The Halifax County High School jayvee softball team thumped William Campbell, 11-1, Monday.

The jayvees were the only Comet team able to get their game in after heavy rains forced the cancellation of everything else on Monday and Tuesday.

WC scored an unearned run in the first inning, and struggled afterwards.

The visitors finished without a hit and fanned five times.

The Comets scored four runs in the first, sparked by a two-run double from Carol Fears. Olivia Noblin also got a runner home on an error and Faith Lester cracked a run-scoring double.

HCHS manufactured two more runs in the second. Abbey Bales, Rose Spainhour, and Lester singled in the inning and Lauren Chaney got a run home on an error.

Fears helped plate another run in the third on an error. Kennedy Dyer added a run-scoring single in the fourth. Madison Hailey cracked a two-run single in the fifth.

HCHS finished with 11 hits. Lester had three safeties and Hailey had two. Bales also had two hits early.

“Everyone hit the ball really well. We moved players around a bit and everyone had a great game defensively. Abbey Bales and Carol Fears got to work on the mound and both girls did a good job,” coach Reagan Cannon said.
