The Apalachee High School softball team didn’t play particularly bad Tuesday, but visiting Heritage simply never gave the Lady Wildcats a chance offensively.
AHS managed just one base runner — a two-out single by Kelsie Herbert in the bottom of the fifth — and fell to Heritage 5-0 in region play. The loss overshadowed another quality outing by Lady Wildcat pitcher Becca Meade who recorded five strikeouts and scattered six hits.
“We had trouble catching up at the plate,” AHS coach Mike Cavey said. “We had a few little miscues on defense that cost, but even without those the score would have been 1-0 or 2-0. You have to be able to do something offensively to give yourself a chance. Heritage is going to battle for the top spot in our region.”
