Gavin Alvarez and Sean Farrell Signing NLIs with Ranger College

Alvin High School seniors Sean Farrell and Gavin Alvarez signed National Letters of Intent (NLIs) to play on baseball scholarships at Ranger College. The signing ceremony was held at Alvin High School on May 26 with approximately 100 attendees.

Earlier in the year, Alvin Baseball senior Gunner Olszewski signed an NLI scholarship offer with Bemidji State University.

Alvin High School and the entire Alvin community wishes all three players success at the next level. If they continue to play with the drive and determination that they brought to the field at Alvin, they and their teams will exceed expectations.

22-6A All-District Selections

Congrats to the Yellowjackets on a Great Season

The whole of Alvin is proud of each and every Alvin Yellowjacket. The boys played with more precision and went further than anyone predicted–except them.

With a 15-1 district record, the Jackets went into the playoffs the undisputed champs of District 22-6A, in part by shutting out Pearland in their second match. With only six seniors graduating this year, Alvin brings a lot of experience back in 2016.

Alvin Yellowjackets Sting Pasadena Eagles 13-3

The Alvin Yellowjackets got the win over the Pasadena Eagles in six innings last night in Pasadena. Gavin Alvarez was a single short of hitting for the cycle, but ironically, it was his three-RBI triple that resulted in a 13-3 run-rule of the Eagles to end the game before he had the Alvin vs. Pasadenaopportunity for another at bat.

Corben Henry got the win with five innings of work, allowing only three hits and three walks. Cody Howell pitched to four batters in final-inning relief, striking out two and allowing no hits or runs. Every Yellowjacket batter reached in the contest, and none recorded strikeouts.

Notable offense includes Alvarez: 3-4, HR, triple, double, 7 RBI, 2 runs; Gunner Olszewski: 2-4 (including a bunt single), RBI, 2 runs; Henry: 2-3, sac bunt, 2 runs; Sean Farrell: 2-4, RBI, 2 runs; Beau Olsovsky: double; Logan Haley: double, 2 RBI, run.

Notable defense includes three putouts by Gavin Alvarez (RF); a 6-4-3 double play turned by Rico Luna (SS), Nathan Collins (2B), and Logan Haley (1B); and an outfield assist from centerfield to home from Sean Farrell (CF) to Beau Olsovsky (C).

The Yellowjackets meet the South Houston Trojans Tuesday, March 31 at 7:00 p.m. at Nolan Ryan Field.
