The McLean County High School softball team ended their season with a 10-0 loss to the Lady Eagles in the first round of the 10th District Tournament held at Muhlenberg County on May 20. The final record for the 2019 season was 7-20.
The Lady Cougars struggled to put runs on the board and had a tough time defensively containing Ohio County. Taylor Galloway led McLean County with one hit in two at bats. Kashlynn Rice had the most chances in the field with eight.
Karissa Fannon took the loss for the Lady Cougars. She lasted one inning, allowing seven hits and eight runs while striking out one and walking one.
"Although our record doesn't show it, we had a very positive season," commented head coach Brad Baird. "Ashleigh Bobo averaged over .400 batting with Ashley Vaught and Kashylnn Rice not far behind her. Both Vaught and Rice were terrors on the base path stealing bases. We struggled defensively early in the season to make routine plays, but were playing much better at the end. The girls played hard and fought until the last out in every game. These girls want to get better and excel for the years to come. I had girls texting and calling the day after our last game wanting to know when we could start working on hitting, pitching and catching. Losing our only senior, Karissa, will hurt but knowing everyone else will be back next season is very exciting."
