Improvement on the softball field is clearly showing itself for the Robert E. Lee Lady Ganders even if the record doesn’t quite indicate it.
Friday night, the Lee squad pulled out a big 12-3 win against Galena Park in District 22-5A to move to 5-20 overall this season to celebrate senior night in fashion.
Head coach Denise Atmar believes her team needs to be more consistent with runners in scoring position, limit errors and close out games when they have a lead.
“I think we played well tonight,” Atmar said. “Each game we are seeing small improvements from every player. It was big for our seniors to get a win on senior night. They’ve been through a lot of change and ups and downs in their time at Lee, so it was nice to get that win for them.
Linzie Jarvis pitched a complete game for the Lee girls, scattering nine hits while striking out four batters.
Nicole Price led the offense with three hits as the Lady Ganders scored at least once in each inning.
Barbers Hill 11, Port Neches-Groves 1
The winning just keeps on for the Lady Eagles.
Friday, Barbers Hill (29-2) recorded another in a long string of easy District 21-5A win thanks to a six-run bottom of the sixth inning to cement the 11-1 win.
The offense rung up 15 hits behind the multiple-hit efforts of Hayley Freudenberg and Rebecca Miller – each with a team-high three – and Matee Simon, Stephanie Niemann and Sydney Hoyt.
Samantha Landry and Simon shared RBI top honors with three.
Santa Fe 14, GCM 2
Santa Fe came out fast and never let up in a 14-2 win over GCM in Baytown.
The Indians scored seven runs in the first two, combined frames and then added a five-spot in the fifth to put the game to an end.
Cheyanne Mohler had an RBI triple to head the Lady Patriots (8-18-1) efforts in the defeat.
Texas City 5, Crosby 3
The visiting Lady Cougars battled in a nip-tuck affair in Texas City only to see the hosts leave it late.
Texas City scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning and keep the Crosby girls from pulling off a big, road win as they fell 5-3 to their hosts.
Jenna Johnson and Maggie Herdejurgen each had two hits with the latter driving in two of the Crosby (19-8) runs.
Grace Sparks pitched a complete game striking out eight and allowing only two earned runs in taking the loss.
