Dunn hits home run in GMC loss



“I would just have to say that there’s no questioning the competitive drive of these girls. I think, more than anything, they just put a lot of pressure on themselves,” Brooker said. “One through 14, I could start any of those girls and we would put out a strong lineup. So, a little bit of that is the competing from practice carrying over and putting a little pressure on themselves, but we’ll get there; we’ll work it out.”

With everyone coming back this season, Brooker admits that the Lady Bulldogs are going to have to show up every game, as they will not be able to surprise anyone this year.

“The first thing I told the girls was that there is not sneaking up on anybody this year. People saw us a win away from the state championship game, and we beat Eagles Landing [Christian Academy] twice last year,” she said. “They probably came out saying, ‘we’ve got nothing to lose,’ and played a little looser than us.

“It’s tough; it’s a totally new dynamic we’ve got to get used to for this season,” she added. “We’re going to get there; I’m not worried about it.”

While Friday night’s outcome might have damaged their pride a little, the GMC Prep girls plan to regroup and learn from the loss.

“You learn more from losses than you do from wins, and we were inches away from that one,” Brooker said.

GMC Prep jumps back into action today as they travel to Perry for a doubleheader, beginning with the junior varsity game at 4:15 p.m. and the varsity at 5:55 p.m.
