Ladycats gear up for district play
The Cassville Ladycat softball team won one and lost one this past week, defeating Southwest 2-7 last Tuesday and then falling to Monett 0-4 on Thursday.
The Ladycats recorded no errors on their way to a big victory over the Lady Trojans. Lindsey Turner picked up the win, pitching five innings and giving up only three hits and no runs. Jaime Everett relieved, pitching the final two innings.
Cassville had nine hits in the contest to Southwest's seven, but the Ladycats' hits were timely. Courtney Beagle had a big home run in the sixth inning that broke open a 0-0 tie. Her homer brought in three runs.
Chelsea Krallman also had a good night at the plate, going three for four with one RBI and one run scored. Turner went two-for-four, and Dakota Bowman had a double that brought in two runs.
Against Monett, the Ladycats were only able to muster one hit from Bowman. The two teams kept the game scoreless until the fourth inning when the Lady Cubs managed to put three runs on the scoreboard followed by another in the fourth.
Jaime Everett took the loss for the Ladycats.
