Bogue Chitto Lady Cats top Lawrence Co. 5-0

Behind a great pitching performance from freshman Codi Leggett, the district champion Bogue Chitto Lady Cats shut out Lawrence County Thursday night and picked up the 5-0 win.

The victory gives them a three-game winning streak, including two wins over Lawrence County and one over Brookhaven. The Lady Cats now stand at 14-7 overall and 4-0 in district play.

“The girls played well and everyone contributed,” Bogue Chitto head coach Scott Leggett said. “Our defense got out of some jams and we did a great job at the plate as well.”

Leggett was outstanding on the mound against the Lady Cougars. The freshman went the distance and pitched seven innings, giving up no runs on six hits, two walks and three strikeouts. Leggett also had a strong game at the plate, going 2-for-2 with one RBI on the night.

Bogue Chitto got on the board first with a run in the bottom of the second and followed up with a run in the bottom of the third to take the 2-0 lead.

The Lady Cats added one run in the bottom of the fifth and two more in the bottom of the sixth to give Leggett run support and took home the 5-0 victory.

Eighth grader Kayci Beth Wallace had a big day at the plate as well, going 3-for-3 with one RBI. Sophomore Karly Leake, senior Terrah Nelson and senior Cherie Savoie each had one RBI as well to round out the scoring for Bogue Chitto.
