Louisville High School fast-pitch softball coach Chad Gipson said the
future is bright for the Lady Wildcats.

“I really thought the girls improved throughout the year in every
aspect,” Gipson said. “Our pitching and defense really improved and
we made some strides with our hitting as well.

“We are so young, but so talented,” Gipson said. “There is going to
be some great years ahead for them. The just need to work hard and
compete every day. There is a real foundation that has been laid here
and they did a great job of doing that. They will look back on this
tough season and see where they started and where they have come from.”

The Lady Wildcats closed out the 2013 season last week with losses to
Kosciusko (13-3) and Union (18-6) to end the season at 3-15.

Ayana Taylor led LHS offensively against Kosy with a double and a
single, while Brooklyn Hill delivered a pair of singles. In the loss
to Union, Taylor and Diamond Wraggs had two hits each.
