Lady Warriors hoping to extend softball season

Just a little bit further. That’s what Nanih Waiya High School
softball coach Jennifer Holdiness is looking for out of her Lady
Warriors this season.

“I’m hoping we can make it past South State this year,” Holdiness
said. “We’ve had our chances, but we’ve seen our season end there. I
talked about it a lot last year, but this year I don’t think I have
to. The girls know what our goals are and they are working hard to
achieve them.”

Among the leaders for Nanih Waiya this season will be senior catcher
Kara Lane Nowell, infielder Meagan Robinson, outfielder Bridget Hunt,
and pitchers Brantlie Sheets and Ryan Holdiness.

“We feel like we have a good team and have a good opportunity to
compete for our district championship again,” Holdiness said. “These
girls know what it takes and they seem willing to do what is needed.”

Nanih Waiya opened the season with an 11-10 loss to East Webster on
Monday night and were scheduled to play host to Class 4A West
Lauderdale on Tuesday night.

The Lady Warriors play host to Union on Saturday and then take on
Choctaw Central, Louisville and Union the following week.
Nanih Waiya will be competing with Noxapater, Weir and West Lowndes
for the district title, playing each school twice on a home-and-home
basis.
