Warriors undefeated at Bash

Weather doomed the championship game


The Washington fast-pitch softball team went undefeated at the Murray County Bash, notching wins over Norman (6-0), Sulphur (2-1), Lexington (2-1) and Lindsay (7-4).

The Warriors also picked up a 5-0 win over Dale last Tuesday.

All told, the Warriors allowed a mere six runs all week.

“We’re pitching and playing defense really well,” said Warrior head coach Tylor Lampkin.

This week Washington started a five-game District game grind.

They kicked off the week with two wins over Heritage Hall, 12-0 and 10-1.


Washington blew the game open with four runs in the first inning against Dale.

Elly Allison and Tinley Lucas both hit home runs. Lucas finished 2-3 on the day and Allison was 1-3 with three RBIs.

Ellie Loveless, Presley Lucas and Abby Wood all doubled in the game.

Maggie Place did Maggie Place stuff in the circle and struck out nine batters and giving up no walks.


Emjay Lucas struck out five batters and allowed one walk in the 6-0 shutout of Norman to open the Murray County Bash with a win.

“Emjay had a solid week pitching with a zero ERA,” Lampkin said.

Tinley Lucas was 2-3 with a double. Abby Wood also doubled.

“Abby and Tinley held their own in the Bash and did what they normally do,” Lampkin said.

Place had two RBIs.


The Warriors weren’t able to find much offensive success against the Bulldogs. They finished with five hits in the game. Allison and Presley Lucas each had an RBI.

Ellie Loveless struck out four batters and allowed two walks in the circle in the complete game.


Washington scored a run each in the second and fourth innings to hold on for the 2-1 win over Lexington.

Place had four Ks and no walks in the circle. She also doubled in the game.


Olivia Palumbo earned the 7-4 win Friday against Lindsay.

The sophomore gave up two earned runs.

“Olivia came in against a really good Lindsay team,” Lampkin said. “Overall she’s throwing it really well.”

Palumbo helped her own cause with a home run in the fourth inning.

As a team the Warriors had eight hits. Place and Presley Lucas each had two ribbies.

Lampkin was happy with the win but said a couple of errors led to his club giving up more runs than they should have.


The finals against Tecumseh had begun before lightning ended the game. The game was knotted at 0-0.

Heritage Hall

Loveless got the start at pitcher in the first game. She struck out eight batters with two walks allowed and only one hit.

Wood and Place each tallied three RBIs

In the second game Emjay Lucas got the nod from Lampkin.

She fanned eight batters with a walk and three hits.

Wood and Place were both 2-3 with three ribbies.

A point of emphasis for Lampkin has been the Warrior’s offensive game.

“We started to do a few things in batting practice to make things click better,” he said. “These District games are important games and we need to get more locked in at the plate. We need to get more comfortable in the box.

He said the bottom of his lineup has been coming up with quality at bats and singled out Emersyn Massey and Emjay Lucas as two players who are contributing.

The Warriors are 16-1 this season.
