Tigerettes crush Spring Hill on Senior Night

Posted

LEWISBURG — On a night honoring their five seniors, everything went the Tigerettes’ way as Marshall County dominated Spring Hill in a 16-1 blowout victory on Tuesday night.
Prior to the first pitch, the Tigerettes honored seniors Ellie Luce, Jessa Lancaster, Mallorie Wooten, Taylor Pickle and Olivia Wooten.
The seniors came through on their night and went a combined 6-for-11 at the plate, with four runs scored and a combined seven RBIs.
Pickle also took the win from the pitcher’s circle with a dominant outing, going the distance and allowing one run on three hits.
The Lady Raiders drew first blood and scored the game’s first run on a RBI fielder’s choice by Callie Tuck, but Pickle was able to settle in and force a ground out to end the Spring Hill first inning.
The Tigerettes responded in short order, plating five runs in the bottom of the inning on four hits, including a double by Pickle, and a pair of errors to help Marshall County take control early.
Following a scoreless second inning, Spring Hill put a runner on base via Tigerette error in the third, but Pickle was able to pitch to contact and got a fielder’s choice and a fly out to end the inning.
And then the monster inning came.
In an 11-run third inning that eventually forced the 15-run lead mercy rule, Marshall County took advantage of three Spring Hill errors and connected on seven singles, a double and a triple before the game was finally called when the Tigerettes reached the 15-run lead threshold.
Pickle, Demiyah Blackman and Courtney Lynch all went for a pair of hits, with Luce and Pickle recording doubles in the blowout.
Lynch also tripled in the third inning as well.
Luce had a night, going 3-for-3 with three RBIs to her credit.
Pickle went 2-for-3 and also knocked in three runs.
Mallory Woodward and Jahna Meadows-Richardson added two runs apiece as well.
The night was a marquee celebration of a senior class that despite having to adjust to a new coaching staff, found a great relationship with first-year coach Amy Bonner.
“I consider it such an honor to have had the opportunity to coach this group of seniors this year. I'm so proud of everything they have accomplished and how much they have grown as young women. They are incredibly talented on the field, but I respect and appreciate them just as much off the field,” Bonner said.
“They are good, kind people and have so much love and support for each other. I have been blessed to be even a small part of their softball careers. I know they will go on to do great things and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for each of them.”
The Tigerettes traveled to Tullahoma on Wednesday for the regular season district finale, however results were unavailable by press time.
Marshall County closes the week with non-district games at Giles County on Thursday and Moore County on Friday.
