The Mats concluded the tournament Saturday with a 5-1 setback to Edinburg-Vela and a 7-1 loss to Santa Gertrudis.

Skylar Loftin and Tate Smith each recorded an RBI as well. Vanessa Garza went 3-4 and earned the complete-game win in the pitcher’s circle, tossing a five-inning four-hitter with three strikeouts and a walk.

Wendel and Atchley each drove in two runs in the win over Del Valle. Presley Pence went 2-2 with a run and an RBI. Garza and Osborne drove in a run apiece, and Garza scored twice. Osborne was the winning pitcher after a three-inning, five-hit performance. All four of Del Valle’s runs in the third inning were unearned. Garza pitched two scoreless relief innings.
