In their first conference game of the season, the Waldron Lady Bulldogs scored a HUGE victory. Winning 16-2 against the Lincoln Lady Wolves, Waldron upgrades
“The girls were pumped to set the tone for our conference season,” explains Coach Bailey Moore. “Coach Southard and I have worked hard to get players into the right position in the batting line up and I feel like we are really finding our bats. Ashton Young went 5/5 as a leadoff and you can’t ask for better than that. She is getting the job done. We have been able to get our bats going and they are becoming more aggressive on the bases. The girls ended up with several doubles because they didn’t hesitate to challenge the defense.”
Running like the wind with three runs was Kelsey Yother. With two runs each was Mackinzie Callahan, Saige Mahar, Whitney Richmond, Ashton Young, and Jayden Manning. And turning out one run each was Rheagan Sanford, Ashtyn Moore, and Bayleigh Lipham.
Having more swings than the 1920’s swing dancing era was Ashton Young with five hits, Whitney Richmond with three, Bayleigh, Mackenzie, and Saige with two each, and with one apiece was Rheagan, Ashtyn, and Jayden. Gaining success in the putouts department with 18 total was Rheagan, Bayleigh, Saige, Ashton, Jayden, Taylor Stacy, and Kadence Espinoza.
The Lady Bulldogs will be facing the Acorn Lady Tigers next on Monday, March 11 in an away non-conference game at 4:30 p.m. “Acorn is always a talented team. They were a very good hitting team and quick on the bases the last time we faced. I have no doubt they will be a great challenge for us. If we show up focused, it should be a game to watch! We always look forward to facing off with them!”
