In their home opener this past Tuesday night, the Lady Gladiators dominated the Palmer Lady Bulldogs. They won the contest 9-0 giving senior pitcher, Megan Richards, a shutout for her stat book.
Freshman, Madison Washington did her part in securing the win by providing 6 RBIs. Sophomore, Paige Westbrook and senior, Alma Suaste each had 2 RBIs each. Doubles were hit by Washington, Westbrook and Megan Richards. The bats were on fire and everyone did their part.
- Top Batting Averages
- Madison Washington – 666
- Paige Westbrook – 500
- Megan Richards – 333
- Alma Suaste – 333
- Katie Byers (junior) – 333
Game highlight would have to be the pick-off play where junior, Alyssa Richards threw down to third baseman, Byers, to catch an unsuspecting runner before she could tag up. This came during the Lady Bulldogs last at-bat of the game. Earlier in the contest, freshman, Tara Wallis made a high fly-ball catch showing her skills as an outfielder.
Good luck to the Lady Gladiators as they travel to Waco this weekend to compete in the Waco Midway varsity tournament.
