Lady Tigers compete in softball jamboree
The Nevada Lady Tigers softball team unofficially opened its season over the weekend at the three-team McDonald County jamboree.
Nevada opened play against host McDonald County and then squared off against East Newton County.
Lady Tigers head coach Tammy Holcomb said she was pleased with her team's effort.
“Absolutely,” said Holcomb. “This also gave the coaching staff a chance to see our players in a game-like situation.”
Holcomb continued: “We have multiple players that were able to see different positions, and it was also a chance to get some of those butterflies worked out.”
Final scores and stats for the two contests were not available.
“We did not keep score,” noted Holcomb, adding the jamboree is primarily utilized for player-evaluation purposes.
“We were very pleased with how our players approached different situations and different positions,” said Holcomb.
Holcomb, however, did say their is plenty of room for improvement prior to the Aug. 22 season-opener against McDonald County at Bushwhacker Field.
“We need to have a better approach at the plate,” said the veteran coach, “thinking through scenarios before they happen both offensively and defensively.”
