GRAFTON—The Lady Bearcats softball team entered Big 10 play on Friday, meeting up with the Lincoln Lady Cougars for round one.

Aubree Collins, Mia Chambers and Amber Smith led the team as they each collected a hit for Grafton, while Lincoln was led by Emily Robey, who went two for three at the plate and scored one run.

The Lady Cougars drove in two runs in the fifth inning and another in the sixth, while the Lady Cats never did find their way home, recording 15 outs. They would go on to drop the contest 0-3.

Lady Cat pitcher Fredrique Maloley took the loss going for six innings, allowing four hits and striking out nine.

During the second round of play, the Lady Bearcats found themselves in a nail-biting competition against the Lady Eagles of Robert C. Byrd High School.

Grafton found themselves falling behind the Lady Eagles early on, going into the fifth inning down by five runs.

In an attempt to make a comeback, Smith and Olivia Shaver both connected with a single and Gracen Purkey walked in the fifth to earn Grafton four runs.

While the effort was evident, the Lady Cats ran out of time, and fell to the Lady Eagles 5-6.

Shaver, Chambers, Smith and Ashlyn Zbosnik led Grafton with one hit each.

Over the course of six innings, Maloley stood on the rubber and surrendered six runs on three hits and struck out four.

Then on Monday, Grafton traveled to Fairmont looking for a victory over the Fairmont Senior High School Lady Polar Bears.

Despite out-hitting Fairmont five to one, the Lady Cats surrendered the low scoring victory to the Lady Polar Bears.

Smith led Grafton going three for three at the place, while it was Chambers that took the loss for the Lady Bearcats.

The righthander went for six innings, allowed one hit and two runs and sat seven.
