On KSST Radio and Cable Channel 18’s Saturday Morning Coaches Show last Saturday, Lady Cats Softball Coach David Carrillo talked about his team’s two ten-run-rule wins last week after an offensive power outage the Friday before. Back on March 29, the Lady Cats suffered their only district loss of this season losing 3-1 at Mount Pleasant. The Lady Cats got only three hits. Coach Carrillo said after that game, he felt his team had to refocus. Soon a scapegoat was found. Every one blamed an old pitching machine. It was put aside and Coach Carrillo said he went back to old fashion front tossing for batting practice. The results speak for themselves. Last Tuesday the Lady Cats collected 18 hits and defeated Texas High 15-5. Last Friday, the Lady Cats had 11 more hits in a 12-2 romp over Royse City. Coach Carrillo said the Lady Cats may bury the old pitching machine now that they all have found their hitting shoes. The win last Friday boosted the Lady Cats district record to 5-1. They clinched a playoff spot for the twelfth straight year. They also moved into a first place tie with Mount Pleasant after the Lady Tigers lost to Lindale. The Lady Eagles are one game behind at 4-2. This week the Lady Cats travel to Greenville Tuesday and then return home to face Lindale. Coach Carrillo knows Greenville is a pesky team and they have a pitcher that has given the Lady Cats some trouble in the past. Coach Carrillo pointed out two unsung heroes from last week: Sierra Smith who drove in six runs and made circus catches in the field against Texas High and Abbi Baier, who Coach Carrillo called a weapon as a pinch runner or courtesy runner. Coach Carrillo said he has ten seniors on this years team and he called them a special group. He said he liked the job Brinklee Driver is doing as catcher. He called her smart and said she works well with the pitchers
