Tough day in Albertville for Lady Bucks
Mar. 12, 2012
It started off great. After a win Friday night over Scottsboro, the BMS Lady Bucks came out early Saturday morning and picked up right where they left off. Knocking off Crossville then Albertville to finish 3-0 in pool play and go into eliminations as #1 seed. It was the defense that shined this weekend. Lauren Hayden, Ivy McKee, Anaston Adams and Bailey Kern snatched up everything that was hit and stopped any attempt at base hits. It also helped that Abbi Newby and Rylee Bertus had great days on the mound. During the Crossville game, Kelly Johnson had three attempts of runners stealing second base and three times they sent to the dugout dusting off the dirt as the umpire rang 'em up. (and dont forget the one poor girl that's gonna need ice on her back for a couple of days)
The offense had a great day as well, with Tara Crawford and Kelly Johnson hitting back to back triples. The Lady Bucks showed patience at the plate and worked the pitcher well. Many of the runs scored came from walks and then great base running. Once again, "Crash" Packard earned her name! :)
In the elimination games the Lady Bucks didn,t fair as well, losing to Lawrence County 11-1. Coach Amanda Marks stated after the game "We didn't bring our A game, and we didn't hit the ball like we did in the first couple of games, and you just can't win if you don't hit the ball."
