On a cold, windy Saturday morning at the end of spring break on April 8, the Burgin Lady Bulldogs (3-1) softball team made the trip up Interstate 75 to Ludlow. The Bulldogs struggled in their match up against the Trimble County Raiders (7-4). The team continued to lift each other up and stay positive despite the lopsided game, 22-0.

In the top of the first,  Cloey Henson had a  single and Jemma Jenkins was hit by a pitch, but three quick outs ended the Bulldogs chance to score.

The Raiders patience at the plate and big hitters in the line up put 15 runs up in the first inning. Burgin’s Gracie Watkins struggled from the circle, walking 12 of the 15 runs.

After struggling at the plate, the Bulldogs loaded the bases but left all the ducks on the pond with three outs. Haley Hurst had a hit and Henson and Kynlee Sexton were both walked.

Burgin had two strikeouts for the game, as well as missed opportunities at outs via errors. After two and a half long innings for the Bulldogs, the Raiders came out on top 22-0.

The Bulldogs rallied in their second game on Saturday and beat the Ludlow Panthers 27-8.

They face Eminence at 6 p.m. on their home field, Friday, April 14 and travel to Menifee County on Saturday to play the Lady Cats at 2 p.m.
