Prep roundup: North Murray gets key region victory

North Murray High School’s softball team withstood a poor showing earlier this week and an hour-and-a-half rain delay Thursday to win 6-4 at home in Region 5-3A play against Gordon Central.

The Lady Mountaineers (5-9, 4-4) led 2-0 early in the game, but the Lady Warriors tied the game in the top of the fourth. Inclement weather paused the matchup, but North Murray scored twice in the fourth and once in the fifth and sixth.

“We talked about finishing a ball game and playing seven innings no matter what happened,” Lady Mountaineers coach Steve Granger said. “I was a little worried when we had an hour-and-a-half delay in the fourth inning with the game tied 2-2. We came right out and scored two runs after the delay and scored in each inning from there on out.”

North Murray lost 10-1 Tuesday versus first-place Ringgold.

“Everything we talked about that we didn’t do well Tuesday, we did tonight,” Granger said. “I’m happy with how we played.”

Baylee Sutton went 2-for-4 for the Lady Mountaineers, while Megan Pittman finished 2-for-2 with a triple and a double plus two RBIs. Amber Bandy also had two RBIs.

Kara Deal pitched five innings, allowing three earned runs off three hits and two walks while striking out one. None of the runs were earned.

Sutton pitched the final two innings, allowing one run off one hit and four walks while striking out one.

Ringgold 1, Coahulla Creek 0: Erin Harden lasted the entire game, but the Lady Colts’ offense couldn’t help her out in a Region 5-3A loss.

The Lady Tigers, who are an undefeated 9-0 in league play and in first place, scored its lone run in the bottom of the third inning. It was an unearned run and won’t harm the ERA of Harden, who only allowed four hits and two walks while striking out six for Coahulla Creek (14-6, 5-3 Region 5-3A).

“We were so close on this one,” Lady Colts coach Josh Swiney said.

Coahulla Creek only had two hits in the game, one from Madeleine Kalafut and another from Sydney Ross. Swiney was proud of his team’s effort against the region’s top squad, which defeated North Murray 10-1 on Tuesday. The Lady Colts were coming off a 4-2 loss Tuesday versus Cartersville.

“We got runners on base, but just couldn’t get that big hit,” Swiney added. “It was a great ball game. Our girls fought hard.”

Mount Zion-Carroll 10, Christian Heritage 2: Hannah Heath pitched four innings and Erin Leonard pitched the last inning in a mercy-rule loss for the Lady Lions (5-11, 0-5).

Heath and Leonard combined to allow just six hits and no walks.

“We just had numerous errors and mental mistakes,” Christian Heritage coach Mike Leonard said.

Julia McDonald went 1-for-2 with a walk and run scored. Erin Leonard also had a run scored, and Heath had an RBI.

Armuchee 14, Murray County 0: Lindsey Dunn and Ashlee Strong each had one hit for the Lady Indians (10-6, 4-3 Region 7-2A).

• Southeast Whitfield’s game with Heritage-Catoosa was not played due to inclement weather. It is rescheduled for 5:55 p.m. Wednesday at the Lady Raiders’ field.

  • Wrestler of the year 2014 2 mlh.jpg All-Area Wrestling Team and Wrestler of the Year: Winning another title was the only goal for Wheeler

    When Dalton High School wrestler Sidney Wheeler won a state title for the first time two years ago as a sophomore, he admitted he became a little complacent about what it would take to replicate the feat — perhaps not noticeably so to most observers, but enough to take success for granted. Wheeler believed it a matter of course that he would win state again, and he thought the second title would simply be the middle child in a high school three-peat.
