Prep roundup: Christian Heritage baseball takes win versus Murray

Christian Heritage’s baseball team earned an 11-0 victory Saturday in a mercy rule-shortened game at home against Murray County.

Chase Tidwell finished the game 2-for-3 with a double and three RBIs for the Lions, who improve to 7-11 overall. Jake Stokes also had a 2-for-3 day, but his was highlighted by a home run. He also scored twice. Tyson Cooper went 2-for-3 with two RBIs for Christian Heritage.

Brady Souther pitched all five innings for Christian Heritage and allowed three hits and one walk while striking out four.

The Lions took a 4-0 lead in the first inning, scored once in the second inning and exploded for six runs in the third. Murray County did not report individual statistics by The Daily Citizen’s deadline.


• Northwest Whitfield’s boys team completed its two-day, 36-hole outing at the Hardaway Invitational at Bull Creek Golf Course in Columbus and had two individuals shoot in the seventies in the second round.

Chad Flanders and Ethan Hayes each shot a 78 for the Bruins, who scored a 328 as a unit. Tyler Clayton (85) and Chandler Lomax (87) also had scoring rounds for Northwest. Northwest coach Greg Brown said there were 21 teams.

“I’d say we were probably between 12th and 14th,” Brown said of the team’s finish. “Not far from the middle of the pack.”
