Warrior softball keeps rolling

Washington tallies two more in the win column

Posted

Washington picked up an 11-1 win over Heritage Hall last Thursday and followed that up with a 7-1 win over Jones Monday.

Ellie Loveless was in the circle for the Warriors against Heritage Hall and turned in a 10-strikeout performance over four innings.

Emjay Lucas came on in relief  and struck out one batter while only needing eight pitches to finish the game.

Mikinzy Bost went 3-4 at the plate and knocked in an RBI.

Skylar Wells went 1-4 and knocked in three ribbies when she doubled in the fourth inning.

Abby Wood was 2-4 and Loveless was 2-3 and scored three runs.

“It was a little slow paced and we didn’t play great, but we didn’t play bad either,” said head coach Tylor Lampkin. “We didn’t hit it as well as we had been.”

In Washington’s win over Jones – which was only their second game in six days - Maggie Place took to the circle in a nine strikeout outing.

Washington only committed one error on defense in the game and committing fewer errors is something Lampkin has emphasized.

“I’ve been wanting us to get a little better defensively and cut down on errors,” Lampkin said. “It’s little things I know we can correct.”

Loveless was 4-4 at the plate and scored twice while also knocking in an RBI.

Washington was aggressive and multiple Warriors stole bases, including Bost, Loveless, Mattie Richardson and Wells (2).

Washington next plays at Jones today (Thursday) at 7 p.m.

Washington is 15-1 this season.
