The Lady Tigers softball team may have swung the bat for the last time, but for many of the players, there is always next year.
The last two games for the Lady Tigers didn’t end well for the team, including the district game this past Wednesday at Platte City against Liberty North.
During their last regular game of the season last week, the first inning against the Pleasant Valley Roosters looked promising for the Lady Tigers softball team.
The team took a 1-0 lead in singles in the first inning thanks to strong hitters Samantha Lewis and Cara Zacny, Coach Aaron Holst said.
But the Rooster responded with four runs and never looked back, finishing with a 13-2 victory.
“Pleasant Hill is a very good hitting team,” Coach Holst said.
Wednesday’s district match-up with Liberty North concluded almost the same with Liberty North winning 10-2.
“We had a chance to get out, but we just couldn’t that third out in the field.” Coach Holst said.
The players, both varsity and JV, have been successful with developmental strides in the game, Coach Holst added.
