Re-Cap of Varsity Softball Action

The Lady Caps had three games last week and came out on top in two of those games. They traveled to Athens Drive last Wednesday and lost a heart breaker in extra innings. The Caps lead the entire game 2-0 but gave up two runs in the bottom of the 7Th. The Cougars went on to win 3-2 in the 8Th inning. Apryl Olko (double, single), Garett Hedgepeth (two singles), Cole Bellamy (2 singles) and Gina Guzzo (single) all had hits for the Caps. Valerie Guzzo and Cole Bellamy each drove in a run and Gina Guzzo and Sarah Dodson scored for the Caps. On Thursday, the Caps hosted Millbrook at Pullen Park and avenged an earlier season loss, winning 7-0. Sarah Dodson, who was on the mound for Broughton and got the shutout while recording 4 strikeouts and only giving up 4 hits. Only three Millbrook players reached first base until the 7Th inning. Garett Hedgepeth continues to swing a hot bat, clobbering a double and two singles. Valerie Guzzo (triple, single), Katie Munger (2 singles), and Gina Guzzo also had hits for the Caps. Valerie Guzzo and Lela Rucker each scored twice while Apryl Olko, Morgan Buonpane, and Garett Hedgepeth scored once. Broughton recorded two double plays in this game. Apryl Olko caught a fly ball in left field and made an incredible throw to catcher Gina Guzzo to nail the runner tagging up from third. The other double play was made by third baseman Nicole Bellamy fielding a ground ball, then throwing over to Kristi Parker to get the first out at first base. Kristi then threw home to Guzzo as the runner on third tried unsuccessfully to slide into home plate. The Caps closed out the week with a very convincing win over rival Sanderson, 7-1, with Sarah Dodson recording the win. Apryl Olko (double, 2 singles), Katie Munger(3 singles) and Valerie Guzzo (two singles) led the hitting attack for Broughton. Gina Guzzo, Kristi Parker, Cole Bellamy, and Sarah Dodson all recorded singles. Katie Munger, Kristi Parker and Cole Bellamy all scored two runs while Apryl Olko scored one run. This week, the Lady Caps will travel to Leesville on Tuesday and Sanderson on Thursday. Both games start at 4 PM.
