"It would just show a lot of the girls that you can chase your dreams. Even if it takes a lot of work, it will pay off," said senior Sarah Popeney.

The all-girls private high school has been on Crawford Street before Minute Maid Park was Minute Maid Park, and it was still just a train station.

"I've been watching my whole life, and they went to the World Series the year I was born. They went to the World Series a few years ago, and I am really hoping they make it this year," said junior Sarah St. John.

For most Houstonians, cheering on the Astros is a family affair.

"I am sporting my mom's Astros shirt," said senior Elizabeth.
