Vires pitches North Laurel past Lady Trojans

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

FORT WALTON BEACH, FLA. — North Laurel finished its trip in the Fort Walton Beach Classic with two straight wins while going 3-2 overall during its stay in Florida.

“I'm happy with the way things went, especially the past two games,” North Laurel coach Becky Osborne said. “I thought we played well against North Hardin and I'm happy to get the win.”

Friday's Game

North Laurel 4, North Hardin 1

Osborne decided to go with Mikayla Vires on the mound and the freshman hurler didn't let her down. She picked up the win while allowing only three hits and struck out three batters.

Kailin Yantz and Vanessa Smith had a couple of hits along with Farris Strong during the win.

“Mikayla pitched great,” Osborne said. "I wanted to give her a chance and see how the team responded with her on the mound and they did a great job making the plays behind her. We only made one error.

“Kailin, Vanessa and Farris continue to hit well for us,” she added. “I thought we did well.”

Thursday's Game

North Laurel 2, Fort Walton Beach, Fla. 1

The North Laurel Lady Jaguars picked up a big win over host Fort Walton Beach, Fla. by picking up a hard-fought 2-1 victory.

The Lady Jaguars received a solid pitching effort by Megan Baldwin to improve to 5-5 on the season.

“This was a huge win for us,” Osborne said. “I believe we were up for this game mentally and ready to play.

“We’ve been kind of up and down during our first few games here, but we settled down and got a big win today.”

North Laurel scored runs in the second and fourth innings and Mikayla Vires led the way with two RBIs and a hit, as the Lady Jaguars pounded out 11 hits.

Kailin Yantz went 3-for-4, while Farris Strong and Blake Johnson each went 2-for-3 at the plate.

“I thought we came out fast tonight and did a good job of hitting,” Osborne said. “We strung together some hits and I was really pleased with the way we played.

“I thought Megan pitched very good,” she added. “She was on.”
