Houston working through schedule
The Lady Toppers MHSAA realignment puts them facing only New Albany and Shannon in division play, but they’ve got plenty of work ahead of them before they break into it.
The Houston girls loaded their schedule with their usual assortment of experienced programs to better prepare them for division play and are working their way through some losses in hopes of gaining the experience to come out on top in the end.
“Tough schedules equals tough games,” said coach Jeffrey Mann.
The Houston girls fell to East Webster Aug. 26, depsite a five-run rally in the bottom of the fourth and two homers by senior Chelsea Gates.
They traveled to Smithville Aug. 28, where they fell 0-9 to the Lady Seminoles.
“Our bats have been quiet,” Mann said. “Slow pitch goes that way some times. We will work hard to wake them up.”
The Lady Toppers took a break from games over the Labor Day holiday, but went right back into action Tuesday against New Hope and will play their next four games on the road against Houlka, Calhoun City, East Webster and in the Caledonia tournament.
They will return home Sept. 16 to break division play against New Albany and host Shannon Sept. 17.
