HAVING A BALL — Dozens of


young girls braved the heat and
humidity last weekend in the
annual Lady Texan Softball Camp
at Northwest High School . The
future stars learned a variety of
skills including hitting, fielding,
throwing and sliding. Pictured,
from left, Maddie Dodger of
Haslet is proud of her catch of
the day. Angelica Szmanski ices
down after getting hit in the head
by a softball for the second time
during camp. Miley Harris is all
smiles while waiting her turn in
the batting cages.
