|Lady Vikings look to finish this year|
That's the theme for this year's Vidalia Lady Vikings softball team.
"We lost quite a few games in the seventh inning last year," said Lady Viking coach Gary Paul Parnham. "We have to be more focused."
The Lady Vikings finished 9-17 overall last year, winning one game in rugged District 3-3A.
Parnham will be counting on seniors Kelsee Partridge, Randi Cox, Caitlyn Thornton, Kennedy Beard and Kadesia Thompson.
The lone junior is pitcher Laura Perriolloux.
Sophomores are Taylor Perkins, Savannah McCarver. and Chelsey Richards.
Perrilloux was 9-16 with a 2.95 earned run average. She struck out 67 batters over 159 inning and walked 39.
"We've picked up some pitchers who should help Laura out," Parnham said.
Beard batted .311 with one home run and 10 runs batted in.
Partridge led the Lady Vikings with a .407 batting average with two home runs, 12 doubles and three triples, while batting in 25 runs.
Five teams in District 3-3A participated in the playoffs last year.
"It's going to be a good district again," Parnham said. "It will be the toughest 3A in the state. But we're looking forward to the challenge. We've got some girls ready to step up and some freshmen coming in ready to contribute."
