Lady Cats softball got another win Tuesday, Mar. 22 in Marshall thanks to solid pitching and a grand slam.
Parris Pickett was the difference-maker on offense.
The SS recorded two hits in the game, both of which allowing at least one Lady Cat to cross home plate.
Her first hit was the biggest of the night, a gram slam that powered Sulphur Springs past Marshall 5-0 in the top of the 3rd.
While the Lady Mavs were able to put a run on the board in the bottom frame, Pickett’s second hit in the Lady Cats’ last at-bat put the game firmly out of reach, 6-1.
Coach David Carrillo’s squad rode the arm of Crimson Bryant, who struck out 17 Lady Mavs batters in the victory.
The junior pitched a full-game, allowing only three hits. Bryant struck out 17 Marshall batters for her fourth district win in five starts.
RF Kinz Smallwood Katie Johns managed a hit a piece for Sulphur Springs.
Tuesday’s win over the Lady Mavs gives softball a 15-1-2 record (5-0 district).
Next up, Sulphur Springs is at home on Friday, Mar. 25 hosting Pine Tree. That game tees off Friday at 6 P.M.
Friday’s home match with the Lady Pirates marks the end of the first half of district season for Lady Cats softball.
