The Hooks Lady Hornets continued their hot streak into the postseason and left little doubt that they are a team to be reckoned with as they shutout the Cooper Lady Bulldogs in their first round matchup 11-0 and earned a Bi-District championship.

Ace hurler Marena Estell was dominant on the mound and at the plate, aiding her pitching efforts with a 4-4 batting performance. Estell narrowly missed hitting the cycle, with a pair of triples, a single and a double in the contest.

Abby Russ did get that homer for the Lady Hornets with a shot off the bat of Abby Russ in the 4th inning. Estell, Russ and Korey Brooks each had multi-hit performances for Hooks.

On the mound, Estell allowed just one hit and a walk and struck out nine in a near flawless pitching performance.

The Lady Hornets will next challenge Harmony, with the first game of the series scheduled for Friday at 6 p.m. at Northeast Texas Community College in Mt. Pleasant.
