Lady Lakers hang tough but fall
In May 5 Issue

Coach Stephanie McGowan’s Lady Laker softball team fell at district foe Clinton County last Thursday 11-7 after a back and forth game.

Russell County scored 2 in the 2nd inning, 2 in the 4th, 2 in the 5th and 1 in the 7th.  The Lady Bulldogs scored 1 in the 1st inning, 1 in the 3rd, 3 in the 5th and 6 big runs in the 6th inning.

“There definitely wasn’t a dull moment in the game,” McGowan said.

“It went back and forth all the way down to the wire.  It seems like these two teams bring out the best in each other.  No matter what happens, neither one will roll over and die, it is a constant battle to the end.”

She said the team is looking forward to seeing how the next game will end up Thursday at Lady Laker Field.

In the game Baylee Hadley- went 1-3 with a double, Brittany Simpson went 2-4, Sara McClure went 2-4 and Tessa Potter went 1-3 with 2 RBIs.

The Lady Lakers also lost a tough one on the road Monday as they fell 8-6 to Lincoln County to put their varsity record at 4-13 on the season.

Baylee Hadley was 2-2, Abby Adams was 2-4 with 2 doubles and 2 RBIs, Tessa Potter was 2-4 and Taylor Irvin was 2-4 with an RBI.

“The score doesn’t do justice for last night’s game,” she said. “The girls played very well.  They hit the ball very well.  They were really aggressive on the bases.  There were a lot of things that we have been working on that they finally displayed in the game.  We tested Lincoln a lot, their throws, their focus.  A couple times they got us, a couple times they didn’t.

“Over all, we were happy with the performance.  Not happy with the loss, but happy with some things that we saw going on.  Abby Adams, Baylee Hadley and Tessa Potter’s bats are on fire right now.  It was nice to see them put some hits together.”

The Lady Lakers have rescheduled Clinton and Cumberland for a home game  this Thursday. The first game at 5 p.m. will be Clinton while Cumberland will follow at 6:30 p.m.
