Senior Night

Friday night, teammates, families, friends, and fans honored Bellaire Softball's two seniors: Ainsley Pinkerton and Mia Lopez. These girls have been an integral part of the team since their freshman year.

Congratulations to Ainsley and Mia on an amazing four years and all their accomplishments - both on and off the field!

April 12, 2024

Ainsley is our starting catcher, but is also a great utility player, having played at 3rd base, 1st base, and short stop... she plays wherever she's needed. Ainsley plans to attend the University of Arkansas, studying animal science. Her favorite Bellaire softball memory is when they beat Katy in the Area Playoffs, 2023.

Mia Lopez is our starting Center Fielder and leadoff batter. Mia plans to attend Colorado School of Mines where she will study electrical engineering and will also play softball there. Mia's favorite Bellaire softball memory is when they beat Katy in the Area Playoffs, 2023. It was Mia's throw from center field to 3rd base that got the tagged out, saving the win for Bellaire.

Bellaire Falls to #3 Pearland Oilers in Regional Semifinal

Thank you for your support!

A successful season came to an end on Friday night, May 19th, after Bellaire High School lost Game 1 (Thursday) and Game 2 (Friday) to the Pearland Oilers.

They were tough losses, but the Bellaire Cardinals have a lot to be proud of as they look back on their season. No one could've predicted they'd be playing in the Regional Semifinals for only the second time since 2014, with the other in 2018.

Congratulations on a successful season!

Bellaire Cardinals Stun Katy Tigers

Next Up: Round 3

Regional Quarterfinals

Amazing pitching, excellent defense, and one run was what it took for the Cardinals to advance on to next week's third round of playoffs: Regional Quarterfinals.

In David slew Goliath fashion, Bellaire went in as underdogs against a very solid top ten Texas team: the Katy Tigers. In the first inning, Claire Shelley got the only hit of the game with a single home run. Then solid pitching and defense held Katy to that score, despite the Tigers loading the bases and stranding runners in several innings.

As if each play of the game wasn't exciting enough, the 7th inning provide a grand Hollywood ending.The bottom of the 7th with two outs and runners on first and second, Katy drove one up the middle to centerfielder, Mia Lopez. Lopez was able to get the throw in to third baseman Bella Riviera, who got the tag down on the first base runner for the out... just inches before the tying run could cross home plate. A truly stunning finish to a truly stunning game!

Congratulations, Lady Cardinals!

Bellaire Softball Advances!

On to Area Playoffs

The Lady Cards will move on to area playoffs next week after beating the Memorial Mustangs. Bellaire won two close games in the best of three.

On Friday night the Mustangs took an early lead with a one-run homer the top of the 4th inning. The Cardinals took the lead the bottom of the 5th when Ainlsey Pinkerton doubled, driving in Ashely Burt and Mia Lopez. The next hit by Meaghan Lande brought in Nina Ozuna, for a 3-1 Bellaire lead. Bellaire maintained their lead despite Memorial scoring another run in the 6th inning, and extended it when Mia Lopez turned her double into a run around the bases on Mustang errors.

On Saturday Bellaire came from behind when Claire Shelley got the Lady Cardinals moving with a three-run homer in the 3rd inning. That was followed by several hits by the Bellaire Cardinals the next two innings, scoring another three runs. Despite a valiant effort by the Mustangs in the 7th inning, when they cut the lead to one run, the Lady Cardinals held them at 6-5.

Congratulations to Bellaire Cardinals Softball!
