For as much as softball is a physical game, it equally involves mental focus.
That mental preparedness at the plate was the difference in victory and defeat for the Starkville Academy Lady Volunteers on Saturday, who dropped a 13-5 contest to the Jackson Victors.
"We watched too many strike threes and that is unacceptable," Lady Volunteers coach Kayla Mosley said. "Six strikeouts out of 19 at-bats is just not ready to hit. You have to be more mentally prepared and more aggressive."
