Key players set to return to Lady Panthers
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
There’s good news and bad news for the Yazoo County softball squad.
The good news is that starting first baseman Quertisha Bullock and pitcher Catrina Hall will return from their injuries this week.
The bad news is the Lady Panthers had to suffer through a 10-0 loss Winona Friday night.
“It’ll be very important to us to get those two back,” Lady Panthers head coach Grant Andrews said. “In fast pitch, if you have a good, strong pitcher you can play with anybody in the state. Your first baseman is in on 50 percent of the infield plays. Losing that starter hurts.”
Friday night, the role was reversed for Yazoo County. Instead of having their pitcher be the dominant one in the circle, it was Winona’s starter who proved to be too dominant for the Lady Panthers to handle that night.
“Their pitcher was simply dominant,” Andrews said. “She kept our girls off balanced. She threw the ball hard, she threw strikes and our girls just couldn’t catch up.”
