The Choctaw Central Lady Warriors went 2-for-3 last week in fast-pitch softball action and scored their first Region 5-3A victory of the season.
Brooklyn Bell of Choctaw Central connects with the ball in an earlier game against Union this season. Choctaw Central has three games this week, including region contests against Philadelphia on Tuesday and Choctaw County on Thursday. They visit Leake Central on Friday.
The Lady Warriors started the week with a 5-3 win over Union. They then knocked of region rival Southeast Lauderdale 12-0. In the final game of the week, they dropped a 10-8 decision to Louisville.
"We really played well in the first two games of the week," Coach Aaron Terrell said. "But it didn't carry over in the game with Louisville. We have to learn you can't take anything for granted. We still have nine region games to play."
Choctaw Central enters the week with an overall record of 6-3 and 1-0 in the region. They play three games this week, taking on region foes Philadelphia at home Tuesday and traveling to Choctaw County on Thursday. On Friday, the Lady Warriors travel to Leake Central.
