Lady Rams split, take third spot
The Lady Rams took a win and a loss in district play last week, but the results were good enough to move them into the third position heading into the final stretch before playoffs.
The Lady Rams fell to a tough Smithville team April 1 with Grace Edmondson on the hill. The Lady Rams got on the board with a run in the top of the first inning but the Lady Seminoles (16-4, 4-0) didn’t waste any time catching up. They racked up four in the first and scattered two runs over the next four innings. The sixth inning clinched the deal as the Lady ‘Noles posted five more runs to end the game, 11-1, over Vardaman.
The Lady Rams needed a rally and got it against Houlka April 3.
This time, the Lady Wildcats got on the board early and the Lady Rams didn’t take long to catch up and pass them, posting 17 runs over four innings to wrap the game in five.
Edmondson got the win on the mound and helped herself with three doubles at the plate.
Laci Jo Fugett had a double and three stolen bases and Sydney Huffman had a double. Cheyenne McKiney had a triple and Jessica Rodgers, McKiney, Laken Lucius and Madison Bullard all recorded steals. Lainey Landreth had two steals in the effort.
The win bought the Lady Rams a playoff berth with two division games to go. The Vardaman girls will face Hamilton and Smithville this week having lost to both teams earlier this season.
“We’d have to beat both Smithville and Hamilton to move to number two,” said coach Billy Dill.
The Lady Rams moved out of division for the Tupelo tournament Saturday taking a 14-9 win over Saltillo and losing to the hosting Lady Wave by a slim 7-8.
Against Tupelo McKiney went 2-4 at the plate with three RBI and Edmondson went 1-2 with a double. Huffman had two RBI and Anna Beth Lucius had one RBI.
In the Saltillo game, Rodgers went 3-4 with an RBI and Huffman went 3-5 with a double and two RBI.
McKiney hit 2-4 with two RBI and Edmondson hit 2-4 with two doubles and three RBI. A. Lucius and L. Landreth each had a RBI in the effort.
