Lady Jackets Pick up Four Wins

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at 12:04 pm

Spring break was refreshing for the Lady Yellow Jackets as they rolled over all four opponents last week and picked up another district win. Grundy is now 7-6 overall and 4-0 in the district.

“We are just coming off of a great week for us. We were able to get a little healthier and start settling down into the team we want to be. I credit our seniors with the fresh attitude the team has had since coming off spring break. Madison Burrows, Madison Rogers and Sierra Kilgore are doing a great job of leading our team by example and by command.

“We played in a tournament in Ardmore, Ala this weekend and went undefeated in our pool and were one of the top teams in the tournament. Our pitchers really did a great job of hitting spots, and the defense is getting stronger and stronger each game. We’ve finally gotten the production in the bottom of our line-up to pick up and with a little more work, I think we will be right where we want to be when tournament play picks up in May.

“We are getting ready to start our home schedule this week, so if you haven’t had a chance to make it out to see us yet, now is a great time. We have 3 home games per week for the next 3 weeks and would love to have a big crowd for each of them,” said Coach Jason Evans.

Wednesday they played Whitwell at home in front of the student body. Today the Lady Jackets host Tullahoma at 5 p.m. Friday they host South Pittsburg for another 5 p.m. start. Monday they travel to Marion County and again start at 5 p.m. Tuesday they host Chattanooga Christian at 5:30 p.m., for a district game. Wednesday they host Sequatchie County at 5 p.m., for another district game.
