The West Texas Lady Comanches played two district softball games on the road this week. That didnâ€™t matter to the Lady Tribe as they took care of business in style. First, they came close to shutting out the Lady Mustangs from Claude on Saturday. The girls did a great job defensively holding Claude to only one run, winning 21-1. Then, they went to Follett and won 11-0 on Monday.
Freshman Danielle Heater has been outstanding on the mound for the Lady Comanches. She came so close to a no hitter on Saturday when Claude slipped a base runner across home plate to end that. Heater did end up allowing just four hits and had 10 strike outs.
The girls were just as deadly with the bat. Devin DeLapp was 4-5 at the plate with a solo home run. Sarah Kelly went 2-4 and had a home run with two on. Chay Sargent has been really consistent at the plate lately. She was 3-4 with two doubles.
The Lady Tribe is still in the hunt for that coveted spot in post season play. Their overall record is 6-9 and they are 5-3 in District play.
