The sun set on the 2010 softball season in Glen Rose on Tuesday.
The Lady Tigers wrapped up their 1-9 district campaign with a 6-2 loss to the Hillsboro Lady Eagles on Senior Night.
Seniors Anjelica Lisauckis, Danielle Whitlock, Carolyn Barnes and Alyssa Griggers were honored before the game.
"This is a wonderful group of senior girls to work with," said head coach Kiel Miller. "Anjelica's bat really came around this season and we're going to miss that. Carolyn was our best hitter with runners in scoring position, Danielle has improved so much in the last two years and Alyssa is just a great teammate, whether she was playing or on the bench. It's really going to hurt losing them."
In their final outing, Glen Rose hosted the Lady Eagles, whom they had already beaten once this season.
Hillsboro got the better of the Lady Tigers this time around, taking advantage of five Glen Rose errors in a 4-run victory.
Jessie Calkins and Alex Dahl each went 2-3 from the dish while Lisauckis and Barnes each recorded one base hit.
"We struggled hitting the ball after we got runners on base," said Miller. "We just couldn't get them home."
Calkins went the distance on the mound allowing 10 hits and no earned runs while striking out three.
Miller will bring back six of the nine starting Lady Tigers next season, including pitcher Jessie Calkins, third baseman Teryl Dunn and outfielder Ashely Corcoran who will enter their third varsity season as starters under Miller.
"The game scores didn't reflect how much we improved this season," said Miller. "We had a lot of young players and they got better and will continue to get better. Not to mention, we actually hit the ball this season.
"When I go back and check the season stats, I'm pretty sure our strikeout numbers are going to be way down," he continued. "This season we had two girls hit over .300 in district (Calkins, .308 and Dunn, .333) and we had none last year."
