The Lady ‘Dawgs fell to Class 4A #2 Prague Monday, 17-6.
“We just were not efficient at the plate. We had bases loaded twice but no runs scored,” head coach Monty Ervin said.
Lexington finished the game with 12 hits with Brodie Anderson leading the way with three. Izzy Pack, Abby Sample and Lexie Torres had two each.
Despite three homeruns in the game, the Lady Bulldogs couldn’t pull out the win.
Anderson and Sample each had a long ball in the fourth innings. Kieley Givens hit it out in the fifth.
Last week, Lexington was in the Washington tournament. They were a host site for pool play games with Southmoore, Lindsay and Cache on Thursday.
They went 1-2 in pool play, losing 16-6 to Southmoore, winning 9-7 over Lindsay and losing 17-4 to Cache.
They picked up an 11-10 win over a good Davis team, according to Ervin, but lost to Dibble, 7-4, to end their tournament play.
“We’re hitting over .400 as a team, but not getting that key hit when we need it,” Ervin said.
Despite an up and down tournament, Ervin is pleased with his team.
“We’re really young and we have to continue to learn to win. We played with some tough teams, but we couldn’t respond when we needed to.”
Ervin said he continues to see improvement. He mentioned Baylee Rillema.
“Baylee is stronger physically and mentally and she’s done well, despite being moved to a few positions that she has little comfort playing,” Ervin said.
He also mentioned junior Abby Sample.
“Abby has pulled her load all season. She’s come around leaps and bounds.”
The Lady ‘Dawgs have Little Axe today (Thursday) then Blanchard on Monday for senior night.
They will be at Norman North next Tuesday for double header to conclude the regular season.
Lexington will be in Hobart next Thursday for Districts with the Bearcats and Minco.
The Bulldogs will play Minco at noon.
“Our nucleus is right on track to go make some noise in Districts. If we can go together and put it all together, we’ll walk into Regionals.”
Lexington was beat out of Districts last year by Colera.
