When one hears about the Waxahachie Lady Indians that the Lady Cats’ softball team will be playing in an Area game Saturday at 6 p.m. at North Forney, they sound just like the Lady Cats. However Lady Cats Coach David Carrillo says there are some subtle differences that should gave his team an advantage.
Coach Carrillo says Waxahachie is a young teams and a good hitting team. He adds the offensive strength of the Lady Indians mainly comes from their first five hitters. The main Waxahachie pitcher is a sophomore. Coach Carrillo says the pitcher does a good job of moving the ball around. He says she doesn’t throw that hard but has good off speed stuff that she will use to try and get Lady Cats’ batters to chase after.
As for differences, Waxahachie played Whitehouse last year and the Whitehouse coach told Coach Carrillo that the Lady Indians are just about a carbon copy of the Lady Cats. However the Whitehouse coach added that the Lady Cats seem to have a little better hitting lineup. Coach Carrillo says even though the Lady Indians are a fourth playoff seed in their district, they actually tied for the third spot but were bumped to fourth when they lost a coin flip. Waxahachie finished behind two very tough teams: Mansfield Timberview and Ennis. Coach Carrillo says he likes how his Lady Cats’ team is playing right now. He says his team will be ready Saturday night.
