Gering girls finish softball season
     2012-10-15      By Citizen Staff   
The Gering Lady Bulldogs entered the Class B, District 6 softball tournament in McCook as the top seed, but were eliminated after a 15-1 loss to Cozad.

The Haymakers got on the board in a hurry on Sept. 5 with four runs in the first inning. They scored another six runs in the second and never looked back. The team’s final five runs came in the fourth inning.

Miscues on defense hurt the Bulldogs, who committed five errors while Cozad had none. Gering only managed two hits compared to 14 for the Haymakers.

Gering opened the tournament on Sept. 4, losing a close a one-run 19-18 game to Lexington. Later in the day, the Bulldogs bounced back with a convincing 21-10 victory over Alliance. But they ran out of gas on Friday in the elimination game with Cozad.

Even with the earlier-than-expected exit from post-season play, the team was proud of what they accomplished. Gering finished the regular season with a 21-7 record, just one victory shy of the school’s season record for most wins.

Two of their goals, to win the Scottsbluff Tournament and run off a 12-game winning streak were accomplished.

Although some key players will be lost next season to graduation, the team still has a good group of younger players who will step up to grow the program in the next few years.
