CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Staff Writer

JACKSON COUNTY — The North Laurel Lady Jaguars picked up two big 49th District wins by upending both Clay County and Jackson County.

The Lady Jaguars (8-3) handed the Lady Generals a 12-2 loss while delivering 10 hits in the win, and defeated the Lady Tigers in dominating fashion, 17-0 while collecting 15 hits.

“Tonight was a great night for us,” North Laurel coach Kyle Mink said. “We took care of business and come out the gate hot in both games by scoring runs in the top of the first in both games.  

“As a team, we had great at bats and put pressure on them with our base-running,” he added. “Both pitchers had excellent command and controlled the games. Overall, it was just two great team performances.”

Game One

North Laurel 17,

Clay County 0

The Lady Jaguars put the game away early, scoring three runs in the first inning and five in the second before putting the finishing touches on the victory with a six-run third inning.

Mikayla Vires picked up the win on the mound, allowing only one hit while striking out eight batters and tossing only 61 pitches.

She also posted an impressive 4-for-4 effort at the plate, collecting two doubles and six RBI. Teammate McKenzie Mills went 3-for-4 with two stolen bases, one RBI and four runs scored while Natasha Colwell was 2-for-4 with an inside the park home run and two RBI. Olivia Miller went 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI in the win. Kailin Yantz went 2-for-2 with a double, one RBI and four runs scored.

Game Two

North Laurel 12,

Jackson County 2

The Lady Jaguars jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first two innings before scoring nine runs in the top of the fifth inning, defeating the Lady Generals, 12-2.

Eighth-grader Madison McDaniel picked up the win on the mound, giving up two unearned runs while scattering only three hits. She struck out six batters in the win.

Hunter Deaton went 2-for-2 with two RBI and two runs scored while Yantz posted a 2-for-4 effort at the plate with a run scored and two RBI. Vires collected a double, one RBI and one run scored, as North Laurel finished the game with nine stolen bases.
