The Brenham Cubettes are set to take the next step in their quest for a softball state championship—the Region Semi-Finals.
The Cubettes (23-10) take on perennial powerhouse Barbers Hill (29-4) in a best two-of-three at the University of Houston.
Both teams are unbeaten in the post-season, as the Cubettes have defeated Rouse (10-0, 16-2), College Station (4-2, 4-1) and Magnolia West (4-0, 1-0). Barbers Hill swept Vidor (12-0, 8-0), Galena Park (7-0, 2-0) and Dayton (5-3).
Meg Morris has been unbeatable in the post season (6-0, 0.70 era, 0.90 whip).
Meagan King has been equally impressive for the Lady Eagles, dealing four shutouts in their five post-season wins.
Ariana Saenz, Tristin Anders and Rebecca Miller have helped pace the Eagles’ offese. Eight different Barbers Hill players have driven in runs in the post-season.
Katherine Marshall has been a key contributor for the Cubettes lately, driving in seven runs in their last four wins. Leadoff hitter Kelly Jurden is hitting .454 in the post-season with eight runs scored in six games.
Game one of the best-of-three is set for tonight at 7:00 at the University of Houston. The game can be heard with Doug Brown and Blake Hickerson on KWHI and www.kwhi.com beginning at 6:30.
Game two and, if necessary, game-three will be Friday night beginning at 6:00. The games can be heard on www.kwhi.com and the alternate feed on the KWHI phone app. The pre-game show begins at 5:30.
The winner of the semi-final series advances to the Region Final against the winner of the series between Willis and Kingwood Park.
Ticket admission is $5 for everyone, cash only.
Friday there will be limited access in Lot 15H due to some displaced parkers needing reserved spaces for the 6:30 PM UH Baseball start. 15H is the primary parking spot for softball so the plan would be to put out cones to reserve the spaces for 30-40 displaced baseball parkers. Leaving everything else in 15H open as available softball parking on a first come/first serve basis, so the impact will be minimal but will be less available parking spots due to the conflict.
Attached is a map th for the Friday matchup. The map highlights the additional softball parking lots along Elgin St. (Lot 16D & Lot 16E) if lot 15H is filled either Thursday or Friday.
