Softball heads to North Lamar Tuesday

Coach David Carrillo’s squad heads to third place North Lamar on Tuesday, Apr. 11 for another district duel.

Sulphur Springs hopes to pick up another big win in Paris, last hosting Pittsburg on Thursday.

Lady Cats softball won big over the Lady Pirates, 10-0.

Coach Carrillo’s squad scored early and often in their blowout of Pittsburg.

It all started in their first at-bat, as Sulphur Springs put up five runs to go up big 5-0. Add in a two-run shot from Jadyn Harper, bouncing off the scoreboard in left field in the second inning, and before the Lady Pirates could blink twice they trailed 7-0.

Three more runs in the third saw the Lady Cats get the necessary total of points for a 10-run victory, but the Lady Cats still needed another scoreless inning to pull out the shutout.

Luckily for Coach Carrillo Crimson Bryant had another stellar outing in the circle, going four of five innings in the game and not allowing a hit nor run in her start.

The senior ace walked none and struck out 11 in her seventh straight district win starting for Sulphur Springs.

Abbey Goldsmith pitched the final inning and sent Pittsburg packing as the Lady Cats completed the 10-0 win over the visiting Lady Pirates on Thursday, Apr. 6.

Hitting highlights from the blowout over Pittsburg:

  • Emmerson Thompson (SS): 2 for 2, 3R, RBI
  • Jadyn Harper (CF): 3 for 3, 3R, 4RBI
  • Reese Ragan (1B): 2 for 3, R, 2RBI
  • Baylor Boatman (3B): 2 for 3, R, 2RBI

Friday’s win brings the softball team’s season record to 21-4 (7-0 district).

They look to keep the big wins coming when Coach David Carrillo’s squad heads to North Lamar (5-2) Tuesday for their third-to-last district game.

The Pantherettes are tied for second in 15-4A, but the last time Sulphur Springs played them the Lady Cats won big 12-2.

The softball duel tees off in Paris Tuesday, Apr. 11 at 6 P.M.
