Stellar hitting, stingy defense help Lady Roos blank Sam Houston, 15-0, in district competition

The Lady Roos scored 11 of its 15 runs during the first three innings as pitcher Kelso O'Brien finished the contest with nine strikeouts and only one walk.

A triple by Ashleigh Erb, an RBI double by Liz Konig, a two-run single by Taylor Pool, and an RBI single by Meredith Dickey all in the second inning helped fuel Weatherford's offense early in the game.

Konig finished the contest with two RBIs off three hits.

With the win, the Lady Roos improved to 7-1 in District 3-5A competition. The varsity will host Arlington Bowie tomorrow (Tuesday) beginning at 6 p.m. The junior varsity matchup against the Lady Vols will immediately follow at the conclusion of the varsity game (photos by DERIK MOORE).
