SWHS sweeps doubleheader with Knox

Somerset —  

Two games. 26 runs scored. 0 runs scored against.
That would be tale of Southwestern’s Thursday evening doubleheader at the War Path with Knox Central, as the Lady Warriors simply dominated the visiting Lady Panthers.  
Up until the Thursday evening twin bill, Jim Woodall’s Lady Warriors had been not played a game since March 19th, having Mother Nature affect their schedule. Despite the nine-day lay-off, the Lady Warriors dismantled Knox Central in the two games, winning by totals of 11-0 (five innings) and 15-0 (four innings).
“When you don’t get on the field for nine days, you wonder how your team will respond,” began Woodall. “I’m proud of all the girls because they came out to play ball tonight - it was a really good night for us. They hit the ball well, made some great defensive plays, and put down some nice bunts when we needed a squeeze.”
In game one, Southwestern began the scoring spree by tallying two runs in the opening frame. Senior Megan Burchett scored on a passed ball, while junior Sydney “Dozer” Fourman, who doubled to right field, scored on a single from sophomore Destiny Molden.
The Lady Warriors added one run to the total in the second inning, as freshman Gillian Gibson laid down a sacrifice bunt that allowed junior Allie Venable to score, putting Southwestern out front, 3-0. Venable led off the inning with a single to the left field grass.
Woodall and crew lit up the scoreboard in the bottom half of the third inning, as the ladies in blue and orange tallied four runs to run out to a 7-0 advantage over Knox Central. Fourman and Molden both scored on fielder’s choice plays, as sophomore Angel Beasley and Venable both picked up RBI’s. Beasley would score Southwestern’s sixth run of the evening on an overthrow from the catcher, while Venable would once again score on another sacrifice from Gibson.
