Girls win back-to-back

SoVaNow.com / May 03, 2017
The Bluestone varsity softball team got their third win of the season with a very convincing 5-4 victory over Prince Edward last week in Skipwith.

In the first inning, Meredith Finch singled. Morgan Tharpe followed with a single which resulted in Finch scoring after two stolen bases.

De’Quasha Smith reached on an error but picked up the RBI, plating Tharpe. Chasitee Baskerville and Katlyn Shanklin after both reached the bases with back-to-back walks in the first.

In the bottom of the second inning, Sophie Sherwood reached on a walk, stole all three bases and scored.

Shanklin held her ground on the mound, keeping the Prince Edward Lady Eagles scoreless for three innings. But the Eagles rallied in the top of the fifth by tying the game up 3-3.

Shanklin shut them down in the sixth, giving the Lady Barons an opportunity to rally. Mia Boswell and Sherwood both reached on walks while stealing three bases, with both eventually scoring.

The Eagles scored one run in the top of the seventh but Shanklin ended the game with her fifth strikeout, leaving the score at 5-4 for the win.

Lady Barons coach Shelby Brown said, “With back-to-back wins, we look to continue our progress in Tuesday’s road game against Buckingham.”
