It takes courage to STRIKE OUT CANCER, the kind of courage the Lady Dragons see exemplified every day in the Liles family. And it took courage tonight for SLC to pick up its 5th straight district win.
On a night filled with special ceremonies and circumstances, it was only fitting that the Lady Dragons had to play a special game. Trailing, 2-0 almost from the game's opening pitch and then again 5-2 late, the Lady Dragons had to mount a stirring comeback. They scored 3 runs in the 5th on a 3 run double by Avery Ziegler and 1 in the 6th on an RBI single by senior Abigail Stuart.
The Lady Dragons, 17-5 overall and 5-1 in district play defeated the Blue Raiders of LD Bell thanks to their late inning heroics tonight.
The win in the circle went to Kelly Shackelford in relief of Allie Nuenke as Shackelford tossed 2 2/3 innings. The offensive star of the evening was Zeigler who had 4 of the team's 6 RBIs.
After this stirring win the Lady Dragons will take on Lewisville Hebron on the road, Tuesday, March 27th at 7pm.
