Lady Dawgs shut out Lampasas in Battle for U.S. 281

The Burnet High School softball team quickly dispatched of Lampasas on March 8, winning 9-0.

Head coach Hailey Wooten noted the Lady Dawgs (15-3) led 3-0 through six innings and then erupted for six runs in the seventh inning. Burnet recorded 15 hits.

“I always tell them hitting is contagious,” she said. “If we can get our bats rolling, it triggers all the way down. We have the lineup that can be successful.”

Sophomore Landee Harless and senior Savannah Gomez, who signed to play college softball for Concordia University in January, each had three hits. Sophomore pitcher Kyleigh Mott helped her own cause by recording three RBIs, while Harless and sophomore Maddie Moise each had one RBI. Sophomore Camrynn Guthrie was 2 for 2 and recorded two doubles.

“We hit the ball well (throughout the game), but it was right at their players,” the coach said. “Lyndee did a great job. She’s our lead-off batter. She did a great job of getting on base. If she gets on, she’s going to score. She has speed and with the bats behind her, we can get her home. Camrynn, Savannah and Addie Hernandez hit the ball pretty solid.”

Mott struck out 11 of the 27 batters she faced and didn’t issue a walk.

“She was on fire,” Wooten said. “Any ball that was put in play, the defense was there. Kyleigh is a competitor at anything she does. She was hitting her spots with anything we were calling. She was working the plate.”

The Lady Dawgs host Glen Rose on Friday, March 11, at Bulldog Diamonds, 1000 The Green Mile. The junior varsity plays at 5 p.m., while the varsity takes the field at 6:30 p.m.
