vs. Cy Fair (Loss 6-10)
The Lady Spartans hosted Cy Fair in their first District game of the season last Tuesday. They fought hard and tried to make a comeback in the bottom of the 7th inning with back-to-back doubles by Marina Taveras and Gwyn Katterhenry, followed by a single by Adrianna Estrada and a HOMERUN by Allison Hibbetts. Unfortunately, it was too little, too late, and despite out-hitting (11-8) and scoring more earned runs than the Bobcats, they couldn’t overcome the deficit early in the game. Aashna Kapoor started the game on the mound, with Katterhenry and Hayden Houser entering the game in relief.
