Lady Indians beat Byers
By BARRY BURLESON
Coach Summer Pannell likes her Byhalia Lady Indians’ work ethic and competitiveness to begin the slow-pitch softball season.
Byhalia is off to a 1-2 start with a win over Marshall County rival H.W. Byers, and losses to Independence and 5A school South Panola.
“I am very proud of the way our team has played,” Pannell said. “They have put in a lot of hard work the past few weeks to improve upon some not so great seasons in the past.
“We are playing competitively with teams that ran over us in the past. That shows the determination and the will to compete that our players have. We are very proud of that.”
The Lady Indians cruised to a 17-4 victory at home August 16 over the Lady Lions.
Amber Kimbrough and Chasidy Kizer had home runs. Tracy Summers added a triple.
That win came two days after a season-opening, 13-3 loss at South Panola.
Kimbrough, Mandy Howard and Myesha Jones scored Byhalia’s runs. Recording runs-batted-in were Mandy Howard, Brandy Howard and Jessica Garrison.
The Lady Indians then lost a nailbiter August 25 at home, 3-1 to Independence.
Jasmine Humphreys drove in teammate Casey Cross for Byhalia’s lone run.
Coach Pannell’s team was scheduled to visit H.W. Byers on Tuesday of this week. Next up will be a doubleheader at North Pontotoc on Thursday, Sept. 6. It starts at 5 p.m.
