In the Pink Out game for breast cancer awareness, Diana Brothers, a breast cancer survivor and the wife of Spence Coach Scott Brothers, threw out the first pitch before the North Dallas played Hillcrest on Tuesday at the North Dallas softball field.

Diana Brothers, who has been battling cancer for past few years, said Tuesday that she is cancer free.

Hillcrest won the game to maintain its hold on the District 12-4A lead. The Lady Bulldogs are 6-3 in district play.

Asked what the girls take away from the loss, North Dallas Coach Chris Barnhill noted, “They didn’t work hard enough in practice; they need to focus when they are at bat; [and] get their glove down and make plays.”

Barnhill said getting “them all here for a good practice” will help the Lady Bulldogs.

North Dallas plays Lincoln at 4:30 p.m. Friday in a 12-4A game on the North Dallas softball field.
