Palmview has the experience and talent to continue their upward climb in the playoffs. Senior Leo Perez returns to lead the Lobos this season. Perez hit .489 with 33 RBI’s and 10 HR and was also 9-3 on the mound with an ERA of 1.78. Ismael Martinez also had a very good 2016 season hitting .409 with 16 RBI and 1 HR. Victor Flores (.338 with 13 RBI’s), Jesus Guzman (.357 with 10 RBI’s 1 HR and 3-1 on the mound with an ERA of 1.58), Anthony Rocha (.347 with 13 RBI’s), Andrew Puente (.288 with 8 RBI’s), and Elias Ovalle (.268 with 12 RBI’s 1 HR and 6-3 on the hill with an ERA of 2.46) round out the returning starters. Five returning lettermen and two solid newcomers will provide depth to the Lobos lineup. The Lobos defeated Eagle Pass in bi-district ( 3-5, 9-4, 10-0) in Area round defeated Hanna (4-3, 4-5, 10-0) before falling to Laredo United in two games (7-6, 7-2) in Regional Quarter-final action. The Lobos have finished (14-11) 2009 4th place; (6-22) 2010 7th place; (12-17) 2011 6th place; (9-16) 2012 5th place; (13-13) 2013 5th place; 2014 school record 26-4 1st place, 2015 21-7- 1 1st place and last season (20-13- 1) in 1st place. McAllen Rowe and McAllen High should be the teams along with Palmview battling for the district crown in 2017.
