St. Joseph softball
St. Joseph's softball team went 2-2 in recent high-scoring games.
Mount Vernon-Enola took a 15-2 victory Monday at City of Colleges Park.
The Lady Bulldogs committed eight errors. Gracie Keathley allowed 10 hits. Keathley (a triple), Bailey Atkinson and Emma Pasierb had three of St. Joseph's six hits.
"Errors were out worst enemy today," said coach Debra Wilhite. "We had too many to give ourselves a chance."
Friday, the Lady Bulldogs defeated Conway Christian, 29-2.
Keathley was the winning pitcher in her first game back from an injury in a 16-15 victory over Heber Springs on Thursday. Emily Briggler was three for four with eight RBI and two home runs that cleared the fence. Lauren Holbrook had two hits and three RBI and Chloe Kordsmeier also had two hits.
"This was a great game to watch —seesawing back and forth," said Wilhite. "I was proud that the girls pushed forward even when they were behind."
The Lady Bulldogs lost their season opener to Magnet Cove, 16-6, as Briggler was thrust into emergency mound duty and allowed seven hits.
"Emily is not a pitcher — she is our shortstop — but both of our pitchers were injured and she stepped up so we wouldn't have to forfeit," Wilhite said. "I'm very proud of her for stepping up."
Bailey Atkinson had two hits and four RBI.
