The Tigerette Softball team had a productive week on the diamond as this season winds down.
They played a double header against Central Magnet, traveled to Upperman, and had Senior Night against Jackson County.
With the unpredictable weather the Tigers wound up hosting Murfreesboro Central Magnet for a double header on Apr 26th. In the first game runs were at a premium as the Tigerettes came from behind to plate 2 runs in the top of the 3rd, in a frame that should have been bigger. However the key play of the game came in the bottom of the 3rd when the Tigerette infield threw out a Central player running home in what would have been the tying run, with less than two outs to preserve the victory. Cidney Woodard went the distance allowing 4 hits and 2 walks. Morgan Turner was 2 for 2 with an RBI while Woodard was also 2 for 2 from the plate. Tigerettes win the first 5 inning game by a score of 2-1.
In the second game someone unplugged the Tigerette offense. Macon plated 7 runs in the bottom of the 1st inning to cruise to a 8-0 win. Allison Shoulders got the start and threw 5 innings and gave up only 3 hits and 2 walks with 3 strike-outs. Jordan Shockley was 3 for 3 with 2RBIs and Jenna Russell, Brandi Garmon, and Shoulders all went 2 for 3 at the plate. Macon had a total of 13 hits in the game.
The Tigerettes traveled to Upperman on Apr 28th. The Tigerettes tied the game 6-6 in the 6th inning before the offensive explosion in the 7th. The Tigerette order scored 9 runs in which 8 of the 9 players in the line-up plated runs in that inning alone. Jordan Shockley led Macon, going 4 of 5 from the plate and scoring 4 runs. The Tigerettes get a district win by a final score of 15-6.
Macon held Senior night against Jackson County on Apr 29th in their final home game of the season. This team will say goodbye to three members of the Class of 2016. Taylor Dyer, Brandi Garmon, and Jordan Shockley will all be moving on following graduation and everyone wishes them the best of luck. Garmon was able to throw a no hitter against the Lady Lions asMacon wins in 5 innings by a final score of 10-0.
The Tigerettes are scheduled to wrap up the regular season next week with a game at Smith County on May 2nd. First pitch is at 4:30 pm in Carthage.
