The Lady Cats’ softball team won a pair of scrimmage games Saturday (January 26) at Pittsburg defeating the host, 4-0 and then Longview, 1-0. Lady Cats Coach David Carrillo said he thought the team played pretty well for a first scrimmage. He said the Lady Cats moved the ball around a little bit in the first game but then struggled in the second game.
Coach Carrillo said the team finally got to play on a field and to face live pitching. In the 4-0 win over Pittsburg, Lady Cats pitcher Bailey Haggerty allowed only a single hit and struck out five. The Lady Cats collected six hit and scored a single run in the second inning and three big runs in the fourth inning.
For the Lady Cats Alli Fite, Sierra Smith and Sadie Stroud all had two hits. Smith had 2 RBI’s as did Maddie Millsap. In the win over Longview, pitchers Tessa Holt and freshman Addison Caddell combined for a one-hit shutout. Holt had 2 strikeouts and Caddell had one. The Lady Cats got a run in the fourth inning. Stroud and Brinkley Driver had the hits and Driver got the RBI.
Weather permitting, the Lady Cats will play two scrimmage games in Forney Monday. The Lady Cats play the defending state champs Forney at 4 p.m. and then Plano East right after the first game. Saturday the Lady Cats have their Rockwall scrimmage facing the host at 11:45 a.m. and then The Colony at 1:30 p.m.
