Trumann (21-12) could only muster three hits on the day as they lost 8-0 to Pottsville in the opening round of the Class 4A state softball tournament last Thursday in Lonoke. The loss ended the Lady Wildcats' season.

Pottsville used two Trumann errors to plate a run in the top of the first inning to take an early 1-0 lead. Anna Waleszonia struck out leading off for the Lady Wildcats in the top of the first innings as Sydney Callahan grounded out. Olivia Greenwell reached on an error only to be left on base as Daly Taylor struck out. Errors again hurt the Lady Wildcats in the top of the second inning as the Lady Apaches scored another run to make the score 2-0. Hannah Craig walked leading off the bottom half for Trumann before a sacrifice bunt from Lexi Jackson moved her to second base. Maddi Payne struck out looking as Mya Chandler popped out for the third out.
