Lady Bulldogs post 3-0 record during own softball tournament


The Quitman Lady Bulldogs ended a solid tournament performance with a walk-off win Saturday afternoon at Quitman Softball Field. 

The Lady Bulldogs fell behind 3-1 to the Bowie Lady Pirates but fought back to tie the game 3-3. Quitman got runners on base when catcher Kynlee Love blasted a line drive off the right-center wall scoring two runs to give Quitman the 5-3 win.

It was their third win of the tournament which lost Thursday’s games due to the rain, but came back and got in two good days on Friday and Saturday. 

The Lady Bulldogs went 3-0. They walloped Detroit in the first game 17-3 followed by a big 8-2 win over North Hopkins before disposing of Bowie Saturday afternoon. 

Pitcher Shelby Hayes took the win in the Detroit game, followed by Tyann Harris taking the win over North Hopkins, and Alexis O’Neal was on the mound for the Bowie win. 

The team is off to a good start under Coach Ryan Turney. His young team has just two seniors on the squad along with five juniors, two sophomores and three freshmen.

The Lady Bulldogs are in the Big Sandy Tournament this weekend.
