Through the ups and downs that the season has had to offer, the Mansfield Lady Tigers never once gave up. Whether it was 20 degrees outside or their games got canceled or they played four games in five days, not once did you hear the Lady Tigers complain. They put a smile on their face, threw on their gear, and got the job done.
Mansfield has had four straight wins with zero plans of stopping now. The Lady Tigers started their District play on Wednesday, April 24 against Greenland. After completely dominating the Lady Pirates 10-0, the Lady Tigers leveled-up to the next round of play against West Fork. Last night, Tiger versus Tiger, scratched and clawed to keep their spot in District play.
But there can only be one and it was the Mansfield Lady Tigers that came out victoriously. Keeping the score tied for the first four innings, Mansfield refused to lose and secured the lead for a 6-5 win. Now sitting in the semi-finals, the 13-13 Lady Tigers will face the Charleston Lady Tigers tonight, April 26 in Greenland at 6 p.m. “Our team is playing good softball right now,” expressed Coach Kent Elmore. “Our girls are leaving everything on the field and cherishing every opportunity given to them. It has been really fun to see this team grow throughout the season.”
