Playoff bound, again!
The Lady Toppers have had a tendency toward making playoffs for several years and this year is no exception to the rule.
The slow-pitch team took top honors in division and will host Corinth Oct. 15 for round one. The best-of-three series will be played in one day with the winner advancing to the next round.
In addition to their history in playoffs, they also have a history with the Lady Warriors. The Corinth girls put Houston out in last season’s slow-pitch playoffs while Houston returned the favor in the spring, sending the Lady Warriors home from North Half playoffs in fast-pitch.
The Lady Toppers have three seniors who all want to accomplish their goal of making another trip to Freedom Park in Ridgeland.
Taylor Lancaster is a four-year veteran of the team and currently plays third base and said the team is excited about the opportunity to advance to post-season play.
“We are too ready for this year,” Taylor said. “We lost a lot of our starters and we are having to rebuild our team but it’s been working out pretty good.”
Josie Anderson, a six-year player, said the Lady Toppers are ready to play and her level of confidence is solid.
“We were born ready,” Anderson said. “We are different. We like to try new things. Like if something doesn’t work, we will try something else until it does work.”
Chelsea Gates is in her seventh year as a Lady Topper and knows youth is a factor, but believes the older players can lead the team, “by playing hard and working hard to get to where we want to be.”
And that would be?
“Another State Championship,” Gates said.
“Nothing to it but to do it,” said Anderson.
