MacArthur traveled to Ardmore on Aug. 24 to kick off the week. Kaitlyn Adair started the scoring when she plated two runs off of an error. Danielle Powers drug in another run in the third inning to lengthen out the Lady Highlander lead.

After giving up six runs in the bottom of the third inning, it took Mac until the fifth inning when three runs came across to tie up the game. MacArthur took the lead back once again with five runs in the top of the sixth inning. The Lady Highlanders just could not hang on, taking the heartbreaking loss in extra innings.

Mac hosted the Altus Lady Bulldogs the next day looking to get back on track. Falling behind early, Danielle brought in a run in the bottom of the third inning to cut into the deficit. In the bottom half of the fourth inning, Abby Albert went big fly to slice into the Altus lead once again. The Lady Bulldogs distanced themselves, but it was Kennedy Fisher’s turn to slice into the lead with a two RBI triple.

The Lady Highlanders just could not contain the Altus offense as they dropped the game by five runs. When Mac took on Chickasha on Thursday, Aug. 27, the bats were as hot as the southwest Oklahoma sun. The Lady Highlanders had six of the nine starters earn- ing an RBI, with Allie Monroe having herself a multiple RBI night.

If it were a football game, the score would have been enough to satisfy the offensive and defensive coordinators. However, this was a softball game and a barn-burner of a game at that. The Fightin’ Chicks bats were deadlier on this day, as they pulled out the win. MacArthur hosted Eisenhower in the first rendition of the Gore War. Hailey Isom of Ike and Kennedy of Mac got the offense started early, both plating a run for their respective sides in the first inning. Jamiya Morgan then put Eisenhower on top in the second inning with an RBI.

Addison Wattenburger tied the game up for the Lady Highlanders in the fourth inning. Hailey then had a sacrifice fly to score Maddi Dulti to give the lead back to the Lady Eagles.

In the bottom of the fifth inning, Danielle tied the game up for the women in green. Eisenhower exploded for five runs in the top of the seventh inning to secure the victory in the first Battle of the Boulevard.

Three words have never had so much meaning as these three do. It is either Lawton High/Ike or Ike/ Lawton High depending on if you ask someone wearing red or baby blue. Eisenhower jumped out to an early lead, thanks to a flurry of hits, walks and a few untimely Lawton High errors, which resulted in five runs in the top half of the inning.

Theresa Briseno, Dylan Sconce and Asharia Bucking- ham all brought in runs for the Lady Wolverines to cut the lead down. Maddi then scored Jamiya to lengthen the lead back out. Dylan and Asharia then responded for Lawton High in the bottom of the fifth inning, pushing it to a one run game. Madi did it again in the clutch for the Lady Eagles scoring a runner to make it a two-run game.

Alyssa Morgan responded in the bottom half, scoring Elizabeth Zinnante to make it a one-run contest once again. The Eagles were able to throw the last punch, however, scoring two runs in the seventh inning to push it to the final score which ended up 9-6. Eisenhower traveled to Carl Albert on Aug. 25 to take on the Titans. Ike jumped out to an early lead when Hailey had an RBI single in the top half of the first inning.

After falling behind by two runs, JJ Williams stepped up to the plate and had an RBI single to cut the lead down to one run. The Lady Eagles could not hold it this close as they ended up getting the loss. Ike took on a southwest Oklahoma foe in the Duncan Lady Demons. Ike saw themselves down by five runs into the middle part of the game.

Jamiya and Madi tried to spark the offense with a triple and sac fly, cutting into the deficit. That was all the Eagle offense mustered as they fell to the Demons. Eisenhower went across town and secured the victory from the Highlanders in the Gore War.
