Saltillo Lady Lions Softball Wins District Championship

Saltillo’s softball team scored efficiently and often to get a big 17-2 win over Yantis on Tuesday, Apr. 20.

The win clinched the district 17-1A championship for the Saltillo Lady Lions.

The Lady Owls scored their only runs of the game in the bottom of the third, as they got two runs home to make it an 11-run, 13-2 deficit.

Saltillo’s offense added on a run and three more in the fourth and fifth en route to a smashing 17-2 victory over the Yantis Lady Owls in Winnsboro.

Chandler Bain got the win, pitching a complete 5 inning game, allowing only 2 runs while striking out 4 and walking two.

In hitting, Chandler Bain went an astounding 4 for 4 at the plate with one walk. Julianna Giles did not fare as well, going 0 for 3. Ryleigh Redar went 3 for 4 on offense, and was walked once. Paisley Kastner had a respectable 2 for 5 offensive output, and Maddy Smith was an impressive 3 for 4 with one walk.

Regan Speir went a perfect 3 for 3 at the plate with one walk. Gabby Ross was 3 for 4. Ofelia Cabrera batted 2 for 3 in the victory over Yantis with a walk. Calli Morris rounded out Saltillo’s offense going 1 for 4 at the plate.
