Lady ‘Cats end softball season

By the I-R staff

 

The Lady Bearcat softball team finished its 2018 season with a record of 13-9. However, there’s more to the story, said Coach Ken Cravens. “The nine losses all came to highly successful teams,” he said. The Lady ‘Cats fell twice to Southeast of Saline and twice to Republic County, both of which will compete at State; three times to the Lady Trojans of Beloit, who went undefeated in the North Central Kansas Activities Association and was defeated in the championship game at regionals by Southeast of Saline;.

The final two losses were to Salina’s Sacred Heart Lady Knights, who also ended their season in regional finals. “So all in all, we would have loved to have won more games and placed higher in the league standings, but our league was very talented and will represent in both the 3A and 2A state softball tournaments,” Cravens said.
