The softball team will go on the road to face Royse City in its final district game of the year at 7 p.m. In their last matchup, the Lady Leopards won in a narrow victory 5-4.

According to head coach Jeff Roberts, this game does not mean much, as both teams are already set to compete in the playoffs. Both teams are currently tied for third place in the district 15-5A standings.

“We have already qualified for the playoffs, so this is a game where we will throw three or four pitchers and hopefully get some quality at-bats in prior to the start of the playoffs,” Roberts said.

The winner of the game will finish in third place and face Hallsville. The loser will finish in fourth place to play Sulphur Springs, who the Lady Leopards beat in the playoffs last year. Both teams sit behind Forney and Mesquite Poteet, who are in first and second place, respectively.

Last Tuesday, the team fell to Mesquite Poteet at home on senior night 18-8. Despite the large margin in their loss, Roberts said they used the game to their advantage, as the team was able to gain valuable pitching experience.

“We actually ended up using five different pitchers during the game, which is an extreme and rare situation in softball,” Roberts said.

Senior Alyssa Difiore was the lone player on the team to be honored on senior night.

“Senior year was very fun, and I’m going to miss playing under the lights at Lovejoy High School,” Difiore said.
