The Waldron Lady Bulldogs are sitting rather nicely at 2-3 on their total play record for the season. Whether it be the cold temperatures or away game road trips, the girls are really giving it their all and following through until the end no matter how hard a game gets.
Over this past weekend on March 1-2, the Lady Bulldogs took the two hour plus long trip to Ashdown to show off their skills in the weekend tournament. While there they played Queen City, Bradley, and Horatio.
“The first game against Queen City was very winnable but our girls were jet-lagged from the trip and took a long time to get warmed up,” explains Coach Bailey Moore. “We beat ourselves really.” Waldron ended up losing 7-2.
“We won the second game against Bradley 9-8. The third game Horatio gap hit us to death and we ended up getting beat 16-2. They were the strongest offensive team we have seen. We put runners in scoring position several times against a very good pitcher and defense but only managed to drive in a few of them.”
“By the end of the tournament, we looked much more stable on the bases. Coach Southard and I learned a lot about what our starting lineup should look like going into next week. We play Danville on Tuesday & then our first conference game on Friday is against Lincoln. I’m confident this weekend helped us to grow and we will see that more as this season goes on!”
On Tuesday, March 5, the Lady Bulldogs will face off against the Lady Little Johns in Danville at 4:30 p.m.
