Lady Roos off to good start  with District 3-5A win

Staff Report

 Weatherford varsity softball opened district play on Tuesday, with an impressive win over Arlington Bowie. Despite a shaky defensive start, allowing the Lady Vols to score a pair of runs in the first frame, the defense shut out Bowie the rest of the contest.

The Lady Roos’ offensive power dominated the rest of the game, totalling nine hits on the night, with senior Tawnye Bramlett hitting for the cycle, with a single, double, triple, and a home run. Sophomore pitcher Kelsey O’Brien pitched a solid district-opener for the WHS girls. 

The Lady Roos are currently 10-2 on the season (1-0 in district play), with their next  district outing on Tuesday, traveling to play  Arlington Martin at Workman Field.
