Warming up for playoffs
The Lady Rams had the same problem with Smithville everyone else in division 4-1A has had this year – a tough defense led by pitcher Morgan Barrett.
The Lady Rams hosted the Lady Seminoles April 10 without much success as Smithville rolled past the Vardaman girls 9-0.
Grace Edmondson, Cheyenne McKiney and Sydney Huffman managed hits off Barrett and Lainey Landreth had a sacrifice, but the Lady Rams couldn’t move a runner all the way around to score.
The Lady Rams aren’t in the minority when it comes to falling to the Lady ‘Noles. The Smithville girls currently hold the number one spot in division at 5-0 with one district game left.
The Lady Rams also have one district game to play and are holding the third position heading into playoffs.
They will host Hamilton Thursday at 6 p.m. and still have an opportunity to make a positive move. The game has the potential to put the Lady Rams up one notch in playoff berths.
“We will be in third unless we beat Hamilton by more than six runs,” said coach Billy Dill.
Thursday night will also be senior recognition for the Lady Rams.
Vardaman downs Bruce
The Lady Rams picked up a non-division win over county rival, the Lady Trojans of Bruce, April 11 with three pitchers sharing time on the hill. Huffman, Laci Jo Fugett and Edmondson all got in on the action with Edmondson getting the win.
Fugett and McKiney both had doubles and the team racked up stolen bases. Laken Lucius, Lainey Landreth, Johnna Landreth, Megan Havens and Edmondson all added bases through steals.
Vardaman will travel to Calhoun City Friday for a rematch with the Lady Wildcats. The Lady Rams came out on top, 15-0, in their first outing this season against City.
