BHS Lady Cats softball take fifth straight win
Posted 1:26 p.m. on Friday, September 16, 2022
The Bainbridge High School Lady Cats softball team are enjoying their first hot streak of the season as they have won their last five straight games. The Lady Cats did it in dominant fashion, averaging over 18 points per game in those wins
The Lady Cats made quick work of Hardaway in their second win as two 11-run innings resulted in a leniency rule after the second inning giving the Lady Cats a 22-0 win. More recently, a two-game double-header against Westover ended in two wins for Lady Cat as they scored a combined 40 points in those wins.
This winning streak currently gives the Lady Cats an undefeated record of 5-0 in regional play as they head into the final month of the season and begin to compete for the playoff standings.
Situational hitting continues to be a strength for the Lady Cats as head coach Rex Wade worked hard in practice with his players and emphasized the importance of situational hitting for his players.
“We work on situational hitting every time in batting practice,” Wade said. “We will often fake two hits, one hit counts and stuff like that. We really did a great job in our approach to home plate and hit the ball hard in all the right spots.
On the mound, Brenna Conley continued to be the ace the Lady Cats rely on as she stopped and confused the hitters and was also able to hold her arm while the Lady Cat hitters feasted on their opposition.
Coach Wade continued to stress the importance of the Lady Cats defense and how defensively the Lady Cats can compete with anyone.
“Our defense is probably the strongest part of our team,” Wade said. “Before every game, I tell the girls to go out and play boring defense, which basically means limiting errors and fouls and playing fundamental softball.”
The Lady Cats will be home Tuesday night as they host Seminole County at 5:30 p.m. at Bainbridge High School.
