Snyder- The Lady Lobo Softball team came up a bit short last week with a
11-4 loss to the Clyde Bulldogs that ended their debut run through the
"The score didn't show how good the game was," said Coach Becky Melius,
"I feel we played our best defensive game. Our pitching was probably the
best. Clyde, from what I understand, is an incredible offensive team."
Kacey Huckabee was on the hill for the Green and gave up only nine hits
and six walks. Huckabee overcame a early home run to regroup and pitch a
solid game.
Monahans had a great defensive game. In the third inning third base man,
Mandie Balderaz, nailed a Bulldog heading for home to end the inning.
Eunice Trango snagged a low liner to steal a base hit in the fourth.
Left fielder Stacy Sotelo turned a double play off a tag up fly ball.
Center fielder Vicky Lopez made a shoestring catch then picked off a
runner headed for third. Sarah Carrel, with a diving effort, made a
fantastic play at catcher to throw out the batter.
Carrell also led the team in hitting with a 2/3 effort for the night.
The Ladies had eleven hits for four runs; six walks and four strike
outs, with three stolen bases.
The Ladies end their season 15-9 and look forward to a promising season
next year.
"I'm really impressed with everybody. I knew we could do it," said team
captain Kendra Vires, "We were all very dedicated and just because it
was our first year doesn't mean anything."
"We will have a great returning infield and lettermen next season ,"
said Melius, "I feel we have started a great tradition here. We would
like to thank all the local businesses, media, school board, booster
club and all out supporters for making our inaugural season a dream come
true. Without their help this season would not have been possible."
