The Lady Bulldogs are back out on the field, having kicked off slow-pitch softball with the Dibble Festival on Monday and Tuesday.
They split their games on Monday, beating 6A Norman North 13-6, but falling to 2A Cyril 23-6.
Games were scheduled with Minco and Lindsay for Tuesday afternoon.
The Lady ‘Dawgs are returning seven starters from last year’s team who include seniors Ryli Harmon, Abby Turnpaugh and Promise Houck; juniors Izzy Pack and Leslie Barber and sophomores Abby Sample and Kiely Givens.
“We are fortunate to have players that have played a lot of softball in their lives,” head coach Steve Blair said.
Also returning for Lexington is junior Alexis Feuerborn and sophomores Marisa Northrup, Emilee Pierce, Emma Gower, Abi Clifton and Jordan Hardy.
Blair also mentioned Madilyn Dunn and Cora Vazquez, who are joining the ranks.
“Madilyn and Cora will provide hitting power and leadership to the team.”
Freshmen Baylee Rillema and Jalen Idlett will also be out for Lexington.
According to Blair, the team is hoping to balance place hitting with power hitting, supported by great defense.
“Once we put everything together, I feel we will be very competitive,” Blair said.
Following the Dibble Festival, Lexington will be off for Spring Break.
Their schedule resumes with a slate of road games. They will be in Blanchard on March 21 with Blanchard and Washington. Then they travel to Bethel on March 22. And, to round out their week, the Lady ‘Dawgs will be in Harrah March 24-25 for the Harrah Tournament.
Assisting Coach Blair is Kallie McMahan.
