Winning a District Championship gives a team a few things; first bragging rights, another banner to hang, the No. 1 seed heading into the playoffs and a huge target on their back.
No. 2 Atascocita, winning District 16-6A this season, entered the playoffs on Friday, facing Klein Collins in a one-game series. Win or go home.
“I think so because when we take the field we have everything in the world to lose,” Atascocita head coach Ashley Boyd said about there being extra pressure in a one-game series. “Most of the teams we’re playing early on there’s nothing for them to lose in it.
“Whenever you have nothing to lose and you’re going out there trying to prove something a team can do a lot of good things.”

On a night where the skies threatened with weather, Atascocita’s Kandace Johnson provided lights out pitching from the circle.The junior finished the game going the distance, tossing seven innings of scoreless softball, allowing just one hit, while striking out five en route to the Lady Eagles 9-0 win against Summer Creek at home.
“Kandace has been awesome for us,” Atascocita head coach Ashley Boyd said. “She came in, she’s coming off her elbow surgery and I’ve asked her to pitch a handful of times. She’s started some games at third base, I don’t know that she ever started a game at third in her life, and she’s been consistently our designated player for the year. So I’ve asked a lot of her and for her to be able to get out there and get a complete game shutout is awesome for her, she’s worked hard for it.”
Atascocita (19-2, 9-1 in District 16-6A play) came out from the start running the bases well and taking advantage of mistakes. click here for complete story
