On the road at Calera, Lexington notched a 13-9 win over Holdenville.
But, they fell to Calera, 13-8 and 14-0, to end their season.
In the win over the Lady Wolverines, Lexington had 22 hits. Izzy Pack, Abby Turnpaugh, Ryli Harmon and Marissa Northrup led the way with three each.
Leslie Barber, Abby Sample, Abi Clifton and Baylee Rillema each had two.
The Lady ‘Dawgs jumped out in front with eight runs in the first inning. They added one in the fourth and fifth and four more in the sixth.
“I couldn’t have been happier with the game against Holdenville. We had hit after hit. We were patient at the plate and the score was a benefit of that,” head coach Steve Blair said.
The Lady ‘Dawgs took the momentum from the Holdenville win into their first game with Calera.
“We were right there with them, maybe 10-7, when they scored three more runs and ran away with the win.”
Lexington had 13 hits in the loss.
The Lady ‘Dawgs had five hits in the second loss to Calera.
“We had been out there all day and the first loss took the gas out of us.
“I’m pleased with how the girls came out to play. They were ready for the day when they got off the bus,” Blair said.
Lexington graduates four seniors. They are Promise Houck, Madilyn Dunn and three-year starters Turnpaugh and Harmon.
Despite losing some experience Blair believes that Lexington has a good nucleus and can use the momentum of the District tournament for next year.
“We talked about how they needed to have the confidence and excitement next year like they did getting off the bus for Districts.”
Blair, in a head coaching position for the first time in 25 years, has decided to retire for good.
“I’m getting a golf membership and planning to find a good fishing hole,” Blair said.
