Coronado falls short at state title game

(ROUND ROCK, TX - KCBD) - The Coronado baseball team fell Saturday to Brazoswood in the 5-A Baseball State Title Game, 10-3. The Mustangs advanced to the championship game Friday with a 10-0 run-ruled game against the defending champions, Corpus Christi Carroll.

"It was just one of those things...we came up against somebody who was better than us today, they deserve to win, and they took it from us," said first-year head coach Gary Hix. "I couldn't be more proud. To do what they've done--battle each week, backs against the wall--man, what can you say."

Brazoswood broke open the game with a 5-run sixth inning, then shut down the hot Mustang bats in the fifth, sixth, and seventh innings for zero runs. The Buccaneers' shortstop Williams Renner had four runs batted in on three hits in the game and was named MVP.

The title is Brazoswood's third in school history and first since 1992.

Today's game was Coronado's second appearance in school history--and its first since 1995. The Mustangs end their season 33-16 on the year.

Brennan Johnson was a senior outfielder for the Mustangs: "There's no other team I'd rather be here with and play my last game at Coronado with...I mean, we fought our heart out all year, we just came up one game short."
