The Ladycats will take on District 17-4A’s No. 1 seed, the Robinson Rockettes, in the bi-district round of the Class 4A playoffs this Friday night at 6 p.m. at Franklin Ranch Complex in Franklin.
This will be a best two out of three series, with game two following after game one at 8 p.m. Game three (if necessary) to be determined.
Mexia finished the regular season 2-6 in District 18-4A and grabbed the No. 4 playoff seed. Overall, the Ladycats are 10-15-2.
The team is capable of exploding for big time runs and has done so several times throughout the season.
Navarro commit McKenzie Bain leads the Ladycat charge, batting .565 for the season with 39 hits, 28 runs and 28 RBI. Of those 39 hits, 25 have been for extra bases, including 15 doubles, eight triples and two homeruns.
Teammate Gentry Renfro has contributed in major ways to the Mexia attack.
