Our girls fought hard this morning for another win!!! After being down 11-3 in the 1st inning, Rebecca Bennett hit her second home run which was a three run shot over the fence to give the girls some fire. Every single girl contributed today including my injured reserves coming in to play a huge part to help out! The girls were behind the entire game until the 6th inning when we went up one run. The girls put some hits together in the 7th to extend our lead to 20-17. We are beyond proud of how these girls fought so hard today and overcame so much adversity!!!!
Our RLHS Seniors were recently polled to see where they wanted to graduate on Friday, May 26. Almost unanimously, they voted that they wanted to hold the graduation ceremony in the stadium. So, weather permitting, the RLISD graduation ceremony will take place on Friday, May 26, on the Cougar Field.
