CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WILLIAMSBURG — The Williamsburg Lady Yellow Jackets found a way to stay warm during Thursday’s 23-1 win over district rival Whitley County — they never sat still.

Lady Colonels head coach Amanda Moses said she told her team the day before to dress warm for Thursday’s game because she didn’t want them to have any excuses once the game started. As it turned out, they were plenty warm.

“I guess they decided that as long as they were running around the bases, they wouldn’t get cold,” Moses said. “I was really pleased with the way they hit the ball today because that’s something we’ve really been working on in practice.”

The win was highlighted by a two-run homerun by Alexa Chaffman in the top of the second inning and a Jaden Dople grand slam to left field in the fourth inning.

Cody Thacker earned the win for the Lady Colonels, striking out six Williamsburg batters and walking just one through four innings.

Moses said the win was a big one for her squad, snapping a three-game losing streak and improving them to 2-4 on the young season.

“We really needed this win for a few reasons,” Moses said. “We were on a little losing streak and the fact that it was a district game made it important for us.

“Hopefully this will be a something we can build on and get the girls on track,” she added. “I think after the way they played, they realize that when you listen to your coaches, good things will happen.”
