Lady Colonels pick up two wins

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer


WHITLEY COUNTY — The Whitley County Lady Colonels made a clean sweep in doubleheader action with wins over Barbourville (16-5) and Bell County (8-7).

Assistant coach David Halcomb, who is standing in for head coach Amanda Moses due to an illness, said he was pleased with the effort during the two wins and gave the team credit for what he called solid play in all aspects of the game. He also said that time on the field and maturity as far as the game is concerned has played a factor lately.

"After playing well against Corbin Tuesday, I think the team took a few positives from their effort and overall, they have a little more confidence in themselves," Halcomb said. "The biggest thing I see is that the girls are starting to realize that they have quite a bit of talent and they're playing on instinct.

"Early in the year we were having to tell them what to do in nearly every situation," Halcomb added. "They're becoming more aware of game situations and it's noticeable in how they've played the past few games."

The Lady Colonels waited a while before they got the offense going in the opener of the twin bill, but once they did the flood gates opened.

After the two teams traded runs in the first inning, the bats were silent until the bottom of the fourth.

That's when senior catcher Jaden Dopel came up big, connecting for a three-run home run to put the Lady Colonels on top 4-1. Whitley County added one more run in the inning to push the gap to 5-1 at the end of four.

Barbourville responded with three runs of its own in the top of the fifth, trimming the gap to 5-4, but the Lady Colonels ended any ideas of a comeback with an eight-run outburst in the home-half of the fifth to make the score 13-4.

Whitley County ended things with three runs in the sixth to grab the 16-5 win.

Dopel led the way offensively with a 2-for-4 effort, including the home run. Rebecca Martin was 2-for-3 at the plate with a walk and three runs scored, while also earning the win in the circle.

Whitley Co. 8, Bell Co. 7

It may have taken a late-inning rally, but the Lady Colonels managed to pull out the 8-7 win with two runs in their final at bat.

Offensively, Lyndsey Terry was 2-for-3 at the plate for the Lady Colonels, while Morgan Macintosh was 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and two runs scored.
