Lady Patriots roll over Delta
Marshall Academy closed out its 2010 softball season last week with a win over Delta and a loss to North Delta.
Kat Moore enjoyed a three-for-four performance at the plate as the Lady Patriots routed Delta 12-3 on Monday, Sept. 20, at home.
Also getting one hit each were Arin Leigh Valentine and Caitlyn Brooks.
Elizabeth Skelton pitched a complete game, giving up four hits, walking four and striking out three.
On Tuesday of last week, the MA girls traveled to Batesville to play North Delta, the top team in District 1-AA. They dropped a hard-fought 7-4 contest.
The Lady Green Wave scored three runs in the first inning off two Marshall errors.
“But after that we played with them the rest of the game,” said head coach Susan Rodgers.
North Delta’s senior pitcher kept the MA bats silent for much of the game, but the highlight came when Chelsey Gilliam hit a two-run homer over the center field wall.
Also getting one hit each for the Lady Pats (9-14) were Brooks and Moore.
Skelton again pitched a complete game. She gave up three hits, walked eight and struck out one.
It was the last game for Rodgers as the team’s head coach. She is stepping away from on-the-field duties but continuing her teaching and athletic director responsibilities at MA. She coached the Lady Patriots five years and led them to a state runner-up finish in 2006, back-to-back state championships in 2007 and 2008 and an overall crown in 2008.
The Marshall Academy team submitted a special “thank you” honoring Coach Rodgers.
“Thank you for all you have done for us, and we will really miss you next year on the field. Thanks for all that you have done, Coach Rodgers, to make our program one that we can all be proud of.”
