Langham Creek Lobos preparing for first trip to state baseball tournament
For a team that wasn't even ranked to begin the season, it's quite remarkable for the Langham Creek Lobos to be making their first ever trip to the state baseball tournament.
"Especially when you're not expected to do anything," longtime Lobos head coach Armando Sedeno said. "When nobody has you out there (winning)."
"It's a cool feeling," Langham Creek senior pitcher/first baseman Brady Perez said. "Not every team gets to do this."
The Lobos will face Dallas Jesuit at noon in Round Rock in the state semifinals.
"You still have a challenge in front of you, that you don't really have time to absorb them (the wins) yet," Sedeno said.
Their journey through the playoffs has been a grind, with Langham Creek playing four consecutive three-game series that went the distance with the Lobos staving off elimination six times.
"We didn't feel like we were getting respected that way and now that we're getting some coverage, it's like we've always been here," Sedeno said.
Langham Creek won the regional final over the state's number one ranked team, Deer Park. They did so by winning in walk-off fashion in game two, then via a 4-0 shutout in the deciding game three, setting off a wild celebration.
"We knew we could do it, play our game, stay true to us," Perez said. "We knew we could get the job done."
