In back to back home conference games against West Fork and Elkins, the Waldron Lady Bulldogs subdued their opponents and remained in control of their winning streak. With only 14 girls on the roster, the Lady Bulldogs are proving that it’s not the size of the team that matters but the amount of heart and dedication that is put into the game.
Waldron completely shut out the Lady Tigers winning 10-0 in just four innings. Locking down the runs were Rheagan Sanford, Taylor Stacy, and Kelsey Yother with two each. And with one run apiece was Mackinzie Callahan, Ashtyn Moore, Bayleigh Lipham, and Jayden Manning. Leading her team with five putouts was Kaydance Espinoza.
The Lady Bulldogs kept the ball rolling the next night against the Lady Elks as Waldron won 15-5 within five innings. Leading with three runs individually was Rheagan Sanford and Saige Mahar. Ashtyn Moore and Whitney Richmond secured two hits apiece. Mackinzie Callahan brought in four putouts. And pitcher Ashton Young made 86 pitches to 26 batters striking out three.
At 7-3 in total season play, it’s looking like nothing and no one is going to stop this softball hurricane known as the Lady Bulldogs. The girls will cool their heels for a few days and then get back to the chopping board on Tuesday, March 26 when they head to Greenland and attempt to make the Lady Pirates jump ship at 4:30 p.m.
