BHS Lady Panthers obliterate South Pike

Here is a roundup of how area slow-pitch teams fared Tuesday night.


Brookhaven High 22, South Pike 1

No, that’s not a misprint. The Brookhaven Lady Panthers (8-5) knocked the cover off the ball Tuesday in a two-inning game. BHS used 16 hits to score seven runs in the first and 15 in the second of the win.

Lauren Coghlan, Meg Foster, Lynsey Nations, Angel Wilkinson and Kyja Willis all hit a double apiece for coach Mandy Vinson and her staff. Wilkinson and Willis each hit a home run with Willis hitting the best kind — a grand slam.

Willis finished the game with seven RBIs. Wilkinson drove in six runs and Coughlan drove in four. Kaysha Register, Madi Miller, Layla Woodall and Emma Campbell all also hit safely for Ole Brook.

Brookhaven hosts Lawrence County on Tuesday of next week and travels to North Pike for a pair of big region games.


Northwest Rankin 11, Lawrence County 10

Lawrence County fought back to score three runs in the top of the seventh but came up a run short of tying the game on the road Tuesday night at Northwest Rankin. LC led 6-3 after three innings before a five-run fourth gave NWR the lead.

Skyler Speights led the LC offense with six RBIs. Sydney Pevey, Ashley Holden, Abbey Pevey, Jordyn Bridges, Lily Stephens, Raylee Ready, Anne Claire Sistrunk and Abbey Turnage all hit safely for coach Marc Howard and his staff.

Abbey Pevey and Ready had a double apiece and Speights blasted a pair of home runs including a grand slam.

LC hosts South Pike today.
