The big blow in the Lady Cats huge four run sixth inning was a triple by Alli Fite as three runs scored. Fite was 1 for 2 with one run scored, a walk and two RBIs. Five other Lady Cats got singles: Alyssa Abron, Kelsey Wallace, Sadie Stroud, Kate Womack and Karlee Adams. Abron, Wallace, Womack, Adams and Macee Hollins also scored runs. Hollins also walked twice and Abron also walked once. Abron and Wallace also stole a base.
Bailey Haggerty got the pitching win going seven innings allowing 4 runs and 6 hits while striking out 5 and walking 2. The Lady Cats improve to 5-0 in district play and they are 18-4 for the season.
