Lady Cats Coach Carrillo Liked His Team’s Poise in Game One Win at Whitehouse
Lady Cats Softball Coach David Carrillo said his team came out relaxed and not feeling pressure Thursday night (April 25) as the Lady Cats defeated Whitehouse, 14-4 at Whitehouse. He said the Lady Cats took care of business and showed no panic even when the game was close early. Coach Carrillo said he wasn’t surprised his team handled first game playoff jitters since they are a veteran team with lots of experience. A highlight of the game was Sadie Stroud’s inside the park home run. Coach Carrillo said as he motioned for her to head home, she looked at him as if to say, “are you sure?”. Coach Carrillo took an aggressive approach when the Lady Cats got on base. He called a lot of steals and sent many runners home coming from second base. All of them scored. Coach Carrillo said the playoffs are a new season and he added there is no reason to hold things back. He said freshman Addison Caddell would pitch Friday night in game two of the series at Lady Cat Park. First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
