Lady Cats Softball Coach Has Familiar Foe to Prepare For This Week
The Wildcats’ baseball team got to relive the past last week playing old district foe Hallsville. The Lady Cats’ softball team has the same situation this week. Lady Cats Softball Coach David Carrillo said he looks forward to the opportunity of playing in the third round of the playoffs. Hallsville’s coach is Kayla Whatley, who Coach Carrillo knows well. He predicts a really great series is about to unfold. Coach Carrillo said the Lady Bobcats are well coached and they have good players. He said the teams know each other well from being in the same district for so long. Coach Carrillo said the two teams have had some epic battles. He said he feels good about the Lady Cats’ chances on Thursday and Friday (May 9-10). The teams play their regional quarterfinal series Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Grand Saline, then Friday at 5:30 p.m. at Grand Saline. Game three, if needed, will take place after game two. Coach Carrillo urges fans to bring lawn chairs because seating is limited. Last year, in district play, the Lady Cats won at Hallsville, 7-3 but then suffered their only district loss to Hallsville at Lady Cat Park, 10-4. Coach Carrillo said both teams have a lot of the same kids they had last year.
