During the offseason, the Bryan baseball team looked for ways to improve its game, especially at the plate. The Vikings found it. Bryan began using Win Reality in November. The virtual reality program simulates pitches and allows players to improve their ability to track them. Head coach James Dillard said the Vikings’ main reason for using Win Reality was to combat bad weather, which can make it hard to practice outdoors consistently, but now it’s a tool they use to approach their games differently. “We could see 20 pitches in a matter of five minutes, so when guys are struggling at the plate or if they need to hit and can’t do it outside due to the weather, this allows our guys to get in extra at-bats,” Dillard said. “I think this has helped us become a better hitting team, because we’re seeing different pitches. We’re seeing simulations of guys throwing at us, and there’s so much more it could do. It helps us lay off pitches that we may have swung at in previous at-bats.”...

Bryan Vikings traveled to Langham Creek Tuesday evening for a key district matchup. After a scoreless first hale, it looked like it was going go to be a dejavu 0-0 game from their earlier contest. The Vikings continued to used the second half wind to their advantage and in the 77th minute, Christian Alor broke free on a breakaway and found Rony Puerto, on his right flank, in a better position to net the goal for the lone score of the game. The Vikings held on the final minutes of the game to secure the 1-nil victory. It was a total team effort on the field to battle the full 80 minutes against the Lobos. Josue Gonzalez in goal for the shutout. JV Blue lost 3-0 to the Lobos; Matthew Gibson, Bryce Luckie, and Aidan Posada played well for the Vikings. Chandler Freeman in goal JV Silver lost 4-0 to the Lobos; John Michael Torres and Aziel Obregon had a good game for the Vikings. Alexys Ramirez in goal.

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.”...
