Lady Trojan softball takes a turn for the worse

By Ken K. Green Erratic pitching in the first inning and sloppy defense in the second cost the Lamar County Lady Trojans their first home loss of the season as they fell to Upson-Lee 7-4 here last week. The Lady Knights took advantage of three walks and a pair of hits to score four first inning runs. They added three unearned runs in the second inning thanks to four Lamar errors to lead 7-0. The Lady Trojans and pitcher Abby Walker settled down after that and held Upson scoreless the rest of the way on two hits, a walk and a hit batter. Lamar whittled away at the seven run deficit but could not get the big hit to get enough runs to catch up. In the second, Walker singled and scored on a double by Tyler Burnette. In the fourth, Megan Carter hit the first of her three doubles in the game and scored on an Upson error that got Walker back on base. She later scored on a base hit by Sarah Starling. Carter doubled again in the fifth and scored on a two base hit by Chloe Hubbard. Lamar loaded the bases in the sixth and got runners in scoring position in the seventh but could not score. The next day, the Lady Trojans traveled to Jackson for a varsity/JV doubleheader with the Lady Devils. Varsity dropped their game 5-2. Hailey McKneely walked, singled and scored both Lamar runs. Hubbard drove her home both times and Carter got her fourth double in two days. Junior varsity also lost 8-5. McKay Hickman hit a two RBI triple. Madison McCarty, C.J. Green, Jessie McDaniel and August Groover had one hit each. Tamara Watts pitched the entire game. The Lady Trojans open their Region 5AA schedule today in Zebulon in Pike County and travel to Macon tomorrow to take on Howard. The JV Lady Trojans play at Monticello Thursday.
