Published 6:09 pm Wednesday, May 7, 2014

Back-to-back losses at a state tournament Friday ended the season for the Crenshaw Christian Academy Lady Cougars on a low note.

The first game, against Pickens Academy, closed with a score of 24-2, in Pickens’s favor, while the second game ended 12-2 in favor of Coosa Valley Academy.

Head softball coach Rachel Senn said the ending was harsh, but the girls worked hard to make it that far.

“The season started off pretty rocky,” she said.

“But at the end, they improved a lot because they knew what they wanted and what they could do.

“I was really proud of them for what they accomplished.”

The team, she said, will lose four seniors, all of whom are starters: Morgan Acerman, first base; KlaRissa Stubbs, short stop; Madison Tranum; outfield; and Cortlyn Boyd, pitcher.

Stubbs also said the losses were a disappointing end to the season, but the team played its hardest and she was glad to have made it so far.

“When they have good hitters up there and just slam it, you can’t help that,” she said.

“As a senior, I am kind of disappointed to see it end like that, but I’m proud of what we did and I’m proud to be a Crenshaw Cougar.”
