Tracy can't beat Wabasso playing shorthanded softball
The Tracy girls softball team participated in the conference tournament at Wabasso on Wednesday, July 31.
In the first game against Clements they won by a score of 16-0 in four innings (15 run rule after 3rd inning). The locals pounded out 17 hits in this game.
In the second game they lost to Wabasso 11-6 in a seven inning game, giving up 8 runs in the first two innings and were not able to come back.
"We played short-handed in the second game, one player short and had to give up an automatic out at that spot in the batting order (vacations and sports camps)," said Coach Paul Skoglund. "It was a challenge defensively missing one fielder but the girls played very good ball. Our defense turned two double plays against Wabasso and Kristina Anderson hit a monster home run."
The girls play Wanda at Wabasso Wednesday, Aug 7 at 7:30 p.m. in a game for third place. Seaforth faces Wabasso for the championship.
