“I was very pleased with our win over Weir,” said Ethel head coach Jim Wood. “I think we did a good job at the plate by putting the ball in play at every opportunity.”
The Lady Tigers traveled to Leake Central on Friday and dropped the contest 16-1 to the 4A school prompting coach Wood to say, “The loss at Leake Central was a tough one but I feel like our effort level was there.”
They fell again on Monday to Noxapater 12-2 and Wood added, “The Noxapater loss may have been the best total game that we have played to this point. We just made mistakes at bad times and could never come up with the timely base-clearing hit. I was very pleased with our effort and focus.”
The Lady Tigers will be back in action on Thursday when they travel to Weir for a 4 p.m. contest and again on Friday when they host Noxapater at 4 p.m.
