SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks fall to Greenwood

-A A +A

 The visiting Lady Hawks jumped out to a 1-0 lead on senior Peyton Gardner’s solo home run in the top of the first, but the defending state champion Lady Gators of Greenwood scored twice in the bottom of the inning and held on for their second straight win. The Lady Hawks fell 5-2.

“It was a good game for us,” said LaRue County coach Aaron Howell. “We just made some mistakes, but it’s early in the season and we’ll learn from it.”

Sophomores Delany Eastridge and Jill Hughes each singled for the Lady Hawks.

Junior Emillee Cundiff allowed eight hits and four earned runs in six innings.

Greenwood ran its winning streak to 46 dating to last season, when it went 44-0.
