Comet softball 10-1 after wins over Tunstall, Broadway / April 15, 2019
Head coach Woody Bane is brimming with confidence over the work of the Comet varsity softball team so far this season.

Halifax is 10-1.

“We’re doing really well.

“We have 12 girls that are very talented. They really compete. We have good approaches at the bat, really battle at the plate,” said Bane.

Bane said the Comets are running the bases well. He also said pitchers Raegan Ridgeway, Lauryn Chappell and Madison Barnes are performing well in the circle.

Halifax played in a tournament at Brookville last week. The Comets defeated Broadway in a well-played game, before losing to the host team in a one-run loss.

On Thursday the Comets earned a 9-3 win over Tunstall.

The Comets capitalized on a strong mound effort by Barnes. She limited Tunstall to three runs over seven innings. Barnes struck out four and walked one.

Tunstall took the loss, as pitcher DiVivi struggled in the circle. Comet hitter Skyla Strohm homered in the sixth inning.

The Comets had a strong hitting performance, with 13 base hits. Katie Cole, Karina Velazquez and Lauryn Chappell had multiple hits. Cole led the way with three hits in four at-bats.

Tunstall had nine hits.
