There’s nothing soft about the Lady Bulldogs Softball Team. These girls know that if they want to earn a win, they have to work hard and get dirty. And that’s just what they did Tuesday night against the Mena Lady Bearcats.
Sitting at a 2-2 tie in the first inning, Waldron was able to hold Mena to only one more run in the third inning. By the fifth inning, the Lady Bulldogs knocked out three more runs ending the game with a much deserved 5-3 win.
Leading her team in batting was junior Bayleigh Lipham with three out of three. Sophomore pitcher Ashton Young hit three out of four. Senior Whitney Richmond and sophomore Rheagan Sanford both hit two out of four. And batting one out of four was senior Mackinzie Callahan, freshman Ashtyn Moore, and junior Taylor Stacy.
Head Coach, Bailey Moore, explains her Lady Bulldogs road to victory, “We were finally able to find some gaps and put hits in play with runners on! We only had 3 fielding errors and even a few of those we made a play out of. We took them 3 up 3 down in the 7th to finish the game!”
“We play Springhill for the first game at Ashdown. We don’t know much about them or the teams they have played before so we are going to prepare for anything and be ready to face the challenge!”
The Waldron Lady Bulldogs will play next in the Ashdown Tournament on Friday, March 1 at 5:30 p.m.
