The Dragons coaching staff were a little short-handed this weekend, so I'm only able to post box scores. The tournament was moved from Swartz Creek to Brandon due to field conditions.
The Dragons played a couple of great games despite dropping 2 of 3. Phoebe Cross pitched 2 fantastic games in the opener versus Brandon and against the #2 ranked team in the state Bay City Western. There were also some great defensive plays including diving catches by outfielder Hanna Sayles and Center Fielder Tabby Miller adding more perfect long throws cutting down a runner at 3rd and nearly at home. For the most part the Dragons played very solid defense on the day and in recent weeks.
The ladies overall record is 12-12 with 3 league double headers scheduled this week. They are 6-4 in league play and trying to finish the regular season strong heading into districts, which will be at Kearsley on Saturday, May 31st. Any weather cancellations this week will be made up next week before districts.
