Lady Cats face struggles at the plate

GRAFTON—The Lady Bearcat softball team was handed their second loss of the season on Tuesday evening, as the Robert C. Byrd (RCB) Eagles claimed the 1-0 victory.

The contest would be a true battle of the teams’ pitchers; Fredrique Maloley for the Lady Cats and Franchesca Alvaro on the mound for the Lady Eagles.

Maloley surrendered the first and only run of the game, scored by the Eagles, in the first inning, and also recorded a single for the Cats during that time.

The remaining six innings would see both teams struggling at the plate, with Maloley striking out eight, and allowing zero hits, and Alvaro sending 15 to the dugout.

On the night, Grafton only connected for four hits with swings by Kaileigh Spiker, Maloley and Aubree Collins.

The loss dropped the Lady Bearcats to a 7-2 record.

Unfortunately for the Lady Cats, their woes continued into their contest with Lincoln on Thursday evening.

Starting out the first inning, an error contributed to two opening runs for Grafton.

However, in the second inning, the Lincoln Lady Cougars pulled away, scoring five runs, and kept the momentum going throughout the game, earning six additional runs in the fourth inning.

Despite their struggles and only connecting for four hits on the evening, Lady Bearcat Mia Chambers recorded a homer for the team, knocking one over the center field fence in the third inning.

The Lady Cougars connected for 14 hits , earning them 16 runs to take the 4-16 win over Grafton.
