MACON — The Eastern Lady Warriors offense lit things up to start the softball season.
In the team’s first three games, they scored a total of 38 runs, winning two of those three contests. The weather cooled off after that, however, and so did the team.
The squad scored a total of 12 runs in a doubleheader on a cold, windy Saturday against Northwest, which didn’t help things, according to head coach Harold Dorsey.
“The wind and the cold made for miserable playing conditions,” Dorsey said.
The team rebounded, picking up an 11-3 victory over Whiteoak last week to even their record at 3-3, but a three-run loss to North Adams dropped the team back below .500. Regardless, the offensive output is something Dorsey attributes to the top half of his lineup, which needs to continue hitting the ball for the Lady Warriors to have success.
“The top two-thirds of our lineup seem to be seeing the ball pretty well,” Dorsey said. “That’s allowed us to score some runs.”
As the squad battles through the Southern Hills Athletic Conference this season, Dorsey acknowledged his team would have a difficult task ahead of them but believes his team can compete as long as the pitching can keep them in ballgames.
“It’s tough,” Dorsey said. “As long as our pitching holds out, I think we’ll do okay.”
The Lady Warriors, like most teams in the region, have battled rain and cold conditions to start the year. Two of the team’s scheduled games this week, at West Union and at Lynchburg, were cancelled. The team is scheduled to host Peebles on Thursday, April 14 before squaring off against the Ripley Blue Jays at home on April 15.
