Varsity Softball Blasts Heritage
The Varsity Softball team traveled to Heritage High School last Thursday and beat the Lady Huskies by a score of 14-5. The Caps picked up their second conference win for Coach Dorrian Stephens. Junior Sarah Dodson was the winning pitcher, striking out 5 batters while once again playing excellent defense for the Caps. Freshman Taylor Trigg came on to relieve Dodson in the 6Th and 7Th innings and struck out one batter. Offensively, the Lady Caps were led by hot hitting sophomore Garett Hedgepeth who went 4 for 5 for the afternoon. Garett scored 3 times and collected 2 RBIs. Sophomore Nicole Bellamy had 3 hits, scored 2 runs and had 3 RBIs while fellow sophomore Katie Munger had 2 doubles, scored 3 runs and had 2 RBIs. Adding to the sophomore attack was Valerie Guzzo who had 2 hits, 2 RBIs and scored once. Other team members collecting singles were Apryl Olko (2 RBIs), Morgan Buonpane, Kristi Parker, Lindsey Warren (1 RBI), Mary-Margaret Hertz and Taylor Harrington. Buonpane, Parker, Warren and Lela Rucker all scored a run for Broughton. The crowd came to their feet for the final out of the game when a Heritage player tried to score on a passed ball. Third baseman Nicole Bellamy and catcher Gina Guzzo made some solid throws back and forth to finally get the last out of the game as the Lady Husky tried unsuccessfully to dive into home. This week, the Varsity will be home on Tuesday with Sanderson, away on Wednesday at Athens Drive and home on Friday afternoon with Millbrook. All games start at 4 PM. Admission to the Broughton home games is free. Good Luck Lady Caps!
