Lady Cat softball hosts Sunray in Tuesday’s season opener

Body
In the debut of their second season as an official UIL sport at Canadian High School, the Lady Cat softball team struggled against a more experienced Lady Bobcat squad, but showed notable progress after last week’s back-to-back scrimmages. In photo at top, this Lady Cat varsity player made good use of her at-bat, driving the ball just beyond the pitcher’s reach to advance to first base. In photo at left, this Lady Cat runner slides into third, taking advantage of a bobbled catch. Canadian lost the opening contest to Sunray. Next up for the Lady Cats is a road trip tomorrow (Friday, Feb. 21) to Memphis. On Saturday, Feb. 22, Canadian will host Booker for a home game starting at 12 noon, followed by another home game versus Memphis on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 4 pm.
