The Waxahachie Faith Family Academy Lady Eagles are 3-0 to open the softball season picking up two wins against Trinity Christian and a win against Life School Dallas.
With an off week ahead due to spring break the Lady Eagles are resting before gearing up to make a run toward the playoffs with the start of district play near.
Earlier this week WFFA topped Trinity after overcoming a slow start.
Victoria Vroman, Sarah Bibi, Taylor Townsel, Lizette Sweeney and Othelia H-Payne had hits while Vroman stole a base, Townsel stole three and Sweeney stole two.
WFFA continued to run the bases well as Mary Tate stole two bases, Kaylee Cornuaud had two stolen bases, Bailey Young had one, Jenny Payne had three and Catherine Smith had one.
“Defensively they all played well and as always they played with class and character. Lizette pitched the entire game and struck out five and only walked one batter. She did a great job,” coach Shanna Kindrick said.
In the first meeting against Trinity the Lady Eagles pulled out an 18-4 victory.
WFFA jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead after one inning with Payne hitting a shot to the outfield for a double scoring two runs. Sweeney struck out two and Young made a routine out connecting with Cornuaud at first to end the inning.
By the bottom of the second inning, WFFA led 10-0 as Sweeney, Young and several others had hits while Payne and Smith had RBI.
The top of the third drew more hits and five more runs for WFFA while Trinity pushed across two on errors.
The hits continued in the fourth as WFFA added three runs to make the score 18-4 before closing out the game via the run-rule.
In their opening game of the season, the Lady Eagles defeated Class 2A’s Life School 26-16.
WFFA took an 8-3 lead after one before both teams score two runs in the second. In the third the Lady Eagles busted the game open with 10 runs to take a 20-5 lead. Life rallied to make it a 20-12 game before both teams scored in the fourth.
Needing four runs to have a chance at a run-rule victory the Lady Eagles scored four to win.
“We made some key plays, hit the ball really well, was very aggressive on the bases and had a great time. My girls played with class and character and the hard work that we have done to date really paid off,” Kendrick said.
WFFA ran wild with 41 stolen bases as two plays had six each while three others had five each.
District 12-A play opens soon against Itasca, Waxahachie Advantage, Grand Prairie Advantage and Covington.
