It’s game day!!! The Waldron Lady Bulldogs are preparing to host the Lincoln Lady Wolves in tonight’s first conference game of the season. The last few games have had a rough ending for the Lady Bulldogs but no matter how many times they burst into flames, like a phoenix, they always rise from the ashes. These girls don’t know the definition of defeat. Only that on difficult days, diamonds are formed under pressure. And under pressure is where these girls thrive.
The Lady Bulldogs defeated the Lady Wolves last season with a 16-2 final score and this time around, they plan to repeat the same outcome. “When it comes to my girls, I am beyond proud,” exclaims coach, Bailey Moore. “Day in and day out they give me nothing but the best of themselves. We are battling at the moment but as soon as we find our bats and limit our errors, we will be on the right path. My sophomores, Ashtyn Moore and Kelsey Yother have really stepped up to the plate this season as well. These girls will keep pushing and keep working and when they lock it down, watch out!”
The Lady Bulldogs will go into conference play with a 2-4 season record. The Lady Wolves are 2-0 after defeating Ozark 9-5 in last Friday nights match-up. So get ready for a hard-fought battle tonight, March 10 when Waldron and Lincoln hit the field at 5 p.m for some down-home smash-mouth softball.
