KEMPER - Hebron gave up a run on a two out error Monday night in the fifth inning. It was their only blemish.
The Lady Eagles pounded out 13 hits on their way to a 15-1 victory over Kemper Academy in district action.
Tori Nichols, who finished 3-for-4 with four runs scored had the gameâ€™s first RBI in the first inning with a triple knocking home Rebecca Falkner. Nichols later scored on an RBI single by Beverly Blake to give Hebron a 2-0 advantage.
Four runs in the third, sixth and five in the seventh inning rounded out the scoring on one of Hebronâ€™s best offensive performances of the season.
â€śWe had two good practices on Friday and Saturday,â€ť head coach Cass Tapley said. â€śAfter a rough week last week we had to get our focus back.Â We still went to sleep in the field a couple times but we were a little more aggressive at the plate and on the bases today.Â â€ś
Blake finished with a game-high four hits in the win while scoring three runs. Alaina Hill, Falkner, Chloe Tapley, Holly Hudson, Broooke Griffin and Hannah Loper all reached base with a knock.
Chloe Tapley again showed why sheâ€™s one of the best in the region and the MAIS with a 20 strikeout performance including a streak where she sat down 11 in a row. She gave up just two hits in the win.
In the JV game Millie Hudson drove in 4 runs for HCS but that was all the scoring they would do in the 13-4 loss.View more articles in:
