Lady Eagles in Cam-Rock Tourney
The Lady Eagles had mixed results from their six games in the Cameron-Rockdale softball tourney.
Thursday was not good news but Friday was great news, and Saturday was good also.
This puts Lexington in great position to start District 25-AA action Tuesday with #10 ranked Salado which was also in the tourney. Salado put six losses into their resume’ after the very competitive tourney. Thursday: Lexington started the tourney against a tough China Spring team. Lexington lost 6-0. Courtney Robertson gave up just six hits and the Lady Eagles added to the CS offense by committing six errors. CS played errorless ball in the win.
Game two saw Lexington take on Brownwood. Once again Robertson gave up only eight hits and the Lady Eagles contributed to the opposition by making seven errors. Jessica Parish banged out a double for the Lady Eagles in the contest.
Friday: New day, new team. Lexington took on host Cameron. Lexington lost to Cameron 14-9 in the first game of the season. This time, Robertson pitched a one-hit shut out and teammates committed ‘only’ two errors. Lexington banged out four hits against the Lady Yoe and received help from three timely Yoe fielding mistakes.
Lexington took on 5A Corpus Christi Miller in game four of the tourney. Parish was the winning pitcher and she banged out her fourth round-tripper of the year. Lexington had 10 runs on 12 hits and again ‘only’ two errors.
Saturday: Lexington torched Weimar 9-1 early in the morning. Parish hit a homer in each of her first two at-bats running her yearly total to six. Coach Starnes said the Weimar coach told his pitcher, “She hit a homer in each of her first two at bats, do you think we can be a little careful with her this time?” Robertson was the winning pitcher as she held the Lady Cats to one run on four hits and Lexington ‘only’ made three errors.
A rematch with Brownwood followed. Brownwood prevailed this time but only 3-2. Robertson allowed only three hits, but the Lady Eagles regressed in the field, committing seven fielding errors to allow the Lady Lions to win.
