South Laurel wraps up 50th District’s top seed

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons/Staff Writer

CORBIN — The South Laurel Lady Cardinals completed a 50th District sweep Tuesday, cruising past Corbin, 12-4, on the road.

The Lady Cardinals finish district play with a perfect 6-0 mark after beating Corbin, Whitley County and Williamsburg twice each.

South Laurel jumped out to an early lead, scoring eight runs in the first three innings, but couldn’t close the game out. Lady Cardinals’ head coach James Burns said he would take the win, but he wasn’t very happy with the play of his team.

“That’s what happens when you come not focused,” Burns said. “You make a bunch of errors and you go through the motions, but luckily they made a few more errors than we did.

“Honestly, we didn’t play that good, but Megan Smith pitched an awesome game for us,” he added. “We made five errors in a row in one inning, three of those on caught balls that just came out of their gloves, so we were not focused at all.”

As for the Lady Redhounds, after starter Hannah Hart gave up eight runs (four unearned) on six hits through three innings, head coach Chris Hart switched things up by putting Christian Carpenter in to pitch. Carpenter went the final four innings for Corbin, giving up four runs on seven hits. Hart was charged with the loss.

Afterward, Chris Hart said the change was more of a preventative measure than anything else, but gave Carpenter credit for a solid effort.

“We just didn’t want to give them another round at Hannah (Hart), so we let Christian get in and face some batters,” coach Hart said. “She did a good job of keeping them off balance with some slower stuff, so give her credit for that.”

Brittany Vandeventer led the way for South Laurel with a pair of RBIs in a 3-for-5 effort at the plate. Chelsey Wemes was 2-for-3, while Smith and Hagan Burns were both 2-for-4.

The Lady Redhounds had as many hits as they did runs in the game as Hannah Hart led the way, going 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Lindsey Barton and Whitley Gatliff had the only other hits for Corbin.
