Whitley County uses eight-run fifth inning to knock off Williamsburg

CORBIN — By Les Dixon/Sports Editor

WHITLEY COUNTY — The Whitley County Lady Colonels were coming off a four-day layoff entering Tuesday’s 50th District battle with Williamsburg Tuesday and it showed early. The Lady Colonels struggled at the plate and on the field, watching the Lady Yellow Jackets jump out to a 3-0 lead.

But it didn’t take Whitley County long to shake off the rustiness.

The Lady Colonels began chipping away at their deficit with two runs in the third inning before exploding to score eight runs, as they cruised to a 13-3 win over Williamsburg in six innings.

“It took us a while to get going,” Whitley County coach Amanda Moses said. “We just started slow, but we really woke up there late. We were really hitting the ball good.”

Jadon Dopel turned in a solid effort during the game by going 3-for-4 at the plate with a triple, three RBIs and three runs scored while Brooke Hollingsworth also drove in a couple of runs and finished the game with two hits and three runs scored.

“Jadon has been consistent hitting the ball for us the entire season,” Moses said. “Brooke also hit the ball well today, too.”

Whitley County also received a solid pitching effort by sophomore Codie Thacker, who allowed only one earned run in the win while striking out a batter. Thacker also retired the final 11 batters she faced.

“It seems like Codie likes pitching from behind,” Moses laughed. “But seriously, once we fell behind she really pitched a whole lot better. She did good out there.”

    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.
