The Lincoln County High School softball team played a doubleheader on Tuesday against Agassi. The Lady Lynx won both games with ease.
Agassi is a young team, and Coach Danny Lloyd said “they will get a lot better later on.” But as for right now, they were no match for Lincoln.
Lloyd added, “The whole team was getting solid hits.” Freshmen Sadie Soderborg started the first game and pitched well, only giving up one run.
“Our pitching and our offense were clicking, but we were flat footed on defense,” Lloyd said. Luckily for the Lady Lynx the other team didn’t hit a lot.
Lincoln kept up the hitting parade in the next game too. Multiple players hit for extra bases and drove in a lot of runs. Senior Hannah Lytle pitched a shutout. She was sending batters back to the dugout left and right.
Lincoln’s pitching has been key all year. Shutouts are becoming normal for the girls, as the team looks to carry its winning streak into the weekend against Cavalry and Lake Mead. Lincoln is 9-7 overall and 3-1 in the Class 2A Southern League. Calvary (3-5, 2-5) games are in Las Vegas today starting at 1 p.m. The team is home tomorrow to take on first place Lake Mead (7-3, 5-0) starting at noon.
