AUSTIN — Kellen Robles summed up her play in Smithson Valley's error-filled state semifinals win succinctly if not elegantly.
"I sucked," the junior center fielder said of her 0-for-3 performance. "We didn't want to end on what was our worst game of the year."
Instead, the Rangers ended their season in the best way, defeating Montgomery 9-8 for the Class 4A state championship at McCombs Field on Saturday. It's the third softball state title for Smithson Valley, and first since 2009.
