These girls don’t know what quit means.
With the game tied 5-5 in the seventh inning in the district championship game against Montgomery County on Friday, Oct. 11, Louisiana Lady Bulldogs power hitter Caitlin Bolton stepped to the plate. Bolton had hit one over the fence in the first inning and the fans were screaming for more.
Bolton didn’t disappoint them, smacking a double to score Denise Blackwell from second, making it 6-5. Pitcher Kaitlyn VanHooser got two quick ground outs in the bottom of the seventh and then struck out the final batter to capture the win.
Louisiana will play at home in the sectional game at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16 against Highland.
