Alexandria trounces Lapel for third place

Cook, Beeson power Tigers’ attack in 14-7 win

PENDLETON, Ind. — Alexandria lost a 7-3 lead and then rolled past Lapel to capture third place in the Madison County Softball Tournament with a 14-7 victory.

Junior Mariah Cook collected the win after she came on in relief of Halee Beeson in the third inning. Cook retired the final eight Bulldogs hitters she faced.

Ashley Beeson was on base all five times she came to the plate, but one of those times she wasn’t on for long. She hit a two-run homer in the third. She also had two singles and two walks and scored four times.

Taylor Jennings had three hits for the Tigers.

Lapel had eight hits. Bulldog leadoff hitter Alicia Sprague was the only Lapel player with multiple hits. Hannah Harless had a triple. Sophomore pitcher Kirsten Rich went the distance for Lapel.

Anderson 10, APA 0

Anderson senior Sara Clapp scattered four hits as the Lady Tribe claimed seventh place with a five-inning win over the Jets. Clapp had six strikeouts and didn’t issue a walk.

Mariah Miller had a double and two singles to power the AHS attack. She drove in two runs and scored three times. Donjenae Chamberlain and Sydney Schmitt each had two hits for Anderson. Bethany Sulc had APA’s only extra base hit in the third inning.

Madison-Grant 8, Frankton 3

The Argylls broke open a 2-2 deadlock with a six-run sixth. Katie Kohlmorgen and Kayla Martin had doubles in the inning, making a winning pitcher of Cierra Liddick.

The game’s first four runs came on solo homers. For the Eagles, Sydney Smith and Lexi Gray went yard. For the Argylls, it was Kaycie Pyle and Liddick.

Frankton tried to rally in the seventh and got a triple from Natalie McGuire, but a couple of baserunning miscues thwarted the comeback.
