The MCHS Softball team competed in four more tough games this past week. The Tigerettes collected wins over Portland, White House, and Clay County. Their only loss came to District 9AA rival Goodpasture.
On Monday the 9th, Portland visited the den of the Lady Tigers. The girls from Lafayette jumped out to an early lead 2-0 after one inning and plated two more runs to make it 4-0 after three. Pitcher Chelsea Carter was able to hang on and get the win despite giving up two runs late. Kaitlyn Cartwright goes 3 for 4 and Alyssa Tuck goes 2 for 4 hitting in the game. In a great afternoon for a high school game Macon County defeats Portland 4-2.
On Tuesday the 10th MCHS traveled to Goodpasture. Macon just did not have an answer for the District 9AA first place team. After leading 2-1 after three and a half innings, it seems the bottom fell out of the bucket. A combined eight errors seemed to contribute to the lopsided defeat and MCHS looses by a final score of 5 to10.
On Thursday the 12th, Macon hosted White House for their second match-up of the season. The big inning for the Tigerettes came in the third when Clara Howser, Becca Ballou, and Mary Belton all scored runs with Belton and Katie Reid getting credit with the RBIs. Macon was able to hold off the Blue Devil charge and claim the district win by a final score of 3 to 2.
On April 13th, the Tigerettes traveled to Clay County. Belton, Carter, Ballou, Howser, Tuck, and Kaitlyn Main all collected hits as MCHS scored early and often. Macon was able to score a total of 10 runs on 13 hits and committed no errors. Final score MCHS 10 Clay Co. 0.
This week the Tigerettes are scheduled to host Friendship on the 16th and travel to Greenbrier on the 17th. The Lady Tigers then have a rare two game home stand against Westmoreland on the 19th and against Pope John Paul II on Friday the 20th.
