Lady Redhounds earn a split

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

MONTGOMERY COUNTY — Chris Hart’s Corbin Lady Redhounds turned in a stellar effort during their trip to Montgomery County Saturday.

The Lady Redhounds split a pair of games and evened their record at 2-2 on the season.

“I thought it was a good learning day for us,” Hart said. “I’m really proud of the way we played.”

Corbin won its first game, a 10-5 decision over Russell, before losing to Montgomery County, 16-1.

“We really played well against Russell,” Hart said. “And then we ran into a very good Montgomery County team. But this is going to help us with the experience we will gain facing teams like this.

“I told the girls we are very young and we’re going to take several losses, but it’s going to make us a better team.”

Hart said he is impressed with the way his team is hitting the ball, but still needs work on the defensive side of things.

The Lady Redhounds pounded out 14 hits against Russell, but committed 10 errors during their two games Saturday.

“Our hitting is our strongest point of the team,” Hart said. “We are hitting the ball really well. We’ve got work to do defensively. We are making too many errors.”

The Lady Redhounds jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back during their five-run win over Russell.

Hannah Hart led the way at the plate and on the mound. She went 3-for-4 with two RBI while striking out eight batters while allowing only one earned run in the win.

Callie Schoolcraft drove in two runs and collected a hit while Whitley Gaitliff went 2-for-3 with one RBI. Sydney Reynolds had two hits and one RBI while Kelly Farley finished with two hits.

The Lady Redhounds committed seven errors and managed only two hits during their 15-run loss to Montgomery County.

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
