Young Lady Jackets softball surprising

Meridian's bats were hot against Rio Vista, pounding out 13 hits.

 

Despite fielding a young team without a single senior on the squad, the Meridian Lady Jacket softball team appears to be growing up quick. After struggling in the Glen Rose Tournament Feb. 21-23, the Lady Jackets rebounded for a solid week of softball, knocking off Rio Vista, 10-7, last Tuesday before winning two more games in the Riesel Tournament last weekend. “We played pretty good this week, I thought,” Meridian softball head coach Griffin Fields said. “We played a good Axtell and Bremond team in the tournament, who wound up playing in the championship game.”
