If you remember back to December, the Shiner Comanches had an impressive run leading to their third state title in school history.  Shiner defeated Post 42-20 in the Class 2A, Division I state championship game at Jerry World in Arlington. The Commanches had a perfect season with a 14-0 record. Junior Doug Brooks was named Defensive MVP and Sophomore Dalton Brooks was named Offensive MVP.

Now the baseball team is on an impressive run of their own. The Shiner Comanches are heading to the state tournament for the first time since 2004. Last night, Shiner scored six runs in the top of the first inning and at the end of the 5th inning, the Comanches won with the 10-run-rule victory.  The final score was 14-3 over the Yellow Jackets and the Commanches improved to an impressive 33-4 record. Shiner will play a state semifinal game at either 4 p.m. or 7 p.m. Wednesday at Dell Diamond in Round Rock. The championship game is scheduled for noon Thursday, June 10.

Head Coach Daniel Boedeker spoke with the Victoria Advocate. “I give our kids a lot of credit for handling it well,” he goes on to add  “We explained to them that this could be a possibility of not knowing when we’re going to get to play and delays. They did a really good job of getting on the bus even when it was pouring rain and not knowing what to expect when we got there. Good luck to the Shiner Comanche Baseball squad.
