After having started off the season winning 11 of their first 14 games, the White County High School softball team fell on a hard time this past week, suffering a lopsided loss to Cookeville, on Thursday night.
The Warriorettes struggled to get much going offensively as they would finish the game with only three hits. Cookeville would jump out to an early 11-0 lead at the end of the second inning, and the game would be called at the end of the fifth inning due to a run-rule with the score being 13-2.
The Warriorettes would score all of their runs in the fourth inning. Macayla Rogan scored and got the inning going with a two-out single. Jessie Green would then get hit by a pitch to put runners on first and second with two outs. Sarah Parker would follow that up with a double that would score both Rogan and Green to cut the lead to 11-2.
Cookeville would score two more runs in the fifth inning to push their lead to 13-2, and the game would be called at the end of the inning.
Paige Parker would get the start in the circle for the Warriorettes. Paige Parker would go five innings giving up 11 hits, 13 runs, but only six runs were earned. She would strike out three hitters and walk just one hitter.
With the loss, the Warriorettes move to 11-5-2 on the season. The Warriorettes will return to action, on Monday and Tuesday, of this week. On Monday, the Warriorettes will travel to Carthage to take on Smith County High School. That game will begin at 4:30 p.m. The Warriorettes will then go to Crossville, on Tuesday night, to take on Stone Memorial High School in a District 6AAA matchup. That game is scheduled for a 5 p.m. matchup.
