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.

On Friday Aledo met Lake Dallas. The Ladycats got behind early and struggled to recover. At the end of the second inning Aledo was down 5-1. Although Ashton Atkins held them the rest of the way, the Cats lost 5-3.

In second game action on Friday the Ladycats met the Northwest softball team. The ‘Cats were down 5-3 going into the seventh, and scored 3. They held the bottom of the seventh to win the game 6-5.

On Saturday the Aledo team met Arlington Bowie. The ‘Cats got down 5-0 in the first inning and needed base hits to win. Bowie won 8-4.

In the final game of the tournament, Aledo played Graham. From the start Aledo had a big lead. They were up 8-3 in the first three innings.

“The girls just shut down – they need to keep their foot on the pedal and keep going,” said Coach Lemons. Aledo defeated Graham 8-6.

The Ladycats will travel to college station for the A&M consolidated tournament March 1-3. They will be tested as this tournament is loaded with top ranked teams. In pool play they will meet #3 ranked Dripping Springs, Henderson (3A ranked #8 in the state) and High Tower.
