The Waxahachie Lady Indians varsity softball team run-ruled the Arlington Seguin Lady Cougars 15-0 in three innings in Friday’s district game at home.
The win not only put another “W” in the win column but was a moral victory for the team as well, the Lady Indians’ senior third baseman, and University of Louisiana Monroe commit, Cheyenne Fults said.
“Tonight built up a lot of people’s confidence and we brought our bats alive, which is a good thing, because we need to hit,” Fults said. “It’s going to be a hitting match in our next game against Lake Ridge. Lake Ridge is going to be tough, because they’re a lot like us. They’re scrappy and don’t stop playing until the game is over.”
Fults, who hit a home run for Waxahachie in the win over the Lady Cougars, wasn’t the only player who stepped up to the plate for the Lady Indians, head coach Steve Howell said.
“I’m pretty sure Miranda Herron was perfect at the plate,” Howell said. “Courtney Gonzales had some big hits too.”
The Lady Indians will have a bye on Tuesday before they see a tough Mansfield Lake Ridge team on Friday, he said.
“We’re open on Tuesday, so we’ll have a little bit of practice time to get ready for Lake Ridge on Tuesday and we’re looking forward to get that opportunity,” he said. “We put a lot of great things together tonight. Our pitching and defense was good; we didn’t have any big errors. I thought our outfield did a great job of communicating and I thought Cheyenne made some big plays at third, as well. Ashley Graham put together some big plays for us at second base too.”
First pitch is at 7 p.m. on Friday against the Mansfield Lake Ridge Lady Eagles.
