The Lady Bombers have been entering the strike zone, playing at a tournament and festival. They competed at the Fort Cobb Tournament and followed up at the Mangum Festival.
Frederick’s game ended abruptly only a half of an inning into opening competition at the Fort Cobb Tournament. A member of the rival team suffered a severe break to her leg.
Frederick was leading this game and won due to a forfeiture by their opponent.
Third ranked Fletcher was a strong competitor for Frederick. “They are the best team we’ve seen all year,” explained Miles Smith, head coach of the Lady Bombers.
The coach examined the game’s outcome, stating “We made some defensive mistakes in the game and it hurt us a little bit. Fletcher hit the ball well enough that if we had not made those mistakes, they could’ve rivaled us for a victory anyways.” Fletcher won 11-5. Next up for the Lady Bombers was Indiahoma.
“It was probably the worst game we’ve played all year long. It was a really, really bad day. I think we made an estimated ten errors and we didn’t hit the ball at all, until the very last inning. By then, the game was out of hand anyway,” commented Smith. Indiahoma defeated Frederick 23-8.
Frederick earned a 1-2 record at the Fort Cobb Tournament. The coach felt that the varsity team played better at the Mangum Festival. “We’re focused where we are supposed to be. I thought we played pretty good at the festival,” Smith shared.
The Lady Bombers opened against Mangum.
“I thought we had opportunities to win the game. We hadn’t been on the field much because of the rain conditions, but I felt that we gave a good performance. I thought we hit the ball really well. Mikeala Bray hit well. Emily Howard had a good day at the plate, earning around five base hits. Cordelle Elsener, Savanha Smith and Shelby Duggins hit well. Kimber Treadwell had a couple of good hits. I thought up and down the lineup we hit well all day long,” the head coach said.
Mangum slid past Frederick 8-7.
Next on the agenda for the Lady Bombers was Elk City.
“I thought the whole team played well. We hit well and in that game we were sharp defensively,” said Smith. Frederick pounced on Elk City 16-0.
The Lady Bombers went 1-1 at the Mangum Festival.
