Lady Bulldogs 2015 60th District Champs
Pikeville, Ky After a shaky first inning the Lawrence Co. Softball team settled in and took care of business in a 17-5 Mercy rule victory over Pike Co. Central in the 60th District Championship game.
District MVP Ciana Bowen took care of the pitching throwing all five innings striking out eleven and only giving up one earned run improving her record to 14-3.
Natalie Rice and Addy Frazier took care of the hitting. Rice had the big hit a bases clearing triple down the right field line in the second inning as she finished with four RBI’s. Frazier also had four RBI’s from her leadoff spot.
Savannah Cyrus, Hali Young, Ally Marcum, Haleigh Peck and Tosha Rose all had at least one run batted in.
The win improved the Dawgs to 22-12 and the loss dropped the Lady Hawks to 19-15. Both teams will be back action Monday in the 15th Region Softball Tournament at Stonecrest in Prestonsburg.
The All District team included Lawrence Co MVP Ciana Bowen as well as Hali Young, Savannah Cyrus and Tosha Rose.
” Came out a little tight in the first inning and I had to call timeout to calm them down,” said Head Coach Kenny Horn.
“Rice had the big triple to get the momentum and I thought that was a back breaker for them.” Been talking all year about somebody getting a big hit, and we got a couple tonight. 2010 was out last district title so to get one was nice but next week is what we are looking forward to.” Though our crowd tonight was very good and it was awesome to see Coach Horn said.
Can’t wait for Monday”
The Lady Dawgs will begin Region 15 play Monday at Prestonsburg’s Stoney Crest Park. They will face nemesis Johnson Central, the Region’s top team at 23-10 who lost a shocker to Magoffin Co. earlier this week in the District finals at Sheldon Clark.
Gametime is 10:00 am.
