Grab your bats and dust off your gloves because softball season is here. The Waldron Lady Bulldogs are ready to invade bases as they prepare for tonight’s first game of the season. The Lady Dogs will host the Dardanelle Sand Lizards tonight at 5 p.m.
The girls have spent the last few months practicing extremely hard and putting in long hours on the field. Starting off with a small roster and one pitcher, the team pulled together and embraced the challenge. Many girls stepped up to learn the pitching position as a back-up if needed and everyone has learned to play at least one secondary position as a precautionary. The heart that these girls already have before the season has even started, should tell tons about how their season will be played.
Head Coach for the Lady Bulldogs, Bailey Moore, had this to say about what’s in store for this year, “I am so anxious to start this season off. Dardanelle is always a solid team and this year will be no different. We have worked hard to improve our bats and to keep our defense in check. I have big expectations for our girls!”
“I have a team full of leaders this year. I have only two seniors and two juniors so we are relatively young but the girls have not let that stop them from stepping up when the team needs them! I could not ask for a better group of girls. They have put in the time asked of them plus some so I can’t wait to see their hard work pay off!”
