Lady Tigers fall to Mount Vernon

COMMERCE — The Commerce High School Lady Tigers took Mount Vernon High School to three games last weekend, ultimately falling in the third game 12-2.

The Lady Tigers lost the first game 4-3 on May 2, and then won game two Saturday afternooon 6-3.

“We put up a good fight,” coach Jeff Davidson. “We were area finalists, we went two rounds deep, and that was a great accomplishment. Of course, when you get beat, you’re disappointed, but we finished up 24-8 on the season.”

Davidson said that the team will lose five seniors, two who will play softball at the collegiate level: Kayleigh LeBlanc (A&M-Commerce) and Taite McBee.

“We’re going to lose five seniors, five that were extremely important to our program,” he said. “They were the nuts and bolts of our team.”

According to Davidson, despite the loss of the seniors, the expectations for next year’s team will still be high.

“We have seven squad members returning, so we’ll evaluate our talent and see where we can plug in the holes,” he said. “Our goals will still be high.”

Commerce will be moving to 3A, District 13 with the realignment, an eight team district that includes Caddo Mills, Lone Oak, Van Alstyne and Tom Bean.

Davidson said that the success in the 2014 season was due to contributions from all team members.

“We had a total team effort,” he said. “Our team motto was ‘One Team,’ and we were one team. There were contributions from the whole team.
