The scores were similar, but the games really weren’t.

Louisville High School fast-pitch softball coach Chad Gipson said his
team played extremely well in an 11-0 loss to Houston on Tuesday, but
had a poor performance in the field on Thursday in a 12-0 setback to

“Against Houston, the defending 4A champs, I though we played as good
as we have all year,” Gipson said. “We had a bad first inning where
they scored 10 runs, but it was just because they were hitting the
ball all over the place. We were throwing strikes and playing well on
“After that inning we settled down and had a real strong
performance,” he said.

Deanna Harrington ripped an RBI double to produce Louisville’s lone run.

“Against Caledonia we made multiple errors that really cost us,” he
said. “We went from one of our best games to one of our works. We are
just inconsistent, but that is what happens when you have young
inexperienced players.”

But, Gipson said he really likes the direction his team is going,
especially the improvement in pitcher Brooklyn Hill.

“We are getting better every day, despite the little setbacks. The
morale is still high on the team and the girls are working hard.”

The Lady Wildcats were set to Host Kosciusko on Tuesday, before
visiting Noxubee County Thursday at 5 p.m. for a doubleheader and
then make the short trip to Nanih Waiya on Friday for a 6:30 p.m.

LHS will also take part in a junior varsity tournament in Amory on
