Lady Mustangs snag district win


The Lady Mustangs softball team picked up a 13-7 win over Mexia in their first home district matchup of the season on Friday to bounce back from back-to-back losses.

“We had a lot of energy coming off of two tough losses against Fairfield and Athens,” said Madisonville softball coach Ashley Renner. “I feel like we have battled throughout district play thus far and fought to the end of every game we’ve been in overall. Our hitting has been exceptional and keeps us in games.”

The hitting was in full effect last Tuesday despite the eventual 13-11 loss at the hands of the Hornets. The game appeared to be a blowout down the stretch, but the Mustangs gave Athens a strong finish with 5 runs in the top of the seventh to fall just short of a comeback.

Freshman Grace Williamson led the way from the plate for Madisonville with a pair of hits and 3 driven in. Fellow freshman Raegan Olivera also recorded two hits in the game.

Madisonville was right back on the horse for their home district opener against Mexia on Friday. This was the team’s first win in district play before they traveled to Palestine last night. They will enjoy a bye on Friday before they return home to host Fairfield.
