Girls soccer

Girls soccer has had an adverse week, playing four games since Feb. 25. They remain undefeated, with wins over Wagner (7-0), New Braunfels (3-0) and South San (9-0). With a 0-0 tie against Clemens, the Rangers sit in first place, and the results of tonight’s match between Clemens and Steele will decide the district’s frontrunners.

Boys soccer

In the same predicament as the girls, the boys soccer team defeated Wagner 3-1 and New Braunfels 6-2, moving them to second in district. The boys lost to undefeated Clemens 4-0 on Monday, and bounced back with a 2-0 win over South San. Alex Franz scored the first goal, and the second was scored by freshman Greg Gelsone, assisted by sophomore JD Worley.


Laney Skrobanek placed eighth place in state for the 100 meter backstroke Monday, at the Davis natatorium. This is following her second place finish in the region, causing her to be called up to the state championship. The team now looks to offseason, and summer training.


Softball rebounded from the tournament quite nicely behind a stellar pitching performance from Seneca Anthony. The New Braunfels hitters were held to just 2 hits through seven innings and recorded an eye-popping 14 strikeouts. Offensively, the Rangers were led by Maddie Macdougal along with three others who recorded a hit against the Unicorns. Later this week, the team will be competing in the Hays Tournament that will be held from tomorrow to Saturday.


Baseball swept the San Marcos Tournament this past week, winning their four games by a combined score of 21-3. The team was propelled by strong pitching, including from sophomore relief pitcher Jackson Elizondo, who pitched the team out of multiple loaded-bases jams in two days. Juniors Tim Arguello (4.2 IP, 0 ER, 8K) and Dylan Domel (5.2 IP, 2 ER, 4 K) also shined in their respective debuts. The team will host the San Antonio/Comal Classic this weekend.


Varsity tennis has a tournament on Friday, March 5. Hayden Rios has placed second every tournament so far this year. Rocco Perciavalle and Luke Cantu have won the back draw in their last tournament. Junior varsity does not have a tournament this week. 


Senior Amalie Mills ran the 4×800 at the adidas Indoor Nationals in Virginia Beach on Feb. 27. Mills ran with Celerity Performance, and her time of 2:10 helped the team place second in the nation with a U.S. Top 20 record.


Wrestling is now in season, and varsity will be diving into 2 quad meets and 1 tri meet before March sixth. Varsity will compete in the Churchill tri meet on the fourth, and a quad meet at New Braunfels on the fifth. The rangers will end their opening with a quad meet at Vandegrift.
