Editor, the Advocate:
A month ago, the East Titan baseball team's historic season came to an end in the 4A state championship game. While the Titans set many records throughout the season, including 30 wins and reaching the state tournament in Round Rock, we realize this would not have happened without the continuous and overwhelming support from our awesome fans and community, many of whom were right there with us every pitch of the way through the amazing playoff run.
We'd like to recognize and give a huge thank you to all our supporters: our VISD administration, East High School faculty and staff, our parents and boosters, the Victoria baseball community, the Victoria Advocate sports department, KAVU Newscenter 25 and the city of Victoria.
Many of you rallied around this team, packed Riverside Stadium and stadiums out of town and at times helped will this team to victory. The energy, passion and support portrayed by our beloved community was extremely humbling and overwhelming.
This was very evident when our community filled the 3B side of Dell Diamond during the 4A state championship game. Hopefully, that same energy, passion and support will carry over into the 2014-15 school year for all of VISD athletics.
Although we fell short of our goal of bringing the state championship back home, we left the stadium with our heads held high and proud to be the East Titans from Victoria.
Thank you once again for your continued support of VISD athletics.
Wes Kolle, head coach of the Victoria East Titans baseball team, Victoria
