Softball Playoff Doesn’t End Well

The Lady Canes from Plaquemines came to town Monday as Red River Softball hosted the first playoff game in school history.  When they departed, they took the Lady Bulldogs hopes of getting deeper into the playoffs with them.  Final score was Plaquemines 15 and Red River 2.

Despite fighting hard, the Lady Bulldogs found themselves behind from the first inning.  And in spite of Red River putting the ball into play, they were unable to get the offense going until late in the game.

Bryn Danzy took the loss; however she did rack up three Ks.  The Red River offense didn’t get hot until the bottom of the fifth inning.  That’s when they scored their two runs.

“A Tough loss to a good South Plaquemine team,” is how Coach Zachary Thrasher summed up the day.  He added, “Best of luck to them as they move on in the playoffs. I want to wish our 5 seniors the best of luck and thank you for a great 4 years. You will always be a part of this program and you are welcome back anytime.

Thrasher said, “Some things are bigger than the game of softball. And I am so glad we got to show some love to Coach Ginger Craig as she begins her battle with breast cancer.

We also would like to send a special thanks to Rapid Screen Printing for donating our jerseys and shirts today to honor Coach Craig! You got this Coach and we want you to know that The Lady Bulldogs will always be here for you!”

Red River High praised the Lady Bulldogs effort.  Our senior softball girls, team, and coaches made history this year at RRHS by hosting a 1st round playoff game. We lost this round but these girls have left their mark on RRHS and for the teams to come. The future Lady Bulldogs will remember they were the first to do it. Thank you for an amazing season girls.

“I’m So proud of these girls and all they have accomplished,” said Principal JC Dickey. He added, “These seniors are going to be my first full class at Red River and part of the group that have not only made history on the field and court during their 4 years but also in the classroom. They are the reason RRHS is gaining attention and recognition not only in athletics but academics as well.”
