Plano West's effort to come back from down five runs in the third inning came up just short as they fell 5-4 to New Braunfels in their first tournament game on Friday. The Wolves scored four runs in the failed comeback on a double by senior Brooke Hilton in the third, and RBI singles by freshman Abby Jennings and junior Carra Cleaves in the fifth; tallying a third run with freshman Abby Cuellar's fielder's choice.


Junior M.C. Pollacia started the game in the circle for the Wolves, but Cleaves took the loss. The Wolves racked up a total of eight hits. Hilton went 3 for 3 in the game, including her double, and sophomore Elyse Mikes managed multiple hits as well.
