The Dade County High School Lady Wolverines softball team got off to a bad start last week when they hosted the LaFayette Lady Ramblers on Tuesday afternoon.

The Lady Ramblers got off to a fast start when they pounded out five first inning hits, throw in pair of walks and two Lady Wolverine errors and its suddenly 7-0 LaFayette.

Dade failed to score in the bottom of the first and the Lady Ramblers added a run in the top of the second to go up 8-0.

KK Castleberry hit a double to lead off the bottom of the second inning and a couple of Lady Rambler errors resulted in a pair of runs to cut the lead to 8-2.

LaFayette added a run in the third and Dade rallied in the fourth for four runs to make it 9-6 after four innings.

The Ramblers answered with another run in the top of the fifth and the Lady Wolverines answered in the bottom with another run to make it 10-7 but the last two innings were scoreless, and Dade dropped their second game of the season 10-7.

The two teams combined for 28 hits and nine errors in the game.

The Lady Wolverines were led by Alyssa Wilson with two hits and three RBIs, Ali Thompson with two hits and one RBI, Kaitlyn Stinnett with two hits, and Kayleigh Warnock with two hits.
