Lady Cardinals drop first fast pitch game

By BARRY BURLESON

The Lady Cardinals played the first fast pitch softball game in school history last week.

And even though they lost 5-3 at home to West Union, coach Jeff King was upbeat.

“We played well,” he said. “I was pleased with our first game ever.

“It’s a growing sport. We will play fast pitch in the spring and slow pitch in the fall.”

Alana Hale had two hits for Potts Camp, one of those a double. Amanda Christian also had a hit.

Laken Cook was the losing pitcher.

West Union scattered its runs over the first four innings of the contest.

The Lady Cardinals scored one in the first and two in the third.

West Union also won the second game of the doubleheader, 20-11.

“I played a lot of young girls in this one,” King said. “I treated it sort of like a junior varsity game.”

Ashton Gandy started on the mound and took the loss. Also throwing were Hale and Brooke White.

Several Lady Cardinals slapped two hits each – including Gandy, Ashley Collela, Jaleeza Reed, Brittany Nichols and Stephanie Irving.

“We hit the ball well, but we gave up a lot of walks and made some errors,” King said.

Eight of Potts Camp’s runs came in the third inning.

The Lady Cardinals are scheduled to host Hickory Flat on Thursday of this week. The twinbill starts at 5 p.m.
