On Tuesday, Feb. 21 the Aledo varsity softball team lost to Grapevine 3-1

Last year this same team beat Aledo 22-10.

“We played well,” said Coach Jeff Lemons.

Going into the game the ‘Cats were 2-2 for the early season. They had beaten Haltom 6-2 and Trinity 9-0 the previous week in the Birdville Tournament.

Grapevine was undefeated going into the game.

The Ladcats’ Allie Arneson #6 had a double in the game and Megan Mason #15, the designated hitter, hit two singles. Kacie Brann, the senior pitcher, who has signed with Angelo State, had a single and an RBI. Alex Cook #9 had a hit, and Tori Gore, a sophomore, scored a run.

“We scored in the sixth, left the bases loaded and needed one hit to make this a completely different game,” Coach Lemons said.

The Ladycats won three of their six games last weekend at their tournament in Aledo. The teams that competed were A&M Consolidated (5A), Grapevine (5A), Aledo (4A), Lake Dallas (4A), Northwest (5A), Arlington Bowie (5A) and Graham (3A).

The tournament opened up with Aledo beating A&M Consolidated 9-5 on Thursday.

Later the Ladycats lost to Grapevine 14-13.
