Shiners News · Softball Wins Pair of Games Over Switz and N. Decatur


The Lady Shiners played one of their most complete games of the season Friday as they defeated Switzerland County 10-0 in five innings.
“Defensively, we committed no errors and offensively, we didn’t strke out and had 12 hits,” said coach Bryce Kendrick. “It’s unrealistic to expect that every game but it’s certainly what we strive for.  I really liked the effort.”
Sophomore Sydney Pitts threw a 4-hitter with 10 strikeouts against no walks.  She also had two hits at the plate and 2-RBI.  Also of note, freshman Lindsay Montgomery homered and singled twice with 3-RBI.  Junior Lucy Phelps also homered to give Rising Sun it’s 15th team home run of the season, breaking the record of 14 HRs set by the 2015 club.  Freshman Tyrrah Miller had the first 3-hit game of her high school career.  Sophomore Emma Levi and junior Sydney Bostic both doubled with 2-RBI.
The junior varsity lost 21-9.  Freshman Hannah Warr had three hits with an RBI.  Sophomore Lexi Weaver had two singles and three runs batted in.  Freshmon Vada Walston batted in two runs on a hit.  Sophomores Shy Higham and Alexis Wallace both singled with 1-RBI.
