Lady Eagles looking toward softball playoffs

The Eupora Lady Eagles weren’t exactly sure on Wednesday who they
will be facing in the playoffs, but they know they will be there.

Despite dropping a pair of division games earlier this week, the EHS
fast-pitch softball team finished third in the district and thus
earned a spot in the MSHAA Class 2A Softball Playoffs that are set to
begin on Friday.

As of Wednesday morning Eupora head coach Kaley Harris was still
trying to confirm exactly who they will be playing when the event
kicks off on Friday.

The No. 1 seeds in each district get first-round byes, while the No.
2 and No. 3 seeds meet in the play-in round. All No. 2 seeds get the
option of hosting Friday’s single game, or hosting Saturday’s
potential doubleheader in the two-out-of three series.

Harris said her team is just waiting to see who they play and which
day they will play at home.

“We are just glad to be in the playoffs at this point,” she said.
“Things are looking pretty good for us. I think we can play well and
just see what happens.”

Harris said it is the hitting that has been a concern for her team

“We have been hitting, just not on a consistent basis,” she said “We
need to spread our hits around so we can be more effective.”

The Lady Eagles lost to Hamilton 5-3 on Tuesday night and East
Webster 12-5 on Monday. East Webster finished tops in the district,
followed by Hamilton and Eupora.
