Lady Knights getting hot at the right time
Placeholder Image
Playing their two best games of the season in consecutive contests, the North Central softball team improved their post-season stock by splitting a pair of Region 3-A contests with Great Falls and Lewisville.A 19-3 win over Great Falls was followed by a 12-11 loss to Lewisville, in a battle for third place in the conference. The setback locked first-year head coach Mike Grigsby’s team into fourth-place in the circuit, with a 2-5 record, heading into Tuesday’s regular season finale at McBee. NC begins state tourney play on the road next Thursday.After dividing the two games, Grigsby said he liked the direction which his girls are taking, especially on offense as the Lady Knights’ bats have started to come alive after some early season struggles at the plate.“In all aspects of the game,” he said, “the defense and the offense proved that we could be a team to watch in the playoffs.”Last Tuesday, the Lady Knights took on Great Falls on a very special night for the North Central softball team which said good-bye to three seniors who have made great contributions to the softball program for more than four years.
