Lady Roos sweep; Aledo run-rules Crowley

Brock advances with win over Whitney; Springtown bows to Iowa Park


Three hits producing as many RBIs off the bat of Megan Mason was the catalyst for the Ladycats, as they dispatched Crowley in a run rule-shortened contest, 16-1.

After priming the pump with two runs in the first, Aledo followed up with a handful of runs in the bottom of the second, and the rout was afoot.

Allie Arneson also had a multi-hit night for the Ladycats, including a double while Rhylie Makawe completed four trips around the base paths. Ally Gabbert’s lone hit was a 3-bagger. 

Aledo’s 16 runs came from just six hits on the night, though the Lady Eagles committed three errors and issued 10 walks.

Lauren Craine took care of the five innings in the circle, striking out five Crowley hitters, scattering four hits and walking just two batters. The Ladycats’ defense had a lone error in the match.

The Aledo offense added four runs in the third and another handful in the fourth. Crowley’s lone run came in the top of the third, not enough to avoid an early bus back home.

The Ladycats’ advance to the Area round sets up a meeting against Byron Nelson, who swept Chisholm Trail in a best-of-three series. The site, time and playoff type was yet unannounced at press time.


Brock 10, Whitney 3


SAGINAW — Helped along by a spate of five Whitney errors, Brock’s Lady Eagles came storming back from a 2-run deficit in the top of the third inning in a Class 2A Region II Bi-district playoff game on Thursday. Adding scores in each of the remaining four frames, the Lady Eagles advanced to the Area round, taking the one-and-done playoff game, 10-3.

Haley Hardison kicked off the comeback inning with a triple to right field, breaking the ice with an RBI single from pitcher Krysten Marr. Brock tacked on four more runs in the frame, taking advantage of a walk, an error and another pair of singles.
