A home run by freshman Maddison Terry wasn’t enough as the Redhawks softball team fell to Lone Star 16-5 in a District 9-5A home game Tuesday night. 

“We were able to score some runs,” head coach Jill Bradshaw said. “More runs than we have been able to score in the past. Still just defense wasn’t able to keep their part. But, Maddison, I was so proud of her. It’s really good when a freshman can step up and be able to perform like that for us.”

For Terry her first home marked a milestone. 

“It felt good to get a home run,” she said. “It was my first one in high school, but there will be many more to come. I am really proud of myself.”

Being able to put together some offense, playing stronger defense will help the Redhawks according to Terry. 

“It was a good game, although we can improve on getting our third out quicker,” she said. “Because we spend a lot of time with two outs without getting our last out. Overall though, our team hit really well this game. We tied hits together and worked to put 5 on the board.
