CALHOUN - Hebron pitcher Chloe Tapley reached 1,000 strikeouts for her career on Monday while helping the Lady Eagles secure their fifth consecutive post-season birth in a 12-1 win over Calhoun Academy.
Tapley struck out 13 batters and needed just seven to break the milestone and extend her total to 1,006 in 646 career innings. She has a total of 199 Kâ€™s in 100 innings this season.
A complete feature will be published later this week in the Daily Times Leader.
Anyone who has had a chance to watch Wilma Davis and Nakeisha Walker on the court know they have talent. And this past summer, several of the countryâ€™s top high school players had that same opportunity.
Walker and Davis, now seniors at West Point High School were selected to participate in the USA Junior National basketball tournament in Columbus, Ohio; a showcase of some of the best high school talent on the court where the players get a chance to work one on one with college coaches and get on the radar of some of the nationâ€™s best programs.
Oak Hill continued their winning streak Monday afternoon to three games with a 12-2 victory over Central Academy, a game that saw plenty of hits for the Lady Raiders including a two-run blast over center field by Lauren Hitt for the exclamation point. It was her first home-run of the season.
â€śLauren is capable of hitting those like that, and she did today,â€ť head coach Marion Bratton said. â€śWhen she gets her timing down and sheâ€™s in that certain zone, she can pop it.â€ť
