The Lady Cats’ softball team dropped a pair of scrimmage games in blustery weather in Forney Monday. Forney, the defending Class 5A State Champion, topped the Lady Cats, 1-0. Class 6A Plano East downed the Lady Cats, 5-2.
In the Forney contest, the Lady Cats collected only 2 hits and they made 2 errors. Sierra Smith and Addison Caddell had the Lady Cats hits. Maddie Millsap, Brinkley Driver and Smith drew walks. Bailey Haggerty deserved a better fate in the circle. She allowed only 1 run and three hits over 4 innings.
Against Plano East, Tessa Holt pitched two innings and Caddell pitched the third inning. Plano East had a two-run homer in the top of the first but the Lady Cats got a run back in the bottom of the first. Plano East added three unearned runs in the third inning. The Lady Cats got a run in the bottom of the third. The game ended after three innings due to a time limit. Both teams got three hits and both teams made an error.
Lady Cats Coach David Carrillo said the Lady Cats’ error was partially due to the strong wind. Kelsey Wallace had two hits for the Lady Cats. Coach Carrillo said the Lady Cats played well against the two tough teams. He called the wind brutal and said it was very cold. The weather is expected to be warmer for a scrimmage Saturday in Rockwall. There might be a slight chance of rain.
The Lady Cats play host Rockwall and The Colony back to back starting at 11:45 a.m.
