Taylor Canida Hired As New Softball Coach
03/17/18 -

Former Roff High School All-Stater Taylor Canida is looking forward to her first-ever head-coaching gig.

The Ada Board of Education officially hired Canida as the new Ada High School softball coach at a meeting earlier this week.

“I’m very excited. I have great respect for (Ada athletic director Bryan Harwell). We plan to get the softball program up and running,” Canida said. “I see all the other sports right now at Ada doing well ... and we want to get Ada softball up there as well.”

Canida met with a group of Ada’s returning softball players on Wednesday.

“It went really good. We have a good number,” she said.

Her message to the Lady Cougars was loud and clear.

“We’re going to work our tails off. I’m going to love them and I’m going to do whatever I can for them, but we’re going to work really hard and do things the right way,” Canida said. “But we’re going to have fun while we do it.”

Sr. Night For Lady Cougars
09/29/17 -

The Seminole Lady Chieftains took advantage of seven Ada errors and used back-to-back five-run innings to pull away from the Lady Cougars 12-0 on Senior Night Tuesday at the Ada High Softball Complex.

During a postgame ceremony, Ada fans said goodbyes to seniors Colbi Hargus and Presley Hayes.

“We’re going to miss those girls a lot next year,” said Ada head coach Pete Benes. “Colbi’s been a good leader for us. Presley’s  came back to help us last week and will help us in the playoffs too.”

Pirates Defeat Cougars
09/27/17 -

BYNG — Everything seemed to go right for the Byng High School softball team during its contest with Ada Monday night at Bobby Johns Field. And Murphy’s Law caught up with the Lady Cougars.

That combination resulted in a 19-0 victory for the Lady Pirates.

Byng improved to 18-14 this fall, while Ada dropped to 0-21.

While the Lady Pirates were pounding out 17 hits in just four innings, the Lady Cougars piled up 10 errors.

Ada’s best chance at a run came in the top of the third when Alyssa Colungo and Madison Wilson drew back-to-back one-out walks. But Feazle got the next two batters to pop up to first base and ground out to end that threat.

Seminole Defeats The Lady Cougars
09/19/17 -

Before the start of the Ada High softball team’s matchup with host Seminole Saturday afternoon at the Seminole Quad Softball Complex, I approached head coach Pete Benes and told him I had a feeling about that contest.

However, that feeling didn’t pan out.

The Lady Cougars have knocked on the door of victory a number of times, but for the most part, errors and slammed the door shut.

It happened again Saturday as the Lady Chieftains took advantage of seven Ada errors and defeated the locals 9-1.

Ada head coach Pete Benes entered the 2017 season with a defensive lineup that he and his coaching staff thought would be solid this fall. But he lost a couple of key cogs in that defensive unit early in the campaign, and the Lady Cougars have been shuffled around to find the right mix ever since. And for most days, it hasn’t worked out.

Tish Takes Down Lady Cougs
09/16/17 -

If it weren’t for bad luck, the Ada High softball team wouldn’t have very much at all.

Tishomingo, ranked No. 17 in Class 3A, took advantage of nine Ada errors and shut out the Lady Cougars 8-0 Thursday evening at the Ada High Softball Complex.

The Lady Indians improved to 22-6, while the Lady Cougars dropped to 0-17.

Tish ace Grace Anderson overpowered the AHS lineup. She struck out 12, scattered three hits and didn’t allow a walk in the impressive complete-game shutout.

Madison Wilson (2-for-3) had two of the Lady Cougars’ hits. She reached on an infield single in the bottom of the first inning and hit a line drive to right field for a base hit in the bottom of the seventh.

In the first inning, Wilson stole second and third but couldn’t get home. She was thrown out stealing in the seventh.

Ada’s other hit came on a sharp single to right field by pinch-hitter Makenzi Marion in the bottom of the sixth.

Zoie Graham had a strong outing at Ada’s catcher, throwing out three different Tishomingo runners.

Anderson helped her own cause as the plate, going a perfect 4-for-4 with two doubles and three runs scored. Laney Rogers went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Tishomingo’s nine-hit attack. Cheyanne Arkansas had a base hit and scored twice for the visitors.

AHS pitcher Alyssa Colungo absorbed the loss. She struck out two, walked five and allowed four earned runs.

The Lady Cougars travel to Seminole at noon today and head to Sulphur at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

There’s been one change in the Ada High schedule. Head coach Pete Benes has added a varsity home game at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 26 against Seminole. That new contest will be Senior Night at the Ada High Softball Complex.
