Red-Hot Start

Lady Redhounds pounce Barbourville in season opener

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons  Sports Editor

CORBIN — The Corbin Lady Redhounds wasted no time showing why they’re picked to be one of the top teams in the 13th Region this season.

Behind a no-hit effort from senior hurler Hannah Hart, the Lady Redhounds pounded out nine hits through seven innings, cruising to the 7-0 win in their season opener.

Hart struck out 12 batters and missed a perfect game by just one batter, which reached on a dropped third strike.

Amber Allen paced the offense for Corbin, knocking in a pair of runs, while going 2-for-3 at the plate. Katie Bernardo was also 2-for-3 at the dish, tallying an RBI and a run scored.

After the win, Corbin coach Chris Hart was pleased with his team’s effort, but admitted he would have liked to see his team hit the ball a little better.

“I thought we played well as a team and that’s what you want to do in the first game of the season,” Chris Hart said. “I do think we could have hit the ball better than we did, but I also think that is something that will come as we progress in the season.

“It’s still early and I think our girls had a bit of a hard time adjusting to the speed of the pitching, but that’s something you just have to do,” he added. “We have a big game against North Laurel Thursday, so hopefully our kids will come out swinging the bats a little bit better than we did today.”

The Lady Redhounds took the lead in the bottom of the second when Allen connected for a two-run double that brought Bernardo and Sydney Reynolds in to score, giving the home team a 2-0 lead.

Corbin pulled away in the third inning with four more runs on four hits, a walk and a Barbourville error, stretching the gap to 6-0.

Corbin added a run in the seventh inning to make the final score 7-0.
