Hudson softball excited about opportunity to defend title

HUDSON, TX (KTRE) - The Hudson softball team has a chance to repeat as class 3A champions. They are headed back to Austin for a second straight year and plan to use their experience to their advantage. The Lady Hornets know what the atmosphere and pressure is like and feel they will handle it quite well.

Hudson will face a Burkburnett team that is undefeated so far in the playoffs. Head Coach Jimmy Eby says the key to being successfully at the state tournament is doing the little things such as bunting runners over and hitting with runners in scoring position. What gives this team the best chance to the repeat is its defense and pitching. Hudson has given up two runs or less in every postseason game this year except for one.
