Lady Roos top Lamar, celebrate Senior Night


The Roos (7-4) are at North Crowley on Tuesday, with a 7 p.m. start, and look to improve district standing in their final three games.


Bearcats’ steady scoring ends contest in sixth against Wyatt

Boosted by doubles from Bearcats Conner Duer, Matt Dumm and Garrett Uhl, Tyson Mauser also hit a home run in Aledo’s District 7-4A contest against O.D. Wyatt on Friday at Bearcats Field. 

Scoring four runs in the second and two runs each in three of the next four frames, Aledo retired Wyatt in six innings with a 10-0 final score.

Mark Swift kept the Chaparrals at bay for five and a third innings with his mound work, limiting Wyatt to two hits and fanning eight batters. Aledo’s Braden Orwick took care of the final two outs of the sixth inning in relief.

Colton Clanton held the South Hills Scorpions’ batters to a paltry two hits on Tuesday, while Aledo hitters were having a field day banging out 12 hits, including a pair of doubles Mauser, who had four hits on the night in a 9-0 win.


Another brief outing for Aledo in 18-0 blanking of Lady Chaps

The Aledo Ladycats opened the scoring with eight runs in the first frame on Friday, in a District 7-4A match at home against Fort Worth’s O.D. Wyatt.

Haley Bowden led off the inning with a single, and was the first and last run to cross the plate in the frame. Bowden scored on Rhylie Makawe’s triple and hit a 3-run homer as the Ladycats batted around in the order.

The second at bat for Aledo produced 10 runs, and Aledo starter Tori Gore faced the minimum nine batters in the run-rule shortened game, striking out seven.

Aledo hitters had their way with the Wyatt defense, hitting three doubles, three triples and two home runs.

The 12-0 Ladycats travel to play at Granbury on Tuesday, returning home next Friday for the district finale, and Senior Night.

    That coaches will move on, due to advancement of career, life changes or a myriad of other influences, is a given. Aledo is not immune to the turnover, but is year-in and year-out apt to experience very modest changes, due to another myriad of positive factors.
