The struggles continued for the Glen Rose Lady Tigers as they dropped a pair of double-digit losses to West and Whitney last week.
Glen Rose traveled to West on April 7 to begin the second round of District 7-3A play, but fell to the hosting Lady Trojans 15-0.
Jessie Calkins went the distance for the Lady Tigers, allowing 10 hits and four walks.
West was able to keep the Tiger bats silent, tossing a three-hitter with Glen Rose’s only hits coming from Dani Weiderich, Danielle Whitlock and Angelica Lisauckis.
The offense turned around for Glen Rose when they made a April 9 trip to Whitney, but the Lady Wildcats would not be denied and sent the Lady Tigers back to Glen Rose with a 17-7 loss.
Calkins took the circle for the second time in 48 hours and again tossed a complete game, allowing 11 hits and two walks.
Calkins managed to “K” three batters.
Glen Rose got some solid production from the lineup with Weiderich reaching base three times, twice on base hits and once when she was hit by a pitch.
Whitlock reached base twice with a base knock and a walk.
Shelby Tankersly, Catelyn Spurgeon, Brielle Nicholson and Carolyn Barnes each went 1-3 from the plate.
In the end, it was errors in the field that led to the downfall as the Lady Tigers committed eight miscues.
Glen Rose returned home on Tuesday to face Gatesville and will hit the road for the final two games of the season, going to China Spring on Friday and Hillsboro on April 21. Both games start at 7 p.m.
