Lady Bulldogs rout Huntland
o archrival Richland the previous day, the Cornersville Lady Bulldogs (9-5, 5-1 District) made Huntland their personal punching bag Wednesday, as they went on the road and squashed the Lady Hornets 24-1 in five innings.
Having defeated Huntland handily in their previous encounter on March 11, Cornersville sat out several of their starters and used the opportunity to give their underclassmen some playing time.
The Lady Bulldogs though still had plenty of bite in their offensive attack and pounded out 19 hits overall with six going for extra bases.
"We just wanted to get our younger players some experience," said CHS head coach Spencer Mitchell. "There's not a whole lot of difference between our starters and our backups. We've got 15 players and they're all pretty good."
Second baseman Katie Pigg, third baseman Alex Wolaver, and right fielder Summer Cole led Cornersville's hit parade. Pigg went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a homerun, 6 RBIs, and three runs scored. Wolaver tallied a pair of singles, a double, 5 RBIs, and three runs scored. And Cole had three hits, an RBI and two runs scored.
Lindsey Dalton, Jessica King, and Lori Beth Adams also registered two hits apiece for CHS with Dalton and King driving in three and one run respectively. Jessica Dillard added a three-run homer for the Lady . . .Pickup a copy of today's edition of the Tribune for full coverage!! Call and subscribe today for same day home delivery!!! 931-359-1188
