The Mansfield Lady Tigers Softball Team is clocking in and ready to get to work on the ball fields. Tonight they will brave the cold and knock out their first game of the season. Playing in an away game, Mansfield will take on Northside with game time at 5 p.m.
“I feel confident our girls will come out and perform well,” says Head Coach Kent Elmore. “We have had a total of 3 outside practices so we are going to use the next 5-6 games to really get a feel of who we are as a team.”
“We return 7 starters and that will give us a boost as far as managing the game. My seniors have done a great job of stepping up and being leaders to their underclass teammates.” The seniors playing for the Lady Tigers this year are Kylie Eveld, Caroline Nicodemus, Rylea Weaver, and Shyann McDowell. “My seniors are all 4-year starters and that will help us win some of those close battled games. I look forward to learning more about our team throughout our non-conference games.”
