Lady Cats Coach David Carrillo said his Lady Cats played well in the tournament for the most part. Rather than wins and losses, Coach Carrillo said he is more concerned with the team learning and getting better. He said his team got better during the six game tournament. He said the Lady Cats are doing all that he is asking of them.
Coach Carrillo called his team’s record, a good 8-8, indicating that the Lady Cats have played some good teams.
He said he wants to have his team ready by the start of district play. District play begins on March 24 as Royse City is coming to town.
Saturday’s last tournament game was a bummer for the Lady Cats as they were defeated handily by Sachse. Before the Lady Cats last at bat, trailing 11-1, Coach Carrillo challenged them to do what they could to get better. The Lady Cats responded with some hard hits base hits as they scored 4 runs.
Coach Carrillo said he is proud of his pitchers Addison Caddell and Denver Wyatt, who he said continue to battle in the circle. He said the offense is trying to make contact and get on base.
He said the team’s attitude, for the most part, has been good. Coach Carrillo said he is encouraging his players to operate out of love and to learn how to have mercy and grace for each other. He said if they learn that, they will be winners. He said he likes where the team is at, considering the loss of 10 seniors off of last year’s team.
The Lady Cats play a non-district game at Sherman Tuesday night.
