Lady Jacket slow-pitch softball took on the Louisville Lady Wildcats September 17, falling short with the score of 15-7.
The Lady Jackets struggled on offense, contributing to their loss. The Lady Jackets’ struggled to get hits and the Lady Wildcats’ defense was well up to par.
Senior outfielder, Debria Norris believes the team has some weaknesses that need improvement.
“The team is having an all right season, but we still have a lot to improve on, judging that we have only won one game this season,” Norris said.
The Lady Jackets currently have an overall record of 1-9 with 0-3 in the conference.
Heading toward the ending of the season the team will need a miraculous change to turn around their season.
Despite their losing season thus far, Senior Anna Brooks praises their efforts on defense. “We have a great defense,” Brooks said.
Brooks believes the team could work on their hitting and pitching to make a huge improvement in competition. Sophomore McKenzie Parrish and senior Takerra Smith are the current pitchers. They both agree to work on improving their pitching for the next game.   

Starting Sophomore Brianne Locke said the girls on the team work well together and have good team chemistry.
‘’The team has a better relationship than ever, but we must encourage and help build each other up at practice and at games’’ Locke said.
Even though the team is not having a winning season, that won’t stop them from encouragement for each other and a strong head going into the next game.  

The Lady Jackets’ next game is Monday, September 24, versus Northwest Rankin, in Flowood, at 6 p.m.
