Softball

Northwest 6, Ridgeland 2: Macy Weeks’ bases-loaded, two-out double cleared the bases and broke a 1-1 tie in a four-run third inning to push the Lady Bruins. Weeks finished the game 2-for-2 and was the only player from Northwest (23-3, 7-1 Sub-region 7B-4A) with multiple hits.

“We kind of scattered them around tonight,” said coach Jason Brooker. “The middle of our order, if one of them isn’t getting it done, someone else is getting it done. The bottom of the order does a good job of making things happen. Everyone is chipping in.”

Northwest scored a pair of unearned runs in the fourth to seal the win. BriLeigh Baggett pitched a complete game, giving up three hits while striking out five.

Coahulla Creek 15, Adairsville 0: The Lady Colts (19-6, 9-3 Region 5-3A) scored 10 runs in the first inning and five more in the third to win a three-inning game via mercy rule.

Madeleine Kalafut scored three times, Nikki Hollis had a double and two RBIs, Sydney Ross was 2-for-2, Kala Franks finished 2-for-2 with two RBIs and two runs scored, and Sydney Wilson also scored twice.

Coahulla Creek used three pitchers to celebrate senior night.

“We spread our pitching around and got a lot of girls some action,” Lady Colts coach Josh Swiney said. “We didn’t have any walks.”

Erin Harden pitched 1 1/3 innings, striking out three with no hits or walks. Hollis pitched 2/3, allowing one hit. Shelbe Dilbeck pitched the final inning, also allowing one hit.

Sonoraville 3, North Murray 1: Kara Deal finished 2-for-3 at the plate for the Lady Mountaineers (9-15, 6-7 Region 5-3A). Samantha Stafford had the lone RBI for the Lady Mountaineers. Megan Pittman added a triple.

Deal pitched all seven innings, allowing no earned runs with five hits, two walks and two strikeouts.

LaFayette 5, Southeast Whitfield 0: Madison Pearson, Emily Beck, Chaya Drury and Lily Johnson each went 1-for-3 as the Lady Raiders (7-15, 1-7) dropped a Sub-region 7B-4A contest.

Gordon Lee 12, Christian Heritage 0: Megan McKinney pitched the entire game as the Lady Lions’ lone senior on senior night.

She allowed five earned runs off eight hits and three walks while striking out three. Mikayla Russell went 1-for-2 for Christian Heritage (7-14, 0-7 Sub-region 6A-A).

Heritage-Catoosa 12, Dalton 0: The Lady Cats (8-19, 2-7 Sub-region 7B-4A) managed just three hits, while six of the Lady Generals’ runs were unearned.

  • s-CCHS softball 8.jpg On a mission

    The local girls who visited the Dominican Republic last week on a mission trip through Score International tell a matching story.
    Toward the end of a visit to Pasitos de Jesus, a girls orphanage in Boca Chica, the children began singing the Gospel song “Mighty to Save” to their visitors.
    “It sent chills down your spine,” said Kala Franks, a rising senior at Coahulla Creek High School. “I felt they were ministering to me rather than us ministering to them.”

  • NW softball state championship file 1 mlh.jpg In the lineup again

    When Northwest Whitfield repeated as the Georgia High School Association Class 4A softball state champion last fall, that appeared to be the last time the majority of the Lady Bruins’ senior class would be teammates on the diamond.
    Now, thanks to the Stump on Sports All-Star Softball Classic, five of those six seniors will reunite to play together one more time.

  • Isabel Salinas 5 mlh.jpg All-Area Spring Female Team: Salinas hoping things keep getting better and better with age

    Isabel Salinas’ freshman season for Southeast Whitfield High School’s track and field team wasn’t up to her standards, and she really isn’t sure why it ended up that way in 2013. It could have been her injuries. It could have been not being in proper shape.
    One thing Salinas, nicknamed “Izzy” by friends and coaches, does know is that her sophomore year went a lot better.

  • poty seth.jpg All-Area Baseball Team and Player of the Year

    As a freshman at Northwest Whitfield High School, Seth Pierce came out of nowhere and was as dominant a pitcher as the area had. Finishing his “rookie” season with the Bruins, the left-handed Pierce led the area with nine victories — he also had one save — and showed overpowering dominance with a 9-3 record and 89 strikeouts in 73 1/3 innings. He finished his first season on the hill in Tunnel Hill with a 1.71 ERA while allowing 61 hits and 23 walks. Those numbers were also recorded against competition in a higher classification as the Bruins were playing Class 4A ball when the state had just five classifications. His performance earned him honors as 2012 The Daily Citizen All-Area Baseball Player of the Year.
