Lady Longhorns Stumble through Seventh Inning Stretch

Written By Jasmin Lopez, JHS Journalism Sophomore

The Lady Longhorn softball team fell short this week as they went on the road to play Chandler and Washington. As the season comes to a close, Jones has a chance to finish the season on a high note with Harrah and Luther coming up. 

Not having the bats to back themselves up, they played a defensively sound game at Chandler. The Lady Longhorns kept up their hopes when the game was 1-0, but with 2 costly errors Chandler was able to take the game 3-0. 

The Lady Longhorns struggled on the field and in the batter’s box. With no exceptional plays, they lost by a devastating 11-0. Trying her best, Jaelen Maples had a heads up play at shortstop for the 6-2 put out. Caley, their senior star player, went 2 for 3 a first bat double off the left center wall. 

With two games left in the regular season before the playoffs, the Lady Longhorns have a chance to finish the season on a high note as they play Harrah on Monday and Luther on Tuesday.
