Some of the parents of Lady Cats’ softball players organized a send off event as the team left Lady Cat Park on their bus headed for their game against Huntsville Wednesday evening at Whitehouse.
It gave the girls’ fans a chance to cheer the girls as they departed town.
The Lady Cats Softball Team does begin their best 2 out of 3 Regional Quarterfinal Series with Huntsville Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in Whitehouse.
Huntsville was a district champion and the Lady Cats were co-champs, Huntsville in District 16-5A and the Lady Cats in District 15-5A.
The Lady Hornets went 10-0 in district play and they are 28-5 for the season. Huntsville defeated Texas High and Forney to get to the Regional Quarterfinal. The Lady Hornets are ranked #7 in the State in Class 5A according to a Texas Girls Coaches Association Poll.
The Lady Cats were 11-1 in district play and they defeated Hallsville in a seeding game to earn the district’s number one seed. The Lady Cats downed Lufkin and Crandall to get to the Regional Quarterfinals. The Lady Cats are 26-3 for the season.
Lady Cats Coach David Carrillo says he has fond memories of the Whitehouse all-turf field. The Lady Cats defeated Whitehouse there in game one of a bi-district series in 2019, 14-4, in a game shortened to 5 innings due to the ten run rule.
The next day, at Lady Cat Park, the Lady Cats got a win to wrap up the series.
This marks the fifth time Coach Carrillo’s Lady Cats have made it to the Regional Quarterfinal round. Game two is at Rusk Friday at 6:30 p.m.
