Jack Yates and Wheatley make history at Girls Regional Finals

Wheatley and Jack Yates reach regional finals. vype.com

In the 4A Regional Finals HoustonISD had their best two teams in Wheatley and Jack Yates representing them.

Jack Yates came in with a new head coach in Patrick Augbon and many thought this would be a rebuilding year for the Lady Lions. But despite what people thought, Augbon rallied his team together and game by game the Lady Lions turned all the doubters into believers.

For Wheatley on the other hand, they came into the season with the mindset of state championship or bust. That was their goal last year but they fell short of it in the fourth round as they lost to Liberty Hill. Fast forward to this season and the Lady Wildcats not only got past the fourth round, but they did it through the revenge of defeating Liberty Hill who beat them last year.

With both Jack Yates and Wheatley making it to the Regional Finals in the same year, that set them up for a historic run as it was the first time in HoustonISD history that two girls teams from the same region reached the regional finals.

Wheatley came out on top in the regional finals game, but though somebody had to lose, both teams represented HoustonISD well.

Way to make history ladies!

The Astros have now lost five straight games and the starting pitching and bullpen have let them down over that stretch. Cristian Javier was recently demoted to help him build up his stamina so that he can pitch deeper in games as the team's 5th starter when the schedule demands a 5-man starting rotation. But in the meantime, the Astros could desperately use his help out of the bullpen, and he's likely headed for relief duty when Framber Valdez returns from injury anyway. So this begs the question, is a role as the team's fifth starter the best way to maximize Javier's abilities? Check out the video to find out.
