Lady Cardinals one win away from No. 500

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WHITLEY COUNTY — The South Laurel Lady Cardinals were two wins away from a historic milestone coming into Monday’s game against Whitley County.

After a 10-0 win over the Lady Colonels, James Burns and company can reach the 500-win mark today when they welcome Lincoln County to town.

As the Lady Patriots bring wins over Lexington Christian, Mercer County and Southwestern to town with them, Burns said he knows it won’t be easy.

“This is a pretty good team in Lincoln County coming in here, so we know we’ll have to work for this win,” Burns said. “Our kids are pretty excited about it and it’s something we’ve talked about, so I think they know how special it would be to get this win and be in some good company.”

As for Monday’s win, the Lady Cardinals banged out 10 hits en route to the win, with Brittany Vandeventer (2-for3), Amber Hyde (2-for-4) and Hagan Burns (2-for-2) each tallying two hits apiece. Hyde had two doubles and an RBI in the game, while Bailey Miller connected for an RBI double.

Megan Smith went all five innings for South Laurel, allowing three hits and walking one batter.

The Lady Colonels lost for the sixth straight time, but Lady Colonels coach Amanda Moses said she was pleased with the way her team played after giving up nine of South Laurel’s 10 runs in the first inning.

“If I could just delete that first inning from this one, I would be really happy,” Moses said. “But I was proud of the way our kids stayed in the game and made some plays as the game went on.

“We could have very easily just given up and let them continue to run wild, but we stood our ground,” she added. “We’re young and we continue to learn from games like this, so we’ll just have to keep trying to improve.”

Whitley County will be back in action Thursday against Clay County, while South Laurel will face Lincoln County today at 5:30 p.m.
