The Sulphur Springs Lady Cats closed out the scrimmage portion of their softball season with an 8-6 win at Lindale Thursday night.
The Lady Cats banged out 13 hits on their way to the win over the Lady Eagles.
Coach David Carrillo was happy with the work done by three pitchers. Kaci Kennedy pitched the first three innings and gave up three runs on six hits, and struck out four. Katie Dugan followed with three innings, allowing three unearned runs on two hits, and struck out five. Baylee Speaker pitched the final inning allowing no runs, two hits and two strike outs. The big sticks were talking as Sulphur Springs pounded the ball, led by Katie Dodd’s four hits (one double), one RBI, and one run.
Other leading hitters were: Jamonica Hall (double, two RBI, run,); Brittani Crawford (double, one RBI,); Krista McMahan (triple, walk, run,); Kara Tomlinson (two singles, run,); Jalie Eppars (single, 2 walks, two runs,); T'Kea Johnson (single, RBI,); Mac Morgan (single, run,); Maurie Lewis (single, run,); Kennedy added a sacrifice fly for an RBI.
Carrillo said, “We just need to be a little more consistent defensively but that will come as our season goes on. Our hitting and pitching is farther along than I expected so that is a pleasant surprise. I am very pleased with our overall team play.”

Sulphur Springs plays games at 4:30 and 6 p.m.
The SS freshman will play here today at 5:30. vs Caddo Mills JV. (Cumby made the basketball playoffs)
