LACYGNE After seven losses, the majority of which were rather lopsided, Iola softball head coach Chris Wei-de felt it was time for a change going into their doubleheader at Prairie View on Thursday. Despite the fact the Fillies dropped both games vs. the Lady Buffalos, Weide felt his new-look 1-9 team made progress.
I think being eight games in, we had a little more of a sample size to see what was working and what wasnt, Weide said. Some of it was their performance on the field and some of it was attitude and effort and I just figured that some of the younger girls needed some chances. I didnt know how theyd respond but they handled themselves well. Some girls earned some playing time tonight.
The Fillies may have lost both games, 12-6 and 12-1, but players like freshmen Becca Sprague and Lauryn Holloway each recorded hits in the games they played.
