A promising start in the first round of the Class 5A regional turned into disappointment for the Lady Redskins in a 15-2 loss that ended their season at 6-15.

Khiley Davis walked and Alize tatum followed with a hit in the first inning, and Kaeleah Chaloupek hit a two-RBI double to score Davis and Tatum to give the Lady Redskins a 2-0 lead.

But Maize responded with six runs in the bottom half of the inning, and the Lady Redskins never crossed home plate again in a 15-2 loss.

“Maize was a fine-tuned machine of young gals,” Liberal coach Jason Wilson said. “They were impeccable at their approaches at the plate, their defense was flawless, they didn’t make mistakes. They capitalized on our mistakes.”

The wind was strong Wednesday in Maize, and the Lady Redskins struggle to get good reads on the ball off the bat, causing the fielding to struggle.

“Chaloupek did a really good job of keeping the ball in the zone and forcing them to hit the ball,” Wilson said. “At times we made plays, at other times it got away from us. They are  20-2 and going to the state tournament for a reason. That is where we want to get to with our development.”

Wilson completed his first season at the helm of the Lady Redskin program, and while the rebuilding process took steps forward, there is always a desire for a quicker turnaround.

“You want instant gratification,” Wilson said. “To get it built up, you have to look at other intangibles besides wins and losses. The C-team played nine games, went 3-5-1, and they had some success, that keeps them eager. Go to JV, they went 12-6. The learned fundamentals. That group had fun when they played, and it showed with their success. The varsity, went 6-15, but look at the games we played. A multitude of games we let slip away from us. You get used to winning and finishing. Those we lost by one or two runs, we will finish those next year.”

Seniors Chacon, Tatum, Tierra Stoney and Lacie Rush ended their Lady Redskin careers.
