Lady Jackets keep rolling in district
FERRIS – The Ferris Lady Jackets (22-5, 7-1) continued their dominance of district 13-3A this past week by winning three games with a combined score of 41-1.
Only one of the three games lasted longer than three innings and that game was won easily by nine runs. The first game of the week was played on Tuesday, April 1, against the Kemp Lady Yellow Jackets.
Ferris run-ruled their opponents in three innings with a score of 16-0.
Cassey Savell had the team’s only extra base hit of the game with a double.
She also had three RBIs to go along with it.
Samantha Duran had three singles and four RBIs while Maggie Sands had two singles of her own.
Lauren Biffle also had two singles and an RBI.
She pitched a pretty impressive game too.
She gave up only two hits and struck out six batters through the three innings.
The next game on the agenda was the Kaufman Lady Lions.
This game was more competitive than the other, but the Lady Jackets still managed to win convincingly with a score of 10-1.
Ferris only had six hits, but the Lady Lions made nine errors which lead to several unearned runs.
Freshman Kaytlin Griffith had a single in the game, as did Megan Markgraf, Sands, Biffle and Duran who had two.
Biffle struck out ten hitters and gave up no earned runs while allowing five hits.
The last game of the week was on Monday, April 7, against the Eustace Lady Bulldogs.
Ferris blasted the Lady Bulldogs by getting a whopping fourteen hits.
The Jackets run-ruled Eustace 15-0 in three innings. Biffle was one pitch away from a perfect game when she gave up her only hit of the game.
Either way, she struck out four out of nine hitters and held her opponent scoreless so she can’t be too mad at herself.
Marissa Koetting had her back by hitting two singles and a triple with four RBIs.
Carol Galindo had a single and two RBIs and Savell had herself another double with two RBIs.
The Lady Jackets play the Crandall Lady Pirates, their only loss in district, on Friday at home in a game which has district championship implications written all over it.
