The White County High School Warriorettes’ softball team’s bats were hot on April 10, as the Warriorettes traveled down to Smith County and got a victory 12-2 in six innings.
The Warriorettes’ big inning came in the top of the third inning when they scored five runs to take a 6-0 lead. Paige Parker got the inning going when she singled to right field. Deandra Luna would then come up and sacrifice Parker to second base but would be safe on an error by the second baseman. Megan Anderson would then come up ground into a fielder’s choice by the second baseman scoring Parker and giving the Warriorettes the 2-0 lead. Dani Auberger then would single scoring Luna and advance Anderson to third base putting runners on first and third for Maggie Savage. Savage would take a 2-0 pitch over the center field fence for her first homerun of the season to put the Warriorettes up 6-0.
Savage earned the win for the Warriorettes. She threw six innings, allowing two runs, five hits, striking out eight and walking zero.
Homeruns for the Warriorettes came when Savage homered in the third inning, and Chloe Maynard homered in the fifth inning.
The Warriorettes collected 13 hits in the win. Parker, Anderson, Luna, and Savage each collected multiple hits for the Warriorettes. Savage went 2-for-3 at the plate as she led the team with four runs batted in.
With the win, the Warriorettes move their record to 7-4-1 on the season. The Warriorettes were scheduled to be back in action on April 11 against Stone Memorial at home. The Warriorettes will finish out their week when Warren County High School comes to town on April 13. That game is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m.
