Brookfield's softball team fell to Louisiana on Thursday night, 8-2. With one game remaining in the regular season next week at Milan, the Bulldogs fall to 4-18 while Louisiana improves to 6-14.

Both of the Bulldog seniors were recognized on Thursday evening between the junior varsity and varsity games.

Brookfield coach Paige Drescher complimented their contributions to the program, and said that she was proud of them for giving the Bulldogs all they had to give.

"Brittnee (Sharp) and Morgan (Kornbrust) are just two great kids who I've had the pleasure of growing up around," Drescher said. "I'm glad they stuck it out all four seasons, and they'll be missed."

In Thursday night's game, the 'Dogs gave up runs in four of the first five innings. Brookfield managed five hits, and Drescher attributed some of that inefficiency to misfortune.

She believes that her team has improved at the plate, but of course, there is a lot of room left for further improvement.

"We were hitting the ball solidly more consistently. Our offense came together," Drescher said. "Last night wasn't our best game defensively."

The Bulldogs committed four errors to just one for Louisiana.

After Brookfield's date with the Milan Wildcats at their place on Monday night, the Bulldogs open district play at 7 p.m. on Wednesday in Macon against South Shelby. The winner of their game gets Marceline the next evening.
