Varsity Softball, 1A Sectional 60 Semifinals at Rising Sun- Tuesday, May 21

Rising Sun 10, Jac-Cen-Del 0 (5 inn)

Rising Sun’s Bryce Kendrick-

Sydney Bostic and Sydney Pitts played big parts in the victory.  Bostic reached base four times which included a single and a double.  She had 3 RBI with the latter two coming on the final swing of the night.  Pitts pitched a shutout with two strikeouts against no walks and three hits. She also singled twice and had three defensive assists.  One assist was part of a 1-3 double play with Cora Poling.

Poling singled and doubled with an RBI.  Tyrrah Miller singled and doubled driving in three runs.  She also made a nice running catch on the left field foul line.

We continue to swing the bats well but have to get back to playing better defense.  The last four games we have lost some of our aggression in attacking balls.  We are letting balls come to us and that’s when errors are more likely to occur.

Rising Sun faces Hauser at 6 pm Thursday in the sectional title game. The Lady Jets held off North Decatur 4-3 in the other semifinal.
