The Lady Seahawk varsity softball team went 2-0 last week defeating district foes Liberty County and Vernon.
On Wednesday, March 15, the team played at Liberty County and won by a score of 17-4. Sophomore Jaylin Charles was the winning pitcher, throwing all five innings in a game shortened by the 10-run rule. Charles gave up three hits, two walks and had three strikeouts.
Charles also helped her cause by going 2 for 4 at the plate with four RBIs. Juniors Sophia Kirvin and freshman Abby Johnson also had two hits each. Eighth grader Brooklyn O'Neal, junior Alexus Johnson, and eighth grader Sage Brannan all had one hit each.
On Friday, March 16, the team hosted Vernon and trounced the Yellow Jackets by a score of 15 - 0 as once again the game was shortened, this time due to the 15-run rule at the end of the fourth inning.
Brannan pitched all four innings, throwing a no-hitter with two walks and six strikeouts. Abby Johnson led all hitters going 3 for 3 with three doubles. Sister Alexus Johnson added an inside-the-park homerun and a single.
Kirvin had two triples. Junior Melanie Collins, Brannan, and Charles all had two hits. Senior Michaela Cassidy, senior Madison Smith and O'Neal each added a single as the Lady Seahawks pounded out 17 hits.
"We did a lot of good things this week and the girls are getting better at focusing on every pitch,” said coach Scott Collins.
