Hawley Lady Cats Softball Season Has Started!

By Linda Miller


This last Saturday, Feb. 20th, started this year’s softball season. The Lady Cats sponsored a fundraiser for the softball team. Starting at noon, it kicked off with the varsity team playing Coahoma. In the first inning, Courtney Dillard #9 made a good hit that sent Katelyn Taylor #14 in for a run, so score was 1-0 at the end of the 1st inning.

Marrissa Hall #2 pitched the complete game, with Cassidy Meyer #15 as catcher. Hawley’s 1st baseman was Jordan Huber #8, 2nd baseman was Kaylee Rice #12, and 3rd baseman was Allie Brewer #4. The Shortstop was Samantha Newton #6. Outfielders were: Left Field-Katelyn Taylor #14, Center-Courtney Dillard #9, and Right Field-Alex Chavez #5. The reserve players were: Reagan Chapman #3, Hadlee Hicks #1, and Whitney Pack #10. The Floaters were: Bailey Baldock #11 and Hannah Jamar #7

Throughout the next 6 innings, several hits but no runs were made by Coahoma or Hawley. The end of game of 7 innings was 1-0 with Hawley winning. I really enjoyed watching the girls play.

Next, came a game between Coahoma and Bangs. Bangs was determined as the Home team, so Coahoma batted first. Bangs scored 2 runs and Coahoma didn't score any runs in 1st inning. In 2nd inning, Bangs scored another run but Coahoma did not score. Bangs scored 4 runs in the 3rd inning, and Coahoma scored none. This made the score Bangs 7 & Coahoma 0 at this end of 3rd inning. Bangs did not scored any more runs, but Coahoma did scored 1 run in the 6th inning. At the end of the game of 7 innings, Bangs won 7 runs and Coahoma 1. It also was a very good game to watch.

The items for the Silent Auction had been set up earlier at the back of the concession stand. Anyone could make a bid on any of the items. Just some of the items were cakes, pies, pillows, homemade 6’ shelves, Baseball sign, Live Laugh Love sign, wire basket, crosses, cross t-shirts, baseball Mason jar piggy banks, ‘baseball’ cross plaque, etc.

In the concession stand, they sold tea, sodas, hot dogs, frito pie, nachos, gum, chili dogs, etc. Oh, forgot--Sunflower seeds!!! I saw them everywhere! The birds will love that.

Other type of fundraiser things were “Hit by the Foot”. Each girl had a sponsor, that paid certain amount for every foot that was hit. The girl would go up with her bat, and a ball was put on the stand. The girl would swing and hit the ball as far as she could. Each girl had so many balls to hit.

Then, they had a ”Kick Ball” game. Anyone that wanted to play could sign up for a $1. The softball girls had to play or be a referee. All ages split up into 2 teams and played. It was so much fun to watch. I thought Chad Bristow might be the MVP of the game if there had been one. No, I am just joking! All seemed to have lots of fun, and really enjoyed it.

At that point, they had “Home Run Derby”!! It was where anyone could pay so much for certain amount of balls to hit. The balls were softballs that were pitched from the machine, and the batter did his/her best to hit a homerun. Do you know what a homerun is? It is where the pitch is hit over the back fence of the ball park. Brian Webster, Bodie Sibley, and Coach Ables were just a few that did this.


I want to congratulate the softball team for a successful event. I do not know the amount that was made, but the team did a very well organized and fun fundraiser. I want to make sure I congratulate Coach Cottingham and Coach Verette. They are outstanding and loving coaches. All the girls love and respect their coaches.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
