This past Saturday, our Varsity Softball team traveled to Argyle to compete in two scrimmages. We competed against Brock High School and Argyle High School. Both scrimmages went well and we were able to apply new skills that have been worked on in practice. While playing against Argyle High School, Natalia Rojas (9) and Samantha Garcia (10) both hit home runs! We are so proud of the girls and their hard work! Pictures of the two have been attached.

This Tuesday, our Varsity team will play their first game against Nolan Catholic HS here at PHS. We are also preparing to compete in three different tournaments which will be held over the next three weeks. This Thursday-Saturday, we will be competing in the Dallas ISD Softball Invitational where we will play two teams each day to compete for the Championship Trophy. Wish our girls luck as we kick off our season!
