 Eagles pitcher Jenika Lombrana threw for just four hits during the game and London Marder hit a homerun in the fourth inning to help Atascocita overcome the top ranked team in the nation.

The Lady Eagles (32-6) made it a short game after a big sixth inning which saw a dozen Lady Eagles take the plate for a total of seven runs.

Of the 12 Atascocita batters that went to the plate in the final inning, Macie Pampell, Katie Cimusz and Marder each hit two-run doubles.

Lesly Miranda also scored a run to put the Eagles up by 10. Lombrana finished the game in the bottom of the sixth.

“I definitely didn’t expect an 11-1 game,” said Ashley Boyd, head coach for Atascocita. “I’m happy with it, and I’m happy with the production.”

Katy’s single run was in the third inning behind a single by Kat Lopez to tie the game 1-1.

The Eagles advanced to the regional finals after sweeping Bellaire in the regional semifinals round May 18-19. The Eagles beat Bellaire 14-0 in Game 1 and 2-1 in Game 2.

Game 2 of the regional finals is set for Friday at Summer Creek.

The winner of the Region III finals will advance to the UIL 6A championship series against either Keller or Plano.

The championship series will be held at McCombs Field at the University of Texas from May 30 - June 2.

I am proud to be this area’s Tribune Newspaper voice for Humble, Atascocita, Kingwood, Kingwood Park and Summer Creek High School athletics, a capacity I have served in since the fall of 2011. High school sports are something I have grown to love since I started in this position, watching young kids live out their dreams in competition throughout the area and throughout the state. My greatest thrill in this position was being on Floor Eight at NRG Stadium in December of 2016 when Atascocita High School qualified for the state football semifinals for the first time. Aside from reporting sports, I am a regular parishioner of St. Martha Catholic Church of Kingwood. I am also a two-time graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s College of Journalism and Mass Communications, and am a proud, but realistic, Nebraska Cornhuskers supporter. I do root for Houston’s local sports teams, but the Huskers are my team forever.
