Ladywave softball looking strong

The Meade County High School Ladywave Softball team has been demonstrating that they are a team on a mission this year, and on April 26, in their home game against Fairdale, they showed their strength at the plate as well as in the field again. Senior starting pitcher Mary Morgan, again stepped into the circle to lead Meade to another victory as she went six innings allowing only one run on four hits. Morgan also struck out ten batters and walked one. With Morgan doing her job on the mound, the rest of the team did theirs by backing their pitcher up in the field, as well as putting runs on the board.

Meade got things started in the bottom of the second with a two-out rally. Junior Madelyn Nevitt got things started with a stand-up double to left, followed by a walk, and a hit batter to load the bases. The next three batters all produced singles, clearing the bases to produce a five-run inning.

Morgan gave up a walk and a pair of singles in the top of the fourth that allowed Fairdale to get a run across the plate before Meade could get out of the inning, but that would be all Fairdale could do as Morgan settled back in to get the last two outs.

Meade would plate two more runs in the bottom of the sixth. Sophomore Rylee Webb reached on a triple to left, then scored on a single from senior Makayla Bloomfield. Meade scored their final run on a sac fly from Morgan that brought Bloomfield home to take a 7-1 lead over Fairdale. Freshmen Callie Wiles would replace Morgan in the circle and close out the game with a pair of strikeouts, giving Meade their 13th win of the season.
