Bridgeland Softball First in CFISD History to Qualify for UIL Softball StateÂ Tournament
The Bridgeland High School softball team won the Region II-6A championship on May 26, qualifying for the UIL Softball State Tournament for the first time in program and CFISD history.
After losing the first game 3-1, the Bears defeated Langham Creek in a best-of-three series by winning Game 2 and 3, 5-1 and 3-2, respectively.
“It means the world to us to make it this far in the six short years Bridgeland has been open,” said Candi Weige, Bridgeland head softball coach. “We have such a great support system here at Bridgeland and that means a lot. The support speaks to what we say, ‘Win the Day,’ and we really try to do that very thing every day. It also speaks to what we’re trying to accomplish this season.”
The Bears will face Denton Guyer in the second Class 6A state semifinal at 7 p.m. on June 2 at Red and Charline McCombs Field at the University of Texas at Austin (2001 Comal St.).
If Bridgeland defeats Denton Guyer, the Bears will play the winner of Pearland and San Benito in the state final at 4 p.m. on June 3.
“The past four years I’ve played on varsity and this is what we’ve been working towards,” said Bridgeland senior Trinity Allen. “We spend so much time in the offseason preparing for moments like this. We’ve played some tough teams during the season and in playoffs, so it’s incredible to be where we are right now.”
Tickets will be $15 apiece (adults and students) and will be sold online. The East Campus Garage located on the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and I-35 will be open for parking. A clear bag policy for the tournament is in place.Spectators will enter through Gates 1, 2 or 4 at Red and Charline McCombs Field.
