Lady Cats Softball Coach David Carrillo said the Lady Cats just did not play well in their 9-1 Senior Night loss to Mount Pleasant Tuesday night, April 16, at Lady Cat Park.
Both teams are now tied for first place with 7-2 records. If both teams win their final district game on Thursday, both teams will be co-champs. Mount Pleasant would be the district’s #1 playoff seed because of their two wins over the Lady Cats in district play.
Coach Carrillo said it was tough watching his seniors go out on Senior Night like that. He said a team is not going to win getting just two hits. He said Mount Pleasant just hit the ball better than the Lady Cats did. Coach Carrillo said the Mount Pleasant pitcher seems to have the Lady Cats’ number this season. The Lady Cats have collected only five hits and scored only two runs over 14 innings in their two losses to Mount Pleasant.
He said the Lady Cats need to move on and do it real quick because they have a key game Thursday at Texas High. If the Lady Cats lose Thursday, they would have to have a second and third playoff seed determining game on Monday against Texas High.
