The Wills Point Lady Tiger softball team was scheduled to compete in their second tournament of the 2017 season beginning Feb. 23 in Big Sandy. The next Wills Point home game will be March 7 against Lindale.

The Wills Point Lady Tigers wasted little time in getting a jump on their 2017 season, taking to the field six times over a three-day stretch with games at the Sulphur Springs Tournament sandwiched around a home date against Quinlan.

The Lady Tigers began play at the Sulphur Springs Tournament Feb. 16 with a contest against Caddo Mills. Defensive miscues and solid Caddo Mills hitting proved to be less than ideal for the Lady Tigers in a 15-2, four-inning loss.

Wills Point finished with just three hits in the contest, getting singles from Hailey Hoover, Dee Donaldson and Alexis Mosley. MacKenzie Bolt registered the lone RBI for the Lady Tigers with a second-inning sacrifice against the Lady Foxes.

Wills Point kept things more competitive in their second game of the tournament, dropping a 9-7 decision to Omaha Paul-Pewitt. Errors were once again a key storyline with three Wills Point errors leading to six unearned runs.
