The Warsaw Lady Cats had their first home game of the season and defeated Weaubleau 10-0.
It  had rained off and on all day and it looked like the game would be called. However, even though it rained some during the contest, the field was in good enough condition to play thanks to a great effort by the city crew to dry out the field. Home plate was a mess and was worked on during the game by the umpire, coaches and Adam Howe.
Warsaw scored in the first with a sacrifice fly by Aubrie McRoberts that platted Kya Schepker, who had singled and went to third on a double by Rayni Simons. The hard hitting Reagan Shelby hit into a double play to end the inning.
The Lady Cats would score again when Kylee Fajen singled and scored a double to center by Kiersten Grobe. Fajen went head first into the muddy home plate area. The muddy uniform didn’t slow her down as she pitched another masterful  game, allowing no runs on three hits, striking out seven, and walking just two batters. She pitched out of a couple of jams to complete shut out.
 In the fifth, Weaubleau loaded the bases with one out on a single, a walk and an error by Kya Schepker at second Fajen struck out the next hitter and got L. Steward to pop to Aubrie McRoberts at short to end the threat.
Kinsten Cunningham probably made the defensive play of the game with a nice grab on a hard hit ball to left field in the fourth.
The Lady Cats scored four times in the third. Weaubleau came into the game with high expectations but just couldn’t get going against Fajen and the Lady Cat’s defense. Fajen would steal home as the Lady Cats would steal ten bases on the night for the second game in a row. Fajen had three, Kya Schepker had four, McRoberts, Shelby and Rayni Simons had one a piece.
Shelby did a very nice job behind the plate in catching several fouls balls, including two against the screen. She also went 2-4 with three RBI's.
Schepker had Warsaw’s only error of the game but made up for it  by going 2-3 and scoring three times. Payge Adair was 1-1 with two RBI's.
The Lady Cat’s scored two in the fifth and sixth to round out the scoring on the night. They moved to 5-1 on the season.
