High school softball: Experienced Cochrane-Fountain City squad anxious to play ball

Trojans finish 2-1 at home tourney

Trojans finish 2-1 at home tourney

Schuyler County junior pitcher Cody Amen managed to get out of the first inning unscathed.

Decatur Heritage struck first Monday when Jeff Hunter crushed the first pitch he saw from Adams for a home run in the top of the first inning.

Taylor Scott homered twice and drove in five while Haley Caldwell went 4-for-6 at the plate with six runs batted in and a three-hit day in the night cap. "We didn't have any errors on the board, and there was nothing else we could do". "I thought we were rusty at the beginning, but we also haven't been outside to play softball since we won last Friday".

Lincolnview reliever Chayten Overholt was tasked with holding the Bearcats to zero runs in the bottom of the fifth and end the game in five. A fielder's choice from Kobe Semien's and sacrifice fly by Nick Cambias produced two more runs.

The fourth inning bore an additional four runs for Lee.

Middlebury got two back in the third, but Amherst was sure to keep its foot on the pedal, adding two more of its own in the bottom of the third. At the top of the fifth inning, Griffin made two outs and Lancaster made the third out.

In the bottom of the second, the Bulldogs again loaded the bases.

There was a lot of "tip your hat to them" from both sides after the No. 1 and No. 2 ranked teams in Class 1A played the first of three area contests this week.


"All-and-all we had a good game, this was one of the few games that we had no errors", Amanda Thomas, catcher and sports & leisure senior said. "It was just what we needed at the right time". "The seventh inning has been a problem for us this season - we need to start finishing out games".

Granado was just as surprised as everyone when he was asked to take over varsity on Monday and he said his goal is to make the transition as easy as possible. Griffin got a hit and made it to first base.

Logan Krantz had three hits, including a double, and the Blackhawks defeated the visiting Bantams in six innings in the opener. Hoeing scored on a passed ball before Wilson walked.

Tatum Dye hit a pair of home runs and the Pioneers continued their hot start to the season with a non-district triumph. We had some close games where we were behind and we able to come back and win it. In the ninth, Michael Tempel and Trevor Powers both had RBI singles to tie the game and Jake Schuster then delivered a go-ahead RBI double that scored Tempel and gave Marywood the lead. "Hopefully, the girls are starting to see we have a good coaching staff and they're starting to believe in us and see we know what we're talking about".

McDearmid took the loss for Bret Harte.

The team's record is 13-19 after the players lost the series with San Angelo.

Rio Grande is scheduled to return to action on Wednesday when former Mid-South Conference rival - and 20th-ranked - Campbellsville University visits Bob Evans Field for a non-conference doubleheader.

Kelsey Eropkin, psychology sophomore, gets an out running to first base during the game against Angelo State, April 7, 2018.
