By: Joshua Martin
The North Knox Lady Warriors competed in the second round of Class 2A Sectional Softball Tournament against the North Central Ladybirds.
The Lady Warriors fell with a tough loss to the Ladybirds by the final score of ten to zero, in six innings, at Sullivan High School, in Sullivan, Ind., on Wednesday, May 28, 2014. Both teams struggled to get much going till the Ladybirds broke away in the third and were able to plate two runs. The Warriors would try to get runners on base in the third to answer back but the Ladybirds were able to get an additional two runs in the fourth to make the score four to zero end the top of the fourth. The Warriors would get two on base but unfortunately no runs would cross the plate. The fifth was just as productive for the Ladybirds by scoring three runs as the Warriors would get one on base with a hit-by-pitch, again, no runners would score. The Ladybirds bats came to life once again and put three more on the board to make it ten to zero for the Lady Warriors looking at their last chance to get a run and make it to the seventh. Unfortunately the Lady Warriors would be sat down in order. They would finish the game with no runs, one hit and one error. The Ladybirds would score ten runs off of nine hits and no errors.
The lone hit for the Lady Warriors would come from Lauren Charlton who went one for three. Emily Mundy pitched the entire game for the Lady Warriors throwing eighty-nine pitches for fifty-five strikes.
