DeSoto County first baseman Hayden Lipe makes a nice running catch near the fence in foul territory. Lipe had a key double in the fourth to put two runners in scoring position in the 5-3 season ending loss to the Academy of Holy Names.

Just after the DeSoto County’s 5-3 loss in their final game of the season, seniors McKayla Jeter (left) and Katelynn Johnson get together for their last time in a Bulldogs uniform. The seniors have been four-year starters for the team. Jeter will play at Ave Maria next year and Johnson will be in Georgia at Darden College.

The last three seasons for the DeSoto County varsity softball teams have all ended the same way. Three years ago the Bulldogs suffered a fourth-inning implosion and the game ended on senior Katie Hunter’s pop up. Last year against the Academy of Holy Names, a fourth-inning meltdown again cost the Bulldogs the chance to continue in the playoffs. Another senior outfielder grounded out to end the season.

Last week the 2013 Lady Bulldogs ended their season with a 5-3 loss to the Academy of Holy Names in Tampa. This year it was a badly played third inning that cost the Bulldogs the chance to go on. Also, it was a junior outfielder who grounded out to end the season. The final scores all had the Bulldogs on the losing end, however, and another loss to end the season.
