Lady Comets dump Rockets 10-2 in Breast Cancer Awareness game

SoVaNow.com / March 25, 2013
Halifax County High School varsity girls softball has enjoyed a terrific start this spring, with a 5-1 overall mark. The Comets play border rival Person County again this week.

Wednesday, HCHS defeated Person, 10-2, on Breast Cancer Awareness Night, a special event held annually to raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer.

HCHS played well. Courtney Epps and Taylor Barnes handled the pitching, as Epps went five and Barnes wrapped up with the final two frames.

Epps homered in the second inning and bolstered the Comets’ momentum.

HCHS played well overall. HCHS stumbled at the beginning, surrendering two unearned runs. But the Comets came right back and got the runs back. Halifax had a variety of contributors.

Megan Puckett went 2-for-4, while Tayler Mosley was 3-4.

Coach Melanie Saunders saw improvement with this win.

“The girls were much more focused tonight. We just need to keep improving each and every practice and game. We will get there if we keep working hard,” she said.

There was another special event held along with the softball action. “This was the breast cancer awareness game and it went great. David Conner threw out the first pitch in memory of his sweet E, Elizabeth Conner! Thank You to all the local businesses that helped us with this awesome event,” she said.
