage in Texas high school baseball.
CC London Pirates
The Pirates have posted a 25-5-1 overall record on the season with an undefeated district record (10-0). Corpus Christi London will be one of the toughest opponents that Brock has seen all season.
Outscoring their opponents by nearly 140 runs on the season, the Pirates bats are going to give Brock a run for their money on the field on Friday. Known for consistent offense and scoring, the Pirates will be a tough opponent for Brock at the state semifinals.
Fans can expect nothing less than competitive and great gameplay coming out of both teams. If Brock's defense proves to play as strong as they have all season, the Eagles should be able to shut down the Pirates' bats and advance to the state championship game.
The game is set for Friday at Dell Diamond in Round Rock, Texas with a first-pitch time of 9 a.m.
Jacket Fight Never Dies: Rockwall Lady Yellowjackets punch their ticket to the UIL State Championships
In an interview with VYPE DFW during the 2021 baseball/softball photoshoot presented by Whataburger, Rockwall junior outfielder Carter Smith mentioned that one of the goals this season was to "go deep in playoffs." It's safe to say that that goal is definitely a reality after the Lady Yellowjackets swept Bryan in the UIL Class 6A Region II Regional Finals. Rockwall softball is on their way to the state championship game!
Rockwall has shown that they won't let anything stand in the way of accomplishing a goal that they set for themselves early on this season. Although their goals started small- first, to beat Heath- they grew. After Smith mentioned going deep in playoffs as a long-term goal for the team, junior first baseman Elizabeth Schaefer cracked a joke that their ultimate goal would be winning state. Although Schaefer was being whimsical in her answer, the stars have seemed to align for the Lady Jackets.
On Thursday, Rockwall held Bryan off from forcing a game three. Instead of falling to a determined Bryan, Rockwall won by a 5-4 score and punched their ticket to the UIL Class 6A State Championship game. Rockwall is set to face off against the winner of Judson vs. Bowie.
