The Livingston Academy softball team played well over the last few weeks, winning some games and playing solidly in all of their contests.
On April 17, the Lady Cats played Clay County and scored seven runs in the second inning on their way to an 11-5 victory. The offensive onslaught came from singles by Abby Stevens and Jordan key, doubles by Brylee Abbott and Jazlyn Flowers, and a walk from Emma Dulworth.
The offense got started in the first inning, when Jena Harris drew a walk, scoring one run.
Sabrina Garrett was the winning pitcher for Livingston Academy. She lasted two innings, allowing four hits and two runs while walking zero. Leah Kate Clark recorded the last five outs to earn the save for the Wildcats.
Jazlyn Flowers led with three hits in three at-bats.
It was a difficult one for the Lady Wildcats on April 21, as they faced the Upperman Bees and lost, 14-4.
The Lady Cats struggled to contain the Upperman offense and could not seem to get out from under to score, struggling mightily in both aspects.
The fourth inning was a bright spot for the Wildcats, as they exploded for four runs in the fourth. The big inning was thanks to an error on a ball put in play by Leah Kate Clark and Jordan Key and a single by Abby Stevens.
The Lady Cats racked up six hits on the day. Stevens and Addie Brown both lead the team, with two hits apiece.
