Alyssa De Los Santos loves playing Lockhart.
The senior’s three-run home run in the bottom of the first inning provided enough lift to the Lady Rattlers to stave off a Lockhart (7-1 in District 27-5A) rally and hand the Lions their first district loss, 14-3, in five innings.
Observing Lockhart pitcher Amanda White during Gabby Guerrero’s leadoff at-bat, senior Cici Kinere looked over at De Los Santos and whispered, “We can hit off of her.”
