Lady Toppers heading into divison
Most local softball teams are reaching the midpoint of the regular season and heading into division play seeking wins and longer playing time in playoffs.
The Lady Toppers of Houston picked up a win over Houlka Sept. 5, but didn’t fare as well in the Caledonia tournament over the weekend, losing to New Hope in one of Saturday’s games.
Although Madeline Burdine, Alexis McShan and Shonda Maxwell all posted multiple hits and the Lady Toppers knocked in nine runs, the Lady Confederates took the 12-9 win.
Madeline Burdine was the pitcher of record for the Lady Toppers.
Coach Jeffrey Mann wants his team to take their losses in the non-division schedule as a learning experience as they move into district play.
“We have a lot of tough games under our belt and hope that will help us come division time,” Mann said.
The Houston girls were scheduled to travel to Calhoun City Tuesday and on to East Webster Thursday. After a weekend break, they will open division play Sept. 16 hosting new Albany and head to Shannon Sept. 17.
