Lady Wildcats open season on fire

Lose only one game so far to Branford

Live Oak — The Lady Wildcats of Melody Christian Academy opened the season on fire. They are currently 5-1. Head coach Tim Smith and pitching coach Katie Kinsey, added six new names and seven returning members to the rooster this year. The Wildcats kicked off the season traveling to Jacksonville to defeat Potter’s House with a 16 – 0 shut-out victory.  
The Feb. 7 game against Lafayette was canceled due to rain but the Ladies hit the field Friday, Feb. 8 with another nail biting success against visiting Meadowbrook 11 – 7.  


The Wildcats traveled to Jefferson to battle their first district game Monday, Feb. 11 and brought home a 12 – 8 triumph!  


The Feb. 12, 10 – 3 win over hosted John Paul II out of Tallahassee, where pitcher Jordan Alger delivered 10 strike outs, has given this team a celebrated initiation.  


The ladies were defeated by the Branford High School Buccaneers Feb. 15 with the final score of 14-9.


“It is always amazing to see the other teams face when they realize just how young our players are,” assistant coach Todd Redish said. “When they find out three of our starting players are only 12-years-old they just stand there with their mouths open!”

Returning players are # 14 Jordan Alger (Fr.) - Pitcher; #4 Hailey Baker (So.) – Catcher/3rd;  #11 Brittany Breedlove (Jr.) - Shortstop; #7 Miranda Townsend (Fr.) - 1st; #10 Lizzie Brooks (Jr.) – OF/2nd; #15 Shavaughnya Hampton (Jr.) – OF, 1st; #3 Nadreana Thomas (8th grade) – OF; New players are #1 Brian Hofer (7th grade) – OF; #00 Skylar Redish (7th grade) – 3rd/Catcher; #17 Sana Sato (Jr.) – CF;  #19 Mikayla Senea (So.) – OF;  #2 Meagan Shearer (Fr.) – OF; and #8 Briana Williams (6th grade) – 2nd.
