The White County High School Warriorettes’ softball team couldn’t get anything going on March 28 or March 30 when they took on Warren County, on March 28, and then on March 30 when they took on Cumberland County.
On March 28, the Warriorettes traveled to McMinnville to take on the Warren County Lady Pioneers. The Warriorettes were only able to muster two hits in the contest and lost 5-0 to the Lady Pioneers.
On March 30, the Warriorettes took on the Cumberland County Lady Jets. The Warriorettes got one run in the fourth inning but fell to the Lady Jets by a final score of 6-1.
On March 28, Warren County scored two runs in the first, one run in the third, and two runs in the fifth inning.
The Warriorettes were only able to get two hits in the contest. Megan Anderson doubled with one out in the top of the fourth inning, and Macayla Rogan singled up the middle in the top of the sixth inning.
Maggie Savage took the loss for the Warriorettes. She threw six innings, giving up five runs (three earned), 12 hits while striking out eight Lady Pioneer hitters.
The Warriorettes tried to rally in the top of the sixth inning when they had runners on first and second with two outs, but a strikeout ended the threat.
On March 30, the Warriorettes saw many of the same problems that they saw on Tuesday evening. Cumberland County would take an early 6-0 lead, scoring three runs in the first, one run in the second, and two more runs in the fourth inning.
The Warriorettes scored their lone run of the game in the bottom of the fourth inning when Dani Auberger doubled to center field with one out. Anderson then flew out to center field, but Auberger tagged up and advanced to third on the play and would then score when the shortstop made an error to cut the Lady Jets lead to 6-1, but that was all the offense the Warriorettes were able to muster.
Maggie Savage took the loss for the Warriorettes. She went seven innings, giving up six runs (two earned), 11 hits while striking out nine.
Auberger, Jessie Green, Deandra Luna, and Gracie Villard each managed a hit for the Warriorettes.
With these two losses, the Warriorettes move to 3-3 on the season and 0-2 in District 6AAA.
