LOVEJOY – In its first-ever postseason appearance, the McKinney Boyd softball team made its presence felt with a 14-0 win over Dallas Skyline in game one of its opening round series.

“Up and down the lineup we hit really well,” head coach Maureen Fritz said. “They were ready to play and they were excited.”

The Lady Broncos will return to Lovejoy Saturday at 10 a.m. for game two of the series and again at 1 p.m. for game three if necessary.

Being that it was her girls first-ever playoff game, Fritz was hoping that they would rise to the occasion and play their style of softball and she was very pleased to see that they were well-prepared.

“We played at out level,” she said. “The energy was high and it was exactly what we wanted to see in a first-round series.”

In addition to winning their big game, the Lady Broncos also saw the return of junior Emily Becker, who came back from an injury to resume her spot at second base. Fritz said she’s excited to have Becker back in the lineup because of the great things she’s been able to do both offensively and defensively.

McKinney Boyd’s Prom will take place tomorrow night and Fritz expects her girls to do everything in their power to put this first round series away at the 10 a.m. game rather than risk having to play again at 1 p.m.

“What we just did right now will carry over into tomorrow morning,” he said. “My kids have prom and it’s just more incentive to take care of business and get out of here.”
