The Austin League returned from Spring Break this Sunday and Mother Nature finally allowed us to get in some Softball Games to go along with Flag Football!  We had a shake-up at the top in the Power Rankings as former #1 went down last Sunday! More on that below.. Also, a Scheduling Note: The PARK is closed this Sunday for a special event (it has been on the Schedules).. Just a heads up, we will be back on Sunday April 9!

Here’s a Link to the Weekly Highlight Video!

Power Rankings

1. Team ZBT JR (SLA Insurance) – 2-0

Moving up from #2 to #1 this Week is Team ZBT JR. They continue to impress on the Flag Football field early this season and they are now the final Undefeated Team left standing in the League. This past Sunday they took down #5 Team SAE FR 22-16.  Captain Brent Rubin has proved to be one of, if not the, Best QB in the League early this Spring. They look to move to 3-0 against former #1 Team Fat Sal’s when we return on Sunday April 9!

 

2. Team Rosen (Spikeball) – 2-1

HUGE Win for Team Rosen on Sunday as they had their first Softball Game of the Season. They won by a wide margin over former Teammates of theirs on Team Fat Sal’s. Of the 4 Teams that played Softball on Sunday they seemed the most comfortable at the plate, easily getting into the double digits in Runs Scored. Parker Hinman, Josh Gold and Riley Holmes all had 4 hits apiece. They get Team ZBT SO in Softball on April 9!

 

3. Team SAE SO (StudentCity Pink) – 2-1

Team SAE SO got the most exciting Win of the weekend and hopped up into the #3 spot following their W over Team ZBT FR. They earned a 6-5 Softball Win in walk-off fashion!  Will Gaus went 4 for 5 with an RBI at the dish on Sunday. They look to make it two Wins in a row when they go up against familiar foes in their younger bros – #5 Team SAE FR! Should be a fun one on the Flag Football field!

 

4. Team Fat Sal’s – 2-1

Team Fat Sal’s suffered their first Loss of the Season on Sunday as they took to the Softball diamond against Team Rosen. They drop a few spots in the Rankings following the L but they shouldn’t let one bad Game get them down. Alex Pinder was a bright spot at the plate with a few hits. On April 9 they have a big showdown with new #1 Team ZBT JR on the gridiron!

 

5. Team SAE FR (StudentCity Red) – 1-1

Team SAE FR had a close one with #1 Team ZBT JR on Sunday in Flag Football (one of the more difficult assignments in the League) but came up just a bit short, falling by a score. These guys really battled though and it’s a sign of good things ahead. They’ll need to learn how to bounce back quickly in All Sports Series. They have a fun one to gear up for, as they will be back on the Flag Football field on April 9 against the other SAE squad.. The Sophomores!

 

Rest of the Pack (Alphabetical Order)

Team ZBT FR (Dr. Jacob D.D.S.) – 0-3

Team ZBT FR was so close to gaining their first Win of the Season but suffered a tough Loss in walk-off fashion against SAE SO in what was an excellent Softball Game. Sam Sherman had a couple hits and an RBI. Their attention now shifts to facing ZBT SR on Sunday April 9 where they will once again take to the Softball diamond. One of those squads will certainly get their first W of the Season that day!

 

Team ZBT SO (cea Study Abroad) – 0-2

Team ZBT SR (TOW Caps) – 0-2

 

That’s it for this week. See you back on April 9!
