Reporter/Bill Martin Hoping to use a big win over Salado to vault them into league play, the Rockdale Lady Tigers hopes were doused by the rainy weather.

Instead, the 8- 6 Lady Tigers will have to wait one more day to lift the lid on the District 23-3A chase, hosting Smithville (2-10) Wednesday.

LaGrange is the lone ranked team in the district at No. 20 with a 13-5 mark.

The Tigers were third last season and had to win five straight and then an additional playoff game to reach the state playoffs.

They fell to Bellville in a onegame bi-district playoff.

The Lady Tigers have reached the playoffs six times in the past seven years and 13 times in the 18-year history of the program.

Senior catcher Britni Newlin leads the Lady Tigers in hitting with a blistering .650 average, followed by Kayleigh Montelongo’s .450 mark.

Montelongo and Amanda Boyd lead the Lady Tigers with seven runs batted in apiece.

In the 9-5 victory over a 12-6 Salado team last Tuesday, Newlin was 3-for-4 with three runs batted in, including an important three-run double in the sixth.
