Lady Indians end the season 7-3


After dropping a pair of games last week to the Corinth Lady Warriors, the Yazoo City High School Lady Indian softball team finished the season with a 7-3 overall record.

The Lady Indians ended the regular season with a 21-0 victory over Greenwood before facing Corinth in their playoff opener. Corinth traveled to Yazoo City last week, taking the first game in a best-of-three series by a score of 18-0.

The Lady Indians then traveled to Corinth two days later and lost game two, 15-0.

Despite their early exit, YHS head coach Stacey Leach is still proud of her team and what they were able to accomplish this season. "We set some goals early and one of them was to win our district and we did that. We also wanted to advance in the playoffs and while we fell short of that goal, our season was still a success. We have a very young team with only one junior and several middle school players. So our future looks good."

 Leach expects the Lady Indians to be back again next season and plans to build on this season's successes this off-season.

 "We are a very young team so as long as the girls continue to work hard we're going to be OK. We plan on working hard this summer because we don't just want to win our district. We want to advance in the playoffs next year," said Leach.
