Pitcher Jessica Adams and the Bryan softball team mimicked the weather with a dreary start, but the Lady Vikings warmed up in a big way for a 10-3 victory over the Bastrop Cedar Creek Lady Eagles in the NFCA Texas Leadoff Classic on Thursday at Lady Viking Field. Adams hit the first batter the junior right-hander faced and Gabby Gomez followed with an RBI triple that helped the Lady Eagles take a surprising 2-0 lead in a game delayed several hours by inclement weather. “With the weather it’s, ‘Hey, we’re going to get out this time,’” Bryan coach Enrique Luna said. “Then, ‘No, we’re not.’ Plus, I mean, it got cold quickly.” The weather seemed to bother the Cedar Creek fielders as Bryan took a 3-2 lead in the second inning. Instead of being retired in order, Bryan’s first three batters reached on a weak grounder to first base, a grounder back to the pitcher and a sacrifice bunt. Cedar Creek muffed the catch on all three plays, and Bryan baserunners also took extra bases at will. The Lady Vikings took the lead when their No. 9 hitter struck out and the catcher threw the ball to first, allowing the runner to score. Bryan extended the lead to 5-2 as junior Jacque Adams, Jessica Adams and sophomore Alexis Rodriguez added hits. The Lady Vikings (2-0) put the game away with five more runs in the third. The bottom of the lineup set the tone with back-to-back, two-out singles by senior Natalia Garcia and freshman Makayla Marquez. Jacque Adams walked to load the bases, and her sister lined a shot over the fence in right-center field for a grand slam, the 21st homer of her career. Sophomore Kylie Hernandez followed with a solo shot to center field. “I was proud of our hitters there, the bottom of the lineup,” Luna said. “They started a little rally there. That was positive to see. We needed that jolt.”...

With the Bryan boys basketball team coming off an 0-2 showing in District 14-6A the previous week, Tuesday’s bye seemed to be just what the Vikings needed. Bryan got back on track Friday, draining six 3-pointers while holding Tomball Memorial to 17 points in the second half for a 63-38 win over the Wildcats at Viking Gym. The Vikings (11-13, 3-6) built a small cushion several times in the first half only for Memorial (3-21, 0-10) to get within a possession each time. The Wildcats even took a short-lived 21-20 lead with around two minutes left in the second quarter, but Bryan reeled off an 8-0 run, capped by a 6-0 spurt from junior guard Aleks Kalaouze, to take the lead for good just before halftime. Braedon Nutter hit a pair of free throws and a couple layups to start the third quarter on a 6-2 run to get the Wildcats within 30-27, but the Vikings responded with a knockout 15-2 run over the last five minutes of the period. “We needed that break,” Bryan head coach Jonathan Hines said. “It was good for the kids to have a night off and step away after a tough week, and they came back with some energy. Practice was really good this week. You wouldn’t have known that from the first half, but I think that’s because shots weren’t falling. The second half we picked it up, and that was good to see.” Junior guard Dom Caldwell hit a trio of 3-pointers during the key run, the third coming on a shot from the wing with a defender’s hand in his face. Tereus Henderson added a layup and a free throw, and Camden Gray capped the surge with a 3-pointer to make it 45-29. “I know if I’m hot, I’ve always got the green light. I just have confidence in myself and in my team, and I know we can do anything,” said Caldwell, whose game-high 15 points came on five treys. “I practice that [contested] shot a hundred times a day, so it’s just routine. I don’t even think about it.” The hot streak energized Bryan’s defense, which held Memorial to 13 of 51 on field goals, including 1 of 14 from beyond the arc, and forced 13 turnovers. Long rebounds and steals led to several easy baskets, as did the Vikings’ prowess from deep. Bryan hit 9 of 25 treys and started finding holes in the middle of the defense as Memorial closed out on shooters more aggressively. Sophomore Dylan Glover led Bryan with six assists, with several coming on passes to junior forward Rodney Johnson Jr. in the middle as defenders ran out to defend the 3. Johnson finished with a double-double of 13 points and 11 rebounds to go with a pair of steals, and Glover added nine points and three boards. “Unfortunately, too many times we rely on making big shots to give us our energy, and that’s what happened,” Hines said. “We were getting the same shots we were [in the first half], but the difference was they fell. So the kids got excited and playing with more energy, and that helped us on the defensive end. It should be the other way around, but that’s who we are [right now].” Kalaouze had a season-high eight points and added two assists and a steal, and senior guard JD Smith had eight points, four rebounds, three assists and three steals. Nutter led Memorial with 11 points, and Cory Reese added eight. Bryan continues 14-6A play at Langham Creek at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
