Lady Knights Take First Loss of 2012

The Notre Dame Lady Knight softball team got a late, but strong start to 2012, winning their first nine games.

But in their regular-season finale Thursday afternoon against Sherman Texoma Christian, they got a wake-up call with a sloppy 5-1 loss at home.

Hayli Otto pitched well for most of the game, but a combination of errors and wildness, plus some baserunning errors, doomed the Lady Knights (9-1).

Despite the loss, Notre Dame is still the TAPPS District 1-1A/2A Champion and will host an Area playoff game early next week, with an opponent and date/time still to be determined.
