Political Debates
Do you plan to attend any of the political debates planned throughout the county in the coming weeks?

Haley Bayer, freshman, winds up for the pitch in recent Lady Wolverine softball action. Haley Keesler at third and Carly Stephens on first is ready for the batter's response.
The Dade County Lady Wolverine softball team got off to a rough start last week when they traveled to LaFayette to face the Lady Ramblers.

Nothing seemed to go right for the Lady Wolverines as they fell to the host Lady Rambles 12-0 in three innings. Carly Stephens was 1-1 for the Lady Wolverines.

Things improved over the weekend however as the Lady Wolverines played in the Lakeview Ft. Oglethorpe Tournament at Warner Park in Chattanooga, Tenn.

In their first game Dade faced North Murray and came away with a big win, their first of the young season, 8-3. The Lady Wolverines were led by Carri Pierce who had two hits including a double and scored a run while Haley Keesler also had two hits and scored two runs. Stephens scored twice, hit a home run and had four runs batted in.

In their second game the Lady Wolverines dropped a hard fought game to the Lakeview Ft. Oglethorpe’s Lady Warriors 11-9.

Stephens led the Lady Wolverines with three hits, including another home run and three RBI’s. Cassie Rae Higdon also had three hits and an RBI while Sydney Poston had two hits and scored two runs.

Dade then faced Murray County and lost 12-2 against a very good team. Pierce, Poston, Stephens and Kaitlyn Booth all had one hit for the Lady Wolverines.

Next up was the Lady Eagles of Coosa, a region foe, and the Lady Wolverines claimed an easy 14-0 win. Higdon led the Lady Wolverines with three hits while Pierce, Poston and Booth all had a pair of hits each.

In their final game of the tournament the Lady Wolverines faced Sonoraville and lost 8-4 to another AAA team.

Autumn Smith had three hits for the Lady Wolverines in the game while Haley Bayer and Poston had two hits each.

Coach Christine Core Engbers thoughts for the week were:

“Overall this week has been huge for our team. We started out poorly against LaFayette, but the girls came to practice the rest of the week willing to learn from mistakes. They worked hard and competed in every game of the LFO Tournament. We played some really good teams there and if we play error-free softball, we could have came out with four wins. Our pitching staff did a great job all around and all four of them are improving with each inning. This weekend has encouraged me as we enter our first week of region play.”

This week the Lady Wolverines will host Coosa on Thursday at 5 p.m. Dade will travel to Dalton on Saturday for a noon game and will be Darlington’s guests on Tuesday at 5 p.m.
