Softball team continues to gain experience

Coach Micki Templeton’s Brady Lady Bulldog softball team lost a close one to Ingram Tuesday night, 15-14. The team’s overall record is 3-10. “We had a great offensive performance with eight hits, but our defense committed 13 errors. We continue to struggle on fielding the ball cleanly,” she said. “We will continue to focus on the fundamentals of fielding, catching and throwing so that our skills get better,” she added. Templeton’s squad is very young and they need to keep their heads up. “Adri Villarreal and Chelsea Hail did a good job of throwing strikes. I’m very proud of my young pitching staff,” the coach said. On Feb. 26, the Lady Dogs defeated Miles, 16-4. The team only had six errors, and three pitchers, Villarreal, Alexia Beckford and Hail, did a fine job. On March 1, the team was in the San Angelo Umpires Tournament where they played three pool games that were 55 minutes or four innings, whatever came first. In the first game, they defeated Cornerstone, playing two innings, 15-0. In the second game, the Brady girls faced Grape Creek, and lost 7-3, playing three innings. In the third game, the Lady Dogs fell to Central JV, 10-1. “Overall, I felt like we played two really good games. We are gaining experience with each game,” Templeton said. On March 2, the team faced Coahoma JV and lost, 13-0. In the second game, the Brady team took Lakeview JV, 9-7. On March 3, the team played two games and lost both of them. In the first game they fell to Coahoma JV, 22-2, and in the second they played Crane for third place, but lost, 12-3. “I am truly proud of these young ladies for all their hard work and determination to get better. In the end, it is just a game, and the ladies need to enjoy it and have fun,” she said.
