On the surface, Refugio's Class 2A regional quarterfinal series against Danbury seems ugly. Danbury swept the Bobcats by margins of 11-1 and 15-2. But a closer look gives Refugio more than a glimmer of promise for next season. The Bobcats went three rounds deep in the playoffs this season after being eliminated in the second round last season. Refugio's three starting pitchers will return next season. If they continue to play good defense and improve their situational hitting, the Bobcats could make a longer run next season. Elsewhere, Thorndale swept Ganado 14-4 and 7-0 in their Class 1A regional quarterfinal series. Hallettsville must win two games against Rogers in its Class 2A regional quarterfinal series on Saturday in Brenham. The Brahmas lost the first game 14-1.
