The Lady Cats’ softball team opens their best two out of three bi-district series with Lovejoy on this Thursday (April 26) game day.
Game one is at the Lovejoy softball field in Lucas beginning at 7 p.m.. This will be the third time in recent years that the Lady Cats and Lady Leopards have met in bi-district. The two teams also faced each other last year. The Lady Leopards won the series two games to none winning at Lovejoy and at Lady Cat Park. The two teams also had a bi-district series in 2012. The Lady Leopards won that one two games to one winning at Lady Cat Park, losing at Lovejoy and winning again at Lady Cat Park by one run in a slugfest, 10-9). The Lady Leopards are 18-11 this year and they are their district’s fourth place team. The Lady Cats are 24-5 and they are district champs.
Lady Cats Softball Coach David Carrillo says this year’s Lovejoy team is quite different from last year’s very good team. However he says Lady Leopards Coach Jeff Roberts does a good job with the team and adds the Lady Cats will need to bring their A game Thursday to win. Coach Carrillo tells his team that now the season gets fun. He says after last year’s series loss to the Leopards, the Lady Cats want to earn some respect and get some payback. Coach Carrillo says the Lady Cats are playing with a lot of confidence.
