Winona softball dropped a Region 5-3A game to Choctaw Central 5-2.
“They didn't overpower us,” said Lady Tiger Coach Steven Helms. “We put a lot of balls in play. Defensively, they're pretty solid. They make the routine plays. We hit routine balls.”
Allyn Claire Gant had a double, two singles and both RBIs for Winona.
“Our defense is playing too well for us not to produce runs,” Helms said, citing an inability to get key hits with runners on base. “We're striking out or grounding out or doing something stupid.”
The Lady Tigers had a rematch with Choctaw Central Tuesday, a game Winona had to win to have a chance for the payoffs. The Lady Tigers have a home game Thursday with Nanih Waiya and will be on the road Friday against Riverside.
