WCS Lady Stars
The Winona Christian Lady Stars are up to nine wins on the season and are currently 1-1 in district play.
The Lady Stars fell to North Delta Tuesday night 11-4 in Batesville, behind what head coach Mike Montgomery called “five costly errors.”
The Lady Stars led the game 4-2 until the fifth inning, and in that inning five errors allowed the Lady Green Wave to score seven runs.
“We’re improving,” Montgomery said. “It’s just one of those deals where our youth have about four or five great games and a few errors get in the way.”
The Lady Stars jumped out early on North Delta when Sara Grace Flatt had two RBI when she knocked in Megan Macko and Caitlyn Castille for a 2-0 lead. In the third inning, Macko reached base and scored on a Castille RBI. Castille would later score on a Flatt double.
