Broncos begin District with win over Booker
The Lady Broncos are have a goal in mind for their 2010 softball season and that is to win District. They jumped out to a good start in District play defeating Booker 18-5 in five innings.
The ladies put together a good game both offensively and defensively, according to head coach Gary Jack, and proved to their opponents they are serious about a District Championship.
They are currently at 11-4 and 1-0 for the year.
After a scoreless first inning, the Lady Broncos blew the Lady Kiowas out in the second recording nine unanswered runs. The ladies added six more in the next inning and capped off their win with three more in the fourth.
Danielle Ford was on the mound for the ladies, and Dominique Mason was behind the plate. Jency Burton came in and pitched the last couple of innings for the Lady Broncos and did a good job, Jack said.
“We blew them out of the water in the second inning,” Jack said. “It was a solid game for us. Everyone hit the ball well, and we got the win.”
Ford slammed her third over-the-fence homerun for the season against Booker, and several others connected on great hits.
The Lady Broncos took on Childress earlier in the week and defeated them, 17-12.
“It was a crazy game,” Jack said. “It was a slug fest.”
The ladies trailed early at one run to six for the Lady Cats. But Clarendon was able to come back on them in a big way and led at one point, 11-6. After trailing again by a run, the ladies kicked into gear and took the five-point win in seven innings.
“We did a lot of good things,” Jack said. “We made a few mistakes that allowed them to get the lead on us, but we were able to hit the ball well and had a lot of shots to the fence.
“We were able to overcome and hold on for the win.”
Jack gave credit to several players for their good hitting in the game. Danielle Ford, Trevela Dronzek, Brandi Mays, Elissa Holland, Caitlyn Christopher, Maci White, Emily Clark, and Dominique Mason all had good hits for the Lady Broncos.
The Lady Bronco junior varsity also took on Childress and blasted them, 22-0.
Jency Burton was on the mound and did a good job pitching.
“We were able to jump on them quick and only go three innings,” Jack said. “Everyone played well and got good playing time in the game. Chelsea Covey, Chanda Reynolds, and Erin Moore did a really good job for us.”
The ladies will travel to Perryton Thursday, March 18, and will play Fritch at home Friday, March 19, at 2:00 p.m. They will play at River Road Saturday in a double-header beginning at 11:00 a.m. and host Claude Monday, March 22, in another district game at 4:00 p.m.
