The Lady Eagles lost to Gatesville last Friday, April 26, with a relatively low score loss of 5-6. The game was a post-season match at the Gatesville dugouts. Top scorer’s for the Lady Eagles were: Rebecca Dunlap with two runs, Lauren Adcock, Margo Measles, and Kealie House each with one run, Banner Monico and Margo Measles each with two runs batted in, Carsyn Cox with one strikeout as pitcher, and Abby Garcia with four strikeouts as pitcher. “Our team worked together very well,” said junior Kaitlynn Judd, “but occasionally we wouldn’t start hitting the ball until later in the game or we’d make some errors and it would cause the other team to score.” The game, at first, seemed to be in Fairfield’s favor. However, near the end of the game, Gatesville scored four runs in the sixth inning, which was enough to surpass Fairfield by two points “They simply outhit us.

A free softball clinic was held by Fairfield Lady Eagles March 19-20 for students in 3rd through 6th grades, with or without softball experience. During this free clinic, the Lady Eagles worked individually with these young players, both teaching by example and answering questions. They worked in stations to address a variety of skills and covered all aspects of the game. The clinic served as a perfect opportunity for the younger girls to meet and form bonds with the 2018 team. Softball is in full “swing” and players invite community members to cheer on their favorite team, Little League through high school!
