Teams prepare for final stretch

MOORE — By Michael Kinney

Sports Editor

Last week Southmoore and Westmoore faced off on the softball diamond for the final time this regular. It the Jaguars who came away with the 3-2 over their rival.

“My team played very well,” Westmoore coach Jenny Rollins said. “Destinie Lookout pitched a really good game, and our defense did a good job behind her. Offensively we got the job done, even though I would not say it was one of our best showings. We had some people come through with clutch hits at the right time.”

The win was one of several solid victories Westmoore has used to improve to 21-6 heading into this week. That includes games against Midwest City and Broken Arrow.

“Bailey Whitmore, Destinie Lookout, Sydnee Ramsey have had solid performances in the past week,” Rollins said. “But really most of our wins in the past couple weeks have been dog fights and different kids have come through every time. I like seeing them really compete.”

While Westmoore has not been blowing teams off the field like they have done in the past, Rollins likes the makeup of this team.

“Our scores have not been overwhelming lately, playing tight games,” Rollins said. “But I love this fight I see in my kids, them competing for seven innings and working together. I will take that over large numbers any day.”

The Jaguars are in a three way battle for first place in district 6A-4 along with Owasso and Broken Arrow. They close out the regular season with contest against Ponca City, Stillwater and Moore.

“I want to see the same thing they have been doing the last week or two,” Rollins said. “We need solid defense, good pitching in the circle and disciplined hitters at the plate. I love this team. I am excited for the remainder of this season.”
