By Autumn McCoy

Red River travelled to Jonesboro-Hodge Monday evening to take on the Lady Tigers for the second time this season. At the end of the game, Coach Zachary Thrasher had racked up his 100th career victory.

The Lady Bulldogs kicked things off early today with Gracie Baker #9 and Bryn Danzy #4 scoring in the

first inning. Danzy struck out the first two Jonesboro-Hodge hitters, and Gracie Baker #9 caught a foul ball from the third batter to keep it three up, and three down.

Jonesboro-Hodge would score their only two runs in the second inning. From there, the Lady Bulldogs were able to add 8 more to their runs before the game was called after the bottom of the 4th inning.

The Lady Bulldogs did not simply win on Monday night, they added the 100th win to Coach Zachary Thrasher’s coaching record. Since he began coaching in 2013, Thrasher has coached 9 seasons. The team and other coaches presented him with a banner and the game ball, signed by all players and coaches.
