Lady Yellowhammers suffer in back-to-back defeats

Last Thursday the Rotan Lady Hammers played two games against the Haskell Maidens and the Hamlin Lady Pipers, ending this year’s early season with back-to-back defeats.

Rotan’s first matchup was against the Haskell Maidens. With the first at bat, the Lady Hammers no luck getting started on offense, suffering a quick three up three down.

Senior pitcher Ryleigh Denton was quick on the first round of defense after she snagged two line drives. Third baseman Mya Gentry and first baseman Kinzie Buchanan made the play for the final out to close the bottom of the first.

The Lady Hammers struggled to stay on base as the Maidens made a double play, followed by a ground out by Freshman Sterling Bowen.

March Was Maddening Last Week in High School Sports

March Madness took on another meaning for everyone in the sports world last week – a week like none other in the history of organized sports with the acceleration of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States.

The Madness was not the bouncing of basketballs in arenas around the country. Instead it was organization after organization trying to determine the viability of continuing to operate – particularly after the suspension of the NBA season and the cancellation of the NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships.

And NFHS-member state high school associations were among those organizations faced with making decisions because the heightened state of the Coronavirus pandemic occurred in the middle of state high school basketball tournaments across the country. While 13 states had completed their tournaments, the remainder were faced with tough decisions throughout the week.
